People don't often realise that there is a gadget out there to make almost any task easier or to suit almost every need you could think of! It's all a matter of finding the perfect gadget for the job at hand.
At first glance this concept might seem to be a by-product of our increasingly busy and fast paced lifestyles. We live in a world where time is a very valuable commodity, so it's perfectly normal to want to be more productive and as efficient as possible. However, the concept of life hacks is not a new one invented by lazy modern-day people. Small tricks and tips to make day to day tasks easier have been around and popular since the 1900s!
Nowadays, however, life hacks have less to do with our actual work lives (although some really useful work life hacks have started appearing online in recent years) and more to do with self-improvement and personal efficiency. Making our day to day life as easy as possible ensures that we can get the most out of our time. As a bonus, trying life hacks is a really fun thing to do!
Here are the top 10 gadgets that we think will make your life a lot easier and hassle-free.
In the run up to your summer holiday, you're excited to leave your stresses at home and enjoy a relaxing week or two sightseeing or lying on a golden beach sipping a fruity cocktail.
You've planned all your outfits, changed your currency and packed your suitcase. You're ready to head to the airport.
But have you really remembered the essentials?
It's an exciting summer for sport this year!
First up, we have the Euros kicking off on June 10th, closely followed by England's first game against Russia on the 11th to look forward to. A few of our summer days and evenings will be spent cheering our country on from the comfort of our own homes... well, depending on how far they manage to get!
After all the football excitement, Olympics fever will sweep the nation and between the 5th and 21st of August, we have some exciting races and competitions to witness over in Rio. Seb Coe is predicting that records will be broken, so the Olympic and Paralympic games is set for some exciting days involving Team GB.
With all this sport around, it's a fantastic opportunity to get your kids out in the sunshine and involved in some new activities. You don't have to spend a fortune on lessons and classes to get your children active though. With so much going on, it's easy to get them interested in the great outdoors by getting their friends together in the garden or down in the park, and setting up your own games and tournaments.
We've come up with a few fun ideas to fill the summer days with this year, whilst helping to keep your children fit and active:
The weather is warming up, the clocks have sprung forward an hour meaning the nights are lighter and daffodils are adding a pop of colour to the grass verges as we drive around our towns.
Spring is here which means you're probably wanting to get your home clean and tidy. The warmer weather means more play dates, BBQs and evening drinks with friends, and you'll probably want to have your home ready for anyone popping in.
But why do we actually spring clean?
Let's take a look at the reasons spring cleaning happens and a few tips on how to make the best of your home this season...
