Fend off unwanted fliers

Recycle your wipes container and use it for unwanted flyers in your paper box. It works great! We all win: no more extra flyers to throw away and the box stays paperless! Carol Fay, Mint Hill

Clearly, this bag controls clutter

To prevent clutter in my medicine cabinet and under the sink cabinet in my bathroom, I have hung a clear see-through shoe bag on the back of my bathroom closet door. In the many pockets I can store things like Ace bandages, extra tubes of various items like muscle rubs, shampoo bottles, etc. The best part is finding anything I need at a glance and no more clutter!
