  1. I saved the “More Life Hacks” pin and it did have some great ideas. However, there are no explanations for the hacks that are pictured! For example: what is the one with a plastic bag and lid and how is it made? What’s in the ketchup bottle? What are the frozen coffee cubes for? Where can I find this info?

  2. I’ve been going through your life hacks and kid’s organization and they are fantastic! I’m definitely saving them to my Pinterest page!

  3. OMGosh…where have been? The things you can do with a tension rod!!! I think I’m having a life hack rush. I also love the toothbrush organizer.

  4. Hi to Jennifer & James
    You guys should do a double blog of funny back & forth humour. That was classic funny reading just the comments! … Oh & the hacks were really good too, I don’t get a few of the end ones that just have the banners, sometimes I just need it to be dumbed right down and spelt out for me. There’s a few of the pics that no matter how hard I looked at them, I just couldn’t see a hack, or am I missing something?

    1. James is really funny! Love his comments!
      Question -which didn’t you get – I am happy to help you with them! I LOVE HACKS!

  5. I don’t understand the purpose of the “Chocolate Chip Water Bottle” hack.
    They package them with just enough for whatever recipe you’re doing.
    1/2 package for recipe, 1/2 package for mouth while making said recipe.

  6. I’m not coming back here because you don’t allow the top banner to be turned off. Screens are SMALL these days, Lady. People don’t have ROOM for that.

    1. There is an UP ARROW on the right end of the banner, click it and it will go away.
      (And I’m sure your kids will open the child proof bottle of anger meds for you if you ask them to.)
