  • When cooking spinach, don't bother with the hassle of taking it out of the pack, boiling water, and wilting it over a pan - just chuck the sealed bag in the microwave for 45 seconds on full blast.

  • Keep a container of wipes in your bathroom, and wipe down the sink and counters after your brush your teeth at night. It makes deep-cleaning the bathroom much easier, too!
