  • Whenever I recieve mailorder items in a bag, I turn the bag inside out to return it. It is the correct size and it has my address on the inside. No more wrapping and trying to find packaging to return.

  • I set a kitchen timer for my 9 year old. She has 10-15 minutes for each part of her morning routine (getting dressed, eating breakfast, etc). It helps her know if she's moving too slow and it's fun for her to try and beat the clock.

  • Buy a package of clothespins at the grocery store and use them instead of twist ties on things such as bread, plastic bags etc. So much easier! I delight in ripping off the twist ties that come on things and replacing it with a clothespin. I even use them on things in the freezer.

  • Make sure you have one visit per month that involves connecting with an artist in any of the fields: music, theatre, painting, photography, fashion, hair styling.
    It helps you escape your own world, recharges and lifts your spirit, therefore in return, you become a more inspired person in your own family and business daily routine.

  • I was in a car accident a while ago, and I used my cell phone to snap pictures of the scene, including close-ups of the damage, both cars' license plates, and the position of the vehicles in the road. It was a lifesaver when it came to filing the claim with my insurance company, as the other driver got his friends to move his vehicle out of the area and remove some of the damaged parts of his car within aabout 30 minutes, leaving only the pictures on my camera as proof that he was at fault!

  • Snuggli has been a lifesaver for me. It helped calm my extrememly colicky baby & I've lost about 10 lbs. Ofcourse my daughter is too big to wear all day but I still pack it in the stroller of wear her for short walks around the block or to the store.
