Everyday Homemaking Hacks

I am a huge fan of things that make my life easier. In my home there are things I have adapted that I would love to share with you.

My charging cord doesn’t quite reach the corner of my couch, and my iPhone is always running out of battery when I sit down to relax for the evening. I use one of these hooks to keep my cord easy to grab when it is needed.



With two boys, there is always a need for a garbage can in our van. I took a simple cereal container and velcroed it to our center console. It easy to reach so we don’t have garbage all over the car.



Our school collects labels, box tops, and milk caps. An easy way to collect them is by taping a sandwich bag inside the cabinet. It’s easy to store away and out of plain sight, and I always know where they are.

We cannot have enough of these in our home. They collect my papers, photos, the boys stuff and more.



We recently remodeled our house and barely had to pound a nail in the wall because we hung all of our pictures with sticky velcro. It is easy to remove for dusting or changing of the photos, but is securely fastened to the wall.


What are some of your favorite tips or tricks to make life a little easier?
