Cotton Buds and Lollypop Sticks
Miser, skinflint, stingy git call it what you will,,but when it comes to the addiction of plastic crack every penny saved is more I can give to GW for yet more minis.
I've been found upside in dumpsters, skips and bins all around my local area salvaging interesting bits n bobs for various projects for about 22 years now.
It's caused some interesting conversations but luckily no legal action so far.
So whats the point of the waffle? Erm.. anyway the idea is to share some of the more socially more acceptable things you might find useful.
This one is one of my all time favourites the lollypop stick (sucker stick) cotton bud (Q tip) combo.
First off select your Lolly type, it obviously has to have a hollow plastic stick and be tasty. You can just cut the lolly off and sling it if you are worried about dentist bills though, this is after all meant to be cheap.
The second part is the cotton buds, here is a bit of counter intuitive thing for a misers guide... buy the expensive ones
they are made of thicker plastic and are stronger and easier to work with.
Here's the good bit, these 2 things seem to be made to go together. The cotton bud fits perfectly inside the lolly stick.
Main thing is with these is that super glue is a must, they just aint the right stuff to use plastics glue on.
That aside here is a selection of things you can do with them, although the only real limit is imagination.
Now if you are really bored you can play a quick game of spot the lollypop sticks and cotton buds...
