At the ripe old age of (mumbles), I thought I had stuff pretty much figured out. Boy, was I wrong. I can’t be the only one who’s been doing these things wrong my whole life.

Coffee Time

Most of us have a coffee right when we wake up, which scientists say is the worst time. Why? Your body is already wide awake. For the best caffeine boost, save your coffee breaks for 9:30-11:30 a.m. and 1:30-5:30 p.m. You’re likely to be the most tired during these times in the day.


Eating Tic Tacs

Did anyone else know they were supposed to come out like this?


Untying Plastic Bags

No more ripping the bag open in frustration.

Eating A Cupcake

The mini-sandwich method is what’s up.

Eating Chips

Now you don’t have to tip the bag over or dirty a bowl. Score! 


Chinese Take-Out

Speaking of saving on dishes, did you know these were designed to fold out into a plate? Mind. Blown.

Slicing Cake

You know those dry edges that everyone hates? If you slice from the middle and close the cake after eating from it, you won’t have that problem!

Pouring Juice

Want to skip the “glug, glug, glug” that gets juice everywhere when you pour? Flip the carton the opposite way for a smoother pour.

Peeling Oranges

You mean I’ve wasted all this time peeling oranges when I could have just cut off each end and sliced through the peel?

Eating Wings

Why eat around the bones when you can just pull them out? Boneless wings in an instant!

Slicing Cherry Tomatoes

The right way is that fast? My whole evening just opened up.

Peeling Potatoes

Where has this been all of my life?

Folding Your Shirts

You could be doing it in under two seconds flat.
