Everyday Innovations by Ordinary Folks


When we think of innovations the first thing that comes to mind are our great inventors but ordinary folks do a lot of innovating and very few people give them credit. Here are a few examples of innovative ideas that my niece sent to me in an email. Just simple ideas but ones to make our lives much easier. I’ll bet you’ll find at least one a very useful idea.
