12 Life Hacks That Are Too Good To Share

Shhhh! Keep these to yourself. Just like Taco Bell’s Loaded Grillers, they’re #TooGoodToShare.

1. If you’re having trouble hanging something with precise holes…

…photocopy the item, and use the image as a template on the wall.

2. If you keep bumping into things after getting a glass of water in the middle of the night…

…keep one eye closed when you enter the bright kitchen. When you go back into your dark room, your closed eye will have retained its night vision, and BOOM. Your eyes are adjusted.

3. If your pots and pans have those stubborn stains…

…pour equal parts white vinegar and water into the pot or pan, then bring to a boil. That gunk will come right off.

4. If you’re nervous about sending an important email…

BuzzFeed

…put the recipient in the subject line. That way, you wouldn’t send it accidentally before proofreading. Those typos, man, they’ll getchya.

5. If you’re trying to save your bag of chips until later…

BuzzFeed

…use a pen. Or a plastic fork.

6. If you can’t get all the pasta sauce out of the sauce bottle…

…pour some cooked pasta into the jar, swish it around, and say hello to a meal and a clean jar.

7. If your banana is green but you want to eat it NOW…

…put it in a paper bag with a tomato, and then close it. It’ll ripen twice as fast.

8. If you’re sick of getting those marketing emails all the time…

…do a search of all your emails with the word “unsubscribe.” Then just pick ‘em off one by one.

9. If you’re having trouble reaching everything in your fridge…

BuzzFeed

…put a lazy Susan in there.

10. If you’re questioning how old your bread is once you’ve bought it…

BuzzFeed

…look at the color of the bread clip. It’ll tell you what day it was baked. (The same color system applies to twist ties.)

11. If you can’t seem to find exactly what you’re looking for on the internet…

BuzzFeed

…use the “related:” tag in Google. It’ll give you all websites that are similar in content to the one you searched.

12. If you keep breaking your nails trying to put keys on your keychain…

BuzzFeed

…use a staple remover. Easy peasy.

Treat yourself to Taco Bell’s Loaded Grillers. They’re appetizers for one and they’re #TooGoodToShare.
