In everyday life we encounter little things that sometimes take a lot of time. Many people with great ingenuity manage to find ways to simplify some of these tasks with small and simple tricks. It is always good to try to make our lives easier with little tricks that allow us to save time.

To share some of these tricks with you Bright Side made a compilation of ingenious ways in which users solved minor problems in their everyday lives.

1. “I used an outdoor all-weather receptacle box as a dispenser for doggy poop bags.”

2. Great advice!

“Need to drive with your pet often? Just treat your carrier as a pet-house on a daily basis, they will get used to it, putting them inside will be 200% easier and they will be less stressed about the ride.”

3. “Inspired by another poster, I got a reusable handkerchief box, and my mom gifted me all her estate sale vintage hankies for it.”

4. “My cousin laminated all the writing sheets for his family’s board games so they can reuse them.”

5. “I’ve wanted to try this for the past 30 years. It works exactly like I’d hoped it would.”

6. “Frugal fix: My husband had a hole in his favorite pants, so I embroidered a little turtle.”

7. “If you don’t want smelly trash, use an old Aroma seal coffee can to hold your compost/food scraps.”

8. “$1 solution to jangling keys: a nut and a bolt”

14. Solutions can even come in the form of a bag of bread.
