I have a new obsession…. life hacks! What exactly is a life hack, you ask?
These are the tips you read on line and you hit your hand on your head and say “OMG, SO smart!…. How did I not know that??”
There are THOUSANDS of life hacks out there! There are hundreds of websites with tons of life hacks. However, I have sifted through these sites and am sharing some of my favorites. I have found the best site for life hacks to be 1000lifehacks.com, (although they are well over 1000 now!)
Wash kids Legos in mesh bag from Gettinby – I am SO excited about this! I hate washing legos, but they get totally yucky dirty! This will make cleaning them super easy! Goes right along with my OCD!!
Cut ice cream with a knife when serving to a crowd from Real Simple – I HATE scooping ice cream at my kids birthday party! I started using ice cream cups, but my kids don’t really like them… they like the “fun” ice cream! This is a great way to get your cake and eat it too (ha, ha, ha!!)
Use Airheads to cutout letters for Birthday cake from Studio DIY – I CANNOT write with those little gel decorator pens – I totally stink at it! This is absolute genius!! This will happen!
Fill water balloons and freeze them as a cooler – Pretty and practical – two of my favorite things!!
Place freezer pops upright for an clean cut from lifehacksdaily.com – This is just one of those things that annoys me. I hate the sound of cutting ice. Don’t judge!
Magnetic cups for fridge from Adventures in Pinteresting – We go through 1000 cups a day. I don’t understand it, all of a sudden I will turn around and my entire top rack of the dishwasher is totally full! I absolutely LOVE this idea!!!
Cut a sticker in half to help with left and right shoe from One Creative Housewife – This will end the problem of your child walking out of the house with his shoes on the wrong feet! Problem solved!!
Dollar bill to measure 6 inches from Thread Magazine – I NEVER knew this! This one will for sure come in handy!
Rubber band on paint can from Martha Stewart – WHY didn’t I ever think of this one? I HATE when the paint can gets all drippy!
Marshmallow in Brown Sugar to Keep it Soft from Real Simple – This is a game changer if it works!!
