Now here’s a tip

• “I really abhor bar soap, but my husband prefers it. After cleaning the soap dish, I smear it with petroleum jelly. I do the underside too. There’s a little lip that will keep the soap from sliding off, but the petroleum jelly keeps the inevitable sludge from sticking to the soap dish, making my cleaning routine much easier!” – A.D. in Idaho

• “I make my own little good-behavior coupons for my three children. I print them on different colors of paper for each child. They can cash in coupons for activities or rewards, and if they go in together to get something, I will give them bonus coupons for working together. I think this has made goal-setting a priority for them, and it has helped them learn the lesson of shared goals – an important one for a large family.” – R.V.F. in Arizona

• “When I go to the grocery store, I put my wallet in my pocket, then as I move through the store and determine which coupons I will be able to use, I put them in my wallet pocket. Since I have started doing this, I have not accidentally forgotten to use my coupons. They are there in my pocket when I am ready to pay.” – O.B. in Indiana
