It’s Summer Time and everyone including myself is excited. I don’t know about anyone one else but once Christmas is over I’m definitely ready for Summer. Since this beautiful season is here I decided to share some of the life hacks I used last year. But, also plan this year as well I feel like this is the perfect time of year. To test out all those D.I.Y’s and life hacks you find on Pinterest. So here are five of them for you to try.
Number one, we all know that if you are sitting by a pool or at the beach you usually have an open bottle or can of soda or juice. You usually are trying to keep an eye on the bottle to make sure no bugs or anything else are going in it. So, to avoid that problem and not having to worry about it through the day, take a cupcake holder and cut a little hole in it and place it on top, add a straw and you are good to go. I know you can actually find rubber can top covers on amazon as well but this will save some money. Why not just use what you more than likely already have in your house?
Number two, I have tried this one once at a friend's house. There is a pretty good chance that during the Summer or when it's hot in general you could end up getting burned. Once you get burned you're going to reach for the aloe to soothe it. I'm not sure about anyone else but I like my aloe cold so we keep it in our fridge. But if you are in a huge need for cold aloe you can take a basic nice tray or one that makes cute shapes and freeze the aloe in those. That way when you're burnt and wanting instant cold aloe relief you have some nice aloe ice cubes. I am totally the person to use the more cuter ice trays like the ones in the shape of dolphins.
The next one is great for the hot summer days when you are spending it in the pool and that is floating cooler. Now I would suggest this one more to people who have there own private pool. Public pools see have more rules than you would for your own pool. But if you get I would say a medium sized container. Then, take a pool noodle and cut it in to four equal sized pieces that fit the size of the container. Then put those on a rope and tie them around the container and fill it with ice and drinks. You have a floating cooler for yourself and your guest when unwilling to leave the pool for an ice cold drink
Number four, now I know they make water proof cases for phone now but I personally I don’t want to spend $80 on a case I’ll probably only use during the Summer. So I know this one is probably really well known. To protect your phone from getting wet at the beach, pool, or any other water activity you’re doing put your phone in a plastic sandwich bag. It protects your phone perfectly fine and is a lot cheaper than any waterproof phone case.
The last one is more of a snack life hack. Now I know when if your at the beach or pool you more than likely bring snacks with you. This one I have not had a chance to try my self yet, but I will be trying it. If you want to keep your snacks fresh like chips or crackers or you don’t want sand on them then you can use an empty bottle of coffee creamer as snack storage. Since most coffee creamer bottles have lids that snap shut you can just lift up the lid and shake out the snack without getting sand on them. Snap it shut to keep it fresh. This great because if your at the beach more sand is probably ending up in your mouth than wanted.
Since Summer is now here it is the perfect time to try d.i.y’s and life hacks. All of the life hacks came from Pinterest so you can definitely find more on there along with a lot more Summer activities. It will keep you from being completely board this Summer and what I will be doing to keep my self entertained. So I hope these were helpful and if you haven’t already you will try a few.
