When you think of celebrities, you usually think of nannies, housekeepers, chauffeurs, lots of money, glitz and glamour. However, there are some celebs who like to cut corners, be creative, be green and save money! Jessica Alba is just one of those people…
From MSN News:
Jessica Alba decorates her home with items she finds in trash.
The ‘Fantastic Four’ actress loves sifting through the rubbish left out by her neighbours to see if there is anything worth using.
A source told the National Enquirer magazine: ‘Jessica is into doing creative projects, and she gets a lot of material from the junk her wealthy neighbours throw out.
‘She doesn’t hide them, she’s proud of her work and reasons that it’s foolish to spend thousands of dollars at an expensive store when you can sometimes score just as nice things in the trash.’
Jessica – who has 11-month-old daughter Honor with husband Cash Warren – has already refurbished chairs, a table and picture frames she found on the street.
The source added: ‘She uses a lot of things she has redone in her own home, but she also gifts them to her friends.’
Hopefully her creative streak will rub off on Honor, teach her she can be resourceful and turn trash into treasure!
