dont know if this has been done before so excuse me if it has
(no guys it says tiPs) LOL
i thought we could all share our time saving/ money saving handy tips
and tricks we use to make our lives simpler/ less expensive
i will start the ball rolling with my fav tip

cleaning the shelving in your oven/ or BBQ shelves
have you ever spent hours scrubbing away at the oven shelves
making your fingers sore and arms ache?
try this works like magic

run a hot shallow bath
add some bio washing powder/tablets (throw in a dishwasher tab as well if you want)
dump all the removable bits from your oven into it and go relax!
come back 2/3 hours later (or overnight if you prefer)
and simply wipe off the grime! No scrubbing involved
(for really bad cases do a second time)
rinse them over with shower and dry on and old towel!

anyone else got a handy tip to share?

I usually find that sparking up the barbie and letting the charcoal burn for 20-30 mins before cooking burns off all the crud I was too lazy to clean off the last time I used it :-D

LOL, it's like when you mow the lawn, don't bother cleaning the lawnmower after as the dried grass will simply fall off next time you use it:thumbsup:

Time is really helpful 'innit :-D

Sticking the oven/bbq shelves in the dishwasher also works really well.

i always keep a bottle of cheapo value shampoo handy ( the 20p a bottle type)

when times are tight i use it to clean the bathroom/ floors ect
works well and leaves a nice smell

ThWhen I order from Tesco Direct I make the order up to £25 so I get free delivery and generally collect from store, when I collect it a get a refund on the items I didn't want.

Yes:)

"No one knows exactly why sugar may help hiccups," says Marla Tobin, M.D., a family physician in private practice in Higginsville, Missouri. "Some doctors speculate that the granules stimulate the vagus nerve, a long nerve in the back of the throat that sends branches to many muscle groups, including those in the diaphragm."

If you run out of sink cleaner - pepsi or coca-cola is a suitable alternative

true

Make all your sanwiches for work at the same time, as you have all the stuff out, then freeze them, take out and to work by dinner (lunch to you south of Watford gap) they are ready to eat.
