Another simple tip is for fixing that hole in the wall. You might think wall repair is a tedious job, but it’s easier than you think. Just get some spackle, sandpaper, and a putty knife. If you can’t find a putty knife, there are many alternatives out there. Scoop some spackle and spread it over the hole. After it dries, lightly sand the area and done!

Lastly, if you’re worried about what to do with your clothing, there’s no need to remove all your clothes from the hangers and fold them into a suitcase.
