1. Get out of having to make lunch every morning by freezing a batch of PB&J sandwiches ahead of time.

The sandwiches will keep for about four to six weeks, and be fully thawed and ready to eat by lunchtime. Learn more here.


9. You can also use the air conditioner to cool French fries to a kid-friendly temperature.

11. Keep your toddler entertained with little more than a colander and some pipe cleaners.

You could spend hours making one of those elaborate crafts on Pinterest, or you could throw this together in 30 seconds. The choice is yours.


15. Use a straw to remove a strawberry's stem in seconds.

23. Cook family-sized portions of oatmeal in your rice cooker.

This way you won't have to stand over the pot and watch it cook, which is huge when you've got little kids to run around after. Learn more here.


26. Put a command hook on the back of your baby's high chair so you never misplace a bib again.

27. Put two layers of fitted sheets (separated by puppy pads) on your kid's bed to make it easier to change their sheets in the middle of the night if they have an accident.
