    Default Some brilliant ideas!

    By brilliant, I mean BRILLIANT!

    I'm sure some of the more resourceful amongst us have used many of these hints/tips/ideas before, but some really amazed me.

    These are some useful tricks - StumbleUpon

    Not sure about the remote/velcro one, but the rest...

    Practise makes us a little better, it doesn't make us perfect.


    What would Vedder do?

    I love this stuff.

    May I add mine? (probably only useful for those who can sew, but an old dog can always learn new tricks).

    Brilliant idea - my ski jacket has something similar.

    Yep, that's where I got the idea, from a ski jacket. I saw one in the back-of-the-neck lining too, a great hidey place for cash if you're touristing. I love pockets: women's clothes never have enough.

    It's why I love my 3/4 lengths - the pockets on the thigh are a great place to put my phone/wallet. Virtually impossible to be pick-pocketed.

    Great work making the zip/pocket yourself though!

    Those are brilliant tips!

    Wish we could get Toll House chips over here without paying a small fortune for them. And bread tags...we have those stoopid bits of tape instead.

    Those ideas are so simple you kinda feel a bit thick for not thinking of them yourself......

    I don't need any help feeling thick!

    For example, the bread tags - I had plumb forgotten that we don't have them any more!

    What are Toll House chips?

    I think we all need to move away from the idea of buying a gadget which will do a specific job, when something ( perhaps a bit less pretty or Blue Peterish) will do the job just as well!

    It's not an indication we can't afford the 'real thing' but that we are recycling.
    Those ideas are just fantastic!

    Have to say that I REALLY love the tennis ball towel holder!!
