Although wine is a source of water, but the presence of alcohol tends to create adverse effects on the body. Therefore, it is necessary to keep your body hydrated with water.

b) Take a binge
An hour before drinking wine, eat your something or at least some snacks to avoid having an empty stomach to welcome the wine. This will keep you from overindulging and the eventual hangover. The meal or snack you will eat should have bread or pasta.

c) No prescription drugs
Do not via take prescription drugs with your wine. Doing such will only damage your body. If you are under medication, either you drink less or don’t drink at all it this is what the doctor prescribes. Drink less if you really want to save money.

d) Milk
You may drink a glass of milk before taking the wine as long as you are not lactose intolerant. The milk will provide a protective layer to your stomach and it will help you absorb the intoxicant in the wine.

e) Avoid salt
Be aware that salt tends to hasten the process of dehydration. This is a fair warning for margarita and tequila drinkers.

f) Aspirin
An aspirin will help eliminate headache. Avoid taking paracetamol or ibuprofen as a hangover headache remedy. These drugs usually have harmful effects on the body particularly after the ingestion of wine.

g) Avoid dark drinks
If you combine red wine with whiskey, expect a hangover in the morning. Whiskey is better mixed with soda or water. Avoid combining it with cola and tonic.

Hangover is caused by excessive wine intake. If you don’t like hangovers, learn to control yourself. Follow the tips mentioned above and you can avoid getting the terrible feeling that usually comes the morning after a wine party.

Is your walk in closet is filled with items you actually use or has it become a dump site for those items you haven’t figured out a place for yet? Is there a possibility that you don’t have any idea anymore if some kind of creature is already inhabiting your walk in closet? Because a walk in closet is so a lot larger than regular sized closets, you have a lot more options for customizing and modifying it to your liking while having it organized.

Begin by removing everything from your walk in closet then sort through it. This may be the part that is quite a chore, but it is very important if you are serious about getting that space organized. Do away with anything that does not belong in that place. This includes clothes and items that you don’t wear anymore probably because they don’t fit you or they are worn out and outdated plus other items that don’t belong in a walk-in closet. Next classify your items in piles according to how you plan to divide your closet space. Make a list or an inventory of the amount of area you will need for each pile. This will help you decide the types of customized closet equipment that are needed to be installed.

When it comes to customizing your walk in closet, there are limitless possibilities available. Consider adding shelves, shoe racks, clothing rods, cubbies for your accessories, carousels for ties and belts, and hooks for jackets and hats. You may also choose to add a dresser in the walk in closet area.

If you have enough room in your walk in closet, you might want to add a bench or a small chair to help you get dressed. Some people set up an island in the center of their walk in closet. They use the top side as an area to iron and to prepare their clothes for the following day. A full length mirror makes a great and functional addition, too.

Since a walk in closet is very roomy, it may be confusing to figure out the best way to utilize the space available. You could call a professional closet organizer consultant, browse samples in magazines, or use closet organization software to come up with a design that you are satisfied with. The cost of this type of project will vary based on various factors.
