Last Minute Spring Break Ideas

“Wait…spring break is in a week!!?!” I yell to my roommates as I sit down with a solo cup filled to the brim with Sutter Home Riesling.

Get rid of the clutter and organize your space in under 15 minutes with this simple tutorial! Candles are too expensive not to re-purpose them in any way possible.
