Clamp the nail in the clothespin and position it where you want the picture to hang. Steady the pin with your fingers while you tap the nail into the wall.

Shopping Carts

I find that if I use a small shopping cart at the grocery store and not one of those gigantic ones, I don't buy as much because my cart is full.

Storing Small Gadgets

If you have a bunch of kitchen tools clogging up your drawers, store them in flower vases on your counter for easy access.

Pan scrubbers

I use credit cards (the ones that come as "an example" in credit card offerings) to scrape pots and pans clean.

Gardening

I use a small jar and poke holes in the lid. I put my garden seeds in the jar and then just shake them into my row for planting. They get distributed more evenly.

Keeping Weeds Down

I put newspapers between my rows in my garden and cover then lightly with dirt- It keeps the weeds down and I don't have to use chemicals to control weeds. This fall, I just till my garden and the newspapers are compost for the garden.
