Maybe you've all heard this one before but my son showed me this trick (once again - he is smarter than me!).  If you need fresh lemon juice for a recipe, you can microwave the lemon for 15 seconds and the lemon is much softer to squeeze and you get way more juice.  I used to roll it on the counter and that helped a little, but I am getting arthritis in my hands and it was still tough to squeeze.  I know I was wasting juice.  I made a lemon pie yesterday and needed 1 cup of fresh lemon juice.  Microwaving them made it so much easier and I only used 6 lemons.

I also use a fork to ream it out. I don't have a lemon juicer so I just scrape around it with a fork and it really gets the maximum juice and pulp out of the lemon.  Of course you have to strain out the seeds too.
