Helpful Hints

When I get a night alone, I like to have a little pamper-fest. I bought a cheap face mask at Kroger and so I will use that to get rid of trapped nastiness on my face while I relax in the bath tub for a little while. I once wanted to get ambitious and make my own mask out of avocado and honey and whatever else I read to put in it, but it sort of turned out nasty and I felt bad for using my nice avocado that I could have just eaten instead of smearing on my face. However, with Re-Nest's ideas of how to reuse coffee grounds, I think tonight I might try to make the coffee ground/egg white face mask. I hope it turns out better than the avocado one. There are other helpful hints in the article about how to keep slugs and nasty buggy things away with coffee grounds. My mom uses them to turn her hydrangea bushes blue. The washing your pet in coffee grounds part is a bit much for me, that will not be happening in my apartment.

When I went into Publix the other day for some groceries, the smell of those cinnamon brooms were overwhelmingly amazing all throughout the supermarket. Sometimes I buy them and then never know where to put the actual broom. I don't like potpourri but I still want my apartment to smell spicy and fall-ish. So I'm going to be implementing some simmer pots to smell up the mustiness of apartment smells.




I wish I had known this trick before I put up my gallery wall, but this is just brilliant.




These 7th House on the Left tips are awesome, too, especially the toothpaste tips. Clean your hands with toothpaste to get rid of onion or garlic smells, use as a carpet stain remover, or use it to get the hairspray residue off of curling irons.

Shoe organizers are not just for shoes anymore!




I love this-I use it under my sink and I can just stack the garbage bag box and the "grocery bag box" perfectly. They come out like tissues and all you do is stuff them inside.

I'm going to start saving egg cartons now because I'm always afraid I'm going to have broken ornaments!




Now you never have to wonder what to do!
