As 2020 comes to a close, we’re all about life hacking. Aka, making things a bit easier, saving precious time, and saving some hard-earned money. To strike gold, we did some digging. Well...we researched products that are life-hacking pros.
And these definitely fit the bill. They’ll help ease your everyday routine. They’ll end some frustration (like when you watch a new pimple arise justtt after your skin clears). And they’ll totally be worth their price tag. Psst...everything is under $75.
Oh, and sign up here to get more recs of our fave things to your inbox every Monday.
Introducing your new favorite space-saver. It’s got a built-in utensil caddy and lots of strength to support heavier pots and lids. You can pull it out once the dishes are washed and then stow it away once everything is dry. ($45, Food52)
Because once it’s gone, you have to send a search mission in to pull it out. This cushion will fit around the seat buckle catch to fully block the gap. No receipt, French fry, or hair tie left behind. ($22.99/set of 2, Amazon)
Once you notice one forming, clean the area and apply a patch. The microdarts will dissolve to release formula directly into the skin. So the healing process can begin. And you won’t be stuck picking at your face late at night. Yep, we do it too. ($29/8 patches, ZitSticka)
You’ve got shoes on, so why doesn’t your pup? The sole mimics the structure of a dog’s paw pad so your pet can comfortably run around while you hike or enjoy a snowy landscape. They’re durable and water-resistant for every type of adventure. ($50.36+, Chewy)
The kit includes a tub of spackling compound, self-adhesive patches, a putty knife, and a sanding pad. So you won’t totally regret that gallery wall you hung years ago. Time to get that security deposit back. ($11.89, Amazon)
