Picture of Indoor Garden with Thrifty Supplies
I started this thrifty project with an attempt to see how growing herbs indoors would work. Creating an indoor herb planter seemed like an easy enough task, and to my delight, I was right.
As a usually thrifty person, I didn’t want to make it a big project and I didn’t want to spend too much money on it, so I gathered most things I had in my apartment at my disposal. I’m a bottled water drinker, however bad for the environment it may be, it helps me drink more water and stay healthy, but, at least I recycle the bottles. I had my usual recycle bin full of empty water bottles and I figured I could easily cut these and use them as small pots for growing flowers and herbs. I also had an old Coca-Cola crate that I had bought a few months ago and hadn’t used, and it was the perfect thing for placing the recycled plastic pots in. After a bit of soil, some water, and sunlight, I had life right in my windowsill! You’re not limited to a wooden Coca-Cola crate, but you can use a multitude of other things as thrifty indoor herb planters.

Thank you!
Great idea using water bottles and I love the vintage look with the coca-cola crate. I definitely want to try making something like this.

Thanks for the positive feedback! I really like incorporating vintage items with newer items or different functionality. I plan on doing an instructable with how to incorporate items into your home with different functionality and style.
