Adhere cork boards (available at the dollar store) to the inside of a kitchen cupboard door to keep important notices from being lost. This way, they are out of sight and prevents from cluttering your fridge or counters--helping you maintain a tidy kitchen! :)

Protect doorknobs and hardware in the kitchen and bathroom when you're painting by wrapping foil around them to catch dribbles. The foil molds to the shape of whatever it's covering and stays firmly in place until the job is complete!
Easy Sinus Relief
All you need is:
1 1/2- 2 cups uncooked white long grain rice (DO NOT use instant rice. It will catch fire/burn when being heated.)
An old cotton sock
Optional: A few drops of eucalyptus essential oil
Note: If you want to use this for headache relief, add peppermint essential oil instead of the eucalyptus.
Just pour the rice into the sock (and essential oil if you are using it) and tie closed. Next time you are in need of sinus relief, just heat it in the microwave for approximately 45 seconds (depending), and place wherever you are in pain.
***WARNING: BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN HEATING--IF YOU ARE UNAWARE OF HOW 'POWERFUL' YOUR MICROWAVE IS, BEGIN WITH 30 SECONDS AND REHEAT IN 10 SECOND INCREMENTS TO BE SAFE.

Mill a handful of grains in your grinder and the fine particles will absorb stale odors and clean out residual grounds and oil. Discard the rice and wipe clean.
