Making meatballs can be a messy business, but there’s a way to make it easier and a little less…messy. Most kids will go for spaghetti and meatballs any night of the week, so this next hack is one that simply can’t be avoided. It has to be done. Just grab one of your trusty ice cream scoops!
After you prepare the meat and spices, use the ice cream scoop to scrape up the meat mixture and easily create a ball shape. This leaves you with nearly perfect-sized and shaped meatballs while your hands stay a lot cleaner.

Reuse Plastic Bottles
Having a large wardrobe that has specific draws for shoes is never enough. Buying a beautiful wooden cabinet at the entrance of your house to store the shoes you wear daily is never enough. So, if you need more storage space for your shoes, you can always use old plastic bottles.
Simply cut off the end with a utility knife and stick them together with glue. This way, they won't fall all over the place and will keep your shoes all in one place in a neat setup. Isn't it wonderful to discover that when you last bought a bottle of soda, you actually bought much more?
No More Crying Over Onions
Even if you like the taste of onions, you have to admit that preparing them can be a hassle. The chemicals that they give off when you cut through the many layers make your eyes burn, make you tear up, and make you need to blow your nose too frequently for food prep.
If you find yourself dealing with this far too often, just put on a pair of goggles. Yes, yes, the same ones you use when you go swimming. If they can keep out water, they can keep out the stinging sensation of cutting onions. It's all about using resources properly, and this surely counts.

Say goodbye to egg salad full of crack shells, say goodbye to awkward-looking eggs, and embrace smooth, silky, and delicious nutritious food.
We can assure you that from now on, your kids will ask for a second helping, and you will ask yourself, how didn't I come across this hack before? You are welcome, that is what we are here for.
