Here's a random tip for you, which actually most of you probably already know, but anyway some may not.

When buying something and you get those annoying price labels stuck down on them --- okay if you are not Gifting/Present giving, but if you are it is best to remove said offending price label.  However, you know how nearly impossible some are to remove...

PLUS

I like to Reuse jiffy bags when they have been used to send you postal items.  Those labels are BIG sometimes....


So to save from tearing them off and
RUINING the item/envelope

JUST

USE YOUR HAIRDRYER



AND THE GLUE HOLDING DOWN THE LABEL

MELTS


Carefully remove and you have a

Jiffy bag to Reuse



Note: always keep in mind what you are heating up
with the hairdryer and be sensible.
