The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks are going to the NFL’s Super Bowl XLIX, are you ready for some football? Time to start prepping your vehicles with amazing food and drinks! Here are few a tips and tricks that are guaranteed to help you have a successful Super Bowl Sunday!

Have an Mini Emergency Kit Ready

It’s always better to be over prepared than under prepared. In a small Ziploc bag you should have: an assortment of bandages, pain relievers (Advil, Tylenol, and Benadryl), antibacterial wipes, pocket knife or scissors, bottle opener, and of course Super Glue. When you plan to live out of a car for an entire day many things can go wrong. Super Glue is able to repair any broken cooking utensils, equipment and more – and best of all it’s perfect for traveling!

Freeze Your Water Bottles

Instead of filling coolers with tons of ice (which will take up lots of space) – place all your water bottles in the freezer a night or two before and then throw them in your cooler to keep all of your appetizers and delectables cold. This will save you tons of space, and your food will stay nice and cold before all of the ice melts!

Large Plastic Tub

Place all your cookware in a large plastic container. Not only will this make it easier for you to find all your cooking utensils, but it will also make it so much simpler to clean up! Once you are ready to pack up, throw all your dirty dishes back in the container and you won’t have to worry about rinsing them before placing them in your car.

Cut and Pack in Advance

No one wants to spend time cutting up lettuce, tomato, onions and such. Have everything precut and ready to serve. Using foil containers you can easily pack all your items neatly in the container, close the container, place it in a cooler and then toss it in the trash when you’re done!

Whether you are cheering for the Patriots or the Seahawks, have your tailgating gear packed and ready! Share with us your tailgating tips and tricks on our Facebook page.

At the end of 2014, we all came up with our New Year’s resolutions but now halfway through January, how many of us are at the brink of quitting? Your team at Super Glue team is here to offer a few tips to help you super glue yourself to your 2015 New Year’s resolution!

Be Realistic

When creating your goal remain positive and realistic and know that it is completely reasonable to readjust your goal. Many times, we decide to cut out soda from our diet instantly, and then find ourselves failing 2 weeks later. Cutting something out completely may be too extreme, focus on cutting back, only allow yourself soda once every two weeks; this will be something more manageable and it will allow you to give in once in a while without completely abandoning your goal.

Create Mini Goals

Another great way for you to super glue yourself to your resolution is by creating mini goals within your goal. If your resolution is to lose 50 pounds, it may seem daunting and too difficult to tackle. Try setting up short goals on how to reach your weight loss goal. For example, by the end of April, your goal should be to lose 12.5 lbs, and by August you have another 12.5 to go. Using short term goals will give you more of a push and it will help you stick to your resolution!

Buddy System Never Fails

Keeping your New Year’s resolution is directly connected to the positive influences you surround yourself with; it is tough to go at it alone. Find a buddy who has a similar goal as you and you can both work on this goal together. And if you’re not able to find that buddy, surround yourself with positive influences. If your goal is to quit smoking, surround yourself with friends and family that will encourage and support your decision and stay away from those who cause you to break.

Create a Strong Bond with Your Resolution

Don’t quit on your New Year’s Resolution just yet, your team at Super Glue is here to support you and help you make 2015 the best year yet! Share your New Year’s resolution with us and what you are doing to accomplish it on our Facebook page.

 

Save Your Wine Corks!

The holidays have sadly come to an end, but don’t throw away those corks from your wine bottles just yet! Here are few simple and adorable DIY projects you can do using wine corks and super glue. You can create this project for your home or give them as a belated Christmas gift. Everyone will love this project!

What You Need:

Heat Protector Trivets

A trivet is a small plate that is placed underneath a hot pot to protect surfaces and now you can make your own. The best part about this craft is that you can create any design you want. The amounts of corks you need will depend on how big you want your trivet to be. You will also need heavy cardboard stock or wood – any material that won’t melt under hot pans or pots.

Start by cutting your wine corks in half, lengthwise, and then begin placing super glue on the flat surface and placing them on your cardstock or your chosen material. Continue doing so until your entire cardstock is glued with corks. Since super glue dries so easily you can use it right away!

Coasters

This is a great DIY gift everyone will love. Set aside about 8 corks for each coaster and begin pairing them. Using super glue connect two of them together until you have four pairs. You can then glue one pair vertically and the other horizontally, and that’s it! If you are giving these to someone, put them on top of each other and tie it with ribbon for an adorable house warming present!

Cork Magnets

All you need to create your wine cork magnets are a few corks and non-decorated magnets. Start by cutting the wine cork in half and then take your super glue and apply a small amount to the flat end of the cork and add your magnet. Each wine cork can make two magnets. You can paint them or decorate them however you want or you can leave them as is to show off your favorite wine brands.
