There are a lot of lifehacks out there that really just don't work. But, there are a lot that actually do work! And sometimes they're just so simple that you have to give them a chance, just in case they are totally life-changing.

I have a growing list of hacks that I'm trying at home, and a lot of them actually work. I'm pretty impressed with how much easier, tidier, or downright better some hacks make my life. So, why not give them a try?
