So, if you aren't familiar with Pinterest, it's pretty much amazing. A running catalog of things you find online that you love. I thought it would be fun to share with you ideas on one of my boards. This is just one board I have, called "TIPS"
Here are [some] of my many finds:

magazine boxes stoging all your saranwrap, parchment paper, tin foil etc...

Freezing portion Ideas
This particular ideas is for meat, but could be used for juice and liquids if you froze them with the skewers laying on top, and something heavy on top.

Removing rust from cast iron skillet


How to ice/frost sugar cookies. (and make them look awesome)

Find it hard to get sand off your baby at the beach?

Cooking Cupcakes
My cupcakes always look like the one on the right.... now we shall try this!

Cold Ice Packs-Kid friendly! 

these are rice bags. You keep them in your freezer and pull them out for the bumps and bruises. They would bring a smile to any teary eye

Playing Cards Storage!!

No more slipping Rug!


Car Trash Can!

 Road trip clips:
Road trip clips: One clip for each kid.... If they are sweet, clip stays up, if they are not, clip comes down. Everyone with a clip on the visor gets a treat at the next stop :-)

great ideas! In July we went to the beach by my grandma's house. On our way out the door she handed us some baby powder and said she read somewhere that it helps get the sand off. Not only does it WORK, but it works AMAZINGLY, forget rinsing your feet off. let the sand dry, and if it is only on your arms and feet, go out to the parking lot and apply the baby powder right before you get in the car. you will not only be sand free, but smooth skin and smell good! you will still probably need to rinse your kids head to toe at the showers though :)
