Use old soup cans to organize playroom and office spaces. For extra organization, place a magnetic board in the room that the cans can stick to. It's much better than picking up Legos after you step on them at 3 in the morning.
You give so much to your baby-- finally time to make them earn their keep! Okay maybe you can't put them to work, but you can upcycle some of the products they go through so quickly. Just don't get mad when they are older and try to upcycle your vintage wedding dress or fine china.
