Wengie shares a hack to get the air out of freezer bags by using a bowl filled with water. You place the bag in the water leaving only the seal out; while in the water seal the bag. Another hack is how to hang pictures using a fork. Stick the fork prongs on top of the nail with the handle hanging away from the wall.
