Keeping with the food theme, how about a little help with a classic fall comfort food: mashed potatoes. Always a delicious side dish, here’s a time-saving trick for cleaning the skins off those potatoes – because who can’t use a little more time?

Now that we’re on the topic of cleaning things, how about the garage or shed?  This is one incredibly simple hack that’s great when it’s time to store your garden or yard work tools for the winter. While always fun to involve the kids during cleanup, we recommend hanging the rake high enough so that the prongs are outside their reach — always better to be safe than sorry!
