Happy Monday! I’m Amanda from Anchored to Sunshine, a DC based lifestyle blog, and am taking over Alanna and Co. today!
Over on Anchored to Sunshine I blog about anything and everything that happens in a 20-something year old girl’s (woman’s?) world. From book recommendations, new recipes, fitness tips, and of course life, I share it all!
So today I figured I would give you some of the best of the best life hacks I’ve come across in my day! These 6 life hacks are actually ones I use on a regular basis. My tried and true!
Get new flowers?
Nothing makes me happier than a bouquet of flowers. Nothing makes me sadder than a bouquet of dead flowers just days later. Adding sugar, vodka, or a penny to the water can help extend their life. Sorry if you didn’t know this before your Valentine’s Day flowers died 🙁 there is always next year!
Have a sore throat?
This life hack is not only effective, but delicious! Eating marshmallows is the perfect sore throat remedy. In fact, it was their original purpose 🙂
Need green onions?
Never buy green onion again, you can regrow them in just a glass of water!
Have an upset tummy?
Have too much pizza and beer? Causing a bit of unwanted stomach acid? Sleep on your left side so your stomach is below your esophagus and it will help minimize the pain.
Got a zit?
I swear it’s just my luck to get a zit right before a big celebration or work presentation. This is a surprisingly simple solution! Dab a bit of toothpaste on it at night and wake up the next morning with it gone.
Eating a banana?
Peel it from the bottom! You wont get any of those annoying little stringy things.
I just learned about a new life hack from PureWow yesterday. You can polish your silver jewelry by dunking it in ketchup. Now I can’t confirm this hack yet, but I have big plans this week to test it out!
