One of the neatest things to do with an old drawer is to paint it, add legs and embellishments, and you have a caddy for anything from bills (eeww!) to recipes, to whatever.  They really come in handy.  This isn't a new idea, but it's a goodie.

Catmagic writes: Thank you for the lovely comments. Fellowjunker, just check yard sales for old drawers. Also, if you can get away with, check out your local dump for old dressers, night stands, etc. Of course, it will depend on the rules in your area whether you will be allowed to salvage. Never hurts to ask. Posted: 6:19 pm on September 19th
