One thing that’s certain in life is that it’s moving at a fast pace, and everything that we love is getting more expensive with each passing year. Take beer, for instance. I can still recount the days when a bunch of us from school would go to pick up pints of beers from the local wine shop for as little as 20 bucks. But the worst thing of all is having beer or any alcohol in a plastic cup. The cost of glasses are outrageous and I cry every time I see a scratch on my precious glasses.

A low cost solution I came across was to recycle beer bottles. These ideas are simple DIY ideas to do at home and just need 4 hours of your weekend. So take out your superglue gun and get ready to recycle beer bottles.

#1 Wine Glasses
