Some good tips/photos added

I started doing the final part of my holiday till I go this sent to me, and thought it too good not to pass on, some very useful tips here
Theere's a chance the pics may not show, as I did a cut & paste, i'll put them in if they don't

The real trick is remembering them  - 

Some pretty good tips here...
Use a (clean) dustpan to fill a container that doesn't fit in the sink
Place a rubber band around an open paint can to wipe your brush on,
and keep paint off the side of the can


Use a staple remover to save your fingernails when trying to add things to your key ring!


Put wooden spoon across boiling pot of water to keep from boiling over.


Use bread clips to save flip-flops with split holes. 


How to put shoes in the dryer 



Use sunglasses or a small convex mirror to avoid people sneaking
up on you while wearing headphones at work .

How to keep the straw from rising out of your soda can


Use a microfiber cloth to prevent frost from forming on the windshield. 


Use a Comb to Keep a Nail Steady for Hammering 


Use a post it note to catch drilling debris. 

 Thank you for visiting and please come back, Arlene, Tango and Ruby


  1. All good suggestions but none of the pictures are showing for me.

  2. My pictures didn't show either though the tips are good.

  3. Good tips Arlene and good pictures thank you.

  4. Am seeing the photos today. Great tips. Will be using some of the soon.

  5. Glad they've shown up, a picture tells a story of a thousand words.

  6. Some really great tips. I did know the one holding a nail with a comb, but do you think I could remember it when I needed it. Same with these tips I may never remember them. I am reading a book on improving memory right now. Hubby and I do the exercises at breakfast in the morning. But one needs to do them more often as so far it works. I have so many household hint books, but forget to look in them when doing a project instead I struggle with trying to get something done. I did see all but 2 picture. Now in my memory course book picture are very import. Getting that visual really helps to imprint it in your memory. So hopefully most of these will imprint. Thanks for sharing these great hints and have a wonderful weekend.

  7. I got to see the pictures. These are some real good tips and I appreciate it.

  8. Once again thanks for visiting folks and if these tips help make life a bit easier, I'm happy for you, I know the feeling Carrie that you don't always remember the written wor, but photos are usually better at registering things in the mind. Good luck with your memory course.
