Around the house

* Freeze bits of leftovers that are too small to make a meal. At the end of the week, you can toss them into a pot of soup.

* Wash out zip-top bags after using. They can be used several times before wearing out.

* Remove price stickers from small items and new car windows. Saturate label with white vinegar and let sit; scrape off with a credit card.

* Cut soap residue on glass shower doors. Before scrubbing, rub half a lemon onto surface, or spray door with vinegar.

* Remove white water rings from wooden tables. Rub spots with an equal amount of toothpaste and baking soda on a damp cotton cloth. When the white ring disappears, buff with a dry cotton cloth.

* Recycle foam egg cartons. Cartons can be used to make ice cubes or as containers for storing frozen meatballs.

In the garden

* Study seed catalogs to determine what you will plant for this spring's garden.
