School supply "Hacks"

 


Happy Hump Day!

Back to School is just
around the corner for most
of us. Unbelievable I know!!

Today  I have some different
uses for some of those supplies
we used in school and still use
today.

Rubber Bands

1. Tight jar lid?
Slip a rubber band around the
edge of it for extra grip.

2. Painting?
Secure a rubber band across
the opening of a paint can,
use it to scrape excess paint
off your brush.

3. Doing your nails? French
Manicure?
Slip a rubber band on your
pam from pinkie to thumb.
Slip a finger under the band
so that the nail tip is exposed
then paint that part of the nail.

 


 Remember those pink erasers?

1. Let me preface this one by
saying...not too sure.
Need an earing back in a pinch?
Well pop the eraser off a pencil
and slip it on your earring.

2. Silver need polishing?
Rub an eraser on the surface
to remove any tarnish.

3. Shoes or boots have scuff
marks on them?
* Might test on an unseen spot
first.
Gently rub the eraser over the
surface. Wipe off.



This little item is NOT just
for  keeping papers organized.
Oh no!

1. Do have a clogged brush?
Go find a paper clip, open it
up and use the loop to get
that hair out of your brush.

2. Has the mail arrived?
Instead of ripping open the
envelope, unbend the clip,
slide along the top--no more
ripped envelopes.

3. Humidity got your S and P
shakers? Open up a clip and
poke it through the clogged
holes on your shakers.


So now you have some new
ideas for those "school"
supplies.

  1. Good tips! You can also use an unopened paper clip as a temporary zipper pull. Or in the case of one of my former students, a permanent zipper pull. They also work well to hang items from twine or string.

      We have used the zipper pull on
      at school before.

  2. It's so fun to see these tips and think about the many purposes of simple office supplies :)

    Some of our teachers are already back in the classrooms. Some of our students will be starting school on the 8th of August!
