• “When my brother had a job in my town, naturally he came to stay at my house. But he was working nights and really needed to sleep during the day. We purchased a few pieces of poster board at the dollar store and lined the windows in the room he was sleeping in. They really cut out the light, and pretty much stayed put when tucked behind the blinds. He was able to get a few hours of good sleep and the poster board can be used again.” — M.R. in Arizona

• “Here is my tip: Have your mom or dad help you glue pompoms on a plastic headband for a fun change. You can make a whole rainbow or just use one color or whatever you want.” — C.E. in Florida

.

• Glass candleholders can make a nice storage for bathroom items like cotton swabs and cotton balls, even small products can be organized into these pretty holders.

.

• “I like having a reusable straw since I feel bad about all the plastic out there. The problem is that silicone straws are not stiff enough because I like ice in my drinks, and I don’t like the feeling of a metal straw. I found some metal straws that have a little silicone tip, and now I have the best of both worlds!” — P.A.

.

• Regularly review your subscription memberships and recurring bills. Things like meal boxes, online services, cosmetics club memberships and even automatic razor deliveries can get out of hand. Set aside time every couple of months to decide if you are really using/benefitting from the services. Cancel if you are not.

.

• If you have fruit that is on the edge of going bad, throw it in your freezer. You’ll have a ready supply of smoothie ingredients, and things like grapes, orange sections and berries taste downright refreshing when served frozen on a hot day.
