[ ♡ ] Simplify life with Real Simple

I just wanted to share some of my favorite tips from a website called realsimple.com. It’s a website dedicated to supplying tips and tricks to making your life simpler. There’s also a magazine and book called Real Simple. I first discovered this magazine in Borders during my monthly magazine read.

There’s a section where people can submit ideas about how to use everyday items for other things. These are some that I want to try.


Securing tanks to a hanger with huge rubber bands


An old tissue box as a trashbag dispenser.


A cute bobby pin as a bookmark.


Holding a nail in place with a large tooth comb


Making sure buttons don’t come apart by painting the top with clear nail polish. I love this trick!


Using the eraser part of a pencil as backup earring backings


On the go makeup products! I wouldn’t recommend this and doubt that it would work well.


Using water bottles to keep the shape of a pair of boots. This is a way better idea than what I’m doing now (stuffing them with newspaper basically.)


Need a quick iron? Use a straightening iron! I have never thought of this before. I’m going to go try it!


And lastly, making perfect pancakes by dispensing from an old ketchup bottle.

Aren’t those great ideas?

    Awesome. And I’ve been doing the ironing-clothes-and-such-with-hair-straighter. Glad it’s normal! Phew.
