MibsBlog Thrifty Tips – Feb 2012

Here I will try to share any money/time-saving tips that I have found to be useful each month.

Do feel free to share yours also if you don’t mind me keeping the list updated!

( I will of course name you as the author of your tip!)


Keep Your Nails Clean 

Don’t do what I just did, and forget your grandmother’s advice to always scrape your nails on a bar of soap before gardening, the object being to fill them with soap so they don’t get all clogged and stained with soil!

( and no, this is not a plug for any particular brand of soap!)


A Crafty Tip

A great tip from my Mother Dearest for all you crafty peeps out there, save those aerosol and similar caps to use as paint/glue pots when you need something to pour a small amount into!

 A Measure Of Kitchen Magic

Baby milk scoops make perfect kitchen measures as they usually, levelled off, give you a perfect 1 oz ( do check on the carton before disposing of it though, just in case the different brands vary some!)

And please do ignore the obvious fact that I must starve poor BabyMibs to make him eat scoop handles!



 A Fab Toy Storage Solution

As modelled by the scary red-eyed BabyMibs, another fab idea Mother Dearest came up with, instead of paying well over the odds for designer toy storage boxes, why not invest in a couple of under-bed drawers instead?

Mine came with castors attached so easy to move for cleaning, or making extra-large train tracks, and they hold heaps of toys tidily, yet still in view so they get played with and not forgotten!
