Picture hanging tip - Great idea
Picture Frame Hanging Tip This little tip may just change your life! Okay, maybe I'm being a little overdramatic. Maybe... But you WILL love this picture frame hanging tip! Get It Sold with Sabrina Soto. She preparing to hang frames on the wall when she whipped out this homemade tool to mark the perfect placement of the frame on the wall! So I decided to make my version of this tool. Sabrina had a long piece of wood that looked like an extra thick paint stirrer, and to one end she had a screw screwed into it. I decided to make a scaled down version with a nail and a clothespin since most of the photos I hang aren't any larger than an 8x10. I simply hammered a nail into a clothespin. And if you're curious as to why I used a clothespin its because 1) I have a ton of them and 2) Because the one end can double as an extra thick piece of wood so my nail will stay nice and straight when I use it. To use my little contraption, I hung the nail head in the hook on the back of the frame. Then I held the frame up on the wall and decided where I wanted it to go. When I knew where I wanted the frame to go I simply gave the top of the frame a light tap. Which in turn pushed the nail into the wall leaving a marker for where I need put my nail to hold the frame! Did you just have a "why didn't I think of that moment?" I only ask because I SO did when I saw this on tv. :)

-Dry out a wet cell phone. If your phone becomes the unfortunate victim of a spill or swim, you can still rescue it—you just need to act fast. Remove the battery and any memory cards from the phone, then toss it in a bowl filled with silica gel packets (dry rice will work, too, in a pinch). Leave it there at least overnight before powering it on again.

8 Clever Uses for Silica Gel: Reuse those packets of silica gel that come in a shoe box or beef jerky packet.- 1)underwater camera casings. 2) -In toolbox to keep tools free of oxidation. 3) -Dry out a wet cell phone. 4) -Keep engines dry while in storage (snowmobiles, etc.). 5) -Extend the life of razor blades, store in bowl w/ gel in medicine cabinet. 6) Fight camera condensation. 7) Dry out wet fishing flies using film canister filled w/ silica. 8) Create a dry travel bag -Toss a few packets of silica into a Ziplock bag to make an instant travel gadget bag, in case of accidental luggage spills.
8 Clever Uses For Silica Gel When most people get a packet of silica gel in a shoe box or beef jerky packet, their instinct is to toss it. But savvy DIYers have long known that the omnipresent desiccants are good for a lot more than keeping jerky dry. Here are a few uses: 1. Use in underwater camera casings: Stash a packet or two of silica gel in the underwater casing, along with the camera. 2. Toss them in your toolbox to keep your tools free of oxidation: Put two desiccant packs per drawer in your toolbox, it is just enough to dry them out and keep your tools from oxidation. 3. Dry out a wet cell phone: If your phone becomes the unfortunate victim of a spill or swim, you can still rescue it—you just need to act fast. Remove the battery and any memory cards from the phone, then toss it in a bowl filled with silica gel packets (dry rice will work, too, in a pinch). Leave it there at least overnight before powering it on again. 4. Keep engines dry while in storage: Use silica gel in my engines. Put the gel in old plastic 35-mm film canisters. Drill holes in the canisters smaller than the beads so they don't come out and put one inside each carburetor intake to help keep moisture out of the engine while it is in storage during the winter. This helps keep the bearings from pitting and the internal parts of the engine from rusting. Snowmobilers could benefit from this during the summer while their sleds are not being used. 5. Extend the life of razor blades: Oxidation on razor blades causes premature dulling. Keep a Tupperware half full of silica gel in your medicine cabinet. After each shave, blot any residual water off the blade and store the razor in the Tupperware with the silica gel. 6. Fight camera condensation: If you're taking your camera out into the cold, it can face serious condensation when you bring it back into a warm room. Remove the battery and memory card, and place the camera in a bowl of silica gel to suck up the moisture. 7. Dry out wet fishing flies: Use silica to dry out your flies when fishing on a stream. Crush or ground the silica into powder form, then place it in a film canister. When your fly becomes waterlogged, place it into the canister, put the cap on, shake it for a bit, and voilà—your fly is dry again. 8. Create a dry travel bag: This one's for the road warriors. Toss a few packets of silica into a Ziplock bag to make an instant travel gadget bag, with enough water-fighting ability to withstand accidental luggage spills.

Plastic Grocery Bag Storage - "I spent some time in front of the television folding these bags into little triangles and tossed them into a laundry basket for the time being. When my son returned home from classes, the first thing that he said when he saw them was, "Footballs! What are you going to do with all those footballs?" I had to laugh because he's 21 years old now and he still recognizes these triangles as footballs." - Polka Dot Pineapple
