I know we’ve all heard the term ‘upcycle’ – but sometimes it’s hard to look at an ordinary item and find an alternative use for it – so this week, Melissa Maker helps by sharing 6 Extraordinary Uses for Ordinary Things!

Thrive Market is a new and totally rad online store that sells the top organic and healthy products at wholesale prices shipped straight to your door. At Thrive Market, you can sort the entire catalog of products in one click by categories or dietary preferences like “vegan,” “gluten-free,” or “sustainably sourced.” That feature is SO helpful! Thrive Market’s mission is to make healthy living easy, affordable and accessible to everyone. Shop around and you’ll find all your favorite trusted organic and non-GMO premium brands at up to 50% off! I was pretty amazed when I saw some of my faves going for pretty discounted prices (kind of made me want to move to the USA).

I hope these life hacks help you in your home – let me know in the comments down below if you would like to see more videos like this one!

So not much has gotten done other than enjoying your book. Thank you!! Hope your book tour is going flawlessly. Deb L, Long Island NY

  2. Hi Melissa, I sent you an e-mail a couple of week ago regarding how to clean the new washing machines that suggest you use the “Allfresh” once a month in the washer. They are very expensive to purchase. Do you have any suggestions for an alternative cleaner? Thank you for all your wonderful work to help us keep our homes tidy.
