The old Ikea fleece blanket serves as an internal lining that will stop the glass bottles from knocking each other, while giving the bag a soft spongy feel.

and serve as a beautiful centre piece on the coffee table:


Now they are quite safe to handle, and could probably last much longer (and I can reuse them next year!).

The last time we moved, a lot of our furniture got scratched because we didn't have enough shrink wrap for everything. So to still not spend too much on disposable material for this move, I used some of our old baggy t-shirts to wrap around smaller furniture: drawer units, cabinets, bedside tables, etc. After the move, they can then be cleaned again and proceed to their next stage: cleaning cloth :)

Then I thought of our collection of wine bottle corks:


Simply twist and screw it onto the sticking out screw.

The sharp pointy screws are now well wrapped up and no one would get hurt. Hoarding on the old corks did pay out eventually.
The rest of our wine cork collection was made into trivets :)

It's really simple - just pull it over the wine bottle and that's it. It prevent any glass bottles from knocking on each other or on other hard/glass objects in the shopping bag. Very useful tip. And I'm really impressed with Aeon that they actually saved and reused thousands of those fruit wrappers that are otherwise disposed of, at the same time educating their customers.

But we don't have to stop just there do we? I have kept quite a few of those wrappers from my shopping trips to Aeon, just to reuse them again and again. And today I've just figured out another possible function for these little darlings.
