What’s a regular, every day item most people see as “trash” but you see as “treasure” because of your hobby?

  1. I’m a geologist. I treasure the rocks folks resent when they find them in their garden/yard.

    Also, I keep those little skincare product sample containers as well as empty spice containers. I never use the random samples that are sometimes included in a skincare order because I have extremely sensitive skin. I clean out whatever is in them, wash the container, and then repurpose them as either travel containers for my own products, or as containers for gifts – everything from homemade spice mixes to lip balm.

  2. You know those little rectangles of plastic that sometimes come on the twisted end of a loaf of bread? I used one as a guitar pick as a joke and now I just sort of have one that I use because I like the shape and stiffness a lot

  3. Any kind of item with designs on them like brochures, posters, labels, etc. are great inspiration for graphic designers like myself. It’s actually kind of sad that they get thrown away since someone has worked hard to design them.
