Well, there are so many, it's hard to say where they came from or who figured them out first. Some of them are old household tricks that have been passed down from generation to generation, and somehow along the way we started calling household tricks, life hacks. To hack, means to take an alternative route or method to do something, to break all of the rules so to speak and make your own way of doing things more efficiently. The term hack was first used by computer technicians who create short cuts in doing their computer programming. The work hack can also be used to describe someone who didn't do a very good job on something too, for example, "He did such a hack job on that car." Like the person made too many quick low quality fixes on something. Household tips have usually been shared in books or magazines, and there are so many collections of these tips and tricks that make our lives easier. If you were to ask your mom or your grandmother if she had ever had or heard of a book of household tips and tricks she would probably know what you are talking about. Magazines still add in simple life hacks whether they are beauty hacks, household hacks, or lifestyle hacks. They are a great way to give people something practical that they can use and remember for years to come, and hopefully share with others.
