I send my dog in first to eat up the stale chips and french fries
I see what you did there.
The advantage of smartphone-based tools is that you actually have them with you.
I picked up a nice big apple tablet and an apple pencil so that I could take electronic notes. Found an app that recognized handwriting, thought I was golden. It’s been nine months and I think I’m going to go back to those hardbound laboratory notebooks. I just don’t review the electronic notes as much. I end up…
An item to add: it will be painfully obvious to observers whether you really have the goods or don’t. I swear to you, it was Brian Moylan’s first Dorit mention in a recap that he said, “I’m reasonably certain the house is rented and/or they don’t have anywhere near the money they pretend to have.” The ones who really,…
What is this, a click-baity article with good content about fiscal responsibility?
Don’t forget the lesson from Giudices of RHONJ - don’t commit bankruptcy fraud.
My director basically told me that the only way to get a real raise (anything other than the standard ~2% B.S.) at our company was to look outside our company. So I did. I got a job offer somewhere else, presented it to him, and for a >20% raise. Sucks that I had to do it, but it did the trick.
The Magic Erasers are amazing! I have 3 little boys who find permanent markers and write on random things in the house... lol. The erasers take those Mark's of and even takes of rust, paint, and pretty much anything. Whomever invented these deserves an award! 🤗
I tried everything to get my acrylic tub clean: ammonia, bleach (not at the same time - don’t do that, kids!), and plain old elbow grease. I tried the Magic Eraser as a last resort - it truly is a gift from God!
I was told by a NYC parking cop that two whole sidewalk squares of concrete is the best way to measure how far you need to be from the hydrant. He eyeballed my parking and said “I wouldn’t give you a ticket”
I actually managed to remove an entire window’s worth of crappy tint with googone and a razor blade (well, 3). My fingers hated me at the end, but I had a clear window and no scratches.
I bought a trashcan from the Container Store a few years ago that has a gasket in the side of it that looks similar to the rubber gasket for a sink’s garbage disposal. When you put in a new bag, you stuff the remaining plastic into the gasket which holds it steady AND provides the hole for so the bag doesn’t get stuck.
I open up cereal boxes and fold them inside out (so the regular cardboard is exposed), then put them in the trash bag before the can. This gets rid of the air and absorbs any liquids.
You can also gather the bag at one corner and use just one binder clip to hold it.
This is the lifehacker content I’ve been missing. This is so simple but helps so much
“Farm to table” may seem like an over-utilized marketing phrase, used mostly to lure hipsters into Edison-bulb-lit eateries, and for the most part it is. But for Chef Christian F. Puglisi—the founder of Copenhagen’s Restaurant Relae—it means taking that first word very seriously.
Holy shit, the first ever example of a truly useful trigger warning.
You left out the enjoyment of screaming the same command repeatedly at an inanimate object.
I'm a professional concert photographer and there is always a few used ones in my bag to remove smudges from glass and viewfinder. I swear by them and now my secret is out.
