As a follow-up to a recent post working with Net10 Wireless, I’ve created some more images to illustrate another life hack for college students. You can still enjoy old posters and artwork long after their corners and edges have been torn or ruined by tacks and tape. Just cover books with them! It works great with ripped maps and charts. Plus, it’s a great hack for storing old books in plain sight. (Hint hint: that ugly econ textbook, maybe?)
To cover the book, simply trim enough of the poster so that you can fold it in on all sides; then, slip the edges of your hardback into the sleeves. I’m still doing this today, recycling books and posters to create decorative little vignettes around the house. They give a room a bit of personality and, best of all, I get to continue enjoying my old posters and artwork.
[See, life hacks don’t have to be super complicated. If you’re 18+, quick-hurry-run and submit your idea to the #Net10CollegeHacks Tumblr before this Sunday, October 19. You’ll be entered for a chance to win prizes like a tablet & smartphone prize pack enabled with Net10 Wireless service, or a grand prize of $5,000 toward a dorm room makeover. No purchase necessary; here are the full rules to enter. Have fun!]
