Free up space on your Iphone with these surprise 6 tricks that you're likely not doing YET! No need to delete ANY apps with these great tips!

Have you ever gotten this dreaded pop up on your Iphone right as you’re about to take a photo? If you’re anything like me, you then scrabble to try to delete any app that hasn’t been used recently or quickly remove some older photos where you didn’t look very good. By the time I free up space on my phone, the photo opt has likely passed.

Free up space on your Iphone with these surprise 6 tricks that you're likely not doing YET! No need to delete ANY apps with these great tips!

Getting frustrated that my ‘fixes’ were always temporary, I figured out what was taking up so much space on my phone. In-fact, I found 6.

Before I dig in to my 6 tips, you should find out what’s taking up the most space on YOUR phone. Simply go to the Settings app then go to General > Usage > Manage Storage.

You’ll see all your apps in order of the amount of space they’re taking up on your phone. For those apps that you don’t use enough to justify, DELETE!

1 Photos

It’s probably no surprise that photos tend to take up a LOT of space. So take a look at your most recent selfies and decide if you really need all the extras that didn’t make it to your facebook page. Yes it’s painful, but dwindle those photos down to the essentials.

You can also enable automatic uploading to Dropbox. Simply download the Dropbox app (yes, we’re trying to get rid of apps, but this one will be beneficial!) and either create an account or sign in, if you already have an account. Then select “enable camera upload”. Now moving forward all your photos will also download in to your Dropbox account as long as you keep the app on your phone. This means you can safely delete the photos on your phone to clear up space!

2 Do you take photos in HDR?

If you don’t, I highly recommend it. This feature allows you to take better quality photos from your iphone (HDR = high dynamic range). Just be aware that it is automatically set to save both versions of the photo (a plain one and a HDR one). To change this, simply go back to Settings > Photos  & Camera and deselect ‘Keep Normal Photo’.

3 Remove old Podcasts

Podcasts can take up a LOT of room on your phone and typically aren’t necessary to store once you’ve listened to them. “Serial” I’m looking at you! At the bottom of your podcast app will be the individual ones that you’ve already listened to. Just swipe left and select the red delete button.

4 Delete old text messages

I admit, sometimes I think it’s fun to look back through past text messages, but it’s doubtful that most really need to be saved. Yet, your text messages are auto set to never delete. To change this go to Settings > Messages. Under Keep Message, select 30 days or 1 year. 

5 Stop Photo Streaming

Photo stream automatically syncs your photos between your Apple devises. This means that any photos on your ipad will sync (and take up space) on your iphone. Unless you specifically need this feature often, you should turn it off. Go to Settings > Photos & Camera > My Photo Stream and turn it off. 

6 Clear your browser history

Browser history likely isn’t a main culprit of Iphone space, but you may be surprised how much it takes up. To clear your browser, go back up to Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Data.

Free up space on your Iphone with these surprise 6 tricks that you're likely not doing YET! No need to delete ANY apps with these great tips!

I hope this helps you free up space on your Iphone!

My you never be in a situation without enough space to snap a selfie again!

Make sure you've always got these 10 items stored in your trunk at all times! Don't worry, these trunk essentials WON'T take up your entire trunk!

As the seasons change, it always seems like the right time to re-organize, re-fresh, re-clean.

Ummm..actually, who am I kidding. I do this daily. I don’t need a weather change as a prompt.

But our car was in need of some major cleaning out and organizing after a summer of road trips and camping. The first area I’m tackling is the trunk! I like to keep essentials in a nice organized manner in the event that ‘something’ happens. Hopefully I won’t need these items, but as the saying goes ‘better safe than sorry.’

 

Here are my top 10 trunk essentials 

Now let me explain my rational for each of these ….

1 Extra Blanket | I store an old blanket that doesn’t really match any of our bedrooms. It’s come in handy to use as an extra blanket camping and when we go to outdoor concerts. And in the event that we had a real emergency, it’s wise to have extra blankets available.

2 Several Garbage Bags | These have been really useful to prevent the car from getting dirty – putting our dirty boots in post hiking trip and transporting plants in from Home Depot. Make sure you've always got these 10 items stored in your trunk at all times! Don't worry, these trunk essentials WON'T take up your entire trunk!

3 Water & Food | I store two water bottles and a couple bags of nuts in the event that we need food or water. I’ve heard that it’s bad to keep plastic water bottles in a hot car for long periods of time. Yet in the event that we had a real emergency I figured that it would be better to have bad water than no water at all. We’ve also used the water for cleaning up spills.

4 Cleaning Spray & Paper Towels | With the amount of road trips that we take, we do a lot of eating in the car, thus lots of spills and crumbs. Cleaning supplies have come in handy quite often!

5 Extra Towel | It’s great to have as a buffer between the car seat and anything else. We’ve put them on the seats when we’ve had dogs in our car. These specifically came in handy after a canoeing trip when I felt out of the canoe and was soaking wet. (Which was my last canoeing trip)

6 First Aid Kit | I make sure it’s stocked with a lot of band-aids of different sizes, as I tend to get blisters easily. Especially with more outdoor summer activities!

7 Extra Grocery Bags | I can’t count the number of times on my hand when I went to the grocery store and forgot my plastic bags. Ugh. I always keep a couple in the trunk, just in case.

8 Flash Light | Make sure you've always got these 10 items stored in your trunk at all times! Don't worry, these trunk essentials WON'T take up your entire trunk! Believe it or not, I’ve actually used the flashlight for extra light to put on make-up in the car before going out to dinner. Obviously not the intended reason for the flashlight, but it did come in handy 🙂 .

9 Small Umbrella | I live in Seattle. No further explanation needed.

10 Trunk Organizer | This is the one I purchased to put all our items in. I love it and highly recommend it because: 1) it’cheap. 2) it can expand or shrink in size (we all know that trunk space is valuable so I love the options this organizer has). 3) it has Velcro on the bottom so it stays put! No worrying about things in the trunk moving around.

Make sure you've always got these 10 items stored in your trunk at all times! Don't worry, these trunk essentials WON'T take up your entire trunk!

Any other essentials that you store in your trunk?

Make a cheaper version of the fancy department store lip scrub with your own diy lip scrub with just 2 ingredients in less than 5 minutes!

Make a cheaper version of the fancy department store lip scrub with your own diy lip scrub with just 2 ingredients in less than 5 minutes!
I love when I can make something easily at my home that would typically cost me a fortune at a store. There’s a bunch of new fancy lip scrubs out on the market today and although I can be a sucker for a fun new product, this one is just so simple to make on my own!

This week’s Fast Fix Friday is an easy DIY lip scrub solution using stuff you already have at home. Right in time for the cold winter …. your dry lips will thank you!

All you need to make this diy lip scrub:

  1. Petroleum jelly
  2. Sugar
  3. Small jar with lid (or you could even use an old eye cream jar!)

Make a cheaper version of the fancy department store lip scrub with your own diy lip scrub with just 2 ingredients in less than 5 minutes!

Mix (with your finger) equal parts of petroleum jelly and sugar in to the small jar. I typically fill the jar 2/3 full. (You can use a larger mixing bowl, as it will be easier to mix, but the petroleum jelly is kind of messy. I’d rather NOT have to clean a mixing bowl with petroleum jelly all over it!)

Use the scrub a couple times a week by applying the mixture with your fingers to your lips and scrub gently. Wash off with a washrag and dry with a towel. If you have any leftover on your fingers, use them to exfoliate your hands and nail cuticles!

Finally apply chap stick to keep them moisturized!

(and it’s another easy product to pop in your toiletry caddy!)

The last time I lived in a college dorm was my sophomore year of college, over 13 years ago. Starting my junior year, I moved to an off campus house with girlfriends and said goodbye to dorm life by throwing away my shower sandals & caddy in exchange for a bedroom without bunk-beds and a shower that wouldn’t cause foot fungus. Who would have thought over a decade later a shower caddy would be one of my best morning routine time savers?

So before I indulge you in explaining my seemingly juvenile bathroom accessory, let me assure you that I don’t still use shower shoes 🙂 .

The toiletry caddy idea originated after my husband and I purchased our first condo 5 years ago in Chicago. This was the first time that we lived in a two bathroom home. I typically wake up earlier during the weekdays and according to him I make A LOT of noise getting ready in our master bathroom. I offered to use the guest bedroom in the morning, but our guest bathroom was super small and didn’t have drawers for all my toiletries. I ended up making MORE noise each morning trekking my toiletries from our master bath to the guest bath. Poor Joe couldn’t get any sleep in the mornings.

So I started throwing all my toiletries in an extra shower caddy …..

shower caddy

Here’s what you need to make your own shower caddy organizer:

Since you can’t create a toiletry caddy without a caddy, that will be your first step. Mine is so old that I can’t find it online anywhere, but here, here and here are a couple good options. My preference is plainer the better as I find that too many compartments and gadgets sometimes make organizing HARDER!

Next pull out all your toiletries that you use on a daily basis. (I’m not talking about the super hold hairspray that you only use on a Saturday night.) Put all your day-to-day toiletries in a row from most used to least used, left to right. (this isn’t 100% necessary, but it IS kind of entertaining). In the event that you don’t have room for everything, those items on the right won’t make it in the caddy. And I’ll admit it. Toothbrush wasn’t the furthest left for me 🙁 .

Remember all those make up bags you get with your free gift at department stores? Put them to use by storing your makeup inside!

Same thing for cotton balls & q-tips.

For any of my toiletries that are rather large (mouthwash, I’m looking at you), I transferred in to smaller Container Store clear container. For the mouthwash I went for a tall narrow container in order to optimize the most room in my caddy. The small white one? Baby powder ( = my version of dry shampoo). Take a look back up at the photo of all my toiletries to see how often I use it 🙂 .

Now all you need to do is make a little room under your sink to store your shower caddy once you’re finished getting ready in the morning!

Note that I don’t put my straightener, curling iron or hair dryer in my caddy. I just don’t use these everyday and don’t have room.

The benefits of using the shower caddy:

  • I can easily transfer to any of our bathrooms to get ready in (I HATE sharing a bathroom in the morning)
  • All my toiletries that I need are right in front of me (therefore no sifting through drawers)
  • It makes me reduce the number of random products that I use in the morning
  • Storage is easy underneath any bathroom sink cabinets

Check out these 7 top Gmail hacks to make your email more efficient and effective! Who knew Gmail had all these hidden features!

I’m a huge Google fan. I love that it has a suite of products (email, calendar, docs, surveys, hangout) all built in to one account to make life easier. Added perk is only one password to remember! But admittedly I wasn’t always a Gmail fan. I’m loyal and stick to what I know … which is Outlook. Yet my more tech savvy husband, Joe, convinced me of the Gmail appeal. Over the years, I’ve reluctantly admitted he was right.

Last week I shared the step by step to using Hangouts effectively, so today I want to share with you the top 7 Gmail hacks I’ve learned along the way. And some of these may or may not have been taught to me by Joe 🙂 .

1 – Canned Responses

Check out these 7 top Gmail hacks to make your email more efficient and effective! Who knew Gmail had all these hidden features!If you commonly compose and reply with the same message over and over, you could benefit from the “canned response” feature. This lets you create automatic responses that you can insert in to your email and tweak as needed without having to manually type out the whole thing. Call it the lazy girl tip to sending emails. In order to enable this feature, click the gear in the top right corner. Select “Settings” and go to the “Labs” tab. Then enable “Canned Responses” and save.Check out these 7 top Gmail hacks to make your email more efficient and effective! Who knew Gmail had all these hidden features!

Now when you open up an email you can create and/or add an existing canned massage. Brilliant.Check out these 7 top Gmail hacks to make your email more efficient and effective! Who knew Gmail had all these hidden features!

2 – Unsend Emails

Ever accidently hit send mid email? Or ever send a hasty email that you wish you could take back? (Yep, I’ve done this one too.) The good news is that you CAN take those emails back up to 30 seconds after you hit “send”. In order to enable this feature, go back to Settings, scroll down to “Undo Send”. Check the button and select the cancelation period. Then save.

When you send a future email, you’ll see this bar below up top. Life. Saver.

3 – Multiple Email Accounts

I have a couple different gmail accounts, one for my blog and one for personal. Some of you may have multiple gmail accounts too (for example, if you set up a new email address when changing your last name after getting married). You can add up to 5 Gmail accounts under one. This is super convenient if you don’t want to manually log in and out of each of your accounts. To set this up simple go back to your Settings, click on the “Accounts” tab, then click “Add another email address.”

Then when you send an email you’ll see the “from” line which you can change to any of your gmail addresses.Check out these 7 top Gmail hacks to make your email more efficient and effective! Who knew Gmail had all these hidden features!4 – Folders

In general Gmail isn’t a huge fan of folders, but I am. It’s the one feature that I love more than anything. I like my email organized just like I like my life organized. To set these up, go back to “Settings”, then select the “Labels” tab. Scroll down to the bottom and create any new Labels that you want. Google may call them “Labels”, but I use them as “Folders”. Sorry Google.

Now when you look over to your left side bar, you’ll see the Folders.  You can easily move your emails in to the folders by clicking on the email and dragging in to the folder. OR clicking on the email and selecting the Labels drop down at the top.

5 – Send Email Later

I’m one of those people who works late at night and on the weekends. But to all my coworkers, I’m likely rather frustrating because no one wants to get emails when they’re not working. Enter Boomerang. The magical ability to send your emails at a future date. Gmail does not have this feature directly, BUT the Gmail extension, Boomerang, will do the trick. First, simply download the Boomerang extension. Log in to Gmail. Start composing a new email. Now you’ll see a red “Send Later” button. Select WHEN you want the email to send and hit “Confirm”.

6 – See which emails are sent JUST to You

When you log in to check your email it’s easy to see which emails are sent JUST to you vs you & other recipients. To activate, go back in to Settings, scroll to the bottom to “Personal Level Indicators”, select “Show Indicators”.

I’m a lip balm addict. There I said it. But not because I want my lips looking great; it’s because my lips are ALWAYS chapped!

Maybe it’s because I don’t drink enough water. (Coffee has water in it, right??? And I mean, wine DOES come from grapes.)

Since I’m not giving up my two favorite beverages anytime soon and I can never seem to drink enough water, I always keep a super moisturizing lip balm on me. I love the idea of pairing this with a super easy DIY that will also save me money in the long run. By using the ingredients below, the results are higher quality than a lot of store bought lip balms. You can easily make this in bulk to stock up for the winter or as neat gifts for friends!

Easy DIY lip balm refill tutorial. Don't buy expensive lip balm - Make Your Own with just a couple ingredients. High quality and easy to make!

I bought the beeswax and essential oil on Amazon, as these aren’t the easiest items to find at the store.  Since the beeswax came in a block, I use a cheese grater to measure out 2 teaspoons. When possible I try to select the items on Amazon that are eligible for ‘Amazon Prime’ which means the item has two day shipping for FREE (the Amazon Prime items tend to be cheaper as well). If you’re not an Amazon member and want to try out prime, you can try out a 30 day trial here.

If you’re using a used EOS lip balm, screw off the top and pop out the middle with a knife. Wash out all three pieces. If you’re struggling to remove the remaining lip balm, pour a little bowling water over it. (I strongly recommend doing this step FIRST before you start melting the ingredients in the instructions below. Coconut oil & beeswax re-harden rather quickly, so you’ll want your lip gloss container ready.)

Easy DIY lip balm refill tutorial. Don't buy expensive lip balm - Make Your Own with just a couple ingredients. High quality and easy to make!

Combine the beeswax and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 1 minute or until melted, but not boiling.

Then add a small slice of your lipstick to add a pop of color and your favorite essential oil. Break open a vitamin E capsule and add in the liquid contents.

Put back in the microwave for 15-30 more seconds until everything is melted and stir.

Screw the top (round) and middle piece of your EOS together and pour the mixture in. Fill it all the way to the top of the container. It’s OK if it flows over a bit!

Pop the base back in, keeping it upside down. Then place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.  An easy way to keep it from tipping over in your fridge is to place it in an egg carton.

This recipe is for one EOS refill, but you can easily increase it. Just make sure to use equal amounts of coconut oil & beeswax. The rest of the ingredients can be measured out to your preference!

Clean your coffee maker with just 2 ingredients found in your kitchen! Takes only 5 minutes! Part of our 'Fast Fix Friday' weekly series.

Clean your coffee maker with just 2 ingredients found in your kitchen! Takes only 5 minutes! Part of our 'Fast Fix Friday' weekly series.
Apparently the amount of coffee I drink doesn’t correlate to the frequency that I clean my coffee maker. Even though I drink about a pot a day (I know, it’s gross), the last time I cleaned my coffee pot was over a year ago (yes, that’s even grosser). I remember that because when I cleaned it, I used vinegar. Super popular and there’s about a zillion Pinterest pins about it. Unfortunately for me, even though I rinsed and rinsed, the vinegar smell and taste lingered for days in my coffee maker. I thought I’d have to wait days until I drank another cup of coffee… and then I remembered I live in Seattle, the home of coffee, literally on every block.

But what I did learn that I won’t use vinegar again.

Fortunately there’s another solution, and as you guessed ….. it can be done in 5 minutes!

Clean your coffee maker with just 2 ingredients found in your kitchen! Takes only 5 minutes! Part of our 'Fast Fix Friday' weekly series.

All you need is:

  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup baking soda

Pour baking soda in to the coffee pot full of water. Mix with a spoon. With your coffee maker turned on, pour the baking soda water through the coffee maker and run the coffee maker as normal (minus a coffee filter). Once its finished running, pour the hot baking soda water back in the tank and run through the process two more times.

Part of our 'Fast Fix Friday' weekly series.Then use a sponge or rag to clean out the inside of the coffee pot with the baking soda water still inside (the baking soda will help remove the coffee residue more easily).

Dump out the baking soda water, rinse and add fresh water to the coffee pot. Pour in the lemon juice and run through the coffee maker one last time.

and ….

TADA! Coffee maker cleaned! No vinegar smelling coffee maker, no running to Starbucks needed.

To celebrate, I made a cup (errr… pot) of coffee. Caffeinated Lindsay = happy.

Easy to make natural Garbage Disposal Tablets that you can freeze for quick use! The best part? You make with ingredients from your kitchen!I think of myself as a rather obsessed cleaning nut. I like neatness and order with everything in its place. My sock door is organized and my fridge is clean. But honestly, who ever cleans their garbage disposal? Not this girl….until our kitchen started smelling like sh*t and I had no idea why. It was spotless; not a crumb to be found. Sure enough, it was the drain. So I did what every 30 something working professional does.

I called Mom.

Well… here’s her secret sauce. Best part (besides that my kitchen no longer smells)? You can make it SO easily with items you already have in your kitchen. It’s basically free.  The double whammy? You can make it in bulk.

INGREDIENTS

  • Distilled white vinegar
  • Citrus fruit peels (use ANY that you want – lemons, limes, grapefruit, oranges, etc)
  • Ice cube tray

A note on the fruit peels: If you don’t want to waste a perfectly good fruit on this, wait until you actually eat the fruit and then throw the peels in a plastic bag and place in the freezer until you have at least 2 or 3 full fruit peels.

Easy to make natural Garbage Disposal Tablets that you can freeze for quick use! The best part? You make with ingredients from your kitchen!

Chop up citrus fruit peels in to small pieces. Remember, this is going in your garbage disposal so perfect knife skills are NOT important. Thank goodness!

Stuff the fruit pieces in to each tray cube about 3/4 of the way full.

Then fill  with the distilled white vinegar.

Pop in the freezer overnight.

You can definitely use any standard ice cube trays, but  really like these because they’re rubber and bendable so it’s super duper easy to pop the cubes out of. (I also use these ice cube trays to freeze all sorts of other things like herbs, juices, etc.)

When possible I try to select the items on Amazon that are eligible for ‘Amazon Prime’ which means the item has two day shipping for FREE (the Amazon Prime items tend to be cheaper as well). If you’re not an Amazon member and want to try out prime, you can try out a 30 day trial here.

Then throw these in to a LABELED plastic sandwich bag (something like “DO NOT EAT – Garbage disposal tablets”). You can envision what I’m trying to prevent. Ugh. Getting shivers just writing this.

Now when you go to clean your garbage disposal (aka when your kitchen starts to smell and you can’t figure out why), simply turn on the hot water, pop a couple of these down the drain, and flip on the disposal.

DONE! Problem solved.

Thanks Mom 🙂
