Life hacks are defined by urban dictionary as;
A tool or technique that makes some aspect of one’s life easier or more efficient.
We meet again. The lazy inner girl in me and the outside world expectations. I thought we would just note some of the hacks that I have discovered.
- When doing laundry just put all t-shirts on coat hangers. You won’t have to fold them after and they will not crease.
- Put all your important items next to the door. I put my wallet, keys, phone and diary so I can pick them up and go and it makes me double-check I have them.
- If you are the first one up in the morning then put toast in the toaster and coffee in a cup. Then you can just put the toast down and turn the kettle on.
- Use a tick tack box to keep all of your bobby pins in one place.
- Extra plunger coffee?? Put it into an ice-cube tray and freeze. Top with milk when you want a cold coffee.
- Give someone a plant as a gift. If they do not water it you can call them a savage killer.
- Think push ups are too easy? Slow them down so that it takes 4 seconds to go down and 4 seconds to come up. Then tell me they are too hard. Strong is the new sexy.
- Moving house? Put together a bag of things you will need the first night. Toothbrush, hair brush, towel, change of clothes, medication, chargers and a speaker so you can jam to tunes.
- Make your wardrobe colour coordinated. If you don’t know what is in your wardrobe then you should have a clear out.
- DOWNLOAD Sleep Cycle App. You can thank me later when you have only had four hours sleep.
- If you are over the age of 14 then you should have a diary. It may be March but it is never too late to start.
- Keep a jar inside of your car. Place all loose change in as you find.
- Feeling stressed. Place your legs up the wall and lie on your back.
- Always check the shoe. For spiders and cockroaches. (Thanks Kerryanne)
- Get Uber. Public transport is never sweeter.
