There is one item I need creative ideas for, which is old glass bottles that had cooking oil in them.

To reuse potato chip bags - take two simple shapes, 2 squares or 2 triangles, sew them together right sides facing and leave a small opening. Then turn it right side out (now all your sewing seams are on the inside) stuff this mini pillow with crinkly chip bags and sew your opening shut. My cats, dogs, and baby nephew all love these. For the cats I add in a little catnip too.
If you are interested in learning to turn your old clothes into 'new' clothes there are a lot of websites and several books that make is super easy. But I also like the idea of using them as stuffing for pillows or dog beds, especially if it is clothing that is too worn out to donate.

I guess what people need to do, is to start thinking like kids again and use their imagination! Keep a pad of paper and a pencil with you at all time. Write down any ideas that come to your head. Expand on the ideas. You will probably toss out 99% of the ideas, but 1% of them will be acted upon and you will be happier in life too.

I also have two web servers in different US cities, last year I upgraded both of these to energy efficient Intel i-series CPUs. I configured a custom webserver with a fast e3 CPU and four hard drives but it only draws 440 ma @ 120VAC which is extremely low power consumption for a server. For my backup server I chose a refurbished desktop PC (thus reusing) with an i5 series CPU, also very energy efficient. The best part is formatting thee Windows installation and replacing it with a secure operating system.
I told you I'm a geek.
We also put our raw kitchen scraps and tons of coffee grounds (coffee is required to write code) in a compost bin, thus reusing what would otherwise be wasted. Then we grow container tomatoes and such with our compost - or that is the plan - the compost is new.
