Every year, we get hit with winter. It's unavoidable, unless you live somewhere with no snow. For those of us who don't have that luxury, there are some ways you can survive winter without struggling too hard.

1. Un-stick Your Car

If you ever find yourself with no traction, it's a good idea to keep kitty litter in the car. Putting the gravel-like substance under your tires will allow your tires to grip something and move forward. If that doesn't work, try your floor mats or some salt.

2. Save Your Sweater!

When your favorite sweater starts to pill, it doesn't have to be the end of the world! Use a disposable razor to scrape off the small "fluffs" without damaging the sweater itself!

3. Screw Your Shoes

If you're looking for extra traction on your boots or shoes, get some small screws and insert them in the soles. Remember to get ones that won't go all the way through to your feet! The screw heads will give you extra grip on those slippery sidewalks.

4. Deny The Ice!

Using 2 quarts of rubbing alcohol, 1 cup water and 1 teaspoon of dish detergent, you can make your own liquid de-icer that can be used on your windshield. You can also use 1 teaspoon liquid dish detergent, 1 tablespoon of rubbing alcohol, and 1.5 gallons of water to create prevent your walkway from freezing after shoveling.

5. Deny The Fog, Too!

Using a sock and some odor-free kitty litter, you can stop your windshield from fogging up! Keep the sock filled with kitty litter under your seat or on your dash, and it will absorb the moisture in the air and prevent fogging.

6. Change The Air

In the winter, toggle your ceiling fan so it turns clockwise in the wintertime. This way, it's pushing the warm air from the ceiling down onto you, which keeps you toasty all night long!
