What is a life hack? - Read Danny O’Brien explanation at the 43 Folders Wiki.
I motivated to start looking for ways to save a few dollars recently. I found that a significant percentage of my weekly out of pocket expenses went for cold beverages, like Diet Coke or Iced Tea. My daily spend ranged from $1 to $5. Obviously, avoiding $20 to $25 per week would have a positive impact on my budget.
My solution was to buy a Bubba Keg 52oz cooler (~$10). I fill it with ice and water in the morning before I leave for work, and then refill it throughout the day. In two weeks of using it, I have only purchased one soda. I am drinking far less artificial ingredients now and am saving a ton of cash in the process. It may seem like a simple concept, but it qualifies as a life hack to me.
