Check them out for yourself below, and stay tuned for part two!

Number Fourteen: Dunk Oreos Without the Mess.

Instead of making a milky, drippy mess while dunking your Oreos, slide a fork between the cookies and into the icing. Then hold the fork, and dip away. No mess!

Number Thirteen: Find Tiny Bits Without any Trouble. Instead of breaking out a magnifying glass or spending hours looking for that button you lost, try attaching a pair of stockings or a sock to the bottom of a vacuum. As you vacuum, periodically check the stockings to see if something clings to it!

Number Twelve: Eat Popsicles Without the Drip. Instead of worrying that your hands and arms will soon be covered in cold, sugary juice, just poke the bottom stick of your popsicle through a cupcake paper. The paper will hold any juices that drip, and you will optimize your eating experience. Just brush off any weird looks you get from passersby – they just don’t understand.

Number Eleven: Use Coins on Candy.

No, we don’t mean putting coins into a candy machine – instead of spending what feels like hours opening the plastic on a candy bar, just surround the plastic with two coins, and rub them together. The friction will tear the plastic much more easily than your hands can.

Number Ten: Sleep Better With a Scarf. Having trouble falling asleep on a long flight without any neck support? Try tying a scarf around the back of your headrest, and use the front of the scarf as a blindfold. Not only will you be able to lean into the scarf, but you’ll also get some good rest at the same time.

Number Nine: Paper Clip Your Cables. Instead of letting all your cords (headphones, chargers, you get the idea) become a tangled mess on your desk, attach them to paper clips! The paper clips will keep your cords separate without holding them down too tightly.

Number Eight: No Nutella Left Behind.

Instead of throwing away that almost-but-not-quite-empty jar of Nutella, throw in a heaping scoop of your favorite ice cream, and mix the two together! You’ll get those last bits of Nutella and enjoy a delicious treat at the same time.
