If you are wearing contact lenses, you should buy a smaller contact lense container to not waste so much contact lense fluid!
You will automatically produce less packaging waste, because the fluid can last about twice as long..

Plastic Folders

There will come a time when your plastic folders are no longer usable for applications or other presentational purposes. But you don’t have to throw them away!


With the more robust folders you can for example make
→ a pattern for sewing or
→ an organizing-system for earrings
! 🙂


And you can also use the Clips for many different purposes. For example as
→ a picture hanger or for re-sealing your tea-packaging


How will you use your clips? 😉

Ohrdnung ist das halbe Leben...

You can easily turn your old plastic folders into an organizing system for your earrings!

Therefore you will need:

  • an old plastic folder (it should be a folder made of thicker plastic)
  • a nice box in which you want to keep your earrings


And this is how to do it:

  1. measure your box and cut the folder into rectangles which will fit into your box
  2. poke holes into these plastic rectangles (caution: the holes don’t have to have the same distance… see picture)
  3. put earrings through the holes and organize them in your box

Voíla! 🙂


By the way…

For closed earrings it won’t be enough to poke just one hole. Here’s how I solved the problem:
