Life Tips You Need to Know!!

As a working mom, being in the last trimester of pregnancy, I always look for ways to make my life a little easier, cost efficient, less messy, etc!  I found these tips and had to share! Do you have any tips to share?? Breann

DVD Scratches

If the disk is skipping, rub a banana over it to seal the scratches and keep the DVD playing. Remember to wipe it off before you stick it back in.

Wood Scratches

Rub a walnut on scratches in your favorite wood furniture pieces to make those blemishes disappear.


Put your iPhone or iPod into a bowl. It will amplify the speaker and make the party even louder.

Save Ink

Whenever possible, print in Times New Roman. You’ll get 100 more pages out of a cartridge than you will printing in heavier fonts like Arial or Verdana.

New in The City

Lost or bored in a new city? Call up the concierge at a local upscale hotel. They’ll give you insider tips and answers to questions that only locals can answer.

Motion Sickness

Pop a couple of olives in your mouth if you start to feel the effects of motion sickness. They have tannins that dry up the saliva that makes you feel like you’re going to heave.

Dryer Sheets

Put a dryer sheet in your pocket next time you go hiking or camping. It will keep the mosquitoes away from you.


Place a muffin tin liner on the bottom of your popsicle. It will catch the drips and keep your fingers from getting sticky.

White Boards

Accidentally wrote on the white board with permanent marker? Scribble over it with dry erase marker and it will erase right off.

Unplug It

Before you leave for work or class, unplug everything. Even when electronic devices are off they suck up energy. Pulling the plug can cut up to 10% off of your energy bill.

Plane Tickets

Buy your plane tickets in the middle of the week to save $100 or more. Ticket vendors jack up the prices on the weekend to trap vacationers who make impulse ticket purchases
