#50: Use ceiling fans to circulate air.
Use your ceiling fans. Ceiling fans are for more than just cooling your home in the summer; they can be used as an air circulation tool in the winter. Check the direction that your fan is blowing. Make sure the switch is set so that the air is blowing down. It will help to push that warm air back down.
#51: Turn old ties into a toy snake.
Make a toy snake with old ties. Stuff a necktie with cotton, sew the openings closed on either end and make a face on the wide end by adding button eyes and a red felt tongue. The snake can also be used as a draft catcher for doors and windows
#52: Borrow from friends.
Borrow from friends and neighbors if you will only use it once.
#53: Repurpose empty toothpaste tubes.

#54: Reuse egg cartons for storage.
Egg cartons or old ice cube trays are ideal for storing earrings, buttons, paper clips, thumbtacks, nails, or stamps inside a drawer.
#55: Go with a shovel.
Use a shovel instead of a snowblower if you can. You'll get some exercise and help the planet.
#56: Make a cork trivet.
Make a cork trivet with wine corks to protect your counters. Take 50, a metal tie and tighten them together.
