Plans for the Past

I found several of these pamplets in my Mother-in-laws stuff and fell in love with them.  This is one of my favorites.  I love that the utility room was large.  Living in a mobile home makes me want one of these even more.  A good use of space.  Some of the others are more adaptable to change.
 I will post more later.

my new favorite gadget

When I was cruising the aisles of the local Dollar Tree I saw this and thought it might be useful.  The package had one for the kitchen and one for the bathroom.  I am now realizing how handy it is.  It catches everything the strainer or colander misses.  I have emptied it several times and each time know how I wished I would have found it years ago.  It doesn't take much to get this old girl excited!!
