Today’s tip is a simple repurposing tip, but it comes in very handy in our house!
We have lots of high-up cabinets in our kitchen wherein we store things that are used only once-in-a-while. And when it comes to having to retrieve one of those items, I get so annoyed at the thought of having to drag over a chair — or worse — a step ladder to reach what I need. No need to tell me I’m lazy — I’m aware, thanks. Most of the time, I can simply use a pair of kitchen tongs to get down an item from a high shelf without climbing to get it.
Kitchen tongs also work well to fish out cars, balls and other small toys from underneath the stove and the couch.
