One might accuse me (and by “one,” I mean Paul) of wasting time on Pinterest. But I say quite the contrary – I can’t believe all the helpful tips I’ve found!
And since I know not everyone is wasting…er…spending time on there with me, I don’t feel like you should lose out on everything I’m learning.
Most things I’ve discovered make me smack my forehead with a big ‘ol “Why didn’t I think of that!?” Here are some of my favorites so far (from top to bottom, left to right):
No more wasting leftover tomato paste – oh my gosh, how many recipes only call for one tablespoon of tomato paste, leaving the rest of the container useless and wasted?! No more!
Ice Lick Dog Toy – freeze water and chicken stock with toys, carrots, treats, etc to keep dogs from getting bored in the backyard. Make your own!
Ice cream time saver for birthday parties – scoop the ice cream into lined cupcake pans & put them in the freezer. Then just pull them out when you cut the cake & serve!
Frozen Yogurt Bites – simple, healthy, portable snack. Great for toddlers. Awesome idea.
Sort through unworn clothing – great way to weed out the clothing you don’t wear and clear out the clutter!
Wall-Mount Kitchen Roll Organizer – I just want this. Love.
Restaurant Tic-Tac-Toe – a way to keep the kids busy while waiting for the food to come. Genius.
Keep apple slices from browning – for work or school lunches.
Wrapping Paper Holders – oh, this. THIS. IS. BRILLIANT.
…and then there’s just this. Because, well, why not? GAWD. He’s freaking adorable.
