Labour Saving?

This week I've been trying, in between doing 'proper' things, to get some semblance of order into the Study and the Utility Room (actually it's more like a Utility Cupboard with a door at each end and a passage through the middle). Both of which contain far too much despite my efforts last year to de-clutter. One of the things that struck me as I tried to find lids for and stack all the plastic food boxes awaiting food was that that particular part of the cupboard had a bag in it. A bag that had been there for many years. As I poised before I threw it out I realised that it was a bag of bags: bags for holding water in such a way as to make ice cubes - well, ice balls actually. "What a good idea" I thought so I decided to use them. Hmm. Perhaps filling a bag with water and then trying to tie a knot in the top isn't quite as easy as just filling the ice-cube tray. Ah well, only another nineteen bags to go.

  1. I think these are brilliant and so easy to use that a twenty year old boy can do it! They save all that spilled water in the freezer when you have trays of water freezing to make cubes.
