We all feel bad when we break a teacup, but you don't have to throw out the matching saucer. They can have a second chance at life in a variety of ways around your house. As I mentioned below, I snagged a bunch at an antique mall for $0.25 each to use a soap dishes but I recently found a variety of ways to use them around the house to add a cheap, easy, and fun touch of elegance.
They look adorable as saucers for small plants around the house:
Or set one on your bedside table to collect your rings, keys or coins at the end of a long day!
I am sure you all have some ingenious ideas on other ways to use them so please share because I still have a bunch I need to find homes for!
