Want to have a beautiful flower bouquet without the fuss of learning how to arrange them? If you have an old toothbrush holder you aren’t using, fill the holes with water and stick bunches of fresh flowers into each hold. Or, if you have some inexpensive fake flowers, you can stick them in there as well. For more information, visit http://www.marthastewart.com/272398/flower-arranging-shortcut.


Did you know you can use your salad spinner for more than just your lettuce? You can add salad dressing and use it to evenly coat your salad greens. You can also use it to drain macaroni or to dry fruits and vegetables before storing. You could also use it to remove excess water from the kids’ swimming suits by giving them a spin. For more salad spinner uses, visit http://www.frugalvillage.com/2012/06/01/uses-for-a-salad-spinner/.


If you like old vintage books but don’t know where to store them, just use them as little shelves. All you need is cloth or leather-bound books and two brackets. For instructions on how to put it together, visit http://www.shelterness.com/diy-shelves-made-of-real-books/.
