clever ideas

I am sure we have all seen the helpful hints that are flying around the internet, specifically on pinterest, that make us think, "why didn't I think of that?!" I seem to see the same ones over and over again but I recently received an email from my dad with a few new ones that I just had to share. If you've seen these I apologize. I thought they were too good not to pass on.

Pump up the volume by placing your iPhone/iPod in a bowl  - the concave shape amplifies the sound. 

While travelling, keep shoes in hotel shower caps to stop dirty soles from rubbing on your clothes.

Find tiny lost items like earring backs by putting a stocking over the vacuum hose. 

Rub a walnut on your furniture to hid any dings and scrapes. 

Store sheet sets in their matching pillow case to keep your linen closet tidy and organized. 

What are the others you've seen and thought, "genius!"

Now just to remember them all....


  1. I hope I remember those, cuz there are a few really good ideas!

  2. Okay, the sheet closet one was amazing!

  3. I'm interested to see if the walnut one works!! Let me know if you try it


Straight up now tell me...
