Next time you’re about to toss that toilet paper roll in the trash, think again! On this episode of "Easy Does It," crafter Kirsten Earl shows Ereka just a few of the many innovative ways to reuse and recycle old rolls.
Looking for a great way to impress people at a party? You can create your own boom box out of a toilet paper roll and a set of cups. Simply decorate the roll as you like, cut out a slot the size of your phone, and cut holes in the cups just big enough for the toilet paper roll to fit in. The best part? It really works. “It’s a fun party trick and a great craft,” Kirsten says.
If your cords are a tangled mess under your desk, Kirsten has a great tip to organize them. “All you need are some trusty toilet paper rolls and a box,” she says. Wrap up some of your stray cords, slide them into toilet paper rolls, and label each roll with its proper use. Arrange the rolled up cords in a box for easy access in the future.

You can even use a recycled roll for a little spring-cleaning. Try placing a paper towel roll on the end of your vacuum’s arm for a little extra reach. Pinch the end of the cardboard to get into those pesky narrow spaces.
