Clever new life hacks for women seem to pop up every day on social media, and whenever I see one, I have to take a look. Life is hectic enough; who wouldn’t like a good hack to make things a little simpler? Here are a few of my favorites specifically for us real women who are just trying to women.
MY FAVORITE LIFE HACKS FOR WOMEN
1. Saving your broken lipstick
Next time your favorite lipstick breaks, don’t toss it! Instead, put it in a pill box (or any other small container), and use a lip brush to apply.

2. Prevent snags in your tights from becoming runs
If you snag your tights, spray hair spray on the snag to prevent the hole from becoming any bigger and turning into a run.
3. Use shower curtain rings to store scarves
I like to hang my scarves in my closet, rather than folding them. This hack is easy and cheap, and is great for displaying all my scarves together (so I can make sure to get good use out of them each season!).

4. Paint the end of your keys with nail polish
No more impatient sorting through keys on your key ring. Paint your keys with nail polish to remember which key opens which door. Of course, don’t paint the part that actually goes in the lock; just the end!
5. Use a wine/champagne bottle to store bracelets
This hack might be more clever storage but let’s not put a label on things… this is especially fun if you have an old wine or champagne bottle from a special occasion. That way, whenever you look at it, you’ll be reminded of that fun memory.
6. Breaking in new shoes
Buying new shoes is the best feeling ever; however, breaking in those new shoes can be painful. Next time you have a new pair, try putting on a thick pair of socks, your new shoes and then use a hair dryer to blow on the tight spots. Repeat until shoes fit comfortably. (And, check out this post for way more shoe hacks!)
7. Putting on a bracelet by yourself
When there’s nobody around to help you put on your bracelet, use a bit of tape to hold one side of the bracelet in place while you fasten.
8. Paint rings with clear nail polish to prevent from tarnishing
To keep your ‘costume jewelry’ rings from tarnishing/leaving a mark on your skin, coat the inside of them with clear nail polish.
9. Use frozen grapes to chill white wine
Avoid watering down your white wine with ice cubes; use frozen grapes! Plus, they taste delicious.
10. Make your own nail polish using loose eye shadow
Next time you have some loose eye shadow, why not try using it on your nails? Mix a little bit of the shadow with clear nail polish for your own signature color.

Loved it O all of these I only knew 1 (which was to spray the leggings) I bet there are a lot of women reading this thinking ‘why didn’t I think of that!’. Especially to tape your bracelet to your wrist

These are so great tips that I’ve never thought of! I’m all for saving my money, so being able to reuse something in a clever way is great. I really like the idea of using the shower curtain circles for scarfs!

Absolutely — it’s so cool to find a clever way to repurpose something (and save money along the way!). Thanks, Shaina.
