Lip Balm Emergency Cash Supply

chapstick-cash

Headed to the beach and don’t want your cash stolen? Grab an old Chap Stick or other lip balm container and remove what’s left inside (including the inside portion of the twist up mechanism). Take all the cash you’ll need for frozen, chocolate-covered bananas, roll into a cylinder with a diameter smaller than the tube and stash that cash! Depending on your currency of choice and the brand of lip balm, you may need to fold the cash lengthwise before rolling to get the right fit (just make sure you leave enough cash sticking up above the top of the tube that you can still grab the bills easily). Don’t forget about your stash and try to use it on your lips though, cash residue has a low SPF!

Slicing Strawberries with an Egg Slicer

Summer is a great time to eat strawberries ala carte, or as part of a fruit salad. However slicing them can be a pain. Use a standard egg slicer to slice strawberries to make your prep time more “fruitful!” For optimal results, make sure you cut off the stem prior to slicing.

Hold Nail with Clothes Pin, Hair Pin or Comb to Prevent Smashing Fingers

Hold Nail with Clothes Pin, Hair Pin or Comb to Prevent Smashing Fingers

If I had a nickle for every time I missed the nail whilst hammering, I’d be rich! Keep your precious fingers out of the line of fire by using an aid to hold nails in place. Personally, I prefer the clothes pin holder, however a bobby pin or comb works just as well! All you need to do is hold nail with clothes pin, hair pin or comb to prevent smashing fingers then pound nail into place with hammer.

Use a Tennis Ball to Park the Car

Use a Tennis Ball to Park the Car

Have trouble judging how far to pull into the garage so you don’t hit the wall or stick out? Here’s an easy fix for that. Use a tennis ball to park the car. Well not literally, but as a parking guide in the garage. Park your car at just the right spot, then attach a tennis ball to some twine and hang it from ceiling so when you pull in, the tennis ball hits your windshield at that sweet spot of perfect parking.
