Out of the office and into the dining room

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | If you are looking for a dining room table, you are going to love today's first great reader tip. The only thing I'm wondering about this tip is why I never thought of it myself!


DINING ROOM TABLE. Instead of looking in furniture stores for an expensive dining room table, try checking office surplus stores or www.craigslist.org for "conference tables." Dining room tables of the correct size cost $1,200 or more, but when I looked for conference tables in the same style, they could be found for about $300. — H., e-mail


OPEN A JAR. When you need to open a tightly sealed jar, place a wide rubber band around the rim so that when you twist the lid, you can get a good grip on it. You can open the most stubborn lids with this technique. And if you can't find a wide rubber band, check your broccoli. Oftentimes broccoli comes with a wide rubber band that is perfect for the job. — Deborah B., New Hampshire


PRINTER INK. I have an inkjet printer, and whenever the warning pops up that my printer is low on ink, I take out the cartridge, shake it hard while holding it away from me and put it back in the printer. Then I'm ready for another couple of weeks' worth of printing. — Ruth E., e-mail


BASKET REINFORCEMENT. It seems that every laundry basket I buy ends up cracking or breaking at the handles. I decided to be smart with my latest one, so I took duct tape and wrapped the handles with it. It makes it easier to pick up, too. So far, the handles have not cracked. — Diana D., e-mail


CASH ORGANIZER. If you shop with cash to help keep you on budget, use a coupon organizer to keep your money separated when you are running multiple errands. You'll know how much cash you have for each errand instead of seeing one big lump sum. Label the sections for gas, groceries, gifts, etc. — Jessica H., Colorado
