Find of the Week:
A salad spinner is a handy
thing to have in the kitchen but there's no need to spend more
than four bucks for one, as my recent purchase from Dollarama
proves. It's dishwasher safe and you can choose from different-coloured
lids. The inner basket may be a bit flimsier than a more
expensive spinner but, on the whole, it works great.

Arrange different shapes of
cork trivets on a wall to create an outside-the-box message centre.
Trivets are thicker than the usual cork board so you can be sure
push pins won't scratch walls. You can use 3M Comand strips or picture-hanging squares
to adhere the cork to the wall.
The embellishments are 3D
stickers also found at the dollar store. I'm always surprised by
how many surfaces stickers will adhere to.
