Your toilet paper rolls can live beyond kids craft time or the recycling bin! Use them for starting a garden- fill with seedling soil and place seeds inside. The tubes are compostable (or you can just grab one of the top corners and tear it away when youre ready to transplant).
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. 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.
