The 21st-century woman is busy.. Sometimes, she’s balancing school, work, family – and on top of all that, she has to keep herself up, too! With only 24 hours in a day, how can a modern woman make time for herself while also making time for everything else? We’ve got a few life hacks for the working woman that can make our day a lot easier!
Prevent runs in stockings
We feel like our grandmas told us this one. Grab some hairspray (they have really cheap ones at the dollar store!) and just spray them on your stockings or tights! Is there a snag in them? Just use some clear nails polish and put a bit over the snag. That’ll prevent them from creating a hole.
De-fuzz a sweater
We all hate when we try to break out our biggest, most comfortable sweater and then we see tiny, little balls of fuzz on it. Well, there’s a hack for that! Grab a razor and just scrape it gently over the sweater. The razor will take away any of the fuzzballs without doing damage. The best part? This works for coats and pants, too! Yay to no more fuzz!
Buy a portable charger
Carrying around an actual charger to a phone is such a hassle. The cord gets all tangles in our purses, and it’s stress we didn’t ask for. So, it’s honestly just so much easier to get a portable charger. We’ll be able to discreetly charge our phones, and the question, “Is there a plug anywhere?” will never come out of our mouths again. Our top 3 favorite portable chargers are this one as first, second, and third!
Putting clothes in the freezer
Okay, okay, hear us out, first – we all hate when we have a load of clothes that need to be washed, but it’s so late at night and we’re so tired that we just can’t. But wearing dirty, smelly clothes is just not an option. If we wanna push for another day or two, a simple (and a little weird) hack is to put the item of clothing in a ziplock bag and store it in the freezer overnight! It won’t smell like spring mist, but it won’t smell funky, either.
Breaking in shoes has got to be the single worst thing to ever happen to humanity. We have to wear our uncomfortable shoes all day with the hopes of them feeling comfortable at the end of the day? Well, the modern woman has no time or patience for that. Grab a pair of thick socks and put them on. Then put on a pair of new shoes, and get to blowdrying! The heat will expand the shoe, making it have more room for our feet!
Being a working woman is not easy by any means. It’s hard out here for us, and it doesn’t seem to be getting any easier! But that’s why it’s important to follow hacks like these – they can make a week of stress and too little time turn into a week of smooth-sailing successes.
