Periodically, I come across a tip that changes my life for the good. Some make life easier, while others save me money.
Here are a few that I have encorporated into my own household routines.
1.Save the bags inside cereal boxes. They are stronger than zip-loc bags and work great for crushing crackers or for holding coatings for meat (think shake and bake).
2.Shake your towels out as you move them from the washer to the dryer. It will help them dry faster. Really.
3.Signs taped all over the house in strategic places help you nag your kids less.
4.Hulu.com is a great way to watch television online for free.
5.Swagbucks.com is the search engine that pays. Although it doesn't seem to have the great parental controls that Google does and I don't get as many results, having the swagbuck toolbar at the top of my screen enables me to earn at least 2 “bucks” a day.
6.Put rubber bands around a cold or slippery glass to prevent kids from dropping it.
7.Bar soap is a great tool to mark pieces that you are sewing. It disappears when the garment is washed.
It's also great for lubricating stuck things like drawers, hinges, and pepper grinders.
What's the best tip you have ever found?
