Wine Box Liners

Money Saving Tip of the Month (featured column)
submitted by K. Freeman of California

I buy the inexpensive wine that comes in the box. After I use the last of the wine, I tear open the box and remove the sturdy plastic liner inside to recycle in a new way.

First, I rinse the liner by opening the spigot, holding it under the tap to fill, then closing the spigot, sloshing it around, then thoroughly drain it. I hang it up to dry thoroughly for a week or so with the spigot open.

Camping Pillows and Cushions

When it is thoroughly dry, it can be blown up by putting your mouth on the spigot, blowing it up to the desired pillow firmness, then closing the spigot. It can then be used for a camping pillow by placing it into a pillowcase.

Or, as an outdoor cushion by making covers from cut up old t-shirts, tied together at the corners. These can be removed easily for washing.

The pillow can be packed easily in a suitcase, or for winter storage, by simply letting the air out to flatten!
