Tip 1: If you're taking a photo with your cell phone vertically, you are not getting the whole picture - unless the image you're trying to capture is very tall and narrow. Turn your phone horizontally to the landscape mode.

Tip 2: Did you know you are peeling a banana wrong? Peel it by holding it upside down, pinch the base and peel. It is the way monkeys do it.

Tip 3: You know how hard it is to keep the role of tin foil and plastic wrap inside its container? Here is a little secret: every one of the packages comes with little tabs on both sides that keep the roll in place as you rip away.

Tip 4: How about peeling hard boiled eggs? Lifestyle expert Erika Katz shows you a simple trick.

"Put an egg in a glass, fill it with just a little bit of water, cover it and shake it up really well. The shell comes right off," she said.

Tip 5: What about those annoying little packets of medication? You can get a headache just trying to open them if you don't have scissors.

Instead, fold a crease around the tiny slit in the corner of the package until it begins to get larger. It makes it super easy to rip open even without scissors.

Tip 6: Do your kids ask you to scoop ice cream because it's hard as a rock? You can make ice cream scoopable by keeping the container in a zip lock bag while it's in the freezer.

Tip 7: Most of us drive every single day and you might be making a dangerous mistake. When you adjust your side mirrors, you don't need to see any of your car at all - you only need to the lane next to you. So adjust the mirror so you’re just seeing a small sliver of your car. That way you'll be getting rid of a potential blind spot.
