My pinterest board titled “Tips & Tricks” has been BOOMING lately. I just keep stumbling upon fantastic ideas that will save me time and money, or are otherwise just plain clever! I couldn’t hold it in any longer- it is time for a “post vomit”, or in other words, over load of ideas in one post!

Emergency Contact stickers for car seats. You know what, this is actually a really good idea. I knew someone who was in a car accident with her child. The mom was thrown from the vehicle and laid unconscious and unseen as first responders found the infant but had no way of contacting family as the baby was transported to a nearby hospital with non life threatening injuries. The mom was found in the brush along the highway almost AN HOUR after the accident. Could you imagine your baby at the hospital for an hour before staff new her name or family information?

Put cupcake liners in a spaghetti jar. My 2 year old loves making cupcakes and muffins. We always have mix on hand. This little insider tip will sure make my cupboard less messy with all the liners laying around.
How to transfer ink designs onto wood using wax paper. This idea is just too cool. Makes me wish we owned a printer.
