I love that I have been able to turn to the Internet, specifically YouTube, many times when I have been stuck with something I can't fix or wanted to learn how to do myself. The Internet is a great resource for such topics, but it can also be a challenge to find the answer if you don't even know what you are looking for.
I surf the Internet pretty much daily, mostly about makeup, beauty or fashion, but I also use it to learn and find some useful information.
Listed below are a few tips and things I have found that I wanted to share that have saved me time and have also saved me from NOT wasting additional energy, rage, anger and most of all my sanity! ;)
1. Ipod has frozen while charging
This has happened to me more often than I care to admit. Each time this has happened I will panic, get stressed out and then remember, "Oh yeah, I fixed this with that YouTube clip". So here is the clip that I found that has helped me with my Ipod Nano: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JEgr1Xfj4s
2. How to create an instant snack bowl
Sometimes when you have people over, and it is a more casual setting, or even if you are alone this neat folding technique is awesome! This makes any snack bag into a bowl for you, in less than a minute, check it out: http://www.lifehacker.com.au/2010/04/create-an-instant-snack-bowl-from-any-snack-bag/
3. Protect your shoes when travelling
This one might sound odd, but it is a great tip to protect your shoes and your clothes when travelling. I came across this tip here: http://www.realsimple.com/new-uses-for-old-things/new-uses-travel/shower-cap-00000000014397/index.html
4. Easy way to clean your closet
Turn your closet hangers the opposite direction. As you wear each item, turn the hanger the correct side. By the end of the week, you will notice which items you are wearing and which items are just staying untouched. By the end of a few weeks, you will know exactly what to purge from your closet to help keep it clear and organized. Whatever is not being worn, you can donate :)
5. Cork Board Jewellery Organizer
My challenge has always been on how to keep all my necklaces from tangling into one another. Keeping them in a drawer or a jewellery box does not work! Also, I want to be able to find the item quickly. The cork board has definitely helped me out and makes it much more fun to get ready in the morning. I can't recall where I originally saw the inspiration for this, but I did my own post version: http://www.makeupbysand.blogspot.ca/2011/12/mini-haul-of-week-diy-jewellery.html
Hope these tips and tricks work for you! I will be doing this post again covering time saving tips for attending a party and amazing beauty tips and tricks, all that help save time and money, stay tuned!
