1. Tupperware Made Easier

Media Source 

Use a CD rack to organize your tupperware lids. Your drawers will thank us.

2. Toilet Cleaner

Media Source 

Pour Coke in the toilet, and let it sit for an hour.  The acid in the drink will break down stains.  Plus, it’s the only toilet bowl cleaner you can actually drink.

3. Gift Card

Media Source 

Finally, humans outsmart those pesky auto-renewal subscription sites! Honestly, I would have spent this gift card on Netflix, anyways.

4. Shirt Stack

Media Source 

Another great way to see all your clothes: Leave them on the floor!

5. Vacuum Aid

A great way to reach those tiny, uncleanable places.  But it’s not so great if you’re one of those people who likes to clean and make a burger at the same time.

6. Microwave Clean

Media Source 

When life hands you lemons, use them to clean your microwave!

7. Furniture Fixer

Bonus Hack: After working up a sweat repairing all that furniture, you have a ready-to-go wood-flavored snack.

8. Shower Head Cleaner

Media Source 

To be fair, filling a bag with vinegar and tying it around the shower head is, technically, work.  But you can probably handle it.

9. Plastic Bag Holder

Media Source 

Use an old tissue box to hold plastic bags. Then use the plastic bags to pick up your dog poop. Then use a new tissue box to grab a tissue and cry over how your dog pooped on your favorite shoes.

10. Wrapping Paper Organizer

Media Source 

A Christmas Elf’s best friend! Turn an old stool into this gift-giving organizer.

11. Sponge Sanitizer

Media Source 

Also effective – putting a sponge in the dishwasher for a full cycle.

12. Grocery Bag Holder

Media Source 

You can use a carabiner to carry all your groceries at once. All that time you save you can use to eat even more of your groceries.

13. Soda Pop Hack

Media Source 

Tear that soda box in half if it doesn’t fit in your fridge. Although it doesn’t look like there’s much in there to begin with.

14. Ornament Storage

Media Source 

Store your ornaments in old apple containers. Also works with Easter Eggs. Oh, and with Poké Balls. Now you can be the very best…at organizing!

15. Stain Remover

Media Source 

It turns out what cleans dentures can also clean toilets.  You can also kill two birds with one stone and let your dentures soak in the toilet.

16. Blender Clean

Media Source 

Now you can whip out even more margaritas!

17. Shower Door Cleaner

Media Source 

Just soak a dryer sheet in water and use it to wipe the soap scum off the door.  Too bad it doesn’t work on all the scum in your life.

18. Hooks

Media Source 

Or you could not have any pots and pans and just go out to eat every night.

19. Cleaning Supplies

Media Source 

Have you ever noticed that the messiest cabinet in your house is the cleaning supply cabinet?

Irony, be gone!

Make plates for your friends AND store pizza for later. Or just don’t have any friends and you can eat the entire pizza all by yourself.

24. Pen Spring Protection

Media Source 

Protect your charger cords by using a pen spring to keep them from snapping. This will keep you from snapping because your phone won’t die in the middle of Candy Crush.

25. Swinging Doors

Media Source 

Spice up your cubical while adding a little privacy by making swinging doors out of cardboard, tape, and a Sharpie. Loudly playing Country music to the rest of your coworkers– optional.

26. Cord Organizer

Media Source 

Keep tabs of your cords by attaching binder clips to the edge of your desk. And then you’ll finally have something to do with all those binder clips that no one uses anymore.

27. Can Opener

Media Source 

Put this down for your next office supply run! You can open pesky, hard to pull apart plasticized office supplies with a can opener.

Did you leave your toolbox at your CrossFit class? Use a power plug as a flathead screwdriver.

29. Cord Detangler

Media Source 

Recycle your used toilet paper roll! But please don’t recycle your used toilet paper.

Media Source 

Keep your office mail in order by using a spring to hold them together. And also be super excited people are actually sending you real mail! You must be important.

32. Keyboard Cleaner

Media Source 

Post-it Notes.  Is there anything they can’t do?  Well, yes.  But they can clean your keyboard.

33. Airplane Mode

Media Source 

It will also stop you from receiving 20 Facebook notifications to play Farmville with your Aunt Carol.

34. Stronger Password

Media Source 

Much better than just using “password,” or the name of your dog plus the year you were born.

35. Dialing 911

Media Source 

So basically, if you used the last of your paycheck on beer instead of your phone bill, you can still call the police.

36. Stranger Danger

Media Source 

And if they are blaring Carrie Underwood, have a bat and a box full of your stuff, they may be your ex-girlfriend.

37. Wal-Mart Motel

Media Source 

Whatever you do, just don’t actually go IN to the Wal-Mart. The things you’ll see in there will give you such terrible nightmares, you won’t be able to sleep again.

38. Elevator Save

Media Source

Look like a hero when the drunk dude thinks he’s pulled a fast one on everyone in your apartment.

39. Rubber Band Hangers

Dresses, blouses, dress shirts, costumes you made for all the themed parties you’ve been invited to…this life hack does it all.

Just like the “everything” bagel–they should really call them “everything” clips instead of “paper” clips.

45. Muffin Condiment Tray

Media Source 

A great, easy, clean way to serve condiments at your next beach barbecue. And, yes, this means there won’t be any delicious muffins.

46. Outdoor Tent

Media Source 

And if you really want to save money, you can make the table and chairs out of boxes and crates you find in the dumpster outside Home Depot.

47. Pool Party

Media Source 

Bonus points if you can bribe one of your friends to clean up the next day.

48. Hand Saver

Media Source 

And enjoy a tasty Pepsi on the go.
49. Coffee Creamer Containers

Media Source 

You can use coffee creamer containers to, well, contain almost anything. Sorry Tupperware, but that’s what you get for not making my morning smell like vanilla.
50. Popsicle Drip Holder

Media Source 

The only thing that’d make this better?

If there was an actual cupcake in the wrapper.
