I think there’s a good chance that every mom in America is already doing what I’m about to tell you, and you’re all going to look at me and wonder, "Does she really think that’s innovative?," and in fact no, I do not, but I’m tired and temporarily running out of WFMW tips so I’ll go ahead and tell you anyway.
We keep all the kids’ DVDs in a regular CD case. This keeps them from scattering the plastic DVD jackets all over the living room when they’re looking for a particular disc. It’s also quite handy when we’re leaving on a long car trip. We can grab the whole DVD collection and dash.
So, here’s hoping that your tip is considerably more creative than mine–link away, below! Guidelines for WFMW can be found here.
(Oh, and by the way, last week the overwhelming majority of you thought that we should have a mix of "themed" WFMWs mixed in with the "free-for-all" version. So here’s the plan: from now on the FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH will be a themed variety. I’ll give you plenty of notice what the theme is, don’t worry. Speaking of which, if you have any brilliant theme ideas, e-mail me at the address on my sidebar. Remember, we need to keep the theme fairly broad and appealing to a large group of people. For example, something relating only to parents of preschoolers, or vegetarians, or lactose-intolerant astronauts, or claustrophobic Swedes might be a tad too specific.)
