Anyone who has an infant or a toddler in the house can tell you that they are in no way having a shortage of baby food jars. If you find you do not like the idea of throwing away a perfectly good jar, let alone the fact of how they just sit in the landfills for all of eternity, then this hack is perfect for you.
Take those clean baby food jars, and use them as a storage container for your spices in your spice rack. By using the same jars for different spices, you will have a nice and uniform look, plus you will be able to see what jar contains which spice.
DIY Shoe Rack
If you need storage space for your shoes, then you can always use old plastic bottles. Simply cut off the end with a utility knife and stick them together with hot glue.
This way, they won't fall all over the place and will keep your shoes all in one place in a neat setup. Place your makeshift cabinet by your front door, in your closet, or wherever you usually keep your shoes.
Keep Your Sponge Fresh With a Binder Clip
Holding your dish sponges with binder clips is a great way to keep them on your sink without taking up so much space. And, as an added bonus, this method of storage helps air-dry them quickly—which is more sanitary and keeps bacteria from building up on the sponge.
It should also be noted that this wonderful method of air-drying your sponges, and keeping them easy to access, is dirt cheap. Binder clips cost next to nothing, and, chances are, you already have more than a few of them in your home anyway!
Wrap an Elastic Band Around a Soap Dispenser
Why? You might ask yourselves. Well, this is a great way to be careful with your soap usage. It's a good way to not be wasteful. Just wrap a rubber band around your soap dispenser, so you don't squeeze all your soap away.
This will also save you some good money because you won't be running to the store every week for a new bottle.
Patch Up Windowscreen Holes With Nail Polish
Be aware that this is for smaller holes and cracks. If you have a massive hole in your window screen, you might need to replace it, but for minor ones, you can just use clear nail polish.
Just paint the crack with some transparent nail polish, and it will be as good as new in no time. Just like you do with runny nylon stockings.
