There are a lot of items we use in our daily lives that we take for granted. We should probably learn to appreciate them more, but they seem so mundane that it’s difficult to even know what they are. Here’s a list of five items that I’ve recently discovered to be very important to my daily life. Of course, by “very important” I mean very useful or very handy. Anyone could live without these things, but they do make life much easier.
Believe it or not, the idea behind this post was inspired by a lint roller. The other day I was wearing black jeans and I glanced down to notice they were covered in hair. Horrified (melodramatic verb), I ran to my room and grabbed my lint roller. Within a few seconds, the hair was gone.
Until this moment, I hadn’t fully understood the value of a lint roller. But now that I do, I carrying one in my purse at all-times. The mini lint roller pictured above is from Forever 21. Its size makes it very convenient for when you’re on the go.
Thank you, lint roller.
Until I started using dry shampoo, I used to dread the day in between hair washes. My roots would feel incredibly greasy, which constantly distracted me. The only thing I could focus on was the fact that my head felt like the inside of a fast food wrapper. Since then, however, dry shampoo has become my saving grace. It keeps my scalp oil and itch-free all day. Additionally, it gives some life to my otherwise limp hair.
Bad breath be gone! Tic Tacs are lifesavers (which is a funny way to describe them given that lifesavers are also candy) when I’m out and about. I know I’ve talked about my love of mint before, but I can’t stress enough how much I appreciate its existence.
We all know that breaking a nail can be incredibly painful. However, more importantly, incredibly frustrating. After trying for months to grow them out, one break ruins them. In this scenario, nail files save the day. While they can’t magically grow your nail back, they make them look somewhat presentable.
I apologize for the short post. I’ve been very busy this week, but I wanted to get something up. Let me know what items you think are unappreciated in the comments. As always, thank you for reading.
Until next time.
