Do you know how to use one of these things? You may think that using a stapler is pretty self-explanatory but, do you really know how to use it? You put a piece of paper in the middle and squeeze, right?
That seems right, but did you know that the bottom of the stapler has a function as well? See that little square on the bottom right? That helps keep the staples in place right? Sure, but did you know that you can flip it around for bigger staples or keep it as is for smaller ones depending on your collation needs? Mind blown right? So what other everyday things are we using all wrong?
Don't you hate how small those little paper cups are for your ketchup? How could you possibly get enough ketchup in just one of them? Well, you could if you were actually using the little cup correctly. Why didn't someone tell us this earlier?
I know what you are thinking. How is it possible that you don't know how to use a straw. Well... you don't. Drinking through a straw makes drinking soda so much more fun but don't you hate when the straw keeps floating up though? Well, apparently that is what that hole in the tab is for. Try it and you will up your soda game forever.
Let's move out of the kitchen for a minute. Are you laces too long on your Converse sneakers? Have you ever noticed those holes on the side of your Converse and wondered "what the hell are these for"? Try lacing them through the holes on the side! That is what they are there for. That and to help ventilate your smelly feet.
Okay, so now that we have cleared that up, here are some little life hacks that will make your life so much easier. Let's start with your crazy junk/cord drawer. Is your junk drawer filled with cords? Are they tangled and knotted and all over the place? Try storing them in a box in toilet paper holders and you'll never have to look at that mess again!
Here are some more hacks for around the house. Did you drop an earring on the floor? Are you are having trouble finding it? Try this hack! Put pantyhose or a thin sock over your vacuum. Vacuum as per usual and it will suck that earring up with letting it go down the hose.
Did you want to fill up a bucket to clean the floors but there is no hose in sight? You won't be able to put the bucket in the sink, so try this. Use a dust pan to funnel water from the sink into a bucket below.
Next time you cook, use a hanger with clips to hang up your recipe book. This will free up counter space while keeping your recipe book nice and close to you. This is a hands free solution for your next cooking adventure!
You know how boring it is to watch water boil. Sometimes you want to leave the room and multitask, but if you leave too long the water can boil over. Try this hack and you'll never have that issue again. The spoon will pop the bubbles as the water's boiling and slow the progress of the water spilling over.
