If you’re an avid traveler, you’ve likely put some serious wear and tear on your luggage. And it may not be holding up quite like it used to! If that’s the case and you’re in the market for some new luggage, we know just what you can do with the suitcase you won’t need anymore. Instead of throwing out that old piece of luggage, learn more about how to recycle an old suitcase instead.
What To Do With That Old Suitcase
Turn it into a coffee table
This first option is geared toward those old leather trunks you might have laying around. You’ve most likely seen this concept at your local “hipster” store, known for underground trends that tend to go mainstream after one to two years. It’s as easy as simply attaching wooden legs to the bottom of your trunk. In some cases, trunks are tall enough to where legs won’t even be needed. It may be one of the more unique ways to recycle an old trunk, but it’s a useful way to do so.
In most cases, your luggage that is “beyond use” may not be too bad after all. In fact, someone else may find it incredibly useful. Consider donating your suitcase to a homeless shelter or secondhand store. It could mean a great deal to someone in need.
Use your luggage for storage space
If you’re like most people, you’re almost constantly looking for more storage. So, why not utilize that old suitcase? Instead of throwing away or donating your suitcase, let it become the storage needed for your shoes, extra clothes, etc. Stuff it on a high shelf in your closet or under the bed for easy access.
