Stop stepping on your ladder and use it as a scarf storage device instead.

Have a bottle of nail polish for every color in the rainbow? Organize them on a magnetic display board.

Why buy wallpaper when you can just use your photo collection?

Some shopping bags are just too beautiful to throw away: frame them.

You *could* put your empty bottles in the recycling bin… but you should probably turn them into an insanely awesome wall for your patio instead.

This photographer used frames (upon frames) to display his vintage camera collection.

It’s impossible to resist the charms of vintage suitcases, but what do you use them all for? Storage.

While globes are glorious, they’re not particularly useful—keep them somewhere high.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to putting together a plate wall, but this asymmetrical, door-framing arrangement is especially cool.

23 Psychological Life Hacks You Need To Know

#1. When you first meet people, try to notice their eye color while also smiling at them. It might be because you look for a second or two longer, but all I can tell you is that people really respond to it.

#2. Pay attention to people’s feet. If you approach two people in the middle of a conversation and they only turn their torsos and not their feet, they don’t want you to join in the conversation. Similarly, if you are in a conversation with a coworker who you think is paying attention to you and their torso is turned towards you but their feet are facing in another direction, they want the conversation to end.

#3. Foot-in-the-door phenomenon. People are more likely to agree to do a task for you if you ask them to do something simpler first. (Gradual commitment makes people think you like them.)

#4. Alternatively, you ask them to do an unreasonable task and they’ll say no. So then you should ask for a more reasonable task and they will be more likely to agree.

#5. If you ask someone to do you a small favor, cognitive dissonance will make them believe that because they did that favor, they must like you. (Ben Franklin)

#6. If you ask someone a question and they only partially answer just wait. If you stay silent and keep eye contact they will usually continue talking.

#7. Chew gum when you’re approaching a situation that would make you nervous. I can’t remember where I heard it, but apparently if we are ‘eating’ something in our brains trip and it reasons ‘I would not be eating if I were danger. So I’m not in danger.’ This has helped to calm me a few times.

#8. Avoid the sidewalk shuffle by looking intently over the person’s shoulder or between people’s heads in a group. Your gaze shows them where you’re going. They’ll drift toward the opposing side and create a gap to avoid you.

#9. When you’re studying/learning something new, teach a friend how to do it. Let them ask questions. If you’re able to teach something well, you understand it.

#10. People will remember not what you said, but how you made them feel.
