Saturday's Service

Who says that old people still can't contribute?

 Pancake mix in an old ketchup bottle.

 Old baggies in a Kleenex box

Clips to hold wires.

Door hangar for snacks - I think this is a great one.

 

Jewelry on a bulletin board.
These were all from Jean!


Thank you Kelly.

i saved the pictures of the clamps and the bag on the door. i don't have snacks, but that would work for supplies to, like in here for computer things that are needed. and i am going to buy some of those clamps. i have 4 USB cords plugged in my computer and the ends hang on the floor, two cameras and 2 external hard drives and is use them daily.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

Great ideas there today. Thanks for sharing them with us. I especially liked that one about the clamps and the cords too. Hope your Saturday is a super one!

Jeanie said...

I will definitely use the bags in a Kleenex box idea. We save lots of bags around here for dog walks.

jack69 said...

I love it when folks come up with and share unique (new) ideas. I always ask myself the question, "Why didn't I think of that?" hahaha

Beautiful thoughts and a beautiful day. ((HUGS)) from Wildwood...

Laurie said...

excellent tips, and good advice about not getting time back!

Beth said...

All good ideas! Thank you!

Sweet Posy Dreams said...

Never thought of using those hanging pouches in the pantry. Good idea.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

The pancake mix in an old ketchup bottle is an amazing idea!!

Cranberry Morning said...

Fun! I like the way to keep computer cords in order. And the snack storage? Wouldn't dare have that around here. Instead, I use one of those that I hang on our bathroom door (inside) to keep all the stuff that would otherwise sit out on our vanity. Have a great weekend, Sandie!

Carol Z said...

Now I have an idea for empty kleenex boxes. Wishes for a great Saturday!

Ruth Kelly said...

Clever, clever. Someone is very creative.

Sarah (Nikki) said...

oooh. I like some of these ideas for organizing. The garbage bags is good b/c here everyone throws them in a cupboard....hate that. Hugs Chatty...have a great one out there....your bud from across the border.

SweetMarie said...

I love the kleenex box for bags! Many years ago I used a cork board for my necklaces. :) The over the door holder wouldn't work in our kitchen because of our bifold doors on the pantry and we don't have enough snacks. lol But, I thing that would work great in a craft/office. You always share great stuff! Thank you and your helpful friends!

pursuingkindness said...

Love those ideas! =D Very very useful! I like the baggies in the kleenex box idea the best!

Mary said...

Hi Cheerful Sandie, I have been on blog lull. When I work, especially this time of year, I am so absorbed by work. Yesterday I spent 5 hours getting grads completed. Whewww. Yay, no school Monday! I'm going to lunch with a day time friend. Love the hints. I will do all of them.

That corgi :) said...

I like the one with the snacks behind the door! Very clever. Except if one could see the door and be tempted......

have a great day!

betty

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love the clever tips! The cord one is good for sure! Have a great day!
hugs, Linda

peggy said...

Thanks for the tips. I like them all! The lemon info is one I have used to stop drinking diet coke. Make a big glass of water with half a lemon sliced, it is so good and good for you.

Dar said...

What clever ideas, especially the clips and the jewelry board...and snacks in the shoe rack would also work for the jewelry, scarves, belts, etc...small stuff
Thanks for the fun ideas
Blessings

Ginny said...

O.K. this is funny, don't worry! This morning I have been having some stroke like symptoms...blurred vision and headache. I just put in a call to the doctor on call and he said not to worry, it sounds more like a migraine or the beginning of flu. BUT when I saw white ketchup coming out of that bottle, I was going to RUN to the E.R.!!!! Ha ha ha!!! Hey, does your daughter have migraines? For some reason I thought she does. Do they ever give her blurry vision?

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Now let's see...where do I begin...I need some lemon juice to aid in my concentration...or is that concentrated lemon juice? LOL

I really like the ideas...especially the kleenex box filled with reusable bags. Nifty. [Does nifty age me any?]

TexWisGirl said...

i've taken to drinking one to two squeezed lemons - either in hot green tea or just in water - each night. :)

Ms. A said...

I had seen the others, except for the pancake batter in the ketchup bottle. I like it!

JOHN said...

Sandy,
A lot of good ideals,I like the snack one.Your blog is always jelpful and very nice.How would I get my signature to animate like your?

Ann said...

Some very clever ideas there. I like the one with the clips for the cords

Thanks for sharing all these good ideas. I like the pancake syrup in a ketchup bottle idea. Have a good weekend!

Theresa said...

Thanks for those tips and tricks! Have a blessed weekend, HUGS!

Soggibottom said...

I'm trying to put into normal words things about water at the moment :-) Nope still can't think of any thing that I can say that is passive. Except that it happens.
I've not been out and about as Freya would say enough to follow your comments as we both move around ... normally as you know, the blogs you follow I follow and your always just above me with an answer :-) :-)
Just want to say thank you .. for every comment.. it hasn't gone unnoticed
and HEY HERE I AM on your blog site and wow... :-)I made it eventually :-) Thank you so much my dear friend... as Freya and Frankie de tabby would say.. Luvs x x x x x x x x x xx

Paula said...

You make me want to go make some pancakes so I can squeeze the batter from a ketchup bottle. What a good idea.

Jim said...

Nice Saturday things you found, Sandie. I especially like your hints for seniors.

Some I might try if I can remember them. Do you know how long pancake batter will last?

Next time I find an empty Klenex box it will start putting my newspaper sleeves in it. We use them for picking after Katrin (our toy poodle).

Tweedles -- that's me said...

you always have the most wonderful ideas!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Very ingenious! I like the snack storage as well.

Maggie Ann said...

What great ideas! Just maybe my brain will remember one of them...lol

Jackie said...

I love the door hanger and the bulletin board idea. I am forever getting all of my necklaces in a tangle!

Happy Saturday night and blessings for a great week!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...I like that pancake batter in a ketchup bottle! Cool.

Lots of good info. Thanks for sharing.

Have a good Sunday. Susan

Nonnie said...

The last quote is most convicting!

Crystal Mary said...

What a lot of great hints.Someone has a good mind.
I remember once squeezing a lemon and spraying the front of my blouse with it, and it reacted like bleach, and took the color out. I like it used for a bad cough. Mix lemon juice and honey in equal parts (1/2 cup each) with a little cooking oil. Stir and sip it slowly over two days and your cough goes...amazing. xx

Miss Debbie said...

Great ideas!

Wendy said...

Amen to that last quote! Thanks for posting all of these cool ideas!

Mevely317 said...

So many cute ideas ... which one to choose first?
I'm not fond of pancakes, but want to try this "just because."
...and can't help but wonder what sort of ungodly mess I'd make, getting the batter into that ketchup bottle? lol.

EM Illustrator said...

Some more interesting info. I like the pictures and the clips for cables, smart solution. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Lynn said...

My grandmother used to drink lemon water before she went to bed. I do it when I have a cold, but should probably do it all the time. (Although I'm usually wanting to avoid those middle of the night trips to the loo. :)

Betsy Adams said...

Hi There, Great post and some really good ideas. My mother was one to save things --like baggies, etc... She had little places like you mentioned to organize them... Love it!!!!

I love lemonaide --and things made with lemons....

Hope you have had a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Jackie said...

I don't know how I missed this post, but I did; I've just discovered it, and I'm so happy that I did.
What great ideas!!! Love these!!!
:))
Hugs,

Sharon said...

Loved this! And yes, the snack *holder* is a really great idea! Beats hiding them under the couch cushions like I do now...

:)

Anthony said...

That is pretty neat...As for me, I believe that everyone, regardless of age, is worthy of being treated with equal dignity/respect.

Whosyergurl said...

Sandy, do you do Pinterest yet? If not, I think you would like it! Check it out if you haven't already. xo, Cheryl

Debbie said...

Uh Oh. I must be old because I do most of those things. I do not do the ketchup bottle one, but what a great idea!!

As you probably read, I had reason to be absent yet again last week.

I don't think I am ever going to get that groove back. Maybe God doesn't want me to. That's a thought.

Alice Arthigton said...

the catchup bottle and paper clips are some neat ideas that actually make sense

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

The ketchup bottle and Kleenex box ideas are so cool! All of them are awesomely useful. Thanks!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

I love it! I've seen a few on pinterest and keep saying I will do :)

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

I have, actually, on a number of occasions, but now that I am much closer to being old than young, I am in the process of reevaluating my position. That is, when I can remember what it is. Sigh.

Together We Save said...

I love the reuseable ideas!! We actually do the cork board one.

Belle said...

Thanks for those tips. I'm going to put my baggies in a Kleenex box right now!

Melanie said...

All good ideas, Sandie! I like the clip one for the wires. My computer stuff can get tangled and I think that would help! :-)

Grandma Bonnie said...

I think I should try that door hanger in my pantry. Those are some great ideas. Thanks for sharing.

Betty Manousos said...

well, those are some great ideas.
and practical as well.
thanks for sharing :)

ocmist said...

I enjoyed reading all of these ideas and some I'd never heard of before, but sound good. I do know that lemon juice (fresh lemonade) really helped whenever I would have a gallbladder attack! :)
