Handy. Creative. Useful. And AFFORDABLE! That’s what ran through my mind as I was going through the items on this list of clever inventions. Oh, and cute! Nothing bulky, ugly, or awkward made the list. The clever inventions on this list will have you thinking one of two things: Why didn’t I think of that? OR Boy, do I need one of the those!
No more envying your neighbor’s perfect fruit displays! No more wondering where did she find that darling solar lantern! I’m giving you the inside scoop (pun intended) on all the cool tools-like easy melon ballers, flexible candle lighters, and re-useable notebooks. Now these aren’t your granny’s kitchen tools, these are creative cute inventions with a twist and you’ll question how you lived without them!
I bet your friend who has everything doesn’t have these clever inventions (0r she beat you to my list)! So grab one for you and throw one in the cart for her, too.

Keep couches clean and snacks handy
No matter how many times I ban eating in the living room, my family always does it anyway. To safe my sanity (and my couch from crumbs and spills), I ordered these slide on bamboo couch trays. The family gets to eat their snacks and I don’t have to hoover the couch–as often.
