This tip comes from an article I noticed in the Wall Street Journal. The story tells of a woman in Boise who “saw a great deal on eggs recently and she bought 10 dozen,”. She cracked them into into ice cube trays, froze until solid, and and transferred to bags for cold storage. “Not many people know eggs freeze,” she said. I read you should add a pinch of salt.
Well, I never. I just discovered you can freeze milk and butter and that’s been a great tip for me since I cook for 1-1/2 people (Lucky and Rebel account for the half person since I always add some human food to their Kibbles and Bits.) But I can never use up milk, butter and eggs before they pass their expiration date. I may give this tip a try.

Toilet paper organizer
If you too, you have a drawer or box filled with tangled cords, roll them like they were when you purchase them and fasten them together by slipping them inside an empty
toilet paper roll or a paper towel roll that has been cut to the appropriate size. This works for extension cords, phone cords and even smaller pieces of computer cord/wire. You can label on the roll in magic marker with a notation of what kind of cord is inside.
Another Cat Litter Choice
Here’s a great suggestions for cat lovers…and a great way to keep the smell of the cat litter box under control. Try potting soil. Either mix half and half with your favorite brand of kitty litter, or use it alone. It doesn’t track on the floor any worse than other cat
litter, it’s easy to clean, tames the smell, and the cats love it! Best of all, it’s way less expensive than commercial brands of cat litter. (Maybe you could even grow catnip right there in the box! Maybe not.)
