Works-For-Me Wednesday time again?! Wow, can't believe the a week has flown by so fast! Don't forget to head over there to check out the other great ideas.
Here's my simple little tip.
Did you know that you should replace your toothbrush every three months?
(OK, I know that there are some of you thinking....Every three months!? That's just a conspiracy to get us to buy more dental products. Yea, I was right there with you. Then I did a little math. If you go to the dentist every six months. And you should! You get a new brush then. So that leaves only two new toothbrushes a year to buy, for less than $5 total. Some of you spend that much on one Venti Venti Grande Caffefine-allatte at the Bucks place each day! Come on guys, you only have to brush the teeth you want to keep!)
But if you're like me, you can never remember when you got your last new toothbrush, so you just wait the six months until your next dentist appointment and use the spiffy new one you get then.
Try this: when you bring home a new toothbrush (for yourself or a family member), take out a Sharpie or other permanent marker and write on the handle the date it should be thrown away - three months from the day that you're writing.
No more guessing whether or not that brush has past it's prime. Works for Me!
Now don't forget you have an appointment over at Shannon's for more ideas that make you smile. And it won't hurt a bit!
