I find downloading into Adobe is so much better. Like you I staple the receipts to the hard copy of the manual. Then at the end of the Adobe download, I type in the info from the receipt.

During my working days, I found that folks are so afraid of making a mistake, that they did nothing when they found something amiss. Whereas I would just jump in, correct it and if it was wrong, someone would let me know. Thus you saw a problem with work related manuals and took it upon yourself to take charge. Congratulations on a job well done.

By the way, I was wondering if the mods have considered adding a separate forum area for topics like this. A Household Tips and Hints forum section. I would think such a forum area here would get lots of hits.

Storing "Bagged" Items

Got this great tip from a Facebook group I joined, ironically it came right after I was trying to find a good way to store leftover strawberry glaze!

I love this tip. I've known about it and used it for a long, long time. It has zillions of applications.

I put the dishcloth and the sink strainers in the dishwasher every night (or every other night--depends on whether or not I run the dishwasher). Freshens the dishcloth and cleans the strainers. A friend's dad put his hubcaps in the dishwasher....
