These are simple. You might already be using them, but for those who aren't aware of these little mama lifesaving hacks, pack them away for later. I use them every time and they are tried and true.
Filling Muffin Tins + How many times have you filled your muffin tins only to drip the batter all over the place? You lose batter and that which gets on the top of the tin is a bear to clean off once it is baked. I found several years ago that using an ice cream scoop works so well with filling the cups with muffin batter. I get the same amount of batter in each cup and it doesn't spill out as I'm transporting the batter from the bowl to the tin.
Cutting an Avocado + My love for the green fruit runs deep. I eat avocados all the time- just ask my kids. I put them in tacos, breakfast burritos, or mix them with salsa/pico to eat with chips. The hardest part is getting them out of their skins and chopping them. This is the easiest way to chop an avocado. Cut your fruit in half. Then, while the avocado is still in the skin, slice it into small squares. After that is done, gently squeeze the flesh into the bowl you are using! It is that easy. Your hands don't get dirty and you get all the flesh out quickly and easily!
Cleaning Bathroom Counters + When I get ready in the mornings, I tend to leave a trail of mineral makeup behind me. I really cannot stand messy bathroom counters or the film that sticks to them after I use hair products. One way I have cut corners with cleaning my counters is by using my washcloth from the night before. I use a (separate) wash cloth to clean my face, so when I'm finished with it and after I've applied my makeup, I use it to wipe down our counters and sinks. It's nice to have it clean and not actually have to overhaul the bathroom. I also do this with kitchen rags when I throw them in the washing machine. I quickly wipe down the washer and dryer tops so they are dust and detergent free! It just makes it look nicer.
