When you live with your family or your partner, some things you can count on being done for you – for instance, getting you to wake up on time and keeping the garbage bins clean. However, when you’re a bachelor living alone or with friends, these are things – amongst others, that you must do on your own. Imgur user ILikeThingsAndStuffAndMoreThingsposted these life hacks that will certainly, sticking to the clichéd line, change your life. Take a look for yourself.
1. Substitute coffee with apples
With natural fructose, carbs and fiber, apples provide a better pick-me-up than the caffeine in coffee.
2. Keep buttons from unraveling
Because admit it, it’s a drag to even start thinking about getting a new button stitched on. Borrow the nail polish from your girlfriend – or a girl friend. Or buy one. Say it’s for your girlfriend.
3. Never miss a wake-up alarm again
If your phone’s sound is too low to wake you up from your deep sleep in the morning, this will certainly work wonders.
4. Make cold water last longer
So helpful during those crazy summer mornings that drive you nuts during your commute.
5. Never have messy garbage bags again
Nothing is more annoying than a garbage bag dripping with foul-smelling juices. Try this out TODAY!
6. Cleaning your toilet with leftover Coke
Get rid of leftover Coke and clean your toilet too! The strong ingredients in this drink can clean your toilet and a lot more. Just leave it for the night and then scrub and flush in the morning.
7. Heat more food in one go in the microwave
Heating food when you’re hungry is such a hassle if there are two or more pots. This brilliant life hack will have your food ready in one go!

10. Watch movies while lying sideways
When all positions have been tried and done with, this one comes as a welcome change. So comfortable!
11. Keep loose zippers from riding down
Everyone’s got at least one pair of jeans who’s zipper will ride down after a few minutes. NOT ANYMORE!
12. Create unbreakable phone password
Your sneaky friends will no longer outsmart you. Muhahahaha!
13. Sleep in public without losing your bag
