When you organize a garage sale, there are numerous items at the end that are not sold, and you bring them back with you. An alternative to that is obtainable here is selling all the remaining stuff online but what if its a non-success? In this scenario, you can reuse all the ripe items in your own homestead until you organize your next garage sale event.

"In 2012, a study done by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency revealed that 251 million tons of trash were created by citizens in which 87 million trash was recycled."

The above statistics represent how creating millions of waste can harm the environment of our planet. If it is possible to reuse old items instead of throwing them into the bin, then we must do it! We have a list of 10 most displayed items of garage sales that you can easily reuse if those are not sold in your garage sale.

How To Reuse Old Items If Not Sold In Garage Sale:

1. Clothes:

Clothes can be reused if buyers don't buy them from your garage sale. Use old clothes to clean your house, decorate your walls by making some craft out of it or you yourself can wear them by making a different attire from it. For example, women can turn an old skirt into a party wear palazzo or a man's shirt can be converted into a woman's tee and more. 

2. Photo Frames:

When we speak about photo frames, the basic visual that forms in our minds is keeping pictures in it, hanging the frame on the wall or keeping it on a table, but that's not the endpoint. There are other ways through which you can bow a useless photo frame into a useful one. 

For example, you can bunch up multiple photo frames and make a proper collage from it, or you can use it as a tray, or you can keep your jewelry in it and so on. 

3. Tools:

Tools such as wrenches, screwdrivers, wheelbarrows, hammers, or more can be reused by you. For example, you can convert wrenches into hooks to hang clothes or keys. Similarly, you can reuse other tools also. 

4. CPU or Small Tables:

How about converting an old CPU into a mailbox or a small box to keep stuff like toys, tools, or small pieces of clothes? Interesting right? All you need to do is to put effort to do a little bit of customization, and that's it. 

5. Suitcases:

We all love traveling, but when our suitcases are too old, we think about throwing it into the trash and buy a new one. But what if it is not sold in your garage sale or even on online platforms? The good idea is, turn them into small side tables. 

What you can do is connect wooden sticks below suitcases and keep it as a decorative item in your house. The other advantage you can have from this is you can even store your stuff inside the suitcase, and above it, you can keep decorative stuff such as flower vases, photo frames, books or you can even sit on it and more. 

6. Jars and Glass Boxes:

You can use old jars or glass boxes to store food items, water, beverages. You can use them to keep stationery items or convert it into a beautiful flower vase.

7. Mini Fridges:

Mini fridges can be converted into a small almirah in which you can store clothes, books, tools, games, jewelry, kitchen utensils, and many other things. Creativity is everywhere; all we need to do is think about how we can implement it! 

8. Cardboard Boxes:

Use cardboard boxes as a shoe rack, bookshelf, clothes storing box, small table, nameplates, trays, jewelry boxes, and more. Making stuff using the card box is box is very easy, you can decorate your house and give it a brand new look according to your likes.

Kids are quite fond of cardboard boxes, and they are highly skilled when it comes to making a craft. Give them the cardboard box, and they will definitely go out of the box to make something unique from it, or they can use it to make their school projects too. 

9. Ketchup Bottles:

You can use old ketchup bottles to store basic items. For example, you can store shampoo or food cream or facewash into the ketchup box if you don't want to throw it into the trash.
