If you have a suede garment or sued shoes that have water spots on them, you can remove them by using a fine grit sandpaper and gently buffing the area.
While eating salad straight from the bag should be fine, since they put a hydrogen peroxide or chlorine spray into the bag to prevent germ growth, you may still want to wash the lettuce before you serve it.
Save the juice from your pepperoncini pepper jar and add it to your tomato juice for an added "kick"!

Have some unexpected company show up? Or are you trying to sell you home and someone comes with 5 minutes notice? Toss your clutter into your clothes dryer. Gauranteed, people don't look there! (It's also a good place to hide goodies from the kids for a short period of time!)
Preheat your clothes dryer, then put your yeast bread in it to rise. It is amazingly fast and easy!

Oh my goodness, this is so cute, you'll want to order several and keep them on hand for gifts. It's called a "Pacimal"; a pacifier attached to a cuddly soft stuffed animal. Here is a gift all Moms would love. Locate your child by the same technology that you find your car. "Mommy I'm Here Locator" is a great device and only $29.99, cheap for peace of mind. I was introduced by this reading system by a friend of mine who is a teacher. It is called the TAG System. It's a book and a pen; fit for preschoolers hands. You point the pen at a word and it repeats it verbally. Great tool to teach reading. Readers have asked me where to get Sophie the Giraffe Teether for their babies. Here's a great baby shower gift idea. I love the closet organizers for baby clothes. You know you always get assorted sizes (and with good reason). These are from etsy.com. If you haven't heard of etsy, go there now, they have all handmade cottage industry items, very unique and fun! School Days, School Days.... Tell your child's teacher about Gold Star Registry for a gift registry for the classroom. I hear the newest, greatest toy on the market for the toddler/pre-school set is the Leap Frog Scribble Pad. It sounds terrific to me to help the kiddies learn how to write and identify their ABC's and shapes. A fabulous gift for new parents is the book 12 Gifts. It is a book about when you become a new parent how a baby enriches your life immediately, by giving you the gift of a new love, a new form of compassion, etc. It's a must have. Here's an item I love for toddlers. They are squeaky toddler shoes. They supposedly encourage correct foot movement while the child is learning to walk. I would love them for the squeaky sound they make as the child walks. Granted, they could send some parents over the edge with the constant "squeak" of the shoe, but if you are out shopping, at a playground or anywhere a child is not easy to watch, these squeaker shoes make life easier. (An added bonus is you know if they are getting into trouble!) There are several brands of Squeaky shoes Pipsqueaks and these, SqueakerSneakers.
