This month, I am going to give you a few tips on things that will not only save you money, but are easy to do.

For Easter this year, when you are done hard boiling your eggs and are about to dye them, wrap some rubber bands around the cooled eggs and then dip them. You can make your own patterns, and when the eggs are dry, take the rubber bands off and re-wrap them; then you can dip them in a different color dye to cover the rubber band pattern.

I don’t know about you, but I hate the rust rings that my husband’s shaving cream can makes on the bathroom sink top. Solution? Take a plastic lid from a cottage cheese container and place the shaving cream can in the middle. Draw a circle around the bottom of the can with a magic marker. Make the circle a little bit bigger than the bottom of the can and then cut out the circle with a pair of sharp scissors. Place a few drops of some sort of glue or paste on the plastic lid, set the can on the glue, let it dry--and problem solved. No more rust rings. The lid goes in the trash, along with the empty can.

Do you grate your own cheese, but hate the mess it leaves behind? No problem. Set your grater in a large zip lock bag that you have used before and washed to re-use. The cheese goes in the bag and not all over your kitchen counter. Just zip the bag and pop it in the refrigerator or freezer.

I hope that you like or use one or more of these ideas.

My thought for the month is for all of our readers to have a happy and Holy Easter.
