Most of the time we forget to think outside of the box. We grow so accustomed to the way things work, we don’t even think twice about doing something a different way. We fail to realize that many everyday objects can be used for more than one thing.
A ladder, for example, is specifically for people to climb to higher heights but have you ever thought about how it could also be used as a bookshelf? Repurposing different objects is easy, you just gotta look at it in a different perspective.
Here’s a few creative hacks that might help simplify your life.
#1. Fridges and freezers can easily get filled up. Maximize your space by using binder clips to clip some of your bagged food items to the shelves.
#2. Here’s a trick to keep your water ice cold, literally. Fill half of your water bottle with water, freeze it while its on its side, and then fill the other half with actual water!
#3. When you have no one around you to help you put a bracelet on, use a paper clip to help you!
#4. Legos can be a lot more useful than you think. For example, you can create a huge panel of key holders!
#5. Do you have a lot of damaged wooden furniture? Before you go shopping for new furniture, try rubbing a walnut onto the damaged areas to make it look brand new.
#6. If you don’t have enough closet or shelf space, hang redundand chairs on the wall to create more storage space.
#7. Shoes inevitably become dirty, there’s not much we can do about that. We can, however, make them white again with the help of household cleaner!
#8. Sometimes the most difficult part about sewing is putting the thread through the needle. Spray a bit of hairspray on the end of the thread to stiffen it for easier threading.
#9. If you have a tight space garage that you park your car in, attach a part of a pool noodle to the wall to prevent your car door from slamming against it.
#10. Transform an old ladder into a cool looking rustic bookshelf by adding panels on three different levels of the ladder.
