I have two ideas that work for me this week.
1. Shower Curtains: Our bath tubs use shower curtains and I was constantly replacing them with new liners because of mildew. I've taken them down and washed them in the washing machine or other ways, but ultimately, they would just need to be replaced. The last ones I bought were a little nicer than I normally buy and really hated to just throw them away. Recently when I was cleaning the tub with "Scrubbing Bubbles" cleaner I sprayed some on the shower curtain too. THE MILDEW CAME OFF WITH PRACTICALLY NO WORK!!! I just wiped it off and rinsed it by directing the shower head towards it. I'm sure most other people already knew this, but it just dawned on me.
2. Coupons: I have a love/hate relationship with coupons..... I love to use them, but hate to keep up with them.
Here's the way they look when they get out of hand:
Carrying around a plastic box like this DOESN'T work for me! I threw away all the coupons that had expired, of course. I also went ahead and got rid of the coupons I routinely clip, but NEVER end up using. For instance refrigerated biscuits and cookies. There are always a bunch of these in the paper, but we just never use many of them.
I have now reverted back to my old organizer until a better solution arises.
Having a small organizer works for me. No plastic boxes and no notebooks.
