this next hack is a time savior, a line-skipping device, and get home faster after landing way of doing things. Any bag that’s been marked with this sticker should be put on top of the rest of the pile and will end up being among the first to hit the baggage claim conveyor belt.
That means you can quickly get out of that game of human bingo and get closer to the exit. You might end up having to sign a waiver, absolving the airline of any damage that your fragile items could potentially incur, but if you don’t actually HAVE any fragile items, you’ve got nothing to lose.
Reuse Plastic Bottles
Having a large wardrobe that has specific draws for shoes is never enough. Buying a beautiful wooden cabinet at the entrance of your house to store the shoes you wear daily is never enough. So, if you need more storage space for your shoes, you can always use old plastic bottles.
Simply cut off the end with a utility knife and stick them together with glue. This way, they won't fall all over the place and will keep your shoes all in one place in a neat setup. Isn't it wonderful to discover that when you last bought a bottle of soda, you actually bought much more?
Download Netflix Movies and Shows
One of the biggest obstacles to streaming is the prerequisite of good quality internet. But Netflix changed everything by rolling out the ability to download select features, which means you can take some items from your queue without worrying about Wi-Fi or an internet connection.
You'll need to snag the mobile app and factor in that downloading requires a bit of time and storage space, but soon you'll be watching great movies and shows while traveling. So, find a show you want to watch, download all episodes, and binge yourself away the next time you're short of Wi-Fi. By the way, do this before flying too. You'll thank us later.
Make Potpourri Bags
Before you head to the home and décor store to buy expensive potpourri, think twice. And no, we're not saying compromise on a nice smelling home just because it costs a few bucks — we're just saying, make your own! There are some things that are just not worth spending your dollars on, and this is one of them.
On an open dryer sheet, place a selection of your favorite fragrant herbs and spices, such as lavender, lemon, verbena, and mint. Add some essential oils, tie the sheet into the bag, and voila! You have your very own custom-made potpourri that you can scatter around different rooms.
Keep Pots and Pans Spick and Span
You are ready to execute what you acknowledged from the latest cooking show. You've prepared everything beforehand and invited your best friends for a special weekend feast. Had a bit of a culinary mishap? Not to worry, we're not all professional chefs, and sometimes we leave that oil sizzling into a burning hot rage, leaving our pans all crusty and black.
You can scrub it tirelessly with a clump of gross steel wool. Alternatively, you can soak the pan with some warm water and soap and then push a dryer sheet into the soapy mix. It will clear things right up!
