Clever uses for everyday items...

I'm always on the hunt for A) an easier  B)  a less expensive  C) a fun, creative way to use an item.  Here are a few ideas that cover the bases. Let me know if you try any of them. The photo above is an example of how you can transform your photos into a unique fabric print. 
An apron as a curtain...adorable.
Fruit cups as office management
Tacs as a necklace organizer.
Cd case as bagel holder! Genius.
Comb or pick to steady a nail so you don't hit your fingers. Ouchless
 Scarf as a drapery tie-back
Finally! Use a staple remover to open a key ring and save your nails!
Rubber band around paint can for less drips (This has my name all over it)
The straw won't float up
Folded post it will catch drill dust

I've been surfing online greater than 3 hours today, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It's lovely value enough for me.
Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the internet will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.
