1. Toilet Paper Roll Planter
Instead of throwing out all your toilet paper rolls, consider using them to grow some herbs. They are a fantastic way to get seedlings growing in your indoor space. These little seed starter tubes eliminate the need to go out and by expensive peat pots. The great thing about these is that you can pop them directly into a bigger pot or your garden bed when they need more room to grow. No need to remove them from the cardboard!
