Most Useful Life Hacks

  • Use a Ketchup bottle as a batter dispenser next time you make pancakes. Not only can you control the size better, it's also an easy cleanup.

  • Rubbing a lime on your forehead will cure your headache (...or it will help, at least.)

  • If a gas pump handle is broken, place your gas cap in the handle for hands free pumping.

  • If a disk is skipping, rub a peeled banana over it to seal the scratches.

  • Use chapstick on paper cuts (after you clean it).
  • When ordering ice coffee, order your ice in a separate cup. You'll get more coffee for your dollar.
  • If you say the wrong thing on a voicemail, press the # button to erase it and re-record your message.
  • Save the envelopes from your parking tickets. Next time you're in a non-parking zone slip the envelope under your wiper. This one isn't 100% fool proof, but it might discourage them from checking your plate!
  • Flip a coin next time you have to make a hard decision. It won't tell you what to choose, but it will tell you if you're disappointed in the outcome, revealing what you really want.
