One of the saddest things about growing up (aside from student loans, dishes, and depending on coffee to survive) is not spending sufficient time in blanket forts. But the truth is, nobody is stopping you from building a blanket fort, and now you probably have better motor skills to do it. Just call it your reading nook!
You don’t even have to read there. All you need to do is mount a heavy-duty tension rod between the wall and a big piece of furniture. Next, drape blankets over it. For a finishing touch, throw some pillows on the floor and put up some twinkle lights.
Double Your Hangers
Your closet will never be as big as you want it to be. There's another easy way to double your closet capacity without spending loads of cash to revamp your closet or buy special hangers.
All you need to do is attach a soda can tab to your hanger's hook and layer more hangers through. Now there is no need to let go of all of those office shirts you love.
We all hate nails on the chalkboard. It just sends shivers down our spine. However, if you have a cat that has been clawing your favorite piece of furniture (or your roommate's finest piece), you can use this tactic to prevent your cat from clawing.
Simply cover the area with aluminum foil and wait. Next time your cat begins to claw the area, it will feel that same nail-on-chalkboard sensation and be less prone to scratch your sofa later.
Use Binder Clips in a Whole New Way
A pyramid is usually a pretty stable shape. (Just look at how long these monumental structures survived!) However, if you try to stack your beers into a pyramid in your fridge, you'll find that this shape is much less stable than advertised.
Well, a binder clip or two can solve the problem. Just use the clips as an easy stop, as instructed in the above picture, and stack away!
You know how you have all of your necklaces laid out nicely, and then you turn around, and they magically turn into a useless lump of tangled mess? One that requires the help of every single god in every single faith to set straight again? A shower curtain rod could save you from that.
A small tension rod (or several if you happen to own all of Mr. T's jewelry collection) in a little closet space will help you keep your chains in check.
