1. Label the outfits for the week.
One of the hardest decisions we face every day is picking out our clothes and those for our kids. Studies reveal that women typically spend 15 minutes every day choosing what to wear. Skip the morning hassle, label the clothes for the week to come, and you are good to go!
2. Customize your water bottle to drink more water.
Keeping the body well-hydrated is one of the most advised tips for a healthy body. At the same time, more than 75% of Americans suffer from dehydration. Be reminded to drink your dose of aqua at regular intervals with this hack — labels customized according to the time.
3. Keep wires tangle-free with spirals.
Save your wires from going haywire by upcycling these spirals — a simple solution to the entangled mess.
4. Make a White Board clock for appointments.
This handy innovation is perfect for people who keep forgetting meeting times and are usually running late. Write your appointments on the clock and never miss one or be late again.
5. Use a shoe holder to organize everything.
Organize almost anything in your home or office — like cleaning supplies, stationary, spices, clothing, or jewelry. These can be hung anywhere on the backs of doors or behind cabinets.
6. Assign a place to things and label them.
Keep your things sorted in a basket by designating specific places for them and putting a label on them. Handy, mess-free, and organized!
7. Organize your cables with toilet roll.
Upcycle the toilet paper rolls and an old shoe box for organizing any unruly wires you have lying around. Tangle-free wires are now a reality.
8. Make dusting easy with a lint-roller.
Use the lint roller to clean the tough spots like lampshades, sofas, suede shoes, etc. Cleaning has never been easier.
9. Keep clothing from slipping off hangers with rubber bands.
Or pipe cleaners. Tie one on both the sides of the hanger to keep the clothes in place and save them from slipping off.
10. Have mess free toilets.
Shield the toilet bowl from the spray or otherwise with a potty protector, keeping it cleaner and mess-free. These can also be used to toilet train children.
11. Get the shoes on the right feet with a sticker.
Putting shoes on the right feet can be quite a task for children. Train them the fun way by cutting a sticker in half and putting one inside each shoe. They’ll never go wrong with this little hack!
