Wise Grandma

Ants--they aren't strong, but they store up food all summer. Proverbs 30:25

Good morning, if you haven't had the pleassure of meeting my Grandmother Joanna, you'r missing out! This sweet, fiesty, smart as a tack, lady always has the best advice. She's lived a lifetime, she can name almost any plant, and tell you what it's used for. If there ever is a disaster she is the one you want by your side! She sends me forwards all the time, most of them are super helpful! Here is today's
 Reynolds Wrap has lock in taps to hold the roll in place
 The color on the bread tab indicates how fresh the bread is
You can divide and store ground meat in a zip loc bag. Just break off how much you need and keep the rest in the freezer for later. So much easier than dividing and  individually wrapping each pound or half pound. 
 If you place a wooden spoon over a pot of boiling water, it won't boil over.
 Marshmallows can cure a sore throat. Perfect for kids who don't like medicine.
 Stuffing a dryer sheet in your back pocket will repel mosquitoes. 
 You can freeze cupcake batter for later use. 
 You can paint upholstery.
 You can make your own laundry soap. I am doing this (and will post about it) after we use up the soap that we have now.
 You can dye plastic buttons.
  You can run a paper bag through your printer
You can print directly onto fabric.
 A dry erase marker can be used on most desk tops
 You can mail anything that will take a stamp and weighs less than 13ounces without a box?
 If you break your blender jar you can replace it with a mason jar
 Cereal canisters make the perfect trashcan for your car. 
 Medicine cabinets are NOT the safest place for medicine 
 You can flip a toaster on its side and grill cheese in it.
Still not 100%, weir stomach bug! I'm the only one in the house who caught it, makes me wonder if it's something I ate, or if it's going around? God is good all the time, love, Shirley
