Mrs. Fixit: Handy Helpers

Monday, February 06, 2012

All of us could use an extra hand now and then. I have a couple of things you can grab that will really help you out!

Caribeener hooks are generally thought of as a sporting item, but i found these large hooks and they're so handy!

I can hook them around a bunch of grocery bags and use the rubber grip as a handle to carry them all at once.

A friend hooks one to her stroller to hook her purse and diaper bag in place.

I've always loved hook and loop tape for all sorts of things, but it's a one time kind of thing. I love the one sided variety that hooks to itself. I use it to bundle moldings and wrapping paper rolls so they don't roll around.

I also love it for corrallling cords, securing items in the car, and keeping electronics and their cords together. Use your imagination - there has got to be a million ways this stuff is handy.

Finally, forget holding a flashlight in your teeth or teetering it on your shoulder. Grab a flash light that stands on it's own. This one has a pop out tri-pod and a pivoting head so i can point it right where i need it and have my hands free to work.

Now, lets give these tips a hand for being so helpful!!! I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
