Make Sure Your Fridge Shuts Every Time

Electricity is expensive when we use it overtime. On game days your husband and his buddies are always going to the fridge during commercial breaks. But with all the commotion on TV, they don't always remember to close the door for the fridge. To prevent energy waste and spoiled food, lift the front of the fridge 1 inch and wedge two 1/4 inch thick blocks of scrap wood under each side. This creates a slight upward tilt that allows gravity to pull the door shut automatically, locking in the cold air.

How To Unseal Envelope Without Damaging It

Sometimes mistakes happens so that we can learn from it. Just because you mistakenly sealed your niece's birthday card without enclosing the gift card it doesn't mean you have to dip back into your stationery stash. A better bet, Place the envelope in the freezer for two hours. The sub-zero temperature will cause the envelope's glue to become brittle and crack, splitting the seal that secures the flap without any tears. After inserting the gift card, hold the envelope over the steam of a tea kettle for ten seconds. This will melt the glue so you can reseal the envelope with ease, then it solve your problem.

Sometimes honey-do lists aren't the best approach to getting your man to lend a helping hand.

A better way would be to compliment him on how strong he looks carrying the laundry basket up the stairs or thank him with a kiss after he does the dishes. Linking the chores with sex appeal reassures him that he's not giving up his masculinity by contributing to the household.
