    You know those metal do dads they give you when you buy a gallon of paint? It looks like a bottle opener on one end and then has a small hook to put under the lip of the paint can lid so you can lift the lid off. Well if you have an extra one around put it with your kitchen utensils. It is perfect for lifting those pull tabs on cans up just enough so you can get your finger in it to pull off the lid. No more broken fingernails, chipped manicures or if you have acrylic nails it is much easier on them too. My DH thought of this and I love it.
