January is traditionally “Organizing Month” and as many of you know it is one of my favorite topics. Living in an RV it is doubly important that things are organized and all have a place to be stored. Here are some tips that can help you start your Getting Organized in 2017
TIP: Taming and Organizing Your Paperwork This is a great time to do this as you prepare to get your tax documents together. http://www.moneytalksnews.com/7-foolproof-organizing-tricks-you-dont-know/?
TIP: If you’ve cooked your heart out for the holidays and are ready for a break get out your slow cooker or crockpot and make use of some of these great suggestions from Jilee. And don’t forget those crokpot liners I talk about in my seminars. http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/slow-cooker-hacks?utm_source=DailyRSSNewsletter&utm_medium=. Just an FYI…be careful of generic liners. We purchased a store brand and 3 of them leaked!
Christmas Light Storage Tip: What a great way to store your Christmas lights to keep them from getting tangled and this method takes up very little space. Just wrap them around an empty paper towel tube.
Tip from reader: You may already know this, but I didn’t. Many of us live in areas where we may experience power outages. These are especially common in RV parks and campgrounds. More than once we have come home to see clocks flashing because the power went out and came back on. We never knew how to tell how long it was out, and if food in the freezer may have defrosted and then re-froze. With this tip, you will know if food needs to be discarded or if it is safe to keep. Place a cup of water in your freezer and let it freeze solid. Then place a coin on top. If you come back and discover that your power has been out, check the cup. If the coin is still on top of the ice, your freezer didn’t defrost, and your food is safe. If the coin is on the bottom of the cup, your food has been compromised, and should be discarded. If the coin is part of the way down in the cup, larger pieces of food are probably safe, but smaller pieces may have thawed and could be at risk. I think that is a great tip and I thank Nancy for sharing it. Please feel free to share it with others. Thanks Sue. A great idea.
An Oldie but a Goodie Tip: I have given this tip for your kitchen and bathroom drains but have never used it in the shower. I certainly will try it. However I would clean the drain out before rather than after. http://www.hometalk.com/24007102/unclog-that-drain-naturally-?se=fol_new-20170105-2&date=20170105&slg=8951e67fbfc962a6e62fb2a508e144bb-15287402
The ultimate stain remover that actually works on a seriously set in stain! Never buy commercial stain removers again!
The mixture is:
1 tsp. Dawn dishwashing detergent
3-4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide
couple tablespoons of baking soda.
Scrub on with a scrubbing brush.
One of our readers added this: i can now say it works on every carpet stain i have encountered as well. pet stains, spaghetti sauce, coke, tea, rust, greasy/dirt shoe spots. I got ’em all out with this!! Thanks Sandy.
My most used RV Space Saver tool over the holidays: The Salsa Maker. I used it to chop nuts, cut shortening into flour, chop veggies, make salsa, and make guacamole. Love this product and it can be used to chop just about
anything. https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=35&product_id=131. It will be the best $20.00 you ever spend. Customer Marilu says…“my favorite product!”
Remember most all our products have a lifetime replacement guarantee.
