Reusing the Tops of Plastic Bottles


As a miser, I am definitely not pro bottled water.  Not only is the excess of plastic bottles a nuisance for the environment, it’s also hard on our wallets.  There is also much debate about the lack of fluoride in our diets as more people drink bottled water, but I won’t get into that.

Having said this, even if you drink tap water, as I do, it’s hard to avoid never buying a bottle of water.  So, once you are done with your water, you could always recycle the bottle (of course) or you could reuse it to seal plastic bags.  Here is how:

  1. Cut the top of your bottle at the neck with a pair of scissors.
  2. Insert the plastic bag through the neck of the bottle.
  3. Seal the lid shut.
