Look for the bargains this way

Grocery and other stores put lower priced items at the very bottom or sometimes at the very top, in hopes that you won't notice them and you'll buy the higher priced items at more comfortable levels. Fool them. Check the prices in that hard to see and reach areas!

Reusing ribbon

You can iron ribbon of all kinds. Use a low or very low setting for most of them and wind them on cardboard tubes from toilet tissue. It will look like new. Some quality ribbon made of cloth can even be washed and then ironed.
