Clever ideas to make life easier...

***These are not my ideas...lol!  A friend of mind sent me this email & I just had to share it. (I like the wrapping paper idea & the fitted sheet).
Stop cut apples from browning in your child's lunch box by securing with a rubber band.

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.

Pump up the volume by placing your iPhone & iPod in a bowl.  The concave shape amplifies the music.
Use wire to make a space to store gift wrap rolls against the ceiling, rather than cluttering up the floor.

Make an instant cupcake carrier by cutting crosses into a box lid.

For those who can't stand the scrunching and bunching:  how to perfectly fold a fitted sheet.
Forever losing your bathroom essentials?  Use a magnetic strip to store bobby pins, tweezers and clippers behind a vanity door.

Bread tags make the perfect cord labels.

Create a window-box veggie patch using guttering.

Pretty neat ideas!
