Great Tips From a Good Friend - Thanks Faye

When my kids were young and small I kept the plates and glasses in the low cupboards and that way they could set the table without dragging a chair to the cupboard etc.

Also, my younger sister just shared a storage idea that might work for you I use it in my bathroom and she uses it in her bathroom and pantry. Buy a shoe storage that hangs on the back of a door and has about a dozen slots for shoes, it works great for all kinds of stuff. When I remember more of the things that I do or used to do when the kids were younger I'll let you know. Keep up the good work and have a great week.

Great Tip if You Don't Have Enough Storage for Kid's Clothes

I came up with this tip because I happen to have 4 grandchildren and their dad living with me for now.  I just don't  have enough dressers of storage for their clothing.  So, I have had one basket that I have filled with their clean laundry each day after I do the wash.  Then I had a light bulb moment...why not have a basket for each child?  Then each child can be responsible for taking their own basket downstairs and bringing it back up to Grandma who is the laundry person at the moment.  Laundry baskets are fairly inexpensive if you know where to get them.  I know they carry them at the local dollar store.

Tip of the Day

I just picked up this tip the other day and it really works.  If you happen to misplace or accidently chop up your stainless steel pad (like Brillo but stainless)in the disposal,  just grab a small piece of aluminum foil and wad it up.  It will scrub your pans very well until you are able to go to the store and get another one.

Kashi® GOLEAN Crisp!™ cereal.

I received a sample of Kashi GOLEAN Crisp cereal recently and was pleasantly surprised.  I had always thought "if it is good for you or will help you lose weight it would taste awful."  Well, I am here to tell you I was wrong.  I tasted this cereal and it was so good I had to go to the store to get more since it was just a small sample box.  The kids even liked it.  It really is yummy.  They also have many other varieties of cereal as well and I have tried most of them.  I liked every one I have tasted so far.

Waiting Impatiently for Spring

Today I received two different seed catalogs in the mail.  I glanced through them until I had more time but it did get me thinking about spring and how I was looking forward to planting more perennials in my garden.  Since I moved here two years ago I have had to literally create a garden.  The former owners of the home didn't know what a plant was.  Well, I had fun glancing through the catalogs and trying to picture some of them in my garden.  Then I had to leave for a couple of hours and help a family member and when I went to leave their home I went outside to a winter storm with sleet/ice stuck to my car window.  I could barely see to stop at Walmart for more coupon printing paper and then drive home.  So much for dreaming of spring.

Clairol's New Nice n' Easy Color Foam

I received the most wonderful package in the mail the other day. It was bright pink and when I opened it up there was the new Clairol Nice n' Easy Color Blend Foam. It was fantastic. They even sent a DVD with instructions but even if they hadn't it was so easy to use I couldn't believe it. And to top it all off while I was waiting the few minutes for my color to set in they gave me a small box of Lady Godiva Chocolates. Can you believe that one? Talk about pampered. And when I washed out the coloring it came out perfect and not brassy at all. I really do like it. OK, now ya'll need to try this stuff. It is so easy to use and you can do anything you want while it is setting up. Of course, I ate the chocolates they gave me but I did load my dishwasher too.
Thank you so much Family Circle and Clairol for choosing me to try out your new product. It is great :)
