18 Simple Hacks That Will Make Any Lazy Person's Life Easier

Lazy is just a state of mind.

1. If your disposable razor is going dull run it across your jeans before shaving and it will be sharp again.

A ton of YouTube videos tell you exactly why this works, but the gist is that if you "shave" your jeans back and forth a dozen or so times it sharpens the blades and re-adjusts them back into place.

Doing a little bit of planning at night can help you make use of clothes you maybe haven't worn in a while. It can also encourage you to put together more outfits you love.

7. If you don't have a work uniform, create one...

Having a loose "uniform" will take the guesswork out of getting ready in the morning helping you to catch more Z's or hit the gym.If you're one of the guys who hates shopping, finding things that really work for your body type and personal style is super important as well. It will mean less time spent in the stores and more time doing whatever it is that you want to.

8. Try wearing your gym clothes to bed.

Life hack for my fellow lazy people trying to commit to morning exercise: go to bed dressed for the gym. You're welcome.

If you wake up and you're already dressed for the gym, it'll be much harder to skip. Change your habits and you'll change your life.

9. Sign up for a subscription box for things like underwear.

Companies like MeUndies and others will send you a few pairs of underwear every month. This way you don't have to actually enter a store and you don't have to ever wear holey underwear ever again. For the small price of $16, you'll receive a fresh pair each month with no headache.If you want something cheaper, you can pay $9 a month and Lootcrate will send you a pair every month.

10. Make a playlist that's the same amount of time it takes for you to get ready. When the music is done you'll know its time to go.

11. When you're packing a suitcase for a trip, roll your clothes instead of folding them.

Rolling allows you to get more into your suitcase or bag, the rolled clothes also double as padding for any fragile items you may want to bring with you.

12. Get two small hampers, one for darks and one for lights. It'll make doing laundry even simpler.

If you always wait until the last minute to do laundry, it'll be a lot easier to just dump the load in without having the separate your lights, colors, and darks. Just get a bigger hamper and keep yourself organized.You can grab this in either black or brown from Amazon for $15.91.

Believe it or not your dishwasher can clean more than just dishes. Take for example, food, plastic children's toys, hats, window screens, flip flops, and a ton of other things. Just make sure if it's something that's super grimey, you run an empty cycle to fully get all the gunk out.

14. Lint rollers double as good dusters if you don't feel like running out to buy more cleaning products.

Lint rollers aren't just for your clothes. They're for getting dust off your furniture, lamp shades, cleaning hard to reach places around the house, and a ton of other miscellaneous areas. You can grab a twin pack of lint rollers from Amazon for $9.48.

16. Whenever you have to hang something on the wall do this:

This one's pretty self-explanatory, but the best way to hang something is to photocopy the back of it. That way you'll know exactly where you need to place the holes that you can't see.

17. Get an automatic toilet lid so your lady friend will never have to complain about you leaving the seat up.

Typically these are super easy to install, they're more hygienic, and some can even warm your butt too.

Unfortunately they aren't too cheap, but can you put a price on peace of mind?

Amazon has one (with a bidet) for $359, or you could just remember to put the seat down ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

18. Finally, use a can of Coke to clean your toilet.

If you don't have any cleaning solution around and your toilet looks like shit (pun intended), pour a can in there and let it sit for a while. All the acid in the drink will get rid of the stains with just a flush. It looks gross, but it really works.
