Wastelands of Suburbia

A place where the cast-off ephemera of the last four generations comes to rest, and is discussed fondly....Like junk, or the injection-molded minutiae of history? Welcome home...Junkyards, yard sales, roadside oddities, thrift stores and more-your memories are deep inside the box, so keep shaking.

You have to be careful with dollar store stuff-what looks cool in the store doesn't always translate once you get home. Take this water bottle for example-the flip-up cap does not seal tight enough to hold fluids inside. I could write it off and say, 'it's only a dollar' or I can find a way to repurpose. While it is poor at holding fluids, it's perfect at holding zip ties-not to mention dispensing them one at a time. A simple shake is all it takes. Available at Dollar Tree.
