Rose’s Favourite Life Hacks

July 30, 2016

I’ve compiled a list of my absolute favourite real life hacks from over the years, some of them have been so incredibly quirky & useful, I’ve often wondered why didn’t I think of that before? So, let me know what you think, any hacks I haven’t included that you think should make the list?


  • To remove the stem from strawberries, use a straw!
  • Rub a walnut on damaged wooden furniture to cover up dings.
  • Use a hanging shoe rack to store cleaning supplies (and keep them away from the kids!)
  • Doritos are great for kindling if you can’t find any.
  • Take an old CD spindle and turn it into a bagel tote.
  • Freeze grapes to chill white wine without watering it down.
  • Put pancake mix in a ketchup bottle for a no-mess experience.
  • To stop receiving marketing email, filter your email by the word ‘unsubscribe’.
  • To make BLTs or any toasted sandwich, place 2 slices of bread in a single toaster slot. This way, the bread gets warm and toasty on the outside, but stays soft and chewy on the inside.
  • Don’t burn yourself on those hard to reach candles, light a stick of spaghetti and light the wick with that.
  • Put a wooden spoon across a boiling pot of water to keep it from boiling over.
