Three Tips.

1 // 2 // 3

1 // Bowl as iPhone speaker. Place your iPhone in a bowl and turn up the volume -- the concave shape of the bowl will amplify the sound coming from your iPhone. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant! And a heck of a lot cheaper than buying a device to do the same thing (which we may have done a few moths ago...)!

2 // Keeping your matching sheets together. Tuck your sheet set inside one of the pillow cases and stack according to size. Simple trick, I mean, really simple. Another benefit, your linens closet will be ten times more organized. 

3 // Label your power cords. Ever need to unplug a device from behind your entertainment unit, or behind your computer?! All the cords look the same and half the time you end up unplugging the wrong cord (I do at least). Solution? Using those colorful bread tags you have collecting in a drawer, put a label at both ends of every wire and cable. Such a great idea to help keep your cords in order.

Hope you find these three tips useful! Since living on my own, I am all for saving money and finding ways to make my life easier. 


  1. How has it never occurred to me to stick the sheets inside of the pillowcase? Thanks for the tips!

  5. I do that with my sheets :) Very handy. Love the other 2 ideas

  6. I love the idea of putting sheets into the matching pillow cases. The only problem is I have about six or seven pillows on my bed and have to use pillow cases from multiple sets at times. But I love the idea. Now to only implement.
