We are all passing through these uncertain times with a drop of care and insanity. We have to take our time to meditate, think and create anchors for ourselves and the ones around us. We have found DIY projects as being pieces of this anchor. By slowly upcycling and recycling as much as possible around us we strengthen our belief that small things do matter the most. We are shaping our small world as much as possible. Through simple backyard projects, DIY wall art projects,DIY furniture hacks and paper crafts alike we are becoming more of an individual than we were before. Different is good. Different is better. Be yourself and craft your way to happiness !

For example, potato chips make great kindling for lighting your charcoal grill (place a handful of chips on a paper coffee filter at the bottom of the grill and set it on fireunder a chimney. The oily chips will burn slowly, making sure your charcoal gets fiery hot).
The editors categorized their tips into groups for the lazy, for recycling, for single people, and for home bartenders. While all the hacks are great, we were mostly excited about the coffee tricks: Here are their selections, presented with illustrations by John Burgoyne, for getting that early morning jolt of caffeine into your face faster and with more ease.
