The Spoon Can Opener

I once was stranded on a rural highway after a freeway-closing accident with only a can of tuna to eat (and a pair of chopsticks). Luckily, I had a multi-tool with a can opener. Had I only had a spoon, then this somewhat obscure hack would have come in handy. I won’t even go into how odd I looked eating tuna from a can using chopsticks, all while stuck in a completely stationary traffic jam. Since you never know when you might find yourself without a can opener, this hack on how to open a can with a spoon could, theoretically, come in handy for someone.

Grilled Fish on Lemon Slices

grill-fish-on-lemons

Like peanut butter and chocolate, fish and lemon are just meant to be together. But why stop at just sprinkling a little lemon juice on your fish? Instead, try grilling your next fish meal directly on top of lemon slices. You’ll not only avoid the misfortune of having your fish stick to the grill (a major bummer!), but the fish will taste fantastico too!

Instant Trash Liners

Replacing trash liner bags can be a real drag, so we’ve got a hack to minimize the hassle. Rather than replace liners one by one, load up a half dozen or so liners in one shot. When it’s time to take out the trash, you’ll have more liners ready to rock. As an added bonus, the additional liners can also catch any trash goop if you happen to use a bag with a rip or tear!

Yogurt Container Seedling Pots

Sure, you could just go buy seedling pots at your local nursery, but what fun is that?! Instead, why not gorge yourself on yogurt and then use those yogurt containers to nurture your seeds? All it takes is a few holes poked in the bottom for drainage (if desired). It’s a garden hack that not only benefits your garden, but it also helps YOU from becoming calcium deficient!

Twisted and warped wood can be a pain to untwist and seat correctly in place. Use a partially driven screw along with your hammer to help pull the twist out of any joist, stud or truss.
