Today's Friday Favorite comes from the Blog: 

Yup, that's right, 101 Tips.  Just for you!

Who is the amazing person who took had the time and effort to compile this list? Her name is Jamie and her blog, DIY Home Sweet Home, brings us this collection of tips.  

I so appreciate the people who take the time to share thoughtful and smart ideas. I am always on the hunt for useful and practical tips, anything that can simplify my life is immediately bookmarked and printed.  I'm a huge 'tip geek'.

Here some of my favorites:

# 1 If you have ever had to give eye drops to a small child, you know how hard it can be. Ask you child to lay down and close his/her eyes. Place a small drop on the inside corner of the eye. The drop will slip onto the eye ball as soon as the child opens their eyes.

# 9 When making deviled eggs, place the egg yolks in a plastic Ziploc bag with the rest of the ingredients. Close the bag and mash everything together. Once everything is well mixed cut off a small tip from one of the bottom corners of the bag and squeeze the contents into your egg white. Just too the bag once you are done for easy cleanup.

# 17 For picture frames with two holes, hang them evenly and easily by placing a single strip of masking tape over the back covering the two holes. Mark each end of the tape where the holes are located for hanging the frame. Take the tape off and place it on your wall. Make sure it is level then hammer a nail in at each pen mark. Go to Adventures in Creating for the entire step by step tutorial.

# 20 Tired of washing dishes all day, or getting blamed for tossing a drink that a family member was still drinking? Try this tip from Bee in our Bonnet. Make a coaster tray and assign a coaster to each family member. When they are done with their drink they set in on the coaster until they need it again.

# 24 Use Press'n Seal saran wrap to line your refrigerator shelves. When the shelves get dirty, just remove the wrap, toss in the trash and replace. No more scrubbing nasty food spills.  I'm doing this one this weekend!

# 28 Stick old newspaper or magazines inside your boots when you store them. This will keep the tops from flopping over and adding unsightly creases to your boots. Found at IHeart Organizing.

# 31 Toss small items such as baby spoons, pacifiers and bottle caps inside a small mesh lingerie bag and set the bag in the top rack of your dishwasher. This will keep things from falling off the rack and getting lost or ruined in the bottom on the dishwasher.

# 33 Create a tight seal on any plastic bag using a plastic water bottle. Also makes it super easy to poor out your next serving.

# 46 Need to hang a picture but there is nothing on the back to hang it from? Once you are done with your soda, turn the tab around. Using a pair of pliers grab the bottom (short end) of the tab and bend the tab down into the mouth of the can while pulling up at the same time. This will ensure that the ring is still intact so that you can attach it to the back of your frame with a screw and hang your photo.

# 49 Need to light a hard to reach candle but don't have any long matches? Use a piece of uncooked spaghetti. 

# 66 Use soda can tabs to keep your outfits together

# 77 Spraying Rain-X on your shower doors will make the water bounce right off and reduce build-up.

# 88 Pour water into a mason jar and add a glow stick. Place jars around pools, patios, or sidewalks during you next late night get together.

# 96 Stick your straw through a cupcake liner to keep bugs, dirt and other icky things from falling in your drink.

Some pretty useful info wouldn't you say? 

What are your fav's?
