This little trick is an absolute game-changer. If you are anything like us, you like sending out cards with money in them to your relatives when their birthdays roll around.

As it turns out, there is a very simple solution that will keep you from having to tear your envelope to shreds in the process. Once you place the envelope in the freezer for a bit, it will open with ease. The seal opens right up, allowing you to take the letter or card out without any additional issues.
