Find of the Week:

This plastic side table folds into a neat little rectangle for storage. It was originally made for Target but is now being sold at Dollarama for $3. The table measures about 9 1/2-inches in height and is approximately 17-inches long and 14 1/2-inches wide. It's not the same height as a regular side table but could be just the thing to take on a camping trip.

Quick Tip:

Okay, so I'm a bit obsessive-compulsive when it comes to keeping all my kitchen sets in their respective sets so, when the plastic ring that came with these measuring spoons broke, I knew I wanted a replacement. The round metal shower curtain rings I found at Dollarama open and close even easier than the original plastic closure did so, using one to keep my measuring spoons from wandering all over the drawer proved the perfect solution for calming my separation anxiety.

Most kids love stickers and kids grow into adults who still like to play with stickers. Only, instead of Disney princesses and super heroes, our tastes run more to decorative themes. 

Colorful stickers, whether intended for scrapbooking or to decorate laptops and walls, can also be used in other ways. Make your possessions stand out from the ordinary by stamping your own personality onto them using the stickers you can find in dollar stores. Here are some suggestions.
