Although I am admittedly fatigued by the supposed “life hacks” that often pop up in my newsfeed or on my Pinterest, I have to admit that, occasionally, I stumble upon a useful trick that actually has the potential to live up to its “life hack” classification.
This, my friends, is one of those hacks. (Apologies for saying “hack” so many times, geez.)
Twitter user Stephen Quavo recently shared a life hack to Twitter that’s causing everyone to rethink their entire packing strategy.
The ingenious hack involves tying trash bags around entire swaths of clothes that are already on hangers. This allows you to transport your clothes without the disorganization — and allows you to hang them up immediately in the closet of your new abode.
Quavo tweeted out a photo of the hack in action, and the idea quickly went viral, racking up over 21,000 likes and 9,400 retweets.
Twitter’s mind is collectively blown.
Some people added that they’ve been using this hack for years (and keeping it to themselves, apparently).
Unfortunately, for some folks, this hack came too little, too late.
Even if you don’t have any major packing or moving in the immediate future, you and I both know that you’re going to file this trick away for future use.
Hooray for the usefulness of trash bags!
