It's getting more and more expensive to maintain a basic lifestyle, so just about everyone is looking for ways to save some money any way they can. And if they aren't looking for a way to save money, they're looking to save time. Whether you're a college student, fresh out of school, or just trying to save some money or energy, there is a hack in here for you. And just for good measure, we've rated all of them "genius" or "lazy."
If you're throwing a party and ran out of space in your fridge, here is a creative solution.
The ice melts into the machine and it just drains itself.
This one earns a “genius” for sure.

Okay, as much as we want to call this one lazy, it’s actually kind of genius.
Another “genius”, well earned.
Seriously, why are dishes such a big deal?
Don’t have time to do the dishes? Wash ’em while you wash yourself!
Okay, actually don’t do that. This one isn’t lazy or genius, it’s just gross.
