Now Here’s a Tip




 

 

• Take a picture of the size of your air filter and keep it on your phone. No guessing when you get to the store and all those numbers start sounding the same.

• Recipe Substitutions: If you need 1 cup of corn syrup, dissolve 1 cup white sugar in 1/4 cup of hot water.

• “My husband plays golf a lot, and he’s always got a stock of little pencils from the club. The kids made a photo frame for him for Father’s Day by gluing many of these pencils together in a pattern rectangle. It’s so creative and we printed a photo of him and the kids to go in it.” — J.G. in Florida

• Protect your razor and your fingers in your shower kit with this neat trick. Clip an extra-large binder over the razor head. Fold the prongs along the razor handle and secure with an elastic hair tie.

• Kids running around the house? To make sure they don’t run into the sliding glass door, hang something at eye level. It could be as simple as a sticker, or a cute suncatcher. Nobody likes to go face first into a glass door that’s closed.

• “I have a lovely painted mailbox. The house number is painted on, but it never occurred to me that it’s not very visible in the dark. We had a heart scare recently that involved an ambulance being called. They did make it to our place, but standing in the driveway as they left, I realized that we needed something more obvious. I have a solar-powered lamp light up house numbers now.” — A.O. in Idaho
