4. Repurpose cans into flatware containers. Ever notice how some brands have super cool logos with fun, contrasting colors? When used out of context, those brands can help coordinate color schemes. Many summer foods are meant to be eaten with your hands, utensils aren't always necessary — until it's time for dessert, that is. Keep your flatware handy and on the table by containing it in empty soup cans (washed out thoroughly, of course).
Don't you hate when Campbell's soup labels add weird new graphics? They need to stick with this classic look that Andy Warhol made so famous, so that we can rinse them out and use them to display utensils on a buffet or pens and pencils on a desk. See the rest of this spread

Tin cans are the ultimate in affordability — and are pretty stylish without an ounce of trying. The iconic Campbell's soup can is a Warholian image I've always loved to death. Consider also: large crushed-tomato and tomato-sauce cans. Those colorful labels are things of beauty, and they're so fun on outdoor tables. They're the perfect size for napkins, condiments and silverware, as seen here.Recycle cleaned used cans straight to the table and look for older coffee cans (rusty or not, and yes, people collect these) at thrift stores.

1. Make soup. Just finished a kitchen remodel? Good. Now make soup. It's not just an old wives' tale. Having soup, especially straight broth, can reduce congestion and help prevent dehydration.

Besides, what happened to those old boxes of Pringles or Nachos, that you purchased on the flight back home. Don't discard them as yet because they can be repurposed as cutlery or pen holders. With a little more ingenuity you can even turn them into a low wattage lamps.
