Something occurred to me the other day. Every time I go to plug something in, I always seem to have to turn the plug around. It takes two times to get it right. So, I had a brilliant thought that why don’t I “mark” the top of the plug so I don’t have to fuss with it. Brilliant idea! For each appliance I reached for, I grabbed a bright colored Sharpie Marker or my bright colored nail polish and “marked” the top of the plug with a colored dot. Now, I never have to flip the plug around! I told this to a few people and they thought the same thing, what a great idea it was.
So get your Sharpies out or your bright colored nail polish and make the right connection with all your plugs! You’ll thank me later!
And, if you want another good piece of advice for those of you who love sour cream….here it is! How many of you have opened up your sour cream tub only to find the top filled with a watery substance that you usually just pour out in the sink? I used to find this every time and it bugged me until I did something ingenious. When I was finished using the sour cream, I just take a spoon and flatten the entire top of the sour cream in the tub so that there are no dips. The next time you open up your sour cream, there will be NO watery top! Amazing, I know! Try it, you will be amazed too.
Have a great weekend! If you have any tips too that you would like to share, please do!
