Re-steep your tea bags
One teabag can make two cups of tea—possibly even three or four. To get the most bang for your brew, continuously steep your tea in a teapot on the stove. If you only drink one cup in the morning, place your used teabag in the refrigerator and re-purpose it later in the day to relax your eyes. Cool teabags do wonders for eye puffiness and irritation. Even the most trivial household items can be reused over and over. There are over 80 uses for old socks!
Bake cookies with minimal cleanup
Got a birthday party coming up? Bake multiple batches of cookies on the same piece of parchment paper. Most brands are oven safe up to 450 degrees—and as long as there’s nothing stuck to the paper that could easily burn, it’s safe to reuse.
