Myers: Maybe what you really need is right in front of you

Thompson: Find a new use for your credit cards

Do you love brownies? Then this tip is for you. Rather than trying to cut your brownies with a knife, use an old credit card instead. A knife will usually mess up the brownies when you drag it through the pan. With the credit card, you simply push it down into the brownies - don't drag it. Just make sure that you clean the credit card before using it.

Question: My 4-year-old son is not fully engaged when he has a friend over for a play date. His twin sister makes friends easily and the difference between them is glaring.
