Life Hacks

Time-saving, efficiency-producing hacks really can make a world of difference in everyday life, depending what they are. Often times, hacks that are introduced to us seem obvious and understandable, yet it can be difficult to spot these hacks for ourselves sometimes. These hacks come from lifehacks and will arguably make your life a little easier, in one way or another.

  • When traveling, tie a piece of bright colored ribbon to your luggage to make it easier to spot in the airport.
  • If you want to scribble out something you’ve written, write random letters over-top to make what you wrote obscure.
  • Tape a dryer sheet over top of an air-conditioning vent to give a space a fresh scent.
  • Rub beeswax over material to make it waterproof.
  • Use old, discarded newspapers at the bottom of your garbage to absorb any liquids.
  • USe an old muffin container to store Christmas decorations or delicate pieces.
  • To determine whether or not batteries still have any juice in them, drop them on a hard surface six inches above it. If they bounce a lot, they’re likely bad. If they only bounce once and fall over, they’re good to go.
  • Wrap a charger for a phone or laptop in a pen coil to prevent it from tangling.
  • Use an old ketchup bottle for a pancake-batter dispenser.
  • Use a muffin baking tin to serve condiments.
  • Colour-code your keys with nail polish to avoid confusion.
  • Remove strawberry stems with a straw.
  • Cut an old toilet paper roll length-wise and use it to store wrapping paper to keep it from coming loose.
  • Place your phone in an empty glass to increase the sound of an alarm in the morning.
  • Put panty-hose over the end of a vacuum to prevent sucking up small items such as jewelry.
