Hacks Blog – Tips and tricks to improve your life

This website contains little shortcuts, known as hacks, that are meant to help improve your life.

I’ve been fascinated by life hacks for a while. Anything that lets me have an easier life, I’m all for. Also, hacks take very little effort so they are easy to accept.

I’ve written or curated information only on hacks that work. I’ve included only information on this site is either from my own experience or that I have tested. Also included are ones that fall into the category of “Obviously that would work, why didn’t I think of that!”

What is a hack?

I’m often asked this question by people thinking I’m talking about ‘computer hacking’ which is an entirely different subject.

A hack is a shortcut, procedure, or action that:

  • Solves a problem
  • Simplifies a task
  • Reduces frustration

Originally the term was only used as “lifehack”

 The term lifehack was coined in 2004 during the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference in San Diego, California by technology journalist Danny O’Brien to describe the “embarrassing” scripts and shortcuts productive IT professionals use to get their work done. After his presentation, use of the term lifehack spread in the tech and blogging community.


However, thanks largely in part to social media, the term has evolved into such categories as:

  • Cooking
  • Teachers
  • Winning games

And just about any other combination under the sun. The blog will focus mainly on shortcuts that will improve your life, and leave the video game cheats to other sites. (There are a lot of them!)

Everyone has problems. While big difficulties will require big solutions, often it is the little everyday things that can grind us down. These simple suggestions are meant to solve little problems with as little as effort as possible. Here you’ll find shortcuts and advice on everything from saving money to finding side hustles to organizing your house.

Reduce Stress

When you can get more done with little effort it reduces stress in your life. Because you have less stress you have the happier you are! As a result, the easier it is to get things done.

Other things that reduce stress:

  • A Clean House
  • More Money
  • A Happy Family
  • A Shopping Bargain
  • Travel on Vacation

These simple hacks that work have been curated from social media, and from my own life experiences. I’ve especially attempted to include suggestions that pack a punch, and only require a bit of time to implement.

I hope this blog I’ve put together can help you with some of those things listed above and help you to enjoy life.
