Do some spring cleaning with a useful origami dustpan or scoop. Made from 1 sheet of square paper. Make the easy or the intermediate version.
Use them as throw away dustpans to clean up after parties. If you make two, they can be used to scoop rubbish into a bin.
If you use large paper for these, I think they could be very useful. For example you could clean up something really gross and throw the dustpan away after finishing.
There are two versions of this, the first one is a simple dustpan and is very quick and easy. The second one (the smaller scoop) is a continuation of the first one and is more of a scoop.
The origami trash bin at the start is made with brown wrapping paper, tutorial here (the wrapping paper was at least 50 x 50 cm or more).
This model is featured in my origami book:
