Growing up, I was a walking, talking prune.

Every year, all summer long, if you needed to find me, you’d know to look no further than our little pool. The only thing that could drag me out were trips to the bathroom, a drink of cold soda, and of course bedtime.

But if I knew about this incredible trick, I don’t think I ever would have gotten dry.

Without a doubt, there are tons of amazing do-it-yourself tricks out there, but this one has got to be one of the most brilliant I’ve ever seen.

And to do it, all you’ll need is a cheap plastic tub, a pool noodle, and a bit of string to make your very own floating cooler.

It costs less than $5 and takes only about 30 minutes to assemble. Seems like a pretty good deal for a revolutionary trick, right?

Who knew an old pool float could have so many incredible uses?
