Each time you crack an egg open, instead of tossing the shell into the trash, drop it into an open container that you keep in the fridge. (I’ve always saved my shells, but my friend Susan suggested keeping them in the fridge – works beautifully.) When the container is full, crush the shells into small bits and sprinkle them around the base of your plants. The sharp eggshells will deter slugs, snails, and other bugs from nibbling on your garden and add a touch of calcium to the soil.

such a cool idea! Took an old smelly couch, stripped it and made it into an outdoor couch. I used fence pickets, sanded them smooth, stained and attached to front back and sides. I used premium quality pine for the arms and top. Total cost, roughly 150 dollars. Still needs cushions and pillows... anyone want to sew some for me?? Reuse, Recycle.
