College years are, without a doubt, the best years of your life. But with lectures, an uber-active social life, work, and other projects … things can get exhausting at times. Why not, then, opt for these life hacks? They’ll save you a good amount of time and make life easy.
Iron Your Food
You read that right. You can make perfect grilled sandwiches by simply wrapping the sandwich in foil and a layer of cloth over it, and ironing away for a good 30-40 seconds. Not just that, your iron can double up as a makeshift electric stove … only, make sure your makeshift stand is sturdy to hold the iron from rolling over.
Use Plastic Bottles as Glasses
Movie night tonight? Who needs to go get glasses when you can simply cut plastic bottles into half and use them as glasses.
Make Sound Amplifiers out of Plastic Bottles
Plastic bottles are extremely versatile. They come in handy especially during those impromptu parties when you need a sound system, but don’t have one. All you’ll need is your phone, an empty plastic bottle and a cutter. Make a slit in the bottle that’s big enough to fit the width of your phone, slide in your phone, and there’s your sound system. Hear the difference?
Use Cola Cans as Wifi Boosters
If you’re getting a weak signal, this hack should help. Cut open empty cola cans to make parabolic reflectors. Make a hole at the base of the can, and place it through the antenna. Your wifi signal will now be much stronger.
Turn Toilet Paper Spool into a Pen Holder
Keep losing your pens every now and then? This hack should help. Empty toilet paper spools can be used as pen holders. Paint them in colors of your choice and turn the boring brown into an interesting work of art.
Share Space to Save Time
Running late for your lectures? No need to wait for your roommate to finish heating their food. You can heat yours too at the same time if you’ll share a plate to heat food, or make room for a second bowl by placing it on top of a cup.
Use Binder Clips to Organize your Refrigerator
Match tonight? Make more refrigerator space to stack on food and beverages with this hack. You won’t need more than 3-7 of these.
File your T-shirts
Fold your t-shirts vertically into half, and then horizontally. Stack all your tees vertically, instead of one on top of the other. This will not only fit in more clothes in the same space, but keep your wardrobe more organized. Also, you’ll save time picking a tee, when you’re running late for your lectures.
Air Condition your Phone
The next time your battery is dying, place your phone in front of the air conditioner. As batteries get drained faster due to heat, keeping your phone cool will help conserve battery for a while.
