Thrifty Thursday: Improbably uses for Pantyhose

Even those old runny pantyhose can provide unexpected storage solutions.

1. Want to keep your rolls of wrapping paper neatly rolled and tear-free? Tuck them into tubes made from cutting the legs off a pair of pantyhose.

2. When you're bundling up your blankets for storage during the summer months, wrap them securely in the band cute fro the waist of the pantyhose.

3. Get the maximum shelf life from your onions by tucking them in the cut-off leg of a clean pair of pantyhose, tying a knot between each onion. The air can circulate freely, keeping the onions fresh, and you can hang the onion string in a cool, dry area of your kitchen or pantry. When you need an onion, simply cut off the bottom one, leaving the knot above intact.

4. You can use the same technique to store flower bulbs over the winter.
