    While working at a cafe the owner told me to peel the eggs in a sink of cold water. Just dump them in as soon as they finish boiling, works every time :-).

    To peel an egg just tap the top and tap the bottom and remove a 5cent piece of egg shell from the top and bottom. Hold your hand at the bottom of the egg and hold the egg with your other hand. Take a deep breath and blow hard into the hole on the top of the egg and the whole egg will pop out of the bottom hole.

    That's how DP gets eggs out. And with minimal practise he can peel 4 eggs in 4 breaths total and a few seconds.

    I hate horrible jars that won't open. But I learnt by chance the other night on this jar that no one could open if you tap the rim of the lid on a counter then run the lid under hot water for a few seconds the lid will just open easily. Weird.

    Can openers work wonderfully to open those types of packs. That little bit of info changed my life!

    Chuppa chups - ridiculous wrappers, even worse when you have a whiny kid waiting for it.

    Travel cots - just when you think you know how the last side always gets stuck
