I Must Confess…Life Hacks

I must confess that I have set this prompt purely for my own ends this week.

I know – shock, horror!

With my last week of work looming I am eager to find ways to make my life easier and less mundane when I’m based fully at home.

You can probably guess then that I possess no life hacks of my own. Quite frankly, I’m not all that smart or clever to come up with quick and ingenious ways to get through the never ending tasks of daily life.

Usually I’m way more interested in just gritting my teeth and getting through as many of those tasks as I can. Blinkers on. No time to stop and find an easier way.

Which is probably why I have got myself in the stressed state that I seem to be perpetually in 😉

So let’s change that.

While I have no life hacks of my own, I do take my confession research very seriously. So I consulted the bible of life hacking, Life Hack, and came away with the following ideas that could be very useful to us all…

BBQ Hack

BBQ Lifehack

Beach Hack

Beach Life Hack

Cleaning Hack

Cleaning Lifehack

Memory Hack
Friend Lifehack

Cooking Hack

Kitchen Life Hack

Wine Hack

Sanity Lifehack

Grocery Hack

Shopping Lifehack

Tech Hack

Tech Lifehack

Kitchen Hack

Treat Lifehack

I’m very much inspired by all of these simple and clever ideas yet still unable to come up with any of my own 🙁

What about you? What life hacks do you have to share? I’m ready and waiting to hear them (and quite possible steal them!)

The Rules…

  1. I’m sure I could make a list of 101 things but I’ve been a bit preoccupied with Perth Fashion Festival this week. I rather like next week’s prompt it’s right up my alley. 🙂

      You’ll have to record your life hack ideas one day – I’m always on the lookout for ways to make my life easier and seems there are many others out there like me as well!

  2. I’m going to try the post it note one, my keyboard is a shocker!

  3. I like the iPhone idea, but I’ll do it the other way around. I’ve still got the first season of West Wing that I borrowed from someone and I can’t figure out who!

    • Kirsty says:

      Hahaha! I just don’t borrow things anymore – it creates more stress for me as I’m paranoid I will lose it or forget who to give it back to. Great idea though, isn’t it?

  4. Michelle says:

    The iced tea idea is genius! I’m totally trying that one.

  5. Great tips – the post it note one and the earphone one I will put into practice straight away! I went off topic this week,b ecause as luck would have it I shared my “life hacks” (or laundry ones anyway) on the blog on Friday before I checked what the prompt was for today!

  6. They’re all brilliant ideas especially the sunscreen one! I have no life hacks except shaking out my washing really well so I don’t have to iron it when it’s dry.

  7. Ness says:

    I like some of these! Especially the muffin tin one. Of course it would be the one related to food that would take my fancy. Ahem. Great tips.

    • Kirsty says:

      Nothing wrong with that Ness! I wish there was a proven hack to make dinner for you, with no effort at all. I will keep on dreaming…

  8. I like the beach one. I’ve also heard of taking a nappy and rolling your stuff up in that to make it look like a dirty nappy.
    Toni @ Finding Myself Young recently posted..We’re spinning around with Playgro

    • Kirsty says:

      I’m sure the nappy idea would catch a few people out. I just wish I had a fraction of the creativity of some of these people – geniuses!

  9. Bec says:

    So doing some of these – the coffee ice cubes fo sho. Lovely post of little hacks! x

      I’ve loved this prompt but embarrassed that i have none of my own to share. Have loved checking out everyone else’s though – hopefully I will come up with something awesome when I’m at home… #probablynot

  10. As I read your piece, I had an old post-it note next to the keyboard. But it was no use cleaning my Apple Mac keyboard. Another example of Apple-PC incompatibility!

  11. Deborah says:

    Oh! I clean my keyboard with post-it notes. I thought it was my ingenious idea…. #alas.
    Deborah recently posted..It’s Monday. What am I reading?

    • Kirsty says:

      You are far more creative than most of us Deborah. Keep on claiming it for you and if you happen to come up with any more brilliant ideas send them my way #notcreativeoverhere

  12. BBQ condiments in a muffin tray – GENIUS! Getting onto the iced coffee/tea idea too.
    Kaz @ Melting Moments recently posted..Pitango Free Range Chicken and Vegetable Soup – So good, you might tell a little fib.

    • Kirsty says:

      They are all rather marvellous ideas – the ice cube one is particularly awesome. I actually like the one for earphones – I’m always fumbling about trying to work out which earbud is left or right. This idea could save me a good bit of fumbling…

  13. Hugzilla says:

    Bahahaahaha that sauce bottle one made me laugh. Just buy the premade pancake shaker bottles, meme dude!

    Hi Kirsty, I am late to the party again but thought I would linkup a post a wrote a week or two ago about WAHM Life Hacks. Amazing how we never think of these easy and clever life hacks ourselves!
    Lisa recently posted..How to change careers when you are stuck…

  19. Ha ha some actually great ideas in there, even the coffee ice cube one! But the one about the photo of stuff you have lent someone is a FAB idea! I’m a dork that has never heard of Life Hacks! Thanks for linking (and sorry for my tardiness I’m out of the country – sounds exotic doesn’t it? It’s not x

  21. mmm, mine probably is that I don’t fold the kids clothes. I just sort them into different baskets and they put there own clothes away. The clothes always end up in a mess in there cupboards so I sick of attempting to make them first neat and tidy. A nice bonus is that a couple of them now value folding their clothes and will do it themselves as they put their clothes away.
