My friend teaches 4th grade and she says the line of students at her desk in the morning that want to tell her something is practically out the door. To avoid this she created a sharing jar.
Paper Clip Photo Frame Bookmarks
Here's a fun way to use a paper clip. I was thinking of making a bookmark out of it and I came up with the idea of creating a mini photo frame bookmark.
Harvesting Potatoes from a Potato Tower
We made a potato tower two years ago. We planted it with seed potatoes, added soil as the plants grew, and then proceeded to forget about harvesting them.
Aimee Love (Shih Tzu Mix )
The neighbor's dog was pregnant with 5 puppies; unfortunately the mother and 3 of the pups didn't make it. The neighbors both worked full time and I run a day care from home so I naturally took in the puppies and bottle fed them. Kobe found a new home last week and Aimee stayed with me.
Collard Leaves Turning Beige and Withering
I planted some Georgia collards and the leaves on some of the plants are turning beige and withering up. Do I cut off the leaf or leave it on the plant?
New Whirlpool Washer Beeping and Won't Start
We bought a front load washer, Whirlpool ghw9150pw1. When we plugged it in all we get is a steady loud beep. Nothing on the panel works?
Lil' Shaker Angel
In about 30 or 45 minutes, you can make this Lil' Shaker Angel. See how easy they are to create and how many different things you can make them with. They are great for stocking stuffers or the Christmas Bazaars that will pop up before you know it!
Setting Up Free Telephone Service at Home
There are many free phone services out there. Even the government has one, Safelink, although you must meet a few requirements. Another, little known and quite different service is provided by Google. It is different in that it allows you to use your land line (home phone) for free.
Paper Plates as Microwave Helper
I store a stack of paper plates on top of my microwave. When I put something like soup in the microwave, I slip a plate under the dish.
Using Maxwell House Coffee Containers
I buy these all the time. Well, with the coffee in them, of course! I wash them out and fill them individually with sugar, flour, etc. I then label them on the handles and put them in my cabinets.

This summer, I decided to do an experiment. I decided to see what would happen if I didn't use my car one day a week. I have discovered that this is a really good idea for many reasons.
Honey-Do Memo Board
I always have lot of things that I could use my husband's help with, but I really needed a centralized location to list them all out. I came up with this idea of a honey-do memo board after I saw the honeycomb scrapbooking paper at the store!
Remedy for Cat Urine Stains and Odor on Hardwood Floors
We recently bought a house where over 30 cats ran wild around the house for over 15 years, we think. There is the worst cat smell you could ever imagine. We had to rip up some of the hardwood floors in some rooms as well as the baseboards. We were hoping to spare some of the floors.
Cucumber Turned Yellow After Picking
I picked a nice green cucumber. Over a couple of weeks in the house, it slowly turned yellow. It is firm and looks really good. I read some of the other questions and answers about cukes turning yellow on the vine, and being bitter. Why did the one I have turn yellow off the vine, instead of spoiling?
Dye Transferred in the Wash
I have this white cotton beach towel with a blue print on it. I accidentally washed my son's red shirt with it and now the white has turned pink. Can you suggest anything else I can do to remove the colour with out ruining the blue print on it, so I don't have to buy a new one to replace it?
Removing Tree Sap from Child's Swing Set
We have a lovely swing set in the backyard for our grandchildren. The swings and the chains that you hold to swing are covered with either tree sap or drippings from the trees above. It's black and sticky. How would you suggest we clean this?
Gebhardt Chili Sauce Copy Cat Recipe
Does anyone have a copy cat recipe for the late, great Gebhardt hot dog chili sauce? (No hot dogs in it, it's the sauce for them). I noticed that their chili powder is available again, but no chili sauce!
I am visiting family in Iowa and would love to cut some of the huge amounts of bittersweet at my mom's farm. If I cut it with the berries still green will they eventually turn to the beautiful orange-red as they dry?
What Breed Mix Is My Puppy?
My puppy's mom was a Shih Tzu and the father is unknown. Any guess on what she is mixed with?
Removing Coconut Oil from Carpet
I mixed baking soda powder with ground-up salt and rubbed it into my carpet with a broom. How can I remove it? Since then I sprayed on coconut oil, which is a solid unless it's a hot day.
Uses for Chlorine Tablets
I have a bucket of 1 inch chlorine pucks. Ideas for use (other than pool) would be greatly appreciated!
Use Lids to Cover Burners
Sometimes I cover the burners with those Dollar Tree burner covers and then, I sometimes burn them. It happens when the pot is larger than the cover and I forget to check. I found 2 10-inch and 2 8-inch lids that not only cover them to keep them clean, but have handles so I can't set anything on them.
