Around the house
* Buttons that have been sewn on with elastic thread are ideal for people with limited dexterity. Buttons can be grasped more easily and garment may not need to be unbuttoned at all.
* Avoid cluttering a drawer with scarves. Thread through holes been punched into the paper that covers wire hangers.
* Store electric cords in cardboard cylinders saved from paper towels or kitchen wraps to avoid tangling when placed in drawers or on shelves.
In the garden
* Scrub flower pots and containers thoroughly before storing for the winter. Clean pots will discourage disease and insects. Save shards from broken pots to place in the bottoms of other plant containers to provide adequate drainage.
