      Edible Glue! Depending on what you're gluing, egg whites make an awesome glue, and a good shellac in a pinch. but most often I use egg whites while baking, pies, cookies, candies, gingerbread houses, Easter decorations, etc. I've even used egg whites to glue a re-purposed envelope. I'm so stinking frugal, lol.

      Decoupage and Paper Mache are on my list of to-do's. These will definitely come in handy.

      Sounds like a cheap way to have a constant supply of glue at school. Also a great way to reuse glue bottles to avoid buying more plastic.
