1. The Wrap Hack

Okay, so if you haven’t seen the wrap hack yet, you’re going to be seriously impressed (and hungry!)

You can make use of this wrap hack for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or all three – it’s all down to you.

All you need to do is grab a pack of tortilla wraps from your local supermarket, and fillings of your choice.

According to BuzzFeed, @ellcarter1 on Tik Tok was the bloomin’ genius that came up with this idea, and we seriously thank her!

Make a cut from the middle of the tortilla down to one edge, and fill each quarter of the wrap with your chosen fillings.

Then, fold it up into a neat triangle and grill (or eat as is) but we’d deffo grill if you’ve got cheese on it for melty yumness.

It’s basically a bit like a quesadilla, but the beauty of it is that you can literally put whatever you want on it!

So whether you fancy a mini fry-up in your wrap, ham & cheese, southern fried chicken or even Nutella – the world is your oyster 😉.

2. The Jeans Hack

Are your jeans a little too baggy now? Don’t worry! This jeans Tik Tok hack has got you covered – it seriously works!

All you need to do is get the button on your jeans, loop it through a belt hole and then do up your jeans.

@viluong has a Tik Tok explaining what to do, but it’s proper simple to follow, don’t worry!

Put it this way, it basically means you don’t have to purchase new jeans if you’ve lost a bit of weight, which is a winner in itself.

Grab your bag for life and fold it in half landscape, then fold it again, and a third time, then fold it triangular and loop the handles through.
