Recently, I came across an article on Twitter, 27 Great Tips for Around the House, thanks to my friend and colleague, Lauren Halagarda. OMG! These lifehacks were pretty cool, like how to peel a banana, pick up broken glass, and how to keep cheese fresher longer.
And, then OMG! again when I found the update to this post, 16 Great Tips for Around the House. Here are four of my favorites from this list:
1. Organize Fishing Tackle. Who knew that you could organize your fishing tackle with a safety pin? [#3 on the list]
2. Save Your Twisty-Ties. Instead of simply collecting thousands of these ties, use them to organize your computer and TV cables.[#5 on the list]
3. Reuse Grocery Bags for Lunches. You know that bag of bags that just about every household has? Well, it’s time to really use them (instead of storing them just in case you might need them). Keep reusing them, but if you find your collection is still too large, take them back to the store. [#10 on the list]
4. Don’t Cry, It’s Just an Onion. Cut back on the tears when you cut an onion by putting in the freezer first for about 15 minutes. [#15 on the list]
