1.Keep knives sharp

Store knives upside down in a countertop knife block (blades facing upward) to keep them from dulling. After chopping, transfer food to a pan or bowl using the back of a knife rather than drawing the blade across the cutting board, causing it to dull quicker. And remember kids, a sharp knife is a safer knife.

2.Getting Rid of Ants

For an effective organic ant repellent, scatter talcum powder liberally around house foundations and known points of entry, such as doors and windows. Other effective organic repellents include cream of tartar, borax, powdered sulfur, and oil of cloves. You can also try planting mint around the house foundations.

Labels are a great way to help you organize your kitchen. You can even put the labels on the tops of jars so that when you store them in a drawer you can take the guesswork out of which container you want.

4. Use Drawer Inserts

One of the problems with keeping a kitchen drawer organized is the ineffective use of space. Too many times people just throw all the kitchen utensils and tools in haphazardly. Use drawer inserts to make it easy to sort utensils, cooking tools and more, allowing each to be more accessible.

5.Seal A Chip Bag

The hack is extremely simple and involves rolling down the top of the packet a few times, folding in the corners, and then fold the rolled area back in the opposite direction so it folds over the top of packet.

Or, if you’re imgur user Clerkenwell “just fold the top in half a sit it upside down. Eat the stale chips later like the disaster I am.”

Whatever works for you.
