Repurpose and Upcycle To Organize (VIDEO)

I have something to admit. I’m a secret upcycler. (Is that even a word? Spell check says it isn’t.) I love taking castaways and recycling them into something useful. Perfect example: toilet paper rolls. We all know what to do with toilet paper (I hope!), but what about the rolls? Do you toss them? I hope not. In my mind, that’s wasted money. That’s why I partnered with Charmin; to show you how a little creativity can turn ho hum toilet paper rolls into organizers to use about the house.

Check out the video I created with Charmin below to see the fabulousness that I was able to create with my toilet paper rolls. I’m sure you’ll find an idea or two that will help you upcycle and become more organized.

Let’s talk! Do you upcycle? If so, have you ever used toilet paper rolls? Let us know in a comment!

It’s so awesome that you were able to organize your home with the things that you have upcycled – in this case, toilet paper rolls. CUTE!

That’s a cute idea. I save my toilet paper rolls for my friend’s gerbils. They love to chew them up.

My daughter loves upcycling like this. She is so creative, but didn’t get that gene from me. Great post thanks!

We craft with toilet paper rolls all the time. Instruments for the kids, bracelets, little animals. The possibilities are endless!

It’s so interesting how many things that you can do something with besides just throwing them away. Good job!

Recycling is the way to go! I’m not that good at upcycling though.

I actually did something like this for a craft project at a daycare that I worked at years ago. The kids loved it as did the parents.
