Woman Shares the Best Hack For Wrapping Presents This Christmas
Wrapping presents can be a stressful ordeal. You're trying to neatly fold, all the while juggling four fingers worth of cellotape and attempting to not pick up half your living room carpet with it.
Well fret no longer, as we have a hack to make your life that little bit easier this Christmas.
Shared on Facebook Group Extreme Budget & DIY Life Hacks by user Amanda Coulter, the hack tackles the most annoying task of all in wrapping: keeping the roll in place.
"I hate wrapping presents at the best of times. No more paper rolling back at you. A simple mop handle stops me from loosing my S**t," writes Amanda.
All you need to do is find yourself a mop handle and feed it though the wrapping paper roll. Next, just hold it in place between two chairs - possibly as part of a dining table - and voila! Your roll won't roll back at you.
Simple eh? And it seems as if fellow Facebook users appreciated the tip.
"Why wasn't this posted a few weeks ago. That would of saved me drinking 3 bottles of wine!!," said one person.
"My gripe was the bloody sellotape sticking to everything but the bloody parcel," shared another. "What a brilliant idea," raved a third.
