Here are (17) life hacks guaranteed to save you time, money, energy and more. I’m not joking!
If you have kids, if you eat, if you own a cell phone or ever use a hammer and nail, then there is something here for you! Plus some!
Life Hack #1) By placing your phone on airplane mode, it will charge faster. Not sure why…but it’s worth trying!
Life Hack #2) If your toilet will not stop running and you want to prevent a flood, turn the silver knob underneath to your RIGHT. This will shut off the water. **remember: righty = tighty; lefty = loosey
Life Hack #3) This little trick is perfect as the holidays approach. I’m always making a shopping / to-do list and sometimes my gifts are listed on them as well. This way, I know my kiddos can’t see what I’ve purchased. I like it!
Life Hack #4) When flying, it can be difficult to spot your bag on the carousel as it rolls by. But with this little trick, you’ll be able to spot YOUR bag from a mile away. Be sure to use a ribbon that’s a bit more unique…just in case you’re not the only one who read this idea. 🙂
Life Hack #5) For all you handy men and women out there, this is a great hack that will save you time climbing up and down from that ladder. Simply place a large magnet in your pocket and it will hold the nails and screws for you. Keeping your other hand free for the time being!
Life Hack #6) When you lose a small piece of jewelry, try this next time and it just might save the day AND shorten your search. Place a stocking / pantyhose on the end of your vacuum and turn it on.
Life Hack #7) Never lose your gas cap again! Simply place your cap on the handle where the gas pump belongs while you’re pumping. You will HAVE to pick it up to replace the handle. Ta-Da!
