I LOVE it when you can use things for other purposes than they were intended for.
Here’s one for ya…..
My mom’s always a nervous wreck when the grandkids are at her house because she’s constantly worried that they’re going to slam their sweet little fingers in her doors. (They actually do love slamming her sliding patio door with enormous force and a few of them have pinched their chubby little digits – BUT NO MORE haha!)
I saw these genius door stopper / finger guards at Toys R us. But they’re 7 bucks plus shipping!!! GEEZ! So, I thought, there has to be another way.
Enter the pool noodle.
They are 1 dollar at the Dollar Tree. And you can make about 30 door stoppers! How’s that for a deal? 🙂 Not that you would need that many, but still.
Just cut a few inches off of your noodle.
Then cut through the center.
And lastly just pop it on any door you want.
Waalaa. Done and done. It’s a “good thing.”
(I think Martha should totally have me on!) 🙂
