    I have a packet of chopsticks that (individually) get used for all sorts of things, though I use a fork for eating Chinese food! Here are just a few -

    Mini rolling pin for icing

    I use two chopstick to roll pastry dough the perfect thickness. Place a stick at each side of the dough and roll. Impossible to roll it too thin because of the thickness of the chopsticks

    aims for 2014 - grow more fruit and veg, declutter

    I saw in a gardening magazine, tin cans used as a nice feature area of potted plants - they were in a bed of shingle. It looked really good but it would be better with larger cans rather than all baked bean size. x
    I must remember that "Money Saving" is not buying heavily discounted items that I do not need. :hello:
