Household Hints - Save time, save money, save energy

Save all foil or wax paper margarine wrappers from the quarter-pound squares. Then, when making hamburger patties, use an ice cream scoop and scoop out hamburger onto each paper. Fold over and pat to desired thickness, Place on cookie sheet and quick freeze, then store in a plastic bag in the freezer.

Use safety pins to keep pairs of socks together in the wash, so that individual socks do not get lost. Leave the safety pins in while the socks dry (either in the dryer or on a clothesline.)
