Lifehack: Mulch

A "lifehack" is a technique or idea that helps or prevents you.

For example, putting your car keys in your leftover bag of lunch at work will prevent you from going home without your leftovers.

Stuff like that.

Today, I took delivery of eight cubic yards of premium mulch. So, in order to give me some incentive to get it distributed around the yard, I had the driver put it on the driveway so that I can't drive my Spyder!

Now I have an incentive!




All The Best,

I'd be more impressed if you had the willpower to not have bought the Spyder :)

Matt, jealousy doesn't become you.

Nope. Putting your car keys in your leftover bag of lunch guaruntees not only will you not be able to find your keys, once you do eventually find them, they'll smell like stale lunch.

For me, anyways....

I hope you don't have an emergency where you actually need your car.

I have two other cars. :-)

Even better, dump the mulch in your neighbour's driveway so he has to spread it to be able to drive.

I'm pretty sure I could still get that Spyder out - let me know if you'd like me to try.

If your garage sets on fire, you'll be ramping your vehicle over a pile of mulch.

I hope your wife isn't expecting.

... then when someone steals your leftovers, they get your car as a bonus prize!

Funny enough, a couple of years ago, my brother lost his car keys by inadvertently lefting them on his lunchbox, which was then lost and never recovered. Guess they never got to the car though, since he still drives it (a very nice and battered VW Beetle)

I used to put my car keys with my house keys in order not to let them inside the car, until once I left both inside the car, with no possibility of even calling someone to the rescue (in the pliocene pre-mobile era, tertiary period)

When I go to a friends house or something and I take off my shoes, I put my keys in the shoes so that I won't forget to put them on when I leave. I live in vancouver and it rains alot; wet socks suck.
