1. “Pizza cutters are an underutilized kitchen utensil.”

2. “I use a hairpin to mark the end of my duct tape.”

3. “Chopstick + 2 rubber bands = all the toothpaste in the tube”

4. “Use baking sheets to polish your faucets and other chrome details.”

5. “My odd sock box — every time a lonely sock appears in the washing cycle, it goes here, hoping to one day be reunited.”

6. “Got tired of my family not washing their cups. Now we put bands around them. I end up washing fewer dishes.”

7. “A phone/tablet hack for car passengers”

8. “Organize your stuff with a dab of hot glue and some magnets. I use them all around the house.”

10. “Today, I remembered that if you don’t have a candle, orange skin and olive oil will do it!”

11. “Use those plastic things that come with bread to close chip bags.”

12. “My girlfriend packs her underwear in her socks for each day she won’t be home. I think it’s clever.”
