Each Tuesday I will list two of my favorite tips or tricks that I either already do, read online or have heard from another parent. Here's this weeks:
1. With the departure of plastic bags from the world and the arrival of reusable shopping bags, I find myself scrambling for somewhere to throw dirty diapers and kitty litter. I came across this tip online for additional sources of bags : bread or hamburger buns (just shake out the crumbs), grocery store fresh produce bags, newspaper bags, toilet paper and paper towel plastic packaging and wipes plastic wrapping.
2. If your child is a budding artist and loves to paint, you know what a mess it can be. A good way to keep paint colors separate and reusable after the little creators run off to the next thing is to use a 7 day pill container for the paint. That way the colors stay separated and you can just close and reuse.
