Shoe Boxes Double Storage in File Cabinet DrawersI was setting this shoe box on my open craft file cabinet drawer, and I accidentally put something heavy inside the box, and it fit right in! Imagine my surprise when it not only fit but closed!
Use Plastic Tub Under Dish StrainerI have almost no counter space. I bought a small drainer but realized I didn't have the pan for it. While shopping lately, I came upon this tub for $.25 and thought it might work.
Use for Old Eyeglasses CaseI'm recycling my old eye glass cases. This one, I have found, is just the right size for three pairs of my craft paper scissors. I can turn back the flap and sew on a soda can tab/ring to hang it up.

Meal Planning Made EasyMy trick to avoid eating out is planning! I have a magnetic white board with each week's menu at the top and a spot for requests at the bottom. The kids love making requests and sometimes we do fun theme weeks.
Store GPS in Camera BagIf you want a cheap, yet stylish and effective, alternative to buying one of the more expensive cases for your GPS device, just make a trip to your local dollar store. I found a nicely padded camera case with Velcro opening that works just perfectly for my GPS.
A Garbage Bag DispenserI hate the way that rolls of trash bags get unrolled, so I found a great solution. I cut a small square hole in the top of the container with my jig saw, making a slot for the trash bags to "pop up" like they do on the baby wipe box.
