Discard it as is. Roll it up and secure it with some string or tape. Don't bother to put it into another piece of plastic (the bag) which adds to the plastic pollution of the planet. Alternately, run a sharp knife down each of the rows of bubbles. Even cutting every-other row will decrease the volume significantly. Is there a UPS store or FedEx outlet ...

I am thinking about using some kind of wire brush or metal curry comb. There are some wire brushes in the shape of cylinder that you could simply bowl on that bubble wrap. If brush is sharp enough it should perforate the bubbles. Please note that I've never tested that "lifehack" so it's just a guess.

You could find a friend who plays a stringed instrument (or perhaps a school band class) and ask them if they'd be interested in taking some or all of your cards. Amazon (and probably other places) sells something called a "pick punch" and those old gift cards are perfect for making guitar/mandolin/banjo picks (a pick is also called a plectrum, but most ...

Use a set of them (even numbers, choose how many pairs you want) and create a sensory memory game, filling pairs with the same substance: Audio version: Small objects of different size and texture that will sound differently when the containers are shaken. Random suggestions: rice, beans, sand, pebbles, a single small rock, pine needles, even water if the ...

I’ve used these for overnight kayaking, bushwalking or hiking to store very small quantities of food such as honey, coffee, sugar, premixed milk powder and cocoa, as well as needle and thread, sunscreen or adhesive tape, for anything where I want to cut down on weight, protect from moisture, or from being squashed. Lots of daily life items come in ...

If you have some wood outside that needs some protection, old motor oil is cheap alternative for store bought wood preservers. I am not any kind of wood working professional so check other sources about this. I have a small wooden fence protected with old motor oil in my backyard and it holds great. Here is a video of someone using this technique.

It is possible you don't need to change the engine oil as often. For some reason, many Americans think they need to change the oil every 3000 miles when the manufacturer's recommendation is more like 15000 miles. So the first step to reducing waste is to check what the manufacturer recommends. Many modern cars have a function in the engine management ...
