So, you’re sitting at home, and you’ve exhausted all the options to keep yourself entertained or busy. You simply don’t want to watch Netflix anymore, have completed reading that new book, and even that wardrobe doesn’t need any more cleaning. So, what next?
Well, how about trying your hand at a simple life hack or two? It will not only keep you busy but also help you use your time productively.
So, here are the top must-try these life hacks at home when getting bored.
From tennis ball to key holder
If you have an old rubber ball lying around in the house, you can make a rather useful key or paper holder with it. Cut the ball from the middle to give it the shape of a mouth, and draw its eyes. Make sure that the cut you make is slightly wide to hold paper, keys, or a pen properly. Now, stick this ball to the wall, and you’re done.
Lifehack for a BLT sandwich
You must be feeling hungry sitting bored at home. How about making a BLT or a toasted sandwich? This time when you make the sandwich, put two bread slices in one toaster slot. It will make the bread toasty and warm outside but chewy and soft on its inside: perfect for a sandwich.
Using that empty ketchup bottle
Are pancakes pretty common in your household? Make a batch for the upcoming pancake breakfast and put it in that empty ketchup bottle you have lying around. Pouring from a ketchup bottle will make the process mess-free. In fact, why not make some pancakes now to try out this life hack?
Nail polish hack for keys
Try out this life hack, and say goodbye to fumbling around with keys when you’re trying to leave in a hurry. Use different shades of nail polish to color code your keys. Not only will it give you a colorful bunch of keys, but also make it easy for you to choose between identical keys when you’re in a rush.
Shoe rack for cleaning supplies
Put up a hanging shoe rack near your washing machine, and put all your cleaning supplies in it. You can keep the detergents, floor cleaners, disinfectants, and so on in those separate sections of the shoe rack. It will also help you keep the cleaning supplies of your home away from the kids.
A clever way to reuse wrapping paper
Are you in the habit of saving wrapping paper, too? Well, you’re doing something for the environment this way, so it’s a great habit. You can make sure that wrapping paper stays in perfect shape by cutting open toilet paper rolls to be used as cuffs.
Create an instant speaker
Cut up the middle part of a toilet paper roll cover in the shape of the bottom of your phone, and create two stands below the cover. Insert your phone, and play music.
So, which of these hacks are you excited to try out? One thing is for sure: you can bid goodbye to boredom for good now!
