100 things I should have been able to think of on my own - a collection of tips floating around Pinterest. I had no idea about the elevator, Solo Cups, or travel web sites.

$50/week grocery budget w/ menus. This is actually a fantastic pin! *2nd pinner note* This site is amazing. :) I am so addicted!

How to Repair Wood Furniture Scratches, Nicks and More

OK, so how many burns have you gotten from oven racks? I need these! The Silicone Oven Rack Guard. It’s a pair of silicone guards that line the outer edge of your oven racks and allow you to pull the oven racks out with your bare hands. No need for pot holders, oven mitts, or towels, the silicone stays cool up to 450 degrees. They cost less than $10 for a set of two

YES!!! I was hunting for these all winter...homemade vicks shower disks If you are congested, pop one in the floor of your shower, let the steam do it's work! Not sold in stores anymore!!

I heard one lady did this...never spent a $5.00 bill but saved it instead. It two years she had nearly $12,000! Need to start this today!

??? Really ??? Punch a hole in the top of a bottle of vinegar and sit the bottle in your toilet tank. In doing this you will save water, as the tank wont fill as much, the vinegar will clean your toilet AND tank on each flush, it leaves the bathroom smelling fresh and it doesn't harm any component of your toilet OR the environment when flushed. And won't hurt the dogs when they drink out of the toilet like the blue stuff does.

    For my pool!

Got scratched DVDs you can't watch anymore? This blogger swears that this has worked for ALL of her DVDs and CDs! I say it's totally worth a try! My son has a few favorites that are not watchable anymore because they skip too much to be enjoyable. So, we'll be giving this a shot tonight! =)

Uses for Vapor Rub 1. Decongest Your Chest The most common use of Vicks is to decongest your chest and throat area. When applied to the upper chest, it provides excellent relief of cough and congestion symptoms. 2. On Your Tootsies Applying Vicks to your feet provides nighttime cough relief. Generously rub VapoRub all over your feet and cover them with socks. Within moments your cough will subside—in the morning you’ll wake up a new, hacking free woman. 3. Achy Breaky Muscles Vicks relieves sore, overworked muscles. It increases circulation and provides almost instant aid. Use a generous portion and apply it all over the aching area. (Be sure to warn your bedmate as the stench can ensure a nookie-free night.) 4. Get Rid of Nasty Nail Fungus Rub VapoRub on your toenails if you suspect you have a fungus. Within days, the nail will turn dark—this means the Vicks is killing the fungus. As your toenail grows out, the dark part will grow off and you will have fungus-free feet. Keep applying the ointment over a period of two weeks to fully cleanse nail beds of any remaining bacteria. 5. Stop Your Cat from Scratching 6. Pet Pee-Pee Deterrent If your dog or cat is not yet potty trained, put an open bottle of Vicks on the area he or she likes to mark as their territory. The smell will discourage them from lifting their legs and wetting your rug. 7. Headaches Be Gone Rub a small amount of Vicks VapoRub on your temples and forehead to help relieve headaches. The mentholated scent will release pressure in your head and instantly relieve pain. 8. Humidify Your Sleep Vicks VapoRub can be used in special types of humidifiers and vaporizers. Ensure your humidifier has an aromatherapy compartment before using. The humidifier will circulate Vicks throughout the air and keep you breathing easy all night long. 9. Paper Cuts and Splinters To prevent infection and speed up healing time, dab a small amount of Vicks on any small cut or splinter. 10. Ticks and Bugs If you get bitten by a tick, apply Vicks immediately. The strong odor might help get the critter to release itself and stop bugging you. 11. Reek-free Racehorses Professional racers smother VapoRub under the nostrils of racehorses on race day. The strong stench deters the stallions from the alluring odor of the female pony and keeps them focused on the race. 12. Go Away Mosquitoes Vicks wards off mosquitoes. Apply small dabs of Vicks VapoRub to your skin and clothes and mosquitoes will steer clear. If you do get bitten, apply Vicks to the area and cover it with a Band-Aid to relieve itching. 10. Ticks and Bugs If you get bitten by a tick, apply Vicks immediately. The strong odor might help get the critter to release itself and stop bugging you. 11. Reek-free Racehorses Professional racers smother VapoRub under the nostrils of racehorses on race day. The strong stench deters the stallions from the alluring odor of the female pony and keeps them focused on the race. 12. Go Away Mosquitoes Vicks wards off mosquitoes. Apply small dabs of Vicks VapoRub to your skin and clothes and mosquitoes will steer clear. If you do get bitten, apply Vicks to the area and cover it with a Band-Aid to relieve itching. According to WebMD, there have been a few complications in children when Vicks is used inappropriately. A few children reacted negatively and ended up hospitalized when Vicks was applied directly under the nose. Though this is extremely rare and only happens to those who are sensitive to Vicks, consumers should use caution when applying it to the face or on young children. Even though its strong stench may cost me a few friendships, I am definitely heading to the nearest drugstore to stock up on this little blue smelly bottle.

DIY fold-up work/craft table! How awesome! I so very much want!

LOVE this. Use a 9oz plastic cup to package cupcakes for bake sales or just to give as treats.

Cornmeal absorbs grease on light colored fabric or upholstery. Pour enough on to cover the soiled area and let sit for 15 to 30 minutes. Vacuum to remove the grains.

jumbo tape dispenser. {no more searching for tape.}

Put tin foil in a bowl, poor in grease. When it hardens, roll up, throw away. Duh, why didn't I think of that?

rub with waxed paper, water doesn't leave a mark anymore. I need to try this in the bathroom

Use baking soda and vinegar to fix funky towels. Over time, and with many washes, your bath towels will build up detergent and fabric softener residue, leaving them both unable to absorb as much water and smelling kinda funky when they do. Rather than give Target another lump sum, run them through the wash once with hot water and a cup of vinegar, then again with hot water and a half-cup of baking soda, as wikiHow suggests. That strips the residue from them, leaves them smelling fairly fresh again, and makes your post-shower experience a dryer one.
