I use saltine crackers in my salt shakers to keep the salt flowing. Even in the most humid weather it works great.

Spray the plant with water in your sink and let it dry on the counter; and if it is a large tree, take it outside and spray with your hose and let the sunshine dry it.
I find this is a time-saver during spring cleaning.

When I am ready to change seasonal clothing I wash them and hang them on a hanger. I put them back into the closet but I hang the hangers backward. The following year if there are any hangers that are still backwards I know that I haven't worn them and they can go into the Goodwill bag.

I keep a container of baby wipes in my bathroom and when I have to go I wipe the sink and commode with those. I save time on cleaning that way. When I do clean in there it is easier to clean. You can also keep windex wipes to wipe down mirrors and sink backsplashes.

I loved the hanging sweater keeper turned into a quick place to store and sort things.
I used to have a basket for my housekeeper to toss things left around. I fined my children (they fined me) for things in the basket and we used the money to buy our housekeeper something awesome

Both money-saving & time-saving tip. When potatoes are on sale, I buy 20 pounds though there are only 2 in my family. Cook a pan full when you make mashed potatoes. Pack leftovers in sandwich ziplocks, press out the air & freeze. Heat in the microwave, stir with a fork & serve.Tastes like fresh.

I accidentally discovered a great way to compact and store used toilet paper rolls in my bathrooms. I use an empty Kleenex box and as the rolls are used up, I flatten them and store them in the empty box. It is convenient, attractive and I end up with a 'brick' of cardboard rolls ready to recycle.

Is your child waking you up crying because of the monster in their room? Next time, before it happens again, take a can of room freshener, decorate it with pretty paper and write the words "Monster Spray" or draw a monster face for the little ones. Just spray the monsters away! Worked for mine!

Purchasing all of your produce for at least 5 days in advance will help start your work week on the right foot. Rinse all fruits and vegetables in a vinegar water bath. Trim and cut into pieces the suit your families needs. Place foods into individual baggies for quick and easy "grab and go" ideas.

A time saving tip during the holiday season is to double recipes. Then use one and freeze the rest for another night. This works well for casseroles, lasagna, steamed rice for stir-fry, pizza dough, holiday baking and much more.

In the summer, I often pack a homegrown tomato and some mozzerella cheese for my lunch. I alternate slices of cheese and tomato on a plate. For extra flavor sprinkle lightly with Oregano.

If you like tomatoes on your sandwich or in your salad, pack them separrately so you can add them later.
