16 Basic Life Hacks Everyone Should Know


There are enough unexpected obstacles in everyday life. A few basic life hacks can make the simple things even simpler. A few things lying around the house could help you out in unexpected ways, including:

  • Bobby pins,
  • Post-its,
  • Stickers.

Life is complicated enough as it is, embracing these basic hacks will help you with the simple problems in life so you can focus on the big ones.

Here are 16 basic life hacks everyone should know.

1. If you’ve ever lent a pen to a classmate or colleague, chances are, you didn’t get it back. Pens get stolen all the time, but one way to avoid this is to take out the blue ink and place it in a red pen. No one steals a red pen.

2. Before you throw out your tube of toothpaste, make sure you’re not wasting any! Use two bobby pins to slide up the tube so don’t miss out on any fresh minty-goodness.

3. It doesn’t take long for keyboards to get dirty, but Cheetos lovers rejoice! Post-it notes are a great little tool to clean the hard to reach areas of your keyboard. The sticky strip will collect all of that grime that used to call your fingertips home.

4. If your closet has no room for your hangers to slide, try using a soda can tab to create some more hanging room. Slide a tab onto a hanger and you get an additional hole to throw another one on.
