What’s more we’ve created some ingenious everyday life hacks so you don’t sweat the small stuff…

Ring pull wardrobe

Packed all the clothes you own? Bad times. But help is at hand... use a ring-pull from a can of pop to double up your wardrobe capacity.

Messy cables are bull-clip

Ah, bulldog clips! Attach these snippy little things to the edge of your desk and thread your cables through – boom, untangled for life.


Stack up your beer fridge

Stop those bottles rolling about in your fridge by using – you guessed it, a bulldog clip! Snap these on to the wire shelf and getting stacking.

Take out the trash

Bin-day can turn students into the grouch, especially when the sack is sucked into the bin. Fix this, by drilling a couple of holes in to the bottom of the bin. Tidy.


No more hot and cold nosh

Reheating food in the microwave – the cornerstone of student life for decades. Simply make a hole in the middle before nuking your left overs. Tasty!

Suck it and see

Dropped something small in a hard-to-reach place? Pop some tights on to the end of a hoover nozzle to suck it up without it getting swallowed. Genius!


What’s cooler than being cool?

Ice cold drinks in no time. Just take a wet paper-towel, wrap it around your favourite beverage and pop in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Get wired on loo roll

No matter how carefully you organise your wires pre-move they always end up tangled when they come out the other end. Loo rolls to the rescue.


Cling on to a clean fridge

Cleaning the fridge – the age old nemesis of the student! To make it a little easier, wrap your fridge shelves in clingfilm and just wipe up the mess. Happy days!

The right tool for the job

Opening some plastic packaging can leave you cut to ribbons and weeping in a corner. So man-up and use a tin-opener.


Control that remote!

The ‘Come Dine With Me’ marathon is about to begin and the remote is nowhere to be found. Show it who’s boss with a bit of Velcro.
