The Household Hacker
A lot of people have online channels now, where they show how to do hair, apply makeup, review online shopping sites, and for this person, try out household hacks. Known as the Household Hacker, this YouTuber decided to do some digging to find some unique hacks.

A Little Bit Creepy
The Household Hacker began detailing their journey to find a classic tome of household hacks. They had access to their grandparents’ attics and basements, which were basically treasure troves of forgotten books.

This book held all of the hacks they would ever need for the next three years of their YouTube show. Now, all they needed to do is choose a couple and get started.
