Hey, No peeping!
Keeping your holiday gift list on your iPhone is a great way to make sure you always have it. It’s also a great way for the wrong people to sneak a peek at it. Like your kids. Or your spouse. Well, did you know you could lock your notes? Yup! Just select the note you want to make private. Swipe left and choose the lock icon. Enter a password for it or turn on Touch ID to unlock with your fingerprint. Then go back to your note and click on the open lock at the top right to lock it. Now when you hand over your phone for whatever reason, you don’t have to worry. Your secrets (and shopping list) are safe.
Feel the urge to clear out some space in your place before the holidays hit?
Do it and see if you can make some holiday money while you’re at it. Facebook marketplace is a great place to sell large items locally like furniture. EBay is good for smaller items that are easy to ship like toys. Grab your nicer clothes and accessories and take them to a consignment shop. Donate anything that doesn’t sell. Donations are tax deductible so although it won’t be cash in your hand now, it’ll pay off later. Get ready! The holidays are coming.
