Other Practical Solutions!

December 22, 2011

I recently made a list of practical solutions for the holidays.  These are for any time of the year!


Keep your Apples from Browning after cutting by wrapping a rubber band around to keep in place.


Pump up the volume by placing your MP3 player in a bowl.  The concave shape amplifies the music!


Make an instant cupcake carrier by cutting crosses into a box lid.


Attach a Velcro strip to the wall to store soft toys.


Forever losing your bathroom essentials? Use magnetic strips to store bobby pins, tweezers and clippers, behind a vanity door


Bread tags make the perfect cord labels.


Install a tension rod to hang your spray bottles.

Amazing Stuff, Right? Do you do any of these things already?? If so- you’re ahead of me!!


  1. Ooo, I like the tension rod under the sink and cupcake box ideas! Thanks!

  2. lots of great ideas… I always wanted a way to identify all the cords under the television.

  3. Sabrina Radke says:

    WOW, these are awesome! So stealing these!

  4. I love the idea for putting the mp3 player in a bowl. We don’t even have a stereo in our house so this will be used a lot!!

  6. Robin Wilson says:

    I just love tips like this! I am always amazed at how simple and effective they are. It’s kinda a “duh” moment, but I am going to put just about all of these into use! Would love to see more of these types of posts!! Just love it!

  7. Wow lots of idea here that I really like. I like the rod under the sink to hold your cleaners – much easier to find the one you want. The stuffed animals with velcro is another space saver to as also a great idea. thanks so much

  8. I really like the apple, bread tags and the tension rod under the sink…who would have thought?? Oh and the stuffed animals…I still have mine (which there is a lot), but I’m not sure that my husband would like them just chilling on the walls in our bedroom lol It’s the simplest things that we overlook…..
