Little steps equal big progress.

1. Make a lost sock jar for your laundry room.

Adorable Harry Potter theme optional. When you find a lonely sock, check and see if its mate is living in the jar (and put it in the jar if not). Read more and get the "Save Dobby" tutorial here.


4. When you're doing work or studying, try out the Pomodoro time management technique.

It's simple: you set a timer for 25 minutes, focus up and work, then when the timer dings, you take a 5 minute break. Repeat four times, then take a longer 20 to 30 minute break and start over. You can learn more about it here, and use Tomato Timer to keep yourself on track.

6. Turn an empty coffee can or food container into a stylish bag dispenser.

This is great to keep in the car, just in case you find yourself in dire need of a plastic bag. (You'd be surprised.) Here's the tutorial.

7. Motivate your kids through all through the summer with these magnetic to-do lists.

Here's how to make them. They're re-useable each day, and the kids can be responsible for checking off their own chores.
