LOVE THIS...! I have a hard time lifting these huge milk jugs and this makes it easy-peasy.. OR I can teach my son to get his own milk! A gallon of milk weighs about 8 lbs. Not good for those with bad shoulders, hands, etc. Getting 2 so I have one for water too on my counter.
For those who find it difficult to lift + pour large containers.

Lap Counter by Tomas Kral. Apparently just a concept, this lap bowl and counter lets you work on chopping and prepping food even while seated. This could be a real practical help for those with disabilities or those who cannot stand at the counter for long periods of time. Totally in love with the concept.

Frame a piece of notebook paper, hot glue a bow, wrap with a dry erase marker ... viola! A great way to give someone a note of encouragement for their nightstand and let them change the quote or scripture whenever they want.
Another pinner says: "I am a nurse and one of my patients in the hospital had this basket of candy and treats in their room with a poem attached to it they received as a gift from friends. They called it "Nurse Bait"! The poem was too cute not to share and the nursing staff greatly appreciated it also. This is a good idea for a gift for anyone who is stuck in the hospital. You can read and copy the poem to attach to your basket of sweets to share with the patient and staff caring for them!"
This would be a cute gift for a coworker or friend! This site has labels you can print to look like RX labels. You can put m's or skittles in empty pill bottles then put the labels on them.
