43 Days til Christmas!
I was in a store yesterday that had a big sign posted saying "43 Days Til Christmas!" Yikes! The shopping frenzy has begun! But if you're not excited about spending more gas money, trying to find the right shopping mall (or a parking place for that matter!) you may want to consider purchasing on-line this year. It's quite safe and extremely convenient.

And if you're not even thinking about Christmas shopping yet because you're overcome with grief that you just ruined your last good nylon stockings, then I have something for you too! Gee, talk about really STRETCHING that dollar....Check out these creative uses for nylons:
1. Cut off the nylon leg that has a snag, rip, or tear. Save the good leg to use as a one-legger. Two one-legger nylons makes one good pair of hosiery.
Just make certain you are wearing two of the same shade. Hey, I didn't say these were classy tips, just creative!
2. Once those one-leggers have rips in them save them for homemade stuffing of toys or even pillows.
3. Use nylons to make the head on a homemade doll or puppet.
4. Nylons make a great buffing material for shoes. My husband uses them all the time to buff his dress shoes.
5. Put shoes inside one-leggers to protect shoes while traveling.
6. Store onions in them. You can tie a knot between each onion. When you need an onion, just snip one off the bottom.
7. Cut the nylon into strips and use to tie tomato stalks to stakes.
8. Instead of throwing out small soap scraps or slivers, toss them into a nylon leg. After accumulating these you have a great soap scrubber for the shower.
9. If you don’t want to wait until you have enough soap slivers, take a bar of soap and place it into the nylon leg. Tie a knot in the nylon on either side of the soap bar leaving a little extra nylon on both sides to hold onto while in the bath or shower. If you leave a long enough nylon "handle," you can even use the scrubber on your back.
10. To solve the problem of children washing their muddy hands inside, place some soap in an old nylon and tie it around faucets outside in your yard.
You can now wash your hands after gardening, walking the dog, and playing or working outside.
11. Cut your nylons into small pieces. These work great with nail polish remover to clean your nails.
I know, now you all want to race to your nylon drawers and start cutting
them up. ark
Have a great week and be good to each other out there!
