Friday Frivolity: Life Hacks

Friday Frivolity pinnable image

I love the whole concept of life hacks - I mean, who doesn't want to save time and money? But, sometimes, you have to doubt whether they're going to save you any of either. Like,

help with crisp eating
Or, eat a normal size bag...

Of course, the term 'life hacks' is very new to the UK. We know them better as 'tightwad tips'. Like this one:

toothpaste breath mints

And my all time favourite:

If you're tired of apple crumble, why not try rhubarb instead?

Now on to the link-up! :D

When you're knee deep in dirty diapers and piles of laundry, it can be difficult to think about yourself. But, it's so important for moms to find a few minutes to focus on themselves. Here are five ways moms (with kids of all ages) can take a few minutes to have some "me time." Most of these moments can be done at home and don't cost any money. | homeschoolpreschool

I feel like this is something I really need in my life at the moment. I'm always so busy with Marianna, or work, or one of our family side hustles. I'd love to take a few minutes each day just to *be*.

  1. Oh, my, that toothpaste mint one is almost too much for me to take - EwEwEwEw!

    1. I know! The whole idea makes me feel a bit sick! x

  2. Ahhhhh that toothpaste one is so gross and amazing... :P

    I think maybe I don't get the rhubarb one? I know some people use our in pie, but that's about all I know... it's sour, right?


I love to hear from you, so please don't be shy!
