Around the house
* Store out-of-season clothes easily. A clean, plastic garbage bag can be stored in attic, beneath bed, at the top of closets or in the basement. A bar of soap placed inside will keep garments sweet-smelling.
* Keep a baby food jar of paint on hand for touch-ups.
It the garden
* If there isn't a water spigot near the garden or tool shed, keep a roll of paper towels and a can of shaving cream nearby. You can clean your hands without water.
* Keep lawn well-watered. Lawn and gardens should get about an inch of water a week.
