Life Hacks (Helpful tips that may blow your mind)

I searched, found a thread, but no pics in it. I realize that there is already the Small Tricks of Life Thread, and I will provide a link here, so as not to step on it's toes.
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...ight=life+hacks



This is the thread for life hacks. Little tips that may improve your life/the way you do things. I recently encountered a lot of these pictures and found some of them to be so simplistically mind blowing. Thought the pit would like to see them as well.

If you post a life hack to contribute to the thread, please post it in picture form. Otherwise this thread is just a lesser duplicate of the small tricks of life thread.

Here are a few that I liked in particular:

Load of pics


Another load

Another load

Edit: wow, didn't realize some of them were more than one image.

I found them to be quite helpful and I actually plan to start using these help clean and organize my home.

Another very useful life hack dump

This is so awesome and simple that I can't believe I haven't thought of a lot of these. The only one I have ever done is the very last one with the soap.

That's how I found them, too. I wonder if there are more out there.

I think these images are a compilation of most of the ones out there. I see those specific groupings thrown around a lot. Still. I use nearly all of that stuff in my bedroom and studio. It's all so cool. And makes me feel so useless.

I can't imagine how much of a genius people think you are when they see all those nifty things being put to use.

These are cool, but kind of everywhere.

At least now I don't have to go searching for them

I already do the shoe cup-holder trick, the dunking Oreos with a fork thing, and the putting your straw through the soda tab trick.

Everything else is new to me and awesome though.
