Some quick tips to get you started

Nailing small nails is not an easy task as you may find it difficult to hold them in your hands. An easy way to hold them is to place them between the teeth of combs.

If you want to sharpen razor blades you can use the striker on the matchbook.

Duct tape can be used in a variety of ways. Apply to leaky air ducts to save $$$.  Or have your daughter make her prom dress out of the stuff to save even more $$$!

Do you want sandpaper to last longer? Then you can wet the back of the sandpaper and wrap it around a wooden block. It will work better this way.

Sometimes you may have difficulty in opening the drawers of your dressers and other tables.  Apply candle wax on the runner side of the drawers. They should open and close much easier.

Have the door hinges come loose?  Remove the loose screws and fill the screw holes with little strips of shingles dipped in glue.  After they dry, trim off the excess and your screws will have fresh new wood to bite into.

Is your closet damp most of the time? You can use charcoal to control the moisture in your closet. All you have to do is to put some charcoal in a can and place it in a corner. Or close the can and punch some holes in it. The charcoal will absorb the moisture.  Just don’t get any on your clothes.
