A life hacker without the proper tools is a bit like Leonardo DaVinci with a box of crayons: you can probably make something good, but you’re not going to create the Sistine Chapel of life hacks. Here are some of the most useful life hacking supplies you can get for a dollar or less.
Nearly everything in this list is something you can pick up from your local dollar store. Just like with your car or disaster emergency kits, it’s always a good idea to have the materials you might need handy ahead of time. Life hacking supplies might not be a life-saving necessity, but if you’re here, chances are you want to get things done faster and easier.
We obviously have our favorite life hacking tools—it’s no secret—but today we’re going to do something a little bit different and put our list in the comments and combine it with your suggestions for one, big, mega-awesome list.
To add your own, follow this format to make it easier for others to read and take advantage of the list:
