We've always been envious of those people who just seem to get it. They're always coming up with easy solutions for every possible problem that comes up. We, on the other hand, are always having "Duh!" moments. You know, where one of those "get it" types mentions casually how they keep their remote from falling through the sofa cushions—while we sit there, furiously taking notes to share the tip with you.
In case you haven't noticed, we tech bloggers are apt to have some pretty "Duh! Why Didn't I think of that!" moments:
- Frugal for Life reminded us that a metallic Sharpie marker makes an instant cord label.
- A quick office hack reveals that an old coiled phone cord can help wrangle wires.
- A Lifehacker reader reminded us that there'san easy way to clean blenders.
- And Gweneth Paltrow showed us how to save our bathroom counters with potholders.
And now, here's another one from a Lifehacker reader: Stop losing your remote between the couch cushions by always resting it button-side down. The little rubber buttons act like grippy feet, keeping your remote safely in place.
Yes, it's simple. And yeah, we know many of you "get it" types have already figured this out. But for the rest of us, it's a great tip that might save you from missing the first few minutes of your favorite show.
Do you guys have any more "duh!" moments to share? Let us know!
