Now here’s a tip

• “To keep the fabric belts in place on my daughters’ shorts and pants, I stitched the center of the belt to the back loop of the garment. The bow never pulls to one side, or falls off! It’s great for keeping them with the right pair of pants or shorts.” – O.S. in Wisconsin

• “I bought one of those French memo boards (the ones with the crisscrossed ribbons to tuck things under) for my foyer. I put up reminder cards for upcoming appointments. I check the board before leaving for the day to note if there is anything upcoming. Sometimes, I have to make an appointment way ahead of time, like dentist’s appointments or follow-ups. It’s handy to have them all in one place.” – P.V. in Washington

• “I belong to a supper club, and when it is our night to host, I type up the recipes of the dishes I make and slip them into a photo frame. Guests can see if there are any ingredients they won’t tolerate, and I can easily make a copy if a guest wants it.” – F.L. in Virginia

• Substitutions in a pinch: When a recipe calls for a square of unsweetened chocolate, use 3 tablespoons of cocoa and 1 tablespoon of nonflavored oil, such as vegetable or canola.
