We all buy toilet paper to use at home. When the roll is done, there is the cardboard tube that gets tossed in the trash.
But those cardboard tubes can be used around the house in very surprising ways. Here is a list of 11 things you can use them for.
1. Deco art mirror

2. Toy car storage

Cardboard is awesome for seed starters because the cardboard will degrade and decompose over time. This will allow your plants to grow and blossom.
4. Desk organizer
You should definitely try and create this neat and cute stationary organizer if you need a place to store all your pencils, pens and other office supplies. All you have to do is to spray paint numerous toilet paper rolls a solid color, and then attach each roll to a piece of cardboard.
5. Bird Feeder
Cover a roll with peanut butter, and then coat with bird seeds.
