13. Long day outside? 

Whether you are going to the beach, pool, lake, etc. if you have a cooler full of ice and drinks and don't want it melted as fast, sprinkle a little salt over the ice to keep it frozen longer.

14. Can’t think of a gift for someone? 

If you are stuck and cannot think of a gift for someone, when you are talking to them tell them you already got them a gift. After that ask them to guess what it is, and then boom!! Some ideas for you to get as gifts.

15. Need a nightlight? 

Even if it is just for you or for a party, get empty or full clear bottles and put a glow stick in them. This is a cool and fun night light or decoration for a night party!
