Use Shower Curtain Hooks to Organize Jeans for Easy Accessibility

organize-jeans

Organizing jeans in your closet can be a pain. Sure you can fold jeans and stack them on a shelf somewhere, but then grabbing a pair on the bottom turns the whole stack into a mess. Plus, it’s hard to differentiate one pair from another when they’re all in a stack. Instead, grab some inexpensive shower curtain hooks and hang the jeans from their side belt loops. This hack delivers much better visibility and instant access to your favorite duds!

Silence Slamming Doors

Slamming doors is a personal pet peeve of mine. The only thing worse is a door that slams that also has a poorly aligned latch that rattles around. The good news is you don’t have to be a master carpenter or construction engineer to silence slamming doors and the disharmony they bring. Just head to your local home store and pick up a package of felt pads (used to protect delicate surfaces from not-so-delicate objects). While the pads shown here are by the strike plate, I prefer to apply mine to the upper and lower corner of the door jamb where they are less visible. The pads won’t completely silence the wrath of an angry teenager, but you’ll find your doors closing in a much more civilized fashion.

Cupcake Liners Catch All

We were cleaning out the back of our car recently, and we discovered, for the zillionth time, a yucky sticky mess in one of the cup holders. The mess took far too much time to clean. Knowing there had to be a better way to spend our lives, I discovered this handy solution. Line the cup holders in your car with silicon cupcake liners. The liners will catch most of the junk. After they do, you can simply remove them, clean them in warm water and dish soap, and replace them. These handy little liners take the headache out of a potentially messy job.
