Lifehack: Lid-erature

Did you ever visit a friend’s house and find that they use something in a unique or creative way? Or perhaps you see something demonstrated online showing how an item considered trash can be turned into a useful tool. I think everyone likes to learn about Lifehacks and how to use things creatively.

I use and/or have developed a number of Lifehacks. I haven’t shared one in quite a while so I hope you find these interesting, if not useful.

Many of our “bottles” and jars are now made from recyclable plastic, but most ot their lids, however, are not recyclable. We save some of the lids in a variety of sizes and repurpose them for alternative uses around the house.

This peanut butter container, for example, has a sturdy red lid that is a nice size.

We use the lids as a snack dish of sorts to hold candies or nuts that we enjoy while watching Netflix.

Some lids can be used to hold specialized small portions such as this lid-container holding three morning vitamins.

Then there are times we have a partially filled bottle of wine in the refrigerator. Since red wine is best serve at or near room temperature, we use lids from plastic containers to cover the wine while it warms.

This particular lid was from a container of cheese crumbles.

Lifehack – Keeping Plugs Together

A life hack (Lifehack) is an innovation using easily available components to solve one of life’s annoyances. I am a big fan of life hacks and the one below is no exception. I have been using this one for years. Look at the picture to see how the male and female plugs are united. The tension on both ends of the cord keeps them from becoming unplugged. This has saved me much frustration.
