The best tips I've ever received:

Hull strawberries easily using a straw.

Rubbing a walnut over scratches in your furniture will disguise dings and scrapes.

Remove crayon masterpieces from your TV or
 computer screen with WD40.

Stop cut apples from browning in your child’s lunch box by securing cut pieces  with a rubber band.

Overhaul your linen cupboard- store bed linen sets inside one of their own pillowcases and there will be no more hunting through piles for a match.

Pump up the volume by placing your iPhone & iPod in a bowl.  The concave shape amplifies the music.

Re-use a wet-wipes container for storing a roll of small plastic bags - they just pop up.

Add baby powder to your beach bag - it gets sand off your skin easily!

Attach a Velcro strip to the wall in a nursery or bathroom  to store soft fuzzy  toys.

 Use wire or heavy twine tied to nails on each end of a side space on a  closet shelf to store gift wrap rolls upright along the wall, rather than cluttering up the floor.

 Find tiny lost items like earrings by putting a stocking over your vacuum hose.

Make an instant cupcake carrier by cutting crosses into a box lid leaving the bottom of the box  in place for sturdiness

Forever losing your bathroom essentials?  Use magnetic strips to store bobby pins, tweezers    and clippers, behind a vanity door
Store shoes inside shower caps to stop dirty soles rubbing on your clothes in the suitcase - and you can find  shower caps in just about every hotel.

 A muffin pan becomes a craft caddy.  Magnets hold  plastic cups down to make them

 Bread tags make the perfect cord labels for a computer and such.

 Bake cupcakes directly in ice-cream cones, so much more fun and easier for kids to eat.

 Microwave your own popcorn in a plain brown paper bag.  Much healthier and cheaper than the      packet  stuff.

 Install a tension rod to hang your spray bottles by handles.

 Turn your muffin pan upside down, bake cookie-dough over the top and voila, you have cookie bowls for fruit or ice-cream.

 Freeze Aloe Vera in ice-cube trays for soothing sunburn relief.

 Create a window-box effect for a  veggie garden using lengths of rain gutters (hang them on the sunny side of your home or garage)>

  Use egg cartons to separate to store your  Christmas decorations.
