Creative uses for coffee  filters . who knew!   And you can buy 1,000 at a dollar store for almost  nothing.   
1.     Cover  bowls or dishes when cooking in the  microwave. Coffee filters make excellent covers.
2.     Clean windows and  mirrors.  Coffee filters are lint-free so they'll leave windows  sparkling.
3.     Protect China: Separate your good dishes by putting a  coffee  filter between each dish.
4.     Protect a cast-iron skillet.  Place a coffee filter in the  skillet to absorb moisture and prevent rust.
5.     Apply shoe polish.  Ball up a lint-free coffee filter.  
6.     Recycle frying oil.  After frying, strain oil through a sieve  lined with a coffee filter.
7.     Weigh chopped foods.  Place chopped ingredients in a coffee filter on a  kitchen scale.
8.     Coffee filters make convenient wrappers for messy  foods, such as tacos.
9.     Stop the soil from leaking out of a plant pot.  Line a plant  pot with a coffee filter to prevent the soil from going through  the drainage holes.
10. Prevent a Popsicle from dripping.  Poke one or two holes as  needed in a coffee filter.
11. Put a few in a plate and put your fried bacon, French fries, chicken  fingers, etc on them.   Soaks out all the grease.  
12. Keep some in the bathroom.  They make great "razor nick  fixers."
