Paper Clip Hacks

Most people have paper clips, especially if you work in an office. But there are so many things you can do with a paper clip. For example:

* Bra Hack – Use a paper clip to pull your bra straps together in the back to avoid straps showing in back-baring shirts.

* Broken Zipper Tab – If your zipper breaks, weave the paperclip into the hole. Now you have a new zipper tab to keep things closed until you get home.

* Hair Barrette – Use a paper clip as a temporary barrette to keep your hair out of your eyes while working. For a more permanent solution, add some pretty decorations to the paperclip before using it in your hair.

Lipstick Hacks

Yes, lipstick can be used for more than making your lips look pretty. Try out these lipstick hacks when you need to or just because you want to.

* Use as Cheek Color – Using lipstick as cheek color works great, especially if it’s a lighter shade, but even darker shades can be blended to look great.

* Save Broken Lipstick – Did the bullet of your lipstick break off? No worries; put it inside a pillbox or other container and use a lip liner or lip brush to apply.

* Melt It – Don’t want to put your broken lipstick into a pillbox? That’s okay; melt the area that’s broken and attach it back on the wand.

* Store It Right – Put your lipstick in the fridge to keep it from melting and breaking.

* Got a Lipstick Stain? – Don’t worry; you can remove it with hairspray.

Storage Hacks

Everyone needs a good way to organize the things they use every day. These storage hacks will help you become more organized and prepared. My favorite of all…organization. 🙂

* Magnetized Strip – Use in the bathroom to store all your safety pins, nail care items, and anything that is metal that will stick to the strip.

* Toilet Paper Rolls – The empty toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls can be used to organize underwear, scarfs, socks, and many other things to make your drawers look neater and fit more in.

* Wicker Baskets – Use judiciously all over the house to throw things in that do not belong in that room so that you can easily put them back where they belong without making unnecessary steps. If everyone in the house has their own basket then they can take them at the end of each day to put away.

* Spice Rack – Use in the bathroom for extra storage of cleaning, grooming, and body care items.

* Straws – Use straws to store jewelry when traveling to avoid a tangled mess when you arrive. This really works and costs little or nothing because we always have straws in the pantry.

* Altoids Tins – Use to store staples, paperclips, buttons, twist ties, in an orderly manner. Use a label maker to mark what’s inside so you can easily see without opening.
