Magazine Blow-Ins

Use those perfumed magazine blow-ins anywhere that needs to be freshened. I use mine in the closet where the garbage can is, one in the laundry room. Finally, a use for those things!!! Just place in the room, discard when they no longer freshen the room. You have spent nothing.

Train Kids Young

As soon as they are out of the crib, start training your child (or grandchild) to make the bed. Praise their efforts, don't go behind them and "fix" it. Children should do what they are able to do, and they can help around the house.

Burned Cookies???

Don't throw them away. Take your grater and gently rub the cookie over the fine grate. The burn will be grated away and the rest of the cookie will taste fine.

Grease Fire

If you experience a grease fire in your kitchen, DO NOT attempt to extinguish it with water. Put the lid on the pan or toss on baking soda. The best thing is to have a fire extinguisher in EVERY kitchen.
