We all know that life can be tough at times. But when we find some practical solutions to everyday problems, it helps make our lives a little bit easier.
That’s why I’ve compiled 8 practical lifehacks in this blog post that will help you get through your day with less stress and more efficiency!
1) Save time by pre-mixing dry ingredients before cooking:
This way, you won’t have to stop what you’re doing every few minutes to measure out the next ingredient or stir things around on the stovetop.
2) Use a dish drainer:
If dishes pile up in your sink for hours after they come out of the dishwasher because there is no room for them anywhere else, you need to use a dish drainer.
It’s designed specifically for the purpose of getting dishes off your counter and out of your sink!
3) Fold your clothes on the bed:
If you’re like me, and hate folding laundry.do it right next to your dresser instead of standing over a pile. It’s much less daunting!
4) Use a scraper for ice:
The next time you need to scrape the ice off of your windshield, try using an old credit card instead of a metal scraper. It’s gentler on your hands and more effective too!
5) Put a rubber band around your hairbrush to keep it from flying off the counter:
This will work for any grooming tool that you tend to leave on the edge of surfaces.
6) Get a water bottle with an infuser:
If you don’t like the taste of plain old tap water, try adding some fruit to it! This will even out your pH levels and get you closer to drinking eight glasses of water per day.
7) Put some dish soap on a sponge:
If you have grease stains on your clothes or dishes, try this method of cleaning instead! It’s cheaper and more environmentally friendly than harsh chemicals.
8) Put a plastic baggie over your cell phone screen:
If you always find yourself wiping down the fingerprints off your screen after meals, this solution will be much more efficient.
Few more life hacks:
9) Put air freshener in your dishwasher:
If you’re like me and can’t stand the smell of freshly washed dishes, put some essential oil or fragrance beads into a dishwasher packet. The next time it runs, your kitchen will be smelling great!
10) Use the outside of your toilet brush to clean around the rim:
This way, you won’t get water all over your bathroom floor when it runs out.
11) Wash your fruit and veggies in a sink filled with water:
This will help keep you from having to scrub the produce.
12) Clean up spills as soon as they happen:
If you have kids or pets, this can be tough! But it helps make cleaning easier on yourself if you clean right away.
13) Keep all of your vitamins in one spot:
One way that I do this is by using an old pill organizer like ones for people who take daily medications.
It keeps everything organized and makes it easy to know what time every day when I need them!
14) Use ergonomic pens at work (or anywhere really):
They’re designed so that no matter how much pressure you apply, there’s less chance of carpal tunnel syndrome.
And last but not least.
Eliminate clutter before it piles up- Clutter is the number one cause of stress in my life, so I’ve added these two hacks to combat that problem.
Always put things back where they belong when you’re done using them
Clean out your closet once every three months – by doing this often, you can keep track of what items are missing and need to be replaced.
