My Favorite Real Simple Article!

I absolutely love this Real Simple article.  I read it in a recent Real Simple issue (my favorite magazine, by the way) – but now they’ve posted it online.

The Best of Real Simple’s Time-Saving Tips goes through 30 tips that will definitely save you time… everyday.  Some of these ideas are just so brilliantly simple and logical.  Isn’t it funny how we don’t realize these things on our own?

Here are my favorites, but you have to check out the whole thing!

  • Use a lemon zester to mince garlic.
  • Put a marshmallow in your brown sugar to keep it soft.
  • Park in the last parking spot to squeeze in some exercise.
  • Use a dryer sheet on your clothes to rub out static.
  • Use conditioner as shave gel.
  • Hang your Christmas lights vertically (umm… why hadn’t I thought of this!?)
  • Cover your snow shovel with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Store your set of linens in a single pillowcase.
  • Safety pin your socks together before you wash them.

This article is full of “duh” moments!
