Parent Hacks Weekend Catchup: highlights from the week of 2/14/11
For the time-challenged among us (which would be ALL of us), here are the highlights from the last week at Parent Hacks. It was a good one:
Amazon Mom gets you cheap diapers and 3 months of Amazon Prime: This is a biggie, in terms of money savings and convenience. Check it out.
Hack request: Caring for your kid's hair: A super-hackworthy topic. Share your tips!
Dental floss container as yarn cutter: Knitters and crocheters rejoice!
"Snag-free" hairbands still pull? Use cheap ones, then clip them off: Pain-free ponytails. Lots of great comments.
Hairband storage solution: a wine rack: one clever method among many.
No closet in baby's room? Hack an IKEA Expedit bookshelf: Another brilliant IKEA Hacker idea.
Book light lets baby sleep through nighttime diaper changes: Although, according to comments/Twitter/Facebook, not everybody changes their babies at night...
No-fuss birthday cake decoration: Mr. Potato Head parts: PHers loved this one.
Take notes in the shower with bathtub crayon: Squeaky-clean productivity.
Roll cookie dough out inside a Ziploc bag: For the rolling-pin challenged.
Homemade storage solution for dress-up clothes: Lots of folks loved this idea.
How Facebook and Twitter are broadening the conversation at Parent Hacks: Would love to hear your thoughts on this.
Built-in potty seat: good for butts of all sizes: EVERY TOILET NEEDS ONE OF THESE. SRSLY.
Make a cell phone charm with Shrinky Dinks, Sharpies and dental floss: From my darling Valentine.
Plus lots of useful (often hilarious) conversation on Twitter and Facebook, and quick-turnaround Amazon deals I only post there. Don't miss a minute of it! Follow @parenthacks on Twitter, and "like" the Parent Hacks Facebook page (different stuff happens in each place).
