Whenever I put a casserole dish without a cover in the refrigerator, I put a cooling rack over it.

That way, I can stack another dish or other item on top of it.

This also comes in handy when you need to transport dishes that don't have covers.

Take a baker's rack and set your laptop on it. This lets air flow thru underneath it and thereby keeps your computer cool. This way you do not have to keep buying fans to sit under it to cool it. It works great either sitting it on your lap or on a desk.

Great idea. I bought a fan for $10 at garage sale and bless it every day; but a baker's rack, now there's an idea.

Why go out and pay a big price for a laptop cooler? Try this tip and have one for next to nothing.

I use a cake cooling rack as my laptop cooler. It works great! I bought this rack at a dollar store for $1, so I have saved a lot of money using it.

Good luck!

The other day I was baking brownies and I realized that I couldn't find my wire racks for cooling. With only a few minutes until the brownies were done, I scrambled around looking.
