Easy Way To Wake Up In The Morning Involves A Cookie Tin Lid

For 20 years, Bruce Lubin and his wife Jeanne have been collecting tips and hints to save time, money, and make everyday tasks easier. Their book "Who Knew?"by TeleBrands includes thousands of money-saving secrets for cooking, cleaning, and all around your home. We are republishing a fabulous tip from the book on an easy way to help you wake up in the morning.

Saving money starts at home, and the tips in this section will give you simple ways to make your money go further both inside and outside your home. As you move from room to room, you'll discover how to affordably clean your home using all-natural, homemade cleaners; get rid of any kind of stain on the planet; organize like a whiz; keep your car at its best; and perform simple household repairs.

If "brrrring!!" isn't enough to wake you up anymore, maybe it's time to make your alarm even louder. Place it on a cookie tin lid, metal tray, or ceramic tile. The material will amplify the sound, creating a "BRRRRING!!" you can't ignore.
