Organize Holiday Clothes

January 31, 2012 Leave a comment

I apologize up front if this is redundant.  I posted this earlier but it’s not showing up.  Put your holiday clothes on a hanger whose color corresponds with the holiday.  For example, I put my Christmas sweaters on red, fall/Halloween on orange, Valentine’s Day on pink.  That way it is easy to spot the clothes at the appropriate season and it will let you know if you have too many of a particular holiday (I have over 40 Christmas sweaters, just saying).

Another Hint

There are lots of uses for used and unused dryer sheets, including removing nail polish. My favorite is tucking them in shoes when you first take them off. They will soak up moisture and help eliminate odor.

A Gift Wrapping Hint

If you end up with small pieces of ribbon, put them together and shred and/or curl all together to make a really unique package decoration.  I have mixed all kinds, but then I never throw anything away.

Leftover Nachos

If you have leftover nachos (and who doesn’t; you always get so much), save them for a great, easy breakfast.  Make one or more poached egg(s); heat up the nachos and put the egg(s) on top.  Top off with a little taco sauce and you have huevos rancheros…yum!

Indoor Plant Tip

Save your water from steaming vegetables and/or cooking pasta.  There are lots of nutrients in that water that plants love.  Also, cut back on watering in the winter; they don’t need as much.
