It's always good to look at things around the house that you can use for things other then what they were made for.

I got an email with my brother with these fun tips.  I'm not sure who took the pictures, so I can't give them credit.  But, I wanted to share them with all of you.

You may have seen or even used some of them before but I have a feeling some of them you have not dreamed of.

So many of us are trying our best to recycle and not have so much throw away trash.  This is a great idea to help recycle and also stay neat and tidy.

This would also work for many other things, like cupcakes, making chocolate in molds, use it for salad dressings, waffles and tons of other things.

I love this idea.  What a great way to keep your bagels fresh and tasty.

I always use a straw in my drinks.  I don't normally drink out of cans though.  But, sometimes if I'm going somewhere I will grab a can of diet Coke to drink in the car.  I will be using this idea for sure! 

I can't tell you how many times I put a straw in my diet Coke can and look down to see it laying on the ground because of the carbonation pushing it out of the can.  So this will be great for people like me.

I don't have a fancy car that has a seat warmer but I sometimes drive my sisters car that does.  I love the seat warmers and wish I had one.

Now there is another use for them.  This of course will work for any hot food.  Even if it's just going through a fast food drive thru.

I have to admit, this is one tip I have heard of and I even tried this before with cheesecake.  It works great.  For some reason I never did it again.

I'm happy to be reminded about it though so I can do it again.

This is something I have done several times and it really does work.  Not sure why or how.  I just know it does.

I love pistachios!  I do hate those shells that are hard to open though.  So, I'm going to do this for sure!  It's Mother Nature's way of helping us enjoy these yummy treats.

Well I don't eat round sandwich meat.  I don't eat meat at all.  But, I love this idea.  It just dawned on me that some of the cheese I eat is round so I can use this tip then.  I hate having a sandwich that gives you bites of only bread.  Don't you?

I wish I had known this when I went camping a few weeks again.  I would have tried this.  I have a feeling any chips would work.  Well, at least the ones that fried.  I think the oil in them would cause them to burn great. 

Well, I hope you learned a thing or two and will try some of these.  If you have tried any in the past, let me know how they worked.

I've linked up with Coastal Charm Nifty Thrifty Tuesday.  Pop on over to get other great ideas.

Some fun tips here! I've always done the straw and the pistachio one, ever since I was little. Cute idea with the sandwich too!
