Let's be honest here, life can be hard sometimes.

Sometimes our flip-flop straps pull through their holes, or we can't seem to figure out how to perfectly fold that fitted blanket. No matter what it is, it's definitely frustrating.

Even though these small things can frustrate us, some creative people have thought about some awesome lifehacks to fix the things that make life difficult.

Here are some awesome and random lifehacks that should help make every day a little bit better.

1. No one ever really fully enjoys having a roommate, especially when they smell.
