Ladies of days gone by:
Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.

Women of today:
Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and drink. You might still have the headache, but who cares?

Ladies of days gone by:
Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.

Women of today:
Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake. You are probably lying on the couch, with your feet up, eating it anyway.

Ladies of days gone by:
To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.

Women of today:
Buy boxed mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry for up to a year.

------------

Ladies of days gone by:
When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.

Women of today:
Go to the bakery - they'll even decorate it for you.

------------

Ladies of days gone by:
Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.

Women of today:
Sara Lee frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites over the crust, so I just don't do it.
------------

Ladies of days gone by:
If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.

Women of today:
Go ask the very cute neighbour guy to do it.

------------

And finally the most important tip....

Ladies of days gone by:
Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.

Women of today:
Leftover wine???
