Use wire to make a space to store gift wrap rolls
against the ceiling, rather than cluttering up the
floor.

Sealed envelope - Put in the freezer for a few hours, then slide a knife under the flap. The envelope can then be resealed. (hmmmmmm...)

Plastic Wrap loses it's static cling when placed in the freezer. It will attach to any bowl or plate that needs covering, but eliminates it sticking back on itself.

Chest freezers use 1/10th of the energy that an upright refrigerator does. With the addition of a thermostat, a chest freezer can end up being the ideal place to keep things cool, without freezing them.

Candles will last a lot longer if placed in the freezer for at least 3 hours prior to burning.

To remove old wax from a glass candle holder, put it in the freezer for a few hours. Then take the candle holder out and turn it upside down. The wax will fall out.

Bake cupcakes directly in ice cream cones. Easy for kids and much
more fun to eat!

Planning a tropical vacation? Don't forget the baby powder, it'll keep the
sand from sticking to your feet. I know, right - who knew?

Here's a nifty to way to buy some space under the sink with a small tension rod
to hang your common household cleaners - assuming baby can't get to them of course!

Use a velcro strip at child level to keep their favorite plush animals at hand without dumping the whole toy box.

(Plus.. it's nice to know Mr. Bo Bo is watching out for monsters under the bed when the lights go out!)
