23 Genius Lifehacks To Help Us With All The Things

I've been writing about lifehacks for quite some time now, and there are SO MANY hacks out there. Seriously, sometimes it's hard to filter through the really bad ones and the somewhat okay ones. But, it's pretty easy to spot the terrible ones, tbh.

Because there are so many hacks out there, there's literally a hack for anything. A problem in the kitchen? There's a hack. Got sweaty feet? There's a hack!

1. I've seen over-the-door organizers used for many things, but this is the first time I've seen it in the pantry!

This is the perfect way to organize fruits and veg that don't have to go in the fridge. But, tbh, I thought all of them did...

2. This might be the cutest way to display and store your knives that I've ever seen.

I thought I was fancy AF when I got my first knife block, but I think I'd rather have this if I'm totally honest.

But then I realized I literally just pile all of my slices on top of each other and definitely don't do this.

I am not a genius.
