One of my dads first
priorities was ta make sure all us kids had
plenty ta eat. We always did too. I know, cause
ever time Id ask for seconds, Dad
d say, "Nope, youve had
One a the problems with
priorities is that everone has em,
just some folks wont admit it. Thats
when things get confusin. It makes it a lot
easier if things are laid out on the table for
all ta know what youre up to.
Its like followin
someone that keeps hittin the breaks ever
time a car comes from the other direction. After
a while ya start ta understand youve got a
nervous nellie drivin in front of ya. Ya
back off a little ta give em plenty of
room, then ya pass em and get as far away
from em as you can.
Its likely your
priorities include gettin where your
goin as quickly as ya can.
This is some fact, but mostly,

"I really abhor bar soap, but my
husband prefers it. After cleaning the soap dish,
I smear it with petroleum jelly. I do the
underside too. Theres a little lip that
will keep the soap from sliding off, but the
petroleum jelly keeps the inevitable sludge from
sticking to the soap dish, making my cleaning
routine much easier!" -- A.D. in Idaho
"I make my own little
good-behavior coupons for my three children. I
print them on different colors of paper for each
child. They can cash in coupons for activities or
rewards, and if they go in together to get
something, I will give them bonus coupons for
working together. I think this has made
goal-setting a priority for them, and it has
helped them learn the lesson of shared goals --
an important one for a large family." --
R.V.F. in Arizona
"When I go to the grocery
store, I put my wallet in my pocket, then as I
move through the store and determine which
coupons I will be able to use, I put them in my
wallet pocket. Since I have started doing this, I
have not accidentally forgotten to use my
coupons. They are there in my pocket when I am
ready to pay." -- O.B. in Indiana
To keep dirt from sticking to
your dustpan, try spraying it lightly with
furniture polish. Buff slightly and floor dirt
will slide right off.
"I found a small waste
basket that fits right between the wall and my
dryer. Theres a gap thats about 8
inches wide. The lip of the basket keeps it from
sliding down to the floor, so its easy to
clean out the lint trap and put the waste in the
basket. Also, I used a strip of hook-and-loop
tape to attach a tissue holder box vertically to
the wall. I stick a box of fabric softener sheets
in it, and they, too, are right where I need
them." -- T.K. in Nevada
