Good to Know: A Roundup

 I want to share a few handy things I have seen/learned over the last week or so.  I mean, who doesn't want a few tips to add to their toolbox, right?

Glue a rock to the top of a empty pill bottle, bury the bottle so that only the rock shows.  A spare key is hidden inside. what a great idea!
To start things off, look at this nifty idea for hiding a spare key.  Take an empty pill bottle, put a spare key inside and refasten the pill bottle lid.  Then hot glue a rock to the lid (preferably a rock similar to other small outdoor rocks on your property.  Once the rock has dried, dig a hole and sink the bottle in so that only the rock is showing above ground.  Voila!  Hidden key and no one the wiser.  Just make sure that you remember where you buried your "treasure". (thanks to for the tip!)

Next, do you have an ongoing struggle with weeds in your lawn/flower beds/garden/in general somewhere on your property?  The answer is probably yes; who are we kidding, we all have weeds that irk us.  Have you ever tried this vinegar tip?

I haven't yet and I can't wait to.   Someone try this and report back!

Finally, this is a simple yet brilliant idea.  Take a door organizer for your shoes...and repurpose into a snack organizer for your pantry. 

WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS?! snack organizer- no need for those dozens of empty boxes folks leave empty in the pantry
Awesome, right?!  You're welcome :)  See you next time on Good to Know!
