Bits & Tips : How I Re-purposed my Peanut Butter Jar.

A jar of peanut butter is sort of MUST HAVE item in our kitchen.


Besides to use as spread on our toasted bread, our son loves eating peanut butter directly out of the jar with fork or spoon. Yes, as his snack! At the end of the month, there will be several pieces of empty peanut butter jars lying around in our kitchen. Being an organizing junkie, throwing them in the bin is not an option.


So, I’ve turned some of them into something like these,

P1040755 Paper-Clips-in-Jar!

They can be perfect little gift for special occasion like Teacher’s Day, no? Simply put a nice ribbon & wishing card, then voila you have a cute handmade present! It’s cheap, affordable and practical.


P1040758 They fit perfectly inside my drawer.



I really love how my Paper-Clips-in –Jar compliments my other repurposed items in the drawer.

Organizing thing is always fun, huh?

Going Green.

err..sorry for lack of updates.

Please blame the hormonal changes. Yes, I am currently carrying another baby in my womb *hurrah*


Keeping the house neat and organize are not my top priority at the moment. As long as there are clean clothes to be wear, then I am all okay. Anyway, I managed to ‘visit’ my abandoned mini garden at our backyard last weekend. To my surprise, most of my plants are at the stage of “nyawa-nyawa ikan”. They are almost down kissing the ground. hurrmmmm… ‘thanks’ to Cfu (the husband) who taking over my job as temporary gardener while I was ‘away’ to deal with my early trimester sickness T______T


Well, there are saying goes, let bygone be bygone.

So….I’m moving on and adopting new green ‘pets’!


20130602_17251220130602_172441   I was delighted to find an organic nursery section in Giant hypermarket at Bandar Kinrara. Brought home a few plants; Rosemary, Mint and Laksa Leaves which well known as ‘Daun Kesum” for RM 10 per pot.


With that, our garden-improvement-plans checklist number one, DONE!

i) To grow some herbs in pots (i.e : basil, rosemary, parsley)

ii) Hang flower pots.

iii) Re-paint old containers.

iv) Revamp an old barrel that has been abandoned by our house contractor into plants container.

v)  Working on the other piece of land by the porch.
