Tip Tuesday 


So the other day I went to the market (or grocery store as my friend once corrected me on) and bought some pickles. Because you know, every once in a while you just need a jar of pickles in your life, right? Anyway, I got back home and wanted to crack open the jar of tangy goodness, but I realized my poor little T-Rex arms didn't have the strength!

Haha! Anyhow since that day, I have attempted to open that jar with all my might every day. Every day, I tell you! I have tried multiples attempts and methods including using my feet strength to hold down the jar while I try to twist the lid off (don't judge!), but all attempts have failed! Until this! I googled: How to open a tight jar. I mean, for anyone who knows me should know that I google everything. I think it's a blessing that we can look up anything in less than 5 seconds, including images of how to open a tight jar.

But basically I tried multiple methods including the wacking the jar with a butter knife method, the running water method, I even contemplated the rubber band method, but I don't know why I've never heard of the rubber gloves method! Brilliant! Anyway, as I'm sure you've concluded I am now a happy camper who can happily access and snack on pickles for the week. Hope my struggles can help any of you who may be having the same real life problems! :) <3, jewlz
