Handy Tips.

I suspect that we are all old enough to have meany tips to help us around the house or just generally.
Here are one or two of mine.

At work and fancy some cheese on toast but no Grill , but there is a toaster .
Simply lay the toaster on its side, hey presto ! you now have a grill.

WANT to know the time?
Simply go to Argos and buy yourself a cheap watch. Hey Presto! You'll find the time printed on the till receipt.

If you have an irritating cough take a large dose of laxatives, then you will be too afraid to cough.

If you cannot fix if with a hammer you probably have an electrical problem.

You only need two tools in life - WD- 40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Convince your friends you have a girlfriend by standing outside Top Shop for two hours with lots of shopping bags.

Re: Handy Tips.

Cats can be very costly in food and vets bills - save yourself a fortune by not having one, simply slash your furniture with a stanley knife and poop behind the couch.

Ensure that leftovers don't go off in the fridge by tossing them in the bin right after you've finished your dinner.

Re: Handy Tips.

I love Lattes and find ordinary coffee a bit flat these days Soooo, I bought a wee Milk Whisk, and now mix the milk and coffee in the mug together with the whisk, straight away add the boiling water, and you have a home made Latte, no fancy expensive machine to buy and tastes just as good. You could also use a glass Latte Mug to make it more original lol

Re: Handy Tips.

Olympic athletes. Disguise the fact that you've taken steroids by running a bit slower.

Smokers. Save on matches and lighters, by simply lighting your next fag from the butt of your last one.

Always keep a tissue in your pocket, in case you dribble.
