Water bottles marked with time

Constantly feel parched throughout the day? Hydrate yourself the right way with JewelPie's neat water bottle project. All you'll need is a sharpie to mark the water or blender bottle with different hour intervals throughout the day. Create it so that you drink 200 ml portions of water every hour.

Penny for your thoughts

Actually, make that more than a penny. Every time you work out, put a dollar in a jar and use that money to reward yourself with awesome workout clothes or put it towards the registration fees for a fun race!

Sock it to 'em

It turns out that there is a use for your mismatched socks after all. We know that your dryer somehow, mysteriously sucks up your clothes into laundry oblivion and you're left with lonely, partnerless socks. Transform them into arm bands for your phone!

Battle ropes

You know those ropes at the gym that look like Spartan-worthy material? You can make 'em for yourself. All you'll need is some old fire hose, rope or twine (for the handle), and duct tape! Pretty simple for a pretty intense piece of workout equipment. (Image c/o crossfit4fire)
