Let’s face it, sometimes you just don’t have the tools you need. For instance, what if you don’t have a cupholder in your car? Or what if you don’t have a blender in your kitchen? What do you do?
Never fear, these clever people (or idiots) have the answers you need. The saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” takes on a new meaning when you see these interesting, if not bizarre life hacks.
So the next time you run out of shoe room in your closet or your front headlights cease to work, these people have the solution… and they are funnier than you can imagine.
Does your car not have a cupholder? Never fear! Just take an old shoe and voila! But do us all a favor and make sure your old shoe is clean before using.
