Do you have a subscription to Real Simple Magazine?  I do and I wait in anticipation for each and every issue.  Real Simple is filled with great information and ideas.  How can you not like a magazine that provides a bookmark every month? And let me tell you – I use that bookmark!

My favorite section of the magazine is

Simple Solutions  – “New Uses for Old Things”

This month I learned a new purpose for a toothpick

Original Purpose: Spearing hors d’oeuvres. 

AHA! Use: Marking a roll of clear packing tape.  After each use, place a toothpick under the loose end.  The next time you have something to seal, pick up where you left off. 

Reward: Tape and fingernails that aren’t picked to shreds.

Since I have learned some great AHA! Uses from this magazine, I think I’ll start sharing them with you in a regular post.  🙂


Update!: Just learned about Works for Me Wednesdays over at Rocks in My Dryer.  Check out all the other Fabulous Tips posted there!
