Step 1: UNLOCK SHOPPING CART WITHOUT a COIN

If you find yourself in a situation where you haven't got any change and you can't get a shopping cart, don't panic use your house key instead. Round key is about the same size as one pound coin. You can unlock cart with it and pull it out. carry on shopping.

Step 2: DRY SOCKS IN 5 MINUTES

If you need to go out, but all your socks are still wet after doing your laundry? simply grab a hair dryer and put your sock onto it. Turn a hair dryer on and in less than 5 minutes your socks will be dry.

Step 3: MAKE AN ASHTRAY/ TEA-LIGHT HOLDER

Grab an empty can from beer or coke, gut it in half, then cut strips like shown. Roll strips backwards like shown and there you have it within few minutes you have made a candle holder, it can also be used as an ashtray.

Step 4: CUT VEGETABLES WITHOUT CUTTING YOURSELF

Take a plastic card, preferably the one you don't need, cut it in half. take two rubber bands and attach these halves to your thumb and pointer finger. now you can cut vegetables without worrying about cutting yourself.

Step 5: LEAVE NO STREAKS WHEN CLEANING

As you can tell in first two pictures, after wiping surfaces with kitchen towel, there are some streaks that look bad. instead of using kitchen towels use window squeegee. it's a lot quicker and leaves no streaks.

<p>What country are you from? I have never encountered these issues. Who charges for a shopping cart?</p>
<p>I Don't Know About In The USA But In Canada They Charge You <strong>EVERYWHERE</strong></p>
<p>In southeast Pennsylvania there are a lot of grocery stores and such using this method. Kind of makes sure you return the cart to the proper place to get your quarter back. </p>
<p>In Europe, almost all shopping carts work like that. You put a coin to get the cart, and you've finish your shopping you put the chart back in the line and you get your coin back.</p>
well. the idea is not to trick shops, it's to help you in situation when you haven't hot any change. you aren't gonna get cart with your credit card. therefore this might help someone. but I appreciate your feedback. subscribe
The store Aldis does
<p>only one store in the US requires a quarter for a cart: Aldi. You get the coin back, here in the US.</p>
in England you get your coin back. in US I can imagine you lose a quater
Here in US you get the quarter back.
IDEA!!!<p>I Like The Candle Holder But (And This Only Makes It look Pretty,) You Could Spray Paint It First So People Don't See The Can You Are Using!</p><p><strong><em>VOILA! </em></strong></p><p>Not Much Different Though</p>
<p>I particularly like the hack to cut vegetables. I'm forever cutting myself if I cut too fast, or cutting very slowly to prevent it.</p>
<p>A hair dryer works well for drying socks, bras, and panties, but much better if wet clothes are rolled up first with a dry bath towel and &quot;danced&quot; on to move most of the water from wet undies to towel.</p>
yes. that's another trick that helps
<p>good trick! Will it work @ Aldi's here in the USA for quarters?</p>
I live in UK. so unfortunately I can't answer that. give it a try
<p>Swell ideas! I really like the card one....</p>
thank You I appreciate your feedback. also if you like this instructable check out my others. or subscribe to my YouTube channel DIY ZE
what about places like aldi that swap your shopping cart for another one at checkout? the person after you gets screwed out of a quarter and you steal someones quarter. i hit aldi 2 times a week for fresh veggies. 50 cents a week times 52 weeks a year. its not a hack, its theft.
oh but the other 4 are excellent and i agree with the other user. enter these in a hack contest.
<p>thanks. :)</p>
i see you entered that contest. Enjoy my vote and gl
Modify coin life hack, drill hole thru coin(s) next guy at aldi now has a quarter he can use on his keychain!
<p>I disagree with the card/knife hack. Let alone you loose any feeling for the thickness of the cut I'd simply feel disabled with those wobbly stripes attached to my fingers. Instead bend your index and middle finger slightly so the blade will not touch the nails but only slide along the middle of your fingers. As long as you keep the blade in touch you will be absolutely safe. It takes a bit of exercise. All chefs around the world use this technique.</p>
<p>how could you cut up a costa coffee club card ;) Nice life hacks</p>
<p>well, i had it for years, and havent got enough points even for a cookie, so :)</p>
<p>haha, and then theres me who gets enough points for a free drink every month or so lol</p>
<p>Nice life hacks. You should enter this instructable in the Hack My Day contest.</p>
