Hints and Tips Comp!

Good morning people!
Throughout the course of our lives, the people around us tell us all kinds of useful hints and tips. Many can indeed be brushed off as urban legends, but others are truly lifesavers, for example this morning I was making breakfast for mum, and I was a bit over enthusiastic with the salt, that’s when mum saved the day and said:
When you put too much salt in the food, throw in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess.
There you go! Next time you spill the salt into your food remember that tip and say thanks to my mum! Today’s competition is in much the same spirit of helping other people, but today we’ll be helping fellow catchers.

First Prize: Mystery Prize! In the words of Peter Griffin, ‘A boat’s a boat but a box could be anything! It could even be a boat!’. You never know what you’ll get with a mystery prize, but that’s what makes it better than a regular ‘prize’!.
How to enter: Simply post a useful tip or hint using this discuss link -HERE-, you may enter as many times as you like.
How to win? We will have two winner’s, one for the most INTERESTING tip and one for the most USEFUL tip, get cracking! Onto the stuff of the day…
