All too often old books get left on a shelf and end up being covered with dust. Or with today’s modern technology they may appear somewhere on the internet and end up buried in the archives and hidden within or search engine listings. But, every once in a while an old book finds its way back into today’s world and becomes a gem once again.
There are tons of people who visit YouTube on a constant basis. When they do it is to view all the different types of videos. But one channel that has been there since 2007 is Household Hacker and it has gathered in excess of four million followers. This channel Household Hackers all came about because of an old book that was re-discovered. The author of the channel has made it his mission to dig up old books that he can use to bring forth life hacks that apparently over four million people find useful.
What are Life Hacks?
Life hacks are all about finding ways and means to do things in life that are going to make life a whole lot easier and a lot more convenient. For example, the author of Household Hacker found a sixty-year-old book that gave a nifty way of keeping a paintbrush in a jar of soapy water to clean it using a magnet.
Then another nifty one that resurrected from the past was for moving heavy furniture. Today to do this we spend a fortune on fancy made furniture pads. According to this long-lost book the same results can be achieved with the use of a piece of cardboard.
So not only does this one book alone save time but it can save some money too. This is just a real reminder that there are many old books out there that still have great value today.
