Repurpose Your Junk Mail In The Kitchen

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Although I should have bought a proper set of kitchen funnels by now, there are too many things that can be used instead. More often than not it’s the top of a soda pop bottle that’s been cut off, but since we’ve tried to eliminate buying such things we’ve been on the lookout for something new. How about the junk mail?

Even if we’ve used envelopes in other ways around the house (we’ll still attest that they make better dustpans than the real thing), the kitchen isn’t really a place we’ve thought to put them to use. Though the transferring of dry ingredients is probably one of the best things to use this method with, as long as your process is quick, it will probably work well with wet ingredients too!

How do you put old envelopes to work? Do you cut the corners off and make them into book marks? Put them in the recycling? Let us know in the comments below!
