Whether you love all things snow and ice or dread the cold months of the year, one thing is for sure: winter is here, and it’s going to stay for a while. Even those of us who love it know there are challenges, but what we didn’t know is that it’s easy to make it better by using common household items.
Luckily, there’s Millennial Moms, who is here today to show us FIFTEEN genius winter tips. She’s conquered everything from makeup to dry skin to warm houses to de-icing cars.
Below we’ve shared some of her favorite tips, but be sure to watch the video to see all of her genius ideas. Trust us, you’ll be very happy you did.
- Organize your winter boots
One of the few good things about winter is that boot season is back. Thankfully. But as much as we love our boot collection, we hate that the larger boots tend to spill out and take up unnecessary closet space.
To prevent this, cut out pool noodles and glue them into your boots! This will keep the boots upright and significantly de-clutter your closet.
- Avoid cracked feet
Nothing is worse in winter than dry, cracked feet. Yikes. Luckily, there’s a way to avoid this inconvenience overnight! Simply apply petroleum jelly to your feet, preferably with cocoa butter, and then put on a pair of fluffy socks before you go to bed.
This will lock in all the moisture from the petroleum jelly and make your feet baby soft when you wake up in the morning.
- Save on heating costs
Winter is baking season, so why not use your oven in two different ways? Once you’re done baking your delicious pastries, turn off the oven and leave the door ajar.
The heat will escape from the oven and really help warm your home, making everything smell great AND saving you money on your heating bills.
