Great Tip Tuesday!

* Keep all of your log-on information and passwords written on an index card and keep it next to your computer. This way, when you log onto a site, the information is right there at your fingertips.

* Try rolling your clothes rather than folding them when trying to fit more into a duffle bag or suit case. You'll be surprised at how much more you can fit in your bag! And your clothes won't get wrinkled either!!

* Instead of hunting for instructions or appliance manuals all over the house, put them in a three-ring binder.

* Put a clear, hanging shoe bag holder on the inside of a front closet door and use it to hold gloves, scarves, hats, etc.

* Limited closet space in your house? Put long, under-the-bed storage bins for your sheets! Have sheets for each person's bed under their bed. Free up a whole shelf in your hall closet!
To make you smile!!

If I understand things right... the "How to satify your woman everytime" is giving her an extra thick piece of melba toast?

All these years I've wasted...

I've always heard the clothes rolling thing, but I've never done it!

The tip re rolling your clothes is a great one...something that I have been doing for years too. Love how well it works.

On another note, I was wondering if you would ever consider joining us for Chick Chat, Queenie Jeannie. After reading your post on how you know that you been in Georgia too long, I think you would be perfect for a segment where we feature bloggers from the South. Are you interested?

Oh I might just steal that under the bed sheet idea, my house has no closet space!

What is that? Toast?

Hubby takes his passcodes and PIN numbers and writes them as phone numbers. If the PIN or password is too short, he adds extra numbers to make it fit the format.

I have to say, I'm a BIG fan of rolling our clothes when we pack. Everything fits so much better in the suitcase, and is less wrinkled when we get there. And I started my girls on under-the-bed storage containers a long time ago. Girls just have too much stuff, ya know?

Yep, great tits.

Sorry, I mean tips.

I'm a roller! You would not believe the amount of space it saves!

The shoe holder in the coat closet for hats and mittens and things! That's one I've never heard of and would be SO much better than having them all fall on top of me whenever I open the door. :)

When I went to Italy in 2006 I rolled all my clothes...for 9 days...and actually had a carry on sized case. It was awesome. I did the same this year with a rolling duffle...and had my stuff and another friends stuff in my duffle....rolled. That was the greatest helpful idea I had ever been given. I have not packed a big suitcase since. Thanks for sharing these cool ideas.

I already use boxes under my bed for clothes, but for my kids' and guest rooms using them for sheets is a great idea.
