With summer just around the corner, watermelon season accompanies it! Use string or fishing line to cut the melon.
To save gift wrap paper to use again: When you make your fold and get ready to tape, put fishing line in at the taped area. Leave a small end on each side. When the gift is opened, just pull the line and you have a nice and clean opening. This will save lots of paper to be used again.
The fishing line will not be seen because it doesn't have any color. The paper could be used again for gifts, making gift tags, greeting cards, or gift baskets. You could also frame the prettiest paper, and make wall art or use to cover boxes for gifts or storage.

As a very stingy gramma, I have got "tight waddery" down to a science. While living in an apartment where the repair people didn't come running when I called, I figured out a way to fix my toilet. I just did it this morning in my 30+ year old condo. We will eventually replace the toilets but this will work until we do.
I removed the chain from the flushing apparatus and replaced it with a double length of fishing line. If you make it exactly the length to fit from the handle to the little rubber stopper thingy, it won't get caught and leave the toilet running all day. Fishing line won't cause those rust stains which torment us at cleaning time. Be sure to leave the link of chain that attaches to the rubber stopper. Just loop the line through that and then through the hole in the lever which attaches to the flush handle. Then wind it several times and tie it securely.
My youngest daughter sucked a sock in the vacuum hose and then tried to use a wire hanger to take it out and hopelessly jammed it in, it seemed. I came up with the idea of a treble fishing hook and fishing line.

Cut strings of the fishing line in different lengths, loop each end, attach a Christmas ornament on one end, and thumbtack the other to the ceiling. The ornaments appear to be floating in the air, and makes a beautiful Christmas display.
We recently purchased a kit for my daughter's friend to make her own necklaces and bracelets like the ones found in stores, the ones that stretch, have beads and fit right next to the skin.

When I lost a screw in my glasses, I threaded a fishing line through twice and knotted it tight. Worked great and didn't show. The office that put another screw in thought it was a neat trick.
