Pasta Storage… in an empty Pringles container
Yes, this is a thing! Once you have devoured that tasty can of Pringles, peel off the label, (or use Mod Podge and some scrapbooking paper to cover the current one), write “PASTA” or “NOODLES” on the outside, and voila! You now have hacked your Pringles canister.

Store your beauty products (and gadgets) in an over-the-door shoe organizer
If you’re running out of room to place your hair drier, bottles of hair products, and other beauty gadgets, invest in an over-the-door shoe organizer. Not only can you use these for shoes but also for organizing your collection of beauty products. If you’re looking for something a bit more stylish than an over-the-door organizer, opt for boxed shelves, as seen here.

Use a Ziploc bag to pipe frosting
I’ve done this many times in the past and, let me tell you firsthand, it works like a charm. To use this home hack, take a Ziploc bag and fill it with cake or cookie frosting. Make sure to push all of the frosting to one of the two corners at the bottom of the bag. Then, take scissors to snip off a bit of the corner where the frosting is. Twist and turn the bag and unleash your frosting!

Repurpose dental floss to cut cakes and cheese
While this home hack might still require you to use a knife, using dental floss to section off slices of cake or cheese is perfect. It’s easy to use and doing so allows you to see your portions more clearly before finishing with a knife. Dental floss is also great for separating icing on store-bought cupcakes, in case you’re like me and don’t really like eating frosting on cakes.
