Quickie Garbage Can Re-lining

I keep a stash of garbage can liners (a dozen or so- refilling as necessary) in the bottom of my garbage can under the open bag currently in use. That way, whenever the bag is full, I just tie it shut, lift it out, and reach down to the bottom to get a fresh one, and immediately re-line the can.

Water Bottles Stashed Around Home

By accident, I started leaving bottles of water around my home. I wash & refill them every night before I go to bed & have one at my bedside at night. I know how much I've drunk each day by how much is left in each. This way, water's always at hand.

Clean Vs. Not Exactly Clean Clothes

If I wear something for just a little while and don't want to throw it in the laundry, I hang the hanger backwards in my closet. Then, I can tell that piece of clothing didn't just come out of the laundry, but it is still clean enough to wear.

Oven Racks

You know when you go to clean your oven, especially the self clean oven, and you go to put your racks back in, and they are a little laggy and stiff??? Well, if you put a little olive oil on paper towel, and rub each end with the oil, slide them back in the oven. They glide right back in! Voila!!
