Do you have an insulated cooler taking up space in the garage or utility room?  Store it in the trunk of the car instead.   When you buy perishables like dairy, meat or frozen foods at the grocery, have them bagged together  separately.  Then place in the cooler until you can get home with them. 

Save twist ties and the little square plastic closers from bread wrappers and similar packages.  They're handy when you use just part of a bag of frozen goods or other items packed in a plastic bag.

You can temporarily hide lots of chips and scratches on furniture, fixtures or appliances with things you have around the house.  Use white-out on chips or scratches on the refrigerator, for instance.  Black or other colored felt-tip permanent markers hide a lot of tiny defects, too, especially when company is coming.
