Lifehacks are my jam. Usually, you can find a way to get something done quicker, easier, and — most importantly — cheaper by getting clever with the things you already have on hand.
There are approximately eleventy-bajillion lifehacks out there on the internet, so let me help you out by sharing some of my personal faves. cool stuff, cool stuff
1. Make perfect grilled cheese for a crowd with two sheet pans.

Lay out the sandwiches on one tray and press the second tray down on top before baking in the oven until golden.
2. Make a seatbelt retract smoothly with polish.
The tiniest bit of friction can cause a seatbelt to keep getting caught in the door. Spray a bit of surface polish under where the seatbelt feeds to solve the friction problem easily.
3. Use a ruler to hold a book open.
Readers have mastered the trick of holding a book open with thumb and pinky, but for longer books or the larger, mass-market paperbacks, it can be cumbersome. A short ruler can do the hard work for you. cool stuff, cool stuff
