Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

Tuesday Tip

How to Add an Hour to Your Day
Easy ways to streamline your daily routine:
It is possible to save up to an hour a day, if you cut out four daily time wasters says Jamie Novak, author of 1000 Best Quick and Easy Time-Saving Strategies.
  • Dozing Off

Most people hit the snooze button three times. Plug in your alarm clock across the room so you’re not tempted to sneak in extra shut eye. Time Saved: 21 minutes

  • Rooting Through Cosmetics

Group morning and evening makeup in separate clear bags. Now, when you want your neutral-colored lipstick, not your saucy-red evening shade, you’ll know just where it is. Time Saved: 10 minutes

  • Getting Caught in the Web ( I never do this!)

Minutes can turn into hours when you’re Googling. Set a timer, and when it goes off that’s it. Time saved: 40 minutes

  • Opening Mail

Speed up the process with a letter opener and don’t even bother with junk mail. Toss it straight into the recycling bin or shredder. Time saved: 6 minutes

That a great idea...to sort make-up. I have it in small baskets...in my drawer. However, it still gets all messed up. Thanks for the tip!

Great tips! I always say I don't have enough time. But, I do sit at the computer and read a lot of blogs before I want to start my day.
