Here at Keller Williams The Trembley Group, we are all about helping improve your life in every way we can. Since most of us have some extra time on our hands right now, this is the perfect moment to take on a project or two. Our team put together a list of five useful and clever life hacks for around your house.
Love the idea of having a whiteboard lying around to write messages or reminders, but don’t love the look of a plain whiteboard? Try this creative and stylish way to write reminders, funny sayings, quotes, or leave messages to your family. The supplies you will need to create your message board are, a picture frame, a blank piece of paper and a dry erase marker. Cut the piece of paper to fit the frame and close the frame. From there, all you have to do is write whatever you’d like right on the glass. Whenever you’re ready to change your message, wipe the dry erase marker with a cloth, and it will come right off. Voila!
No-Slip Cutting Board
Have you ever been trying to cut something on a cutting board, and it keeps sliding around on the countertop? Well, we definitely don’t want you coming too close to any more accidents with a knife. Not to worry, though, many of us have this trouble, but not for long! With just two rubber bands, you can transform your slippery cutting board to a stable surface that you can trust. Put one rubber band at the very end of each cutting board. Fix the rubber bands, so it’s not twisted and laying flat on the surface to get the best grip. Now you can chop away without any worry that your cutting board is going to turn on you!
Plastic Bag Holder
Are you like most people who have tons of leftover grocery bags shoved in a drawer or cabinet somewhere because they will come in handy at some point? It’s true; they do come in handy very often and for all sorts of situations. So the answer isn’t to get rid of these useful guys. The answer is to take your empty disinfecting wipes container and put your baggies inside. Empty wipe containers such as Clorox and Lysol make the perfect home. This way, they are stored neatly, and you can take one out when necessary.
Multipurpose Storage Holder
Are you sick of tools all over the garage or the shed? Or are you sick of all the little toys being scattered around the house? We understand it’s the little things in life that are hard to keep track of. And when they don’t have a home, all they do is cause a mess. Whether it’s tools or toys, we have the perfect solution for you. All you will need for this lifehack is an over the door shoe holder. Pick the back of a door that’s best suitable for you, hook the holder in place, and put your items in the slots. Now you’ve created a convenient multipurpose storage holder for your items. Your house already looks cleaner. 😍
Have you ever played the guessing game as to what key is the exact key you’re looking for? It’s not easy keeping track of what key is for where when they all look so similar! Many of us are regularly carrying around a chain full of keys to all sorts of places. We understand how confusing it can get between your keys for the car, house, office, shed, and that’s only to name a few scenarios! You don’t have to go through the pain any longer of standing at the door, struggling to find the right key. All you need is a few different colors of nail polish. Identify where the key goes and paint the key the color of your choice. If you have a lot of keys and are worried about forgetting what color goes where make a color legend that you can refer back to at first. If there are females in the home, chances are you have nail polish lying around. Try giving your keys a makeover, and you won’t regret it!
