Rotation, rotation, rotation.

I'll save you the image on this tip! If you want your bra to last longer, do not wear it 2 days in a row. At the end of the day, put your clean bra in the back of your drawer. The one that is in the front is the one ready to be worn. Bras stretch. If you give your bra at least 24 hours to "rest" it allows the elastic in the bra to recover so the bra retains it's shape and elasticity. And don't wash your bra just because you don't want to put it away! It is very delicate. And when the bra stretches to the point it fits on the innermost "rung", it's time to go bra shopping.

Phone Face Planting?

This tip is for fellow Android phone users who, like me, are constantly muting calls and ending calls because the phone was pressed against your face.  There is an app for that: Screen Suite

If you install Screen Suite from the Android Market, the app will (using default settings) require a slide to unlock the phone when on a call.

No more random-awkward-silenced-conversations!  And if your friend has a Droid, Evo, G2, etc., please pass this tip along.  :)

Waterproof "Gloves"

If you live where it snows often, you probably already have waterproof gloves for everyone in your family. For those of us who are less prepared, this tip my friend shared may come in handy:

Before your kiddos head out in the white stuff, cover each glove with a plastic food storage bag. Secure it with a rubber band or hair band and you've created a waterproof seal. You may have just prevented a complete meltdown at the door ten minutes from now!
