Life Hack Solutions Make Your Day Easier

We are constantly running into pesky little obstacles in life that make things difficult. Luckily, there are ways to avoid these nuisances through the use of “life hacks.” Life hacks are uncommon solutions to common problems.

Life Hack Solutions

We know we have bigger things to worry about than a scratch on the new kitchen table or popping the zipper on a favorite pair of pants. With these life hacks, everyday objects can be used in unusual ways to make life easier. The list that follows includes ten life hacks that will help you manage your time in a more efficient way and clear your mind of some of the petty problems in your life.

1. Rub a walnut on scratched or damaged wooden furniture to cover up the blemishes.

2. Bust your zipper? Attach a key ring on the zipper and slip it over the button of you pants.

3. Instead of ice cubes, freeze grapes and put them in white wine. Ice cubes water the wine down. Frozen grapes keep your wine cool and give you one essential serving of fruit for the day! What a way to get nutrition as you relax in your BabeCave.

4. Do you have so many keys that your key ring makes you look like a prison guard? Use nail polish to identify different keys.

5. Clip a clothespin onto a nail to hold the nail in place while hammering. Your fingers will thank you!

6. Put a wooden spoon across a boiling pot of water to keep it from boiling over. Never knew that one, did you?!

7. Take some aluminum foil, ball it up, and throw it into the dryer. It will eliminate static cling and act as a dryer sheet.

8. Crumple up newspaper and stuff it in your shoes to absorb odor and moisture.

9. Paint clear nail polish onto the buttons of your shirts to keep them from unraveling. The polish will hold the thread and the button together so your button doesn’t fall off.

10. Break in new shoes in no time at all. Wear a pair of thick socks and put on your new shoes. Use a hair dryer to blow over tight areas for five minutes. This helps as our pretty feet get fat with age!

Seasonal Decorations in Your Babe Cave

Nature redecorates itself beautifully every season, doesn’t it? It’s only natural that we want to spruce up our Babe Caves to match the magnificent new season. Here are some ways to spruce up your Cave with seasonal decorations for spring and summer.

Decorate with Flowers

Decorate with flowers. Cut flowers are expensive and have a short lifespan. Silk flowers are pretty and last much, much longer. If you prefer real flowers, consider potted plants. As long as they get enough sun and water, they will live for a long time, making them much more cost-effective than cut flowers. Of course, if you have your own flower garden, use your own cut flowers and be proud that you have the gift of a “green thumb”!

Keep It Light

If dark curtains make the Babe Cave look too wintry, sew or hang curtains in a lighter color. Make or buy some simple spring-themed throw pillows for the couch, and create a nice spring centerpiece for your side table. If you put your creativity to work, you can have lots of new spring items for next to nothing. Or, go out and get what you want. After all, this is YOUR Babe Cave. Do what you want to make it your own!

Is your furniture hindering your spring decorating efforts? Try some slipcovers. You can find them to fit most couches and chairs, and they come in a variety of colors and fabrics. A light or pastel color will complement the rest of your summery décor.

Bring Outdoors In

Rocks and pieces of wood are available in certain stores or the great outdoors. They can easily be cleaned and painted in a spring color and motif. Place them in windowsills and on end tables. Use a large painted rock as a doorstop or focal piece.

Keep It Fresh

Pick up some candles in pastel colors and fresh scents. They will make your BabeCave smell great. The light colors make a great accent for any shelf, table or sconce.

Spruce Up With Seasonal Decorations

Decorating for the season is lots of fun, and it doesn’t have to be ridiculously expensive. Finding deals on Babe Cave items and creating some of your own accent pieces or furniture coverings allow you to prime your Babe Cave for inspiration, education, and much needed relaxation!
