I Wish I had Thought of That!

My addiction to Pinterest has shown me more great ideas in a few days than I could come up with in a lifetime.

Here are some of the great little tips and tricks I’ve found:

How about a Pringles can to keep uncooked spaghetti fresh?

Maybe you need a cute way to get cupcakes to the kids’ school, but don’t want to shell out big bucks for a fancy dessert tray? Make your own – cheap and easy!

And those are just a few of the amazing ideas, tutorials, and projects I’ve found. If I ever get free time, I might become dangerous… and it’s all thanks to Pinterest.

Share with me some of the creative ideas you’ve found…. I’ll be sure to pin them too! 🙂

    Cool stuff! I kinda feel like a dweeb for not thinking of them myself. Another example of the Internet rocking the mommy world.
