Money Saving Tips: Recycle your perfume boxes to greeting cards

by xin on December 3, 2012

Christmas is around the corner, buying gifts can cost quite some bomb alright, and cute small greeting cards don’t come cheap either. And most people do not keep the cards anyway.

So, what if there’s a way that can help you save money and the environment same time?

If you love perfumes, I am sure you have tones of pretty perfume boxes around that you are not sure what to do with them, unless you are the sort who love to keep perfume  in their boxes.

So one day when I was doing my usual spring cleaning, I discovered many empty perfume boxes that I have been keeping because they look cute and are of good quality, so, while staring at them, I suddenly had a light bulb moment – why not I cut it up and recycle them?

It’s really simple, unfold the boxes, cut, and just keep the pretty portions, and of course unless you think the ingredient lists are cute :)

There you go, a bunch of color cards that can be recycled to greeting cards! It doesn’t just help to save the trees, it saves your pocket too!

If you have any neat ideas of money saving – do share them!

The Guerlain’s box is so cute and girly, I think I’d recycle it as a bookmark too. :)
