Making your Life Easier

Use egg cartons to separate and store your Christmas decorations.
Create a window-box veggie patch using guttering
Freeze Aloe Vera in ice-cuber trays for soothing sunburn relief.
Turn your muffin pan upside down, bake cookie-dough over the top and voila, you have cookie dough bowls for fruit or ice-cream.
Install a tension rod to hang your spray bottles.
Microwave your own popcorn in a plain brown paper bag. Much healthier and cheaper than the packet stuff.
Bake cupcakes directly in ice-cream cones, so much more fun and easier for kids to eat.
Bread tags make the perfect cord labels.
A muffin pan becomes a craft caddy. Magnets hold the plastic cups down to make them tip-resistant.
Store shoes inside shower caps to stop dirty soles rubbing on your clothes. And you can find them in just about every hotel.
Losing your bathroom essentials? Use magnetic strips to store bobby pins, tweezers and clippers, behind a vanity door.
For those who can't stand the scrunching and bunching: how to perfectly fold a fitted sheet.
Make an instant cupcake carrier by cutting crosses into a box lid.
Find tiny lost items like earrings by putting a stocking over the vacuum hose.
Use wire to make a space to store gift wrap rolls against the ceiling, rather than cluttering up the floor.
Attach a velcro strip to the wall to store soft toys.
Add this item to your beach bag. Baby powder gets sand off your skin easily, who knew?!
Pump up the volume by placing your iPhone & iPod in a bowl. The concave shape amplifies the music.
Re-use a wet-wipes container to store plastic bags.

Overhaul your linen cupboard, store bed linen sets inside one of their own pillowcases and there will be no more hunting through piles for a match.
Stop cut apples browning in your child's lunch box by securing with a rubber band.
Rubbing a walnut over scratches in your furniture will disguise dings and scrapes.
Hull strawberries easily using a straw.

I hope you all enjoyed these awesome ideas!! Stay tuned for more fun posts to get you all excited about our Relief Society Birthday Celebration!!

Emergency Preparedness Activity

Yummy and cute "Valentines treats!!"
72 hour kits
"Go" Binders

Our Emergency preparedness activity was so much fun with so many wonderful tips and advice on how to become more prepared. Thank you Sarah Foth and Sarah Warther for making this activity possible! :) They did such an amazing job and we our grateful for their emergency preparedness talents. The things that were discussed at the activity were 72 hour kits, 3-minute kits and "Go" Binders.

I know to many preparing you and your family for an Emergency can be stressful. I believe if you ask Heavenly Father to help you know how to become more prepared he will help and guide you through that process. Once y0u make that first step it will become easier and easier to keep going and build your emergency plan.
