Cucumber Slices At picnics or BBQs, slice cucumber slices and lay them around. It keeps bees away. Learned this at the maple syrup booth at our state fair, no bees around. It was really amazing.

Getting out stain on microfiber couch

Stuffed Animal Storage Idea. Simple bean bag cover (Bed Bath Beyond) and fill with stuffed animals. Why didn't I think of this along time ago

I'm keeping all my old pickle jars now! *50 ways to re-use/repurpose glass jars by kendra

Line flower pots with coffee filters to prevent dirt falling through the hole in the bottom of the pot

Rosemary Coals Instead of making a marinade with rosemary for grilling, place the herb right on the coals. The smoke enhances food in the same way burning wood chips does. Once the coals are uniformly gray and ashy, loosely cover them with fresh rosemary branches (be careful not to burn your hands). Almost any meat or vegetable will benefit from this savory smoking.

Cake stand for your sink soaps and scrubs. So much cuter than just putting this stuff behind the faucet.

Light charcoal in terracotta pots lined with foil for tabletop s'mores. Fun outdoor summer party idea.

Well, of course! Just decorate and I have a place for my filters!

Party Favors: Coffee filters, along with pipe cleaners, paint, hot glue and scissors, can be made into a variety of party favors, including a Thanksgiving turkey, ghosts (use cotton puffs to stuff their little heads), angels, butterflies, candy holders

turn a bar of soap into 2 liters of liquid hand soap Super easy and cheap!

My carpets are so gross with 3 kids carpet cleaner - Awesome! Should've done before/after pics, but I had 3 almost black stains on my off-white carpet and they came up beautifully! Had to do it twice, but they had been there a LONG time and were really ground in. 2cups hydrogen peroxide and 1/4 cup baking soda. Put in a spray bottle squirt- scrub- vacuum!

Another pinner wrote: Re-do honey oak (wooden or laminate) cabinets or furniture with "General Finishes Java Gel Stain" (absolutely NO substitutions for this brand!) No brushing! Wipe gel stain on with men's white sock.

Need to remember this for KIDS...Remove a splinter easily by applying a paste of baking soda and water, then waiting several minutes for the splinter to pop out of the skin. Gotta remember this!

"Every Easter, my mom hosts an egg hunt at her house for my two daughters, ages 9 and 5. She puts puzzle pieces in plastic eggs, and the girls, after collecting them, try putting the puzzle together to see if they have found them all. If a piece is missing, they know an egg is still out there and they need to keep hunting!" --Donita Calef
