If you are not composting your coffee filters (or even if you are) I have another use for you! Even using a new one is quite cost effective.

When planting something in a pot (or in your repurposed berry containers) the dirt often leaks out the bottom. Then I am searching for the right size rock etc to cover the whole, but still allow drainage. AHA!!!

Use a coffee filter. The whole gets plugged, drainage is still possible and over time it is biodegradable.

DO you have any other uses for those used coffee filters? Other ideas for keeping the dirt in?
