{try this} soothe tired & puffy eyes

I love finding tips and tricks that make life just a little easier!  Like how to extend the length of a necklace or how to make quick DIY cake plates … you know, just the essentials, ha ha!  In fact, I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to great ideas & good to know!  

This tip literally fell in my lap …

I was at my friend Holly’s house a few weekends ago and when I opened her freezer to grab some ice, a teaspoon fell out.  She caught it and set it back in her freezer.  Huh?  “Why do you have a spoon in your freezer?”

Notice my spoon is tucked in my freezer by two of my favorite things:  Thin Mints and frozen berries!

As a teacher (of the year – awww yeah!) who is getting her Masters degree and nurturing a long distance relationship, Holly is pulling some serious all-nighters.  She told me if you wake up to tired, puffy eyes, gently place the cold spoon over your closed eye to relieve the puffiness!  (And don’t worry, I’ve tested this and there won’t be any “tongue stuck to the telephone pole” sort of issues, ha ha.)

What do you think?  Have you heard of this?  Is your silverware drawer going to be missing a spoon soon?  

Here are a few more of my favorite tips and tricks:
