Published / by GSM

In this Life Hacks YouTube video, Wengie provides life hacks that set the lazy meter over the top.

 

Dialing it at 25 percent on the lazy meter are microwave mug recipes. Wengie’s favorite, Lentil pizza, consists of canned lentils, mushrooms and peppers dashed into a mug and topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. Pop in the microwave for one minute and eat this vegetarian-friendly goodness.

 

Kicking the lazy meter up to 50 percent, Wengie demonstrates how to fold your yogurt lid into a makeshift spoon. The edges can be a little sharp, so using the spoon takes practice, but you have to be willing to sacrifice for your lazy art. Also, you now don’t have to wash the spoon. Another trick to avoid washing dishes that comes in at 50 percent on the lazy meter is to wrap your dish with plastic wrap before putting food on it. Simply throw away the plastic wrap and never wash another dish.

 

At 75 percent laziness, a sloth could probably pass you, but you won’t even have to get out of bed to take a drink at night. Instead of a glass, keep a sippy cup on your nightstand to avoid spilling your drink. For extra lazy points to make that sloth proud, be sure to keep it within reach while lying with your head on the pillow.

 

So, 100 percent is as high as the lazy meter currently goes and these tips from Wengie will elevate you to master of the universe lazy status. Take an old hoodie and put it on backwards so that the hood is positioned under your chin like a trough. Now, dump in some popcorn and dive in for hands-free eating. If you don’t feel like washing the popcorn bowl, take a picture of the clean side of the sink, print it out and put it on top of your dirty dishes for effective camouflage until you get to the washing.
