Travel Tricks

Imagine this: You get on the plane, headed to a tropical vacation, but when you try and pull your headphones out of your bag, they’re a tangled mess! It’s annoying, we know. Luckily, all you need is a clothespin to solve that problem. Just wrap your headphones around it and clip them at the end to have a tangle-free set on the plane.

DIY Drink Cooler

Relaxing in the pool on a hot day is the best, but what do you do when you want a drink? Are you REALLY going to get out, dry off, go grab a drink, and then hop back in? We didn’t think so. Make this handy dandy floating cooler to solve that problem. All you have to do is find a plastic container, a cheap pool noodle, and some string. Tie them all together, add ice, and enjoy your chilly refreshments in the pool!
