Share Your Life Hack Tips That Really Work

We, humans, are always coming up with new, and sometimes better, ways to do the mundane tasks that constitute everyday life. And here at GR8NESS, we certainly agree. We always feel that if we could shave a little time off of these tasks, we’d have so much more time to do “other things.”

The best life hacks give us easy, elegant ways to stay organized and being productive. In short, they make life better. But do all these life hacks work, or take up more of our most valuable commodity: time?

Life Hacks We’ve All Tried Before

Say you tried making a grilled cheese sandwich in your toaster? At best, you have to clean up a gooey, inedible cheesy mess. At worst, you end up having to buy a new toaster. That’s a life hack that could cost you both time and money. I guess you could call it an anti-life hack.

While we’re on the subject of anti-life hacks, toilet paper rolls don’t make good phone speakers. The sound isn’t made any louder. It gets muffled. Use a bowl; instead, it projects the music up and out instead of trapping inside all that cardboard.

Are you placing a wooden spoon across a pot of boiling water to keep it from spilling over? Nope. Are you storing batteries in the fridge to make them last longer? Are you using a ketchup bottle as a pancake batter dispenser? Cutting cherry tomatoes between to lids (what the … ?) Nope, nope, and nope.

Are Life Hacks Useless?

That’s not to say that all life hacks are bogus or cause us to waste time and money. Are you cleaning your stovetop with baking soda and lemon? Works. But do you want to ruin your toaster if you can learn from someone else’s experience?

Do you have a life hack tip that works? What about the one you’ve tried that doesn’t? We want to know. We’ll be sharing your hacks or anti-hacks with the GR8NESS community soon.
