What are you doing with your food waste? Instead of throwing it away, consider using it for compost.
Composting is a simple concept and any peels from fruits and vegetables are great compost material. Have a separate receptacle in the kitchen for composting and it will provide great nutrients for your soil in a garden.

This is a very creative and easy way to make use of old cereal boxes.
Take a pair of scissors and cut the cereal box diagonally. Now you have a magazine holder! You can also use it to store tall books or anything else that stands up vertically.
