Hints From Heloise

King Features Syndicate

Dear Heloise: When I go food shopping, I could use another hand to hold the coupons. Since the good Lord only gave me two hands, I came up with this idea.

I pick up a bunch of bananas and put them in my cart. Each time I see I have a coupon I need, I put it in the “fingers” of the bananas.

When I’m ready to check out, I take my coupons out and also buy the bananas. - Estelle Levitas, Baltimore

Dear Heloise: Since women’s clothing has had shoulder pads for the past few years and many of us do not care for them, here is a suggestion for their use. To keep my shoes from wrinkling in the toes, I have always stuffed them with paper to keep them straight. Now I have found the perfect replacement for paper - shoulder pads. - Ann T. Lane, Bergenfield, N.J.
