Fresher Vegetables

I put a paper towel or a napkin in my zip-type bags of vegetables. They absorb the condensation from the vegetables and keep the environment dry, which preserves the vegetables’ refrigerator life. I change the paper when I notice it getting too damp.

Honest Tea

Honest Tea is a line of bottled teas, very similar to Snapple, but all organic w/ no chemicals, additives, preservatives or artificial junk. They also use a fraction of the sugar compared to Snapple. Very healthy and natural.

Save Sofa Fabric

Before you send that sofa to the trash heap, remove the fabric from the back. In most cases, that fabric is like new. You can use it to make throw pillows or valances, donate it, or, if it’s leather, make a purse.

Broccoli Sticks

Instead of throwing out broccoli stems, grate them and add them to salads or slaw. Or peel and cut them into sticks, as you would carrots, to eat as a snack. Broccoli sticks are yummy and good for you, too.

Use toothpaste to remove pen or magic marker from nearly any hard surface - stained wood, plastic, baby doll faces, walls, flooring. It's very effective. Just don’t use whitening varieties on colored surfaces.
