    Used dryer sheets are great dust cloths. I also tuck new ones into my boots when I store them for the summer; they smell new and fresh every winter.

    Oh, and one last thing - DH & I keep a fairly large "thrift store box" going at all times. We try to fill the box every week - we are really over-cluttered and this is a way for us to slowly work on getting rid of all the extra "stuff". We try to discard 1 or 2 things for every new thing we bring into the house.

    This time of year I do a lot of baking for my business, holiday parties and church functions. Of the most requested recipes (such as my pecan pie bars and apple pear teacakes) I premeasure my dry ingredients and put them in plastic tubs or quart size baggies and label them, that way when I need to bake a batch, most of the ingredients are ready so the baking process goes quickly.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I use a empty coffee (plastic) container, to fill with used coffee grinds. When filled, I take this to my flowers beds or vegetable garden. They are great for them and they bring worms to work the soil. Saw this on TV last year. It has improved my soil nicely.
