When it comes to life, we need all that hacks we can get. SO many things are either too expensive, to hard to use or don't work at all that we waste a lot of money on products we won't use.

What began as a discussion motivated by my use of hemorrhoid cream under my eyes, turned into tons of great ideas using products you probably already have at home. Products that are meant to be used for one thing, but can be used for other things too.

Here is a list of 15 of the best life hacks from the Tristate.
