Practical Things

If I read, see, think or am told something interesting or useful, I write it in a notebook.  If I didn't write it down I would probably never think of it again.  The items below are some of the things I have written lately.  They are tidbits but worth revisiting.  For you guys out there in internetland they may prove to be useful.  Take a look.

My daily routine of life would be a shambles if it wasn't for "Post It" notes or their equivalent and binder clips. 

Making a cup of coffee at home costs about 13 cents.  Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks coffee costs at least 2 bucks.

Buying and drinking bottled water at the rate that most Americans do totals out at about $10 a gallon.

Staples will recycle ink cartridges, give discounts on new cartridges and make it all less expensive.

Repurposing Hillshire Farms deli meat containers as sandwich carriers is cost effective, eco-friendly and practical.

Wrapping the ends of bananas in plastic wrap to keep their freshness is one of my best discoveries. 

Using a tennis ball wrapped in sandpaper is wonderful for sanding curved surfaces.

It would be great if you guys would send in some practical things for all of us to think about and use.  Use the comments section or email me at
We would all love to hear from you.
Today .... keep it simple and make it real.
