Here are some easy solutions to a few of life’s little irritations:
- When removing your window screens to clean or paint, number each one and the window to which it belongs to make them easier to put back. This also works well if you are painting a chest of drawers with several drawers of the same size.
- If you are tired of having sugar spill all over your table or seeing a spoonful or two of sugar floating at the bottom of your kids’ cereal bowls each morning, try putting your sugar in a large salt shaker. It won’t spill and your family won’t use nearly as much sugar because they will stop shaking after a few shakes.
- If you are hanging clothes on the clothesline on a hanger to air them or dry them, use two hangers instead of one and turn them in the opposite direction. This will help prevent them from blowing off of the line.
- When placing a fitted sheet on the bed, it is easier to put the sheet on if you fit the diagonally opposite corners on first.
