New Uses For Old Things

Don't you just love it when you find new uses for old things? I do.  I am one of those household hints junkies that want to try "101 uses for vinegar, or lemon juice or whatever..."  I ran across an article in Good Housekeeping and I am going to share it with you.

You know those freebie shower caps they have in hotel rooms? Here is a helpful tip for when you travel...

That's right, put them over your shoes to protect your other clothes in your luggage.

Ever try this? It works like a champ and then you can toss them.

Put the shower cap over your leftovers to heat in the microwave.

Next on our helpful hints category today....
If your vanity drawer is a spaghetti mess of cords from hair dryers, curling irons and the like, try this. I bought these pony tail holders at the Dollar Store. My goodness, 15 for a buck, not a bad deal!

Now look at my runaway cords.  I feel so smart!  I'll have to go look at other places I can use these little lovelies. Lord knows I have runaway cords all over this house!
