Many great inventions have resulted from really simple ideas. Some so simple, that you have to wonder why it took so long for someone to come up with the idea. You may even at times wonder why you did not come up with the idea yourself. While most (almost all) of us do not become famous for our ideas, we never the less all probably do come up with some useful ideas over our life times. Sharing these ideas with others, should contribute significantly to, "A better life for all".

On this page I would like to share some of the ideas I have come up with over time, that have made something, or some process, better, easier, simpler, faster, cheaper, or whatever. Hopefully these ideas will also prove to be useful to someone else as well. Naturally I would also welcome and acknowledge contributions and / or corrections and suggestions that would lead to improvements in the ideas listed here. While the idea for this page came about before I discovered the book, The World's Greatest Idea: The Fifty Greatest Ideas That Have Changed Humanity, it would be remiss of me not to recommend it to you.


The first two "Handy Hints" are dedicated to my two sons-in-law, and celebrate the two very good ideas I picked up from them.

If you are viewing this page and know of a "Handy Hint" that is not already described, you are encouraged to submit your "Handy Hint". Also do not feel you should restrict yourself to a single hint. If you feel you can improve an already described Handy Hint", please communicate your improvement.
