Missing an oven mit? Instead of tossing the spare, move it to the bathroom. These mits are perfect for protecting your counters from all hot items including hair crimpers, curlers, and straighteners.
3. Plastic Easter Eggs
Before you make a trip to the grocery store for more Tupperware or plastic bags, take a moment to dig into your Easter stash. Those colorful pastel eggs are good for more than Easter candy. Pack your grade-schooler’s cheesy goldfish in these eggs for an easily hatched snack at school.
