Welcome to household tips series 3! Way back in January I decided to to a 30 day series on household tips and post only on Country Design Style’s Facebook page. This added about 20% new facebook followers to my small group of followers. Woot, woot!
Now onto the next series. I have 3 sizes of tin cans I keep in the kitchen to hold plastic food bags while pouring or even dropping in strawberries.
Those food freezer storage bags lay flat until frozen then I move the bag to a larger shelf and store like books. I even started writing along the edge of the bag to easily read the contents.
Do this! It’s a life changer!
This is another life changer but it’s also a learning process. Learn to use a squeegee. I’ve been using a squeegee for 15 years and although you will not see me hanging from a skyscraper any day soon, not only because of the height but my window cleaning squeegee abilities, I do okay for around our house!
We have a German Shepherd and a glass front door. Enough said!
I can clean our front door, two sliding doors, and two large floor mirrors in 10 minutes. When I’m in the mind to! 🙂
I may lose some of you on this one. Ironed pillowcases! Yes, once a week I iron 5 pillowcase for Mike and I. Mike likes three pillows. Again it takes only about 10 minutes. If I have a choice, clean windows and mirrors or ironed pillowcases, I go with ironed pillowcases every time. I add lavender to the stray water bottle.
My pillows are done for this week so I guess I go clean the windows and mirrors.
Let me know if you try any of these tips and how they work for you in comments below. Love to hear from readers!
