Great Ideas For Your Weekend!


It never ceases to amaze me how many clever, creative people there are in the world.

I love to be inspired and to think outside the box. It always helps to read blogs or go on Pinterest to see new and creative ideas.

The ideas that make me think, “Now why didn’t I think of that are the best ones!!”

Are You Ready For Some More

I love to recycle or re-purpose items and this is a good one. This clever person took their old detergent containers to hold the loose nuts and bolts in the garage.

I don’t know about you all, but my hubby has told me to never throw away a screw. He keeps them all, and I do men….. ALL!

I no longer have little ones around, but this is an idea that needs to be passed along. Cut a hole in the pacifier so it releases the medicine as the child sucks his/her pacifier. I think this is genius!!!

Another great idea for you Mom’s of little ones…….

Would you believe this activity tray for your carseat is only $9.95. Where was this when I had three little guys in the back seat?

This next idea is one of those that falls into the category of, “Why didn’t I think of this!”

Use tape to hold your bracelet in place as you click the latch. I can not tell you how many times I could have used this idea. Even if my hubby is home, his fingers are just to big to manipulate the latch. This is so simple, and practical!!

Another idea for those times you are alone, and need help to zip up your dress……..

Grab one of your long necklaces and put the hook in the little loop in the zipper and Voila!!!

Since we are talking about the back, check this out………

We have all seen these inexpensive rollers at the paint store. Well maybe they should start selling these at Bath and Body as a way to apply lotion to your back!!!!

"Technology Tickets". Each Sunday give the kids 10 tickets. Each ticket = 30 minutes (or whatever time limits your family decides on) of t.v., game system, computer, etc. Tickets can be used consecutively, but when they are out they are out for the week. **Love this idea!!!**

Speaking of the Kiddos this is a great way to have a snack on the road……..

Did you know that mice don’t like peppermint oil? Me either!!
Dab some on cotton balls and place wherever you have seen evidence of mice and it will deter them!! I am trying this for sure!!! Plus the extra added benefit of a nice fragrance!!!

This would be a great idea for a party favor, wedding favor or just a special treat during the Holidays. Use CD envelopes to hold homemade cookies. Love this idea.

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend doing what ever you please!!! Which one of these ideas do you think you will be trying???
