WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT???

I am not the most craft oriented person – in fact, I used to dread arts and crafts days at school and am not the grandma who has a multiple of crafts around for children to play with. I would much rather cook, make up stories, create music and sound and song. Fortunately creativity comes in different ways – and someone – it came to me as ‘anonymous’ who is clearly good at arts and crafts, came up with some Ideas to Make Life Easier that are so simple and yet so brilliant. It is like that isn’t it though? The most brilliant ideas are the simple ones – the ones to which you have to exclaim – why didn’t I think of that?!  I  guarantee you’ll be uttering those words more than once at these ingenious little tips, tricks and ideas that solve everyday problems. I will pass them on every Tuesday for the next few weeks. And if you have your own tip that makes life easier, please do put it into the comment section at the bottom of my blog, so that I can publish it and share it with everyone! As I mentioned – this is not my best thing – so I am relying on the collective intelligence of those who are ever so much better at this kind of thing than I am!

Turn your muffin pan upside down, bake cookie-dough over the top and voila, you have cookie bowls for fruit or ice-cream.
 

 

 

A muffin pan becomes a craft caddy.  Magnets hold the plastic cups down to make them tip-resistant.

 

 

 

 

Overhaul your linen cupboard, and store bed linen sets inside one of their own pillowcases and there will be no more hunting through piles for a match. This one is especially brilliant – I am still using sheets I got in my trousseau after 42 years of marriage – can you believe it? And this will help me keep them organized – yay!!

Don’t forget to send me your tips for inclusion into future Tuesday tips!
