An Organized Glove Box??

Some people call it a jockey box..some people call it other things, but you know where I'm talking about....its that compartment in the car that when open, spills all over the floor!!  The photo of the coupon organizer says it all.  The, uh-hem, several times I have been pulled over by our local Georgia speed trappers, I have had to nervously fumble around the box for the license and registration. This will make ( would have made - it won't be happening again! ) retrieving all info faster. Add a section for receipts for car repairs, car maintenance etc. Voila! an organized glove compartment.

"Cool" idea for freezing ground beef!

It's not often that I see a great new ideas for freezing food, but this is definitely one for the books, uh, blog.

Take a pound or two of raw hamburger meat, put it in a freezer bag and flatten and measure off portions with a chopstick!! When you want to use some (like make just one fresh hamburger just open the bag and break off however much you want to use. This is a really practical idea. I still love my gravel also though.

Grab and go Travel Laundry kit

for the car, in a suitcase, or just in your house....neat and together, just grab and go. While you're at it you may want to put in a stain chart also, for quick reference.

Bag box

I've kept grocery bags in tissue boxes for years. I use a "Kleenex Boutique" box however as they take up less space. They are stowed under every bathroom sink to hold bags for the trach can.

Travel shoe separator

I will never throw away another free shower cap!

This is just too brilliant! And I thought shower caps were just for covering up the end of cut watermelon  or covering rolls that are raising in round pans. Sheesh!

Get a grip!

Kids spill drinks....elastic bands help !

Tangle Tamer

I've done this for years. If you want to go the second mile you could write the length of the cord on the tube...OR...mark the one that is the perfect length for something like those Christmas lights that go on the mantle. I hate gobs of too long cord sticking out under the curtains that hang over the plug.!
