Since we'll be travelling tomorrow, I decided to post my ideas today. Check Shannon's blog for lots more participants and great ideas!
I have a couple of small ideas, so decided to post them all together this week:
1. I keep two small wire baskets on the desk by the front door - one for sunglasses and one for keys. This has eliminated our problem of trying to remember where these items are!
2. Grace introduced me to the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser this past week - I found one on clearance for less than a dollar and had fun going around the house getting marks off of toys, walls, etc... This really does work!
3. My husband loves sweet tea and I felt like I was always making it, so have come up with a new solution of making two or three batches at a time and keeping it in the fridge just needing to be constituted when the pitcher is empty!
4. I used to melt candles in the oven to get them out of candle holders when they were too short to burn, but read in Martha Stewart about putting them in the freezer. This is so much easier and requires lots less clean up! Just put the entire candle holder in the freezer for about 30 minutes and when you take it out the candle will pop right out!
