Simplrisms: A guide to simplifying your life, Volume One.

July 29, 2019

We can’t help but think how great life would be if there weren’t those pesky things like jobs, chores and general adult responsibilities to get in the way of doing actual fun stuff.

Well luckily, we can help (and before you ask, no, we’re not going to do your job for you).

We’re here to take all the fuss and hassle out of the everyday, with some sweet tips, shortcuts and tricks to making your life simpler.

We like to call them… Simplrisms.



The Sick Beats Simplrism

Simplrisms Stereo

If you ever find yourself needing to organise an impromptu rave or if you don’t want to fork out the big bucks for a fancy sound system, we’ve got just the solution. All you’ll need are a pair of scissors, an old toilet roll and two plastic cups. First carve out a slot in the toilet roll just big enough to slide in your phone. Then cut out a circle in each of the plastic cups and pop them on the end of the roll. Then search for the ‘Best of Ace of Base’ on your phone, press play and you’ve got yourself a party.


The Fresh Fries Simplrism

Simplrisms Chips

Fed up with getting gross, limp and soggy fries when you pick up your favourite fast food value meal? Next time you’re ordering some drive-thru, ask for your fries to be unsalted. This will guarantee the fries will be fresh out of the fryer. Mmmm yummy.


The Sticky Fingers Simplrism

Simplrisms Iceblock

If you love ripping into a nice cool ice block on a hot summer’s day as much as us, then you’ll know the icky feeling of melting sugary goodness dripping down your fingers. Well, no more. Before you take that first delicious taste, wrap a paper cupcake holder around your ice block stick. That way your fingers stay dry, and all you’ll need to worry about is that horrid brain freeze once you’re finished.


The Coloured Keys Simplrism

Simplrisms Keys

If you’ve ever been in a hurry to unlock anything, you’ll know the hassle of trying to figure out what key goes with what. If you want to sort your keys in a snap, try painting them with different shades of nail polish.


The Straight Collar Simplrism

Simplrisms Hair Straightener

No matter how hard you try, shirt collars rarely play ball when it comes to ironing. So if you’re in a rush and need a crisp, fresh collar, give a hair straightener a try. You’ll have it smoothed out and wrinkle-free in no time.

Got any more Simplrisms of your own? We’d love to hear them!
