Tuesday Tips – Second set of Amazing ideas sent to me anonymously – but OH SO HELPFUL when Cooking with Kids and More! YOU will say “Why didn’t I think of that?”

This is the second in the series of 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!

Use egg cartons to separate and store your Christmas decorations.

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

Create a window-box veggie patch using guttering. And they can be organic veggies too – no pesticides or sprays! Yum – just step outside and pick your lunch – like we do on our Little Farm.

And this one is especially great – if under your sink is a messy as under mine –

Install a tension rod to hang your spray bottles.

Don’t forget to add your wonderful tips in the comment section below – so that I can share them with others who, like me, are craft-challenged!
