Used teabags

PSA: Used tea bags do not make great hand warmers. They get cold so quickly. So. Quickly.

Poop shoes

  via Twitter  

Oh yeah, just go to the park with foil on your shoes like a crazy person. That’s totally normal and not weird at all!

Put a lid on it

  via Twitter  

If you pour a mug of tea and then decide you need another half an hour, just put a lid on your mug. It won’t keep it very warm, but it will look ridiculous.

Posh cutlery

  via Twitter  

Instead of using your fancy forks and knives, destroy them and store them in a glass. It looks great and not at all just like broken cutlery in a cup. The next one is so sad.

String belt

  via Twitter  

Just use some string as a belt! It’ll look great, and you definitely won’t look like an orphan from Oliver Twist.

Jump No-Rope

  via Twitter  

Cut the rope off your jump rope and just use the handles and your imagination. It won’t be sad at all.

Foil coasters

  via Twitter  

Use the foil from your packaged pies as coasters. Then just throw the pie on the ground because there’s no place for it now.

Frame frames

  via Twitter  

This is maybe the creepiest thing I’ve ever seen. And I just saw Hereditary.

Breakfast combo

  via Twitter  

Hey Granny, your grandkids hate that cereal. Guaranteed. The next woman might be an actual crazy person.

Funny hats

  via Twitter  

Hey, I mean, making yourself seem like a crazy person to avoid salesmen at your door is effective. But it might not be something you want to share with people.

Post-it directions

  via Twitter  

If you don’t have a GPS or a smartphone with a maps app, you’re not living in this century.

Sanitary curves

  via Twitter  

Of any idea that there is in the world, this might be the worst. The worst idea that exists. We found it, folks. It’s right here.

Speaking of sanitary napkins…

  via Twitter  

Do you just have so many sanitary napkins that you don’t know what to do?! Use them willy-nilly to clean your bathroom even though they’re super expensive.

Budget mints

  via Twitter  

This isn’t funny. This can’t be serious. This has to be a joke. Right? The next one returns to the land of women’s sanitary products.

Tampons

  via Twitter  

I feel so bad for the women who work at the magazine who are forced to model these terrible hacks. You can see it in their eyes. They don’t want to be doing this.

Washing machine fruit bowl

  via Twitter  

Or, I have another wild suggestion. You could just buy a fruit bowl.

Rice sock

  via Twitter  

Yeah, because real breasts are lumpy and grainy just like sacks of rice. This is insane.

Toilet roll safe

  via Twitter  

Well thanks, Jackie, now everyone knows! But also, don’t do this. It’s weird.

Cereal box corners

  via Twitter  

This is absurd. You don’t want every corner in your house to be covered with Corn Flakes boxes. Your house would look insane. Share this with someone who loves life hacks!
