How can

we make life easier ?

Its called . . . “LIFE HACKS”.

They are quick, easy to do, low cost and save you time.

Life hacks actually do make life a little bit easier, believe it

or not.

 

Don’t you hate it when . . .

Your phone charger starts wearing a “turtleneck” ?  You know it’s the end.  Instead of wasting money on another charger, you can simply make yours last longer.  Here’s how you do it . . . take apart an old pen and use the spring that is inside of the pen to wrap around the top of your charger.  You have just extended the life of your charger !!

Don’t you hate it when . . .

You like to listen to loud music, but don’t have a speaker to do so ? All you have to do is get a toilet paper roll, cut a slit in it to fit your phone, add two tacks to help it stay steady and you’re good to go. Now although it won’t be as loud as a regular speaker, it should hold you down until you get a real one.

Don’t you hate it when . . .

All of your wires get tangled up together ? Well to solve this problem, take a few more toilet paper rolls and put the cable cords neatly inside of them, then just organize the rolls inside of a shoebox. This should keep your wires untangled, organized and easy to find.

Isn’t it so frustrating when you drop the back piece of an earring of something small in general? Well there’s no need to worry. All you have to do is attach a pair of pantyhose to a vacuum, and then search in the area the object fell, and there you go.

Don’t you hate it when . . .

Your luggage looks just like everyone else’s luggage ?  Tie a small piece of bright colored fabric or curly party ribbon to the handle.  This will save you a lot of time at the turn-style, so you don’t have to keep checking if a bag is yours.

Don’t you hate it when . . .

Your jewelry gets tangled up together, especially when you travel ? Well there is a solution to that irritating and unbelievably frustrating situation. What you need is a plastic straw and the jewelry you may be traveling with, that’s it. Then you unclip the back of your necklace, slip the string through one end of the straw and out the other end, next you clip your necklace back together and that’s all there is to it.

Don’t you hate it when . . .

You wake up in the morning with “no more” tooth paste. So you have to try and squeeze the tooth paste out of the tube, and if that doesn’t work then you have to take the top off. That’s a lot of work. When all you have to do is borrow one of your chip bag clips and place it on the tooth paste tube and you’ve got a little more tooth paste to last you till you get a new one.

Don’t you hate it when . . .

Your (or someone else’s) feet stink ? Especially when you have to take your shoes off at a friend’s house or even just to your socks. Well, to make this stinky problem go away all you have to do is stick some dryer sheets under the soles of your shoes. From now on you’re safe to take off your shoes whenever you feel like it.

PART 2

Don’t you hate it when . . .

Are you a heavy sleeper? Are you always having trouble getting up even when you have your alarm on? Well no need to worry anymore, there is a life hack that can help.

What may help is having a glass cup on your night stand, or somewhere near where you sleep. Once you have your glass cup, set your alarm for the time you’re going to wake up. Once you’ve done that pick a ringtone or song that you think will be loud enough to wake you up and put your volume all the way up. Then place your phone in the glass cup before you go to bed. This should amplify the sound.

When people enter your room do they tend to say “your room stinks”? Especially your moms? Well instead of breathing in all the fumes from air fresheners, there is another way to prevent people from talking about how bad your room may smell.

To keep your house/room smelling nice and fresh all you have to do is tape a couple dryer sheets to any air conditioner you have in your household. If you don’t have any air conditioners, then anything ventilating your house should be fine.

Examples: plug in fans, ceiling fans, windows, etc…

Not only does some people’s room smell but also their shoes. But there is no need to fear taking your shoes of with this hack.

All you do is take a dry tea bag and insert it into your shoes and the tea bag should absorb the bad odor.

Is your shampoo not working the magic on your hair you want it too? Are you not seeing any good results in your hair? Such as stronger hair, less split ends, and no more dandruff? Well here’s something to add into your shampoo to get most of the results you’ve been looking for.

Vodka!! Yes I know this comes as a surprise to you but vodka can do more than just get you drunk. Now instead of enjoying drinking it, you can enjoy washing your hair with it. All you do is add the vodka to your shampoo shake it up a bit and you’ll have strong hair, prevent dry scalp and no dandruff in no time.

Don’t you hate it when . . .

You’re doing something important on your laptop/computer and you accidentally close the tab? Or your evil siblings close it while you’re not looking? Well there is no need to feel like you have to redo everything because there is something that will help.

Once you’ve noticed that the website you were on is gone hit the buttons ctrl+shift+T and whatever you were doing should come back. You’re welcome because this might have just saved your life.

Check back periodically to see what new life hacks get added to this list.  Life hacks aren’t easy to come by and often surface at the most unexpected moments because you needed to figure a way to fix something that went wrong.  PLEASE feel free to share your own ideas/inspirations.  Leave all information in Miss Lotito’s mailbox in the Main Office, including your name so we can give you credit.
