40 Old Life Hacks That Are Still Unbelievably Useful

People don't usually look back at the beginning of the 20th century for advice, but what if we were actually able to learn something useful from the Lost Generation?

Below you'll find 40 how-to-do-it pictures discovered in cigarette boxes over 100 years ago and digitized by the New York Public Library. The tips they give are so helpful that you might want to take some notes.

Back in 1900, cigarette cards were famous collectibles enclosed in every pack and displayed pictures of celebrities and advertisements. Gallaher cigarettes, a UK-founded tobacco company that used to be the greatest worldwide, decided to print a series of useful how-to's on their cards, which varied from everyday tasks (boiling potatoes) to rare situations (stopping a runaway horse). The majority of them are unbelievably clever and practical.

The entire set of life hacks is currently part of the NYPL's George Arents Collection. Take a look at some of the smartest ones below. Don't forget to comment for your favorite!

  2. Hello,
    I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful
    to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex
    because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I
    wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in
    the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of,
    especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he
    dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.
    When I asked him why he kept sleeping with me even though he was in a
    relationship, his response was because I wanted it, and he wants me to be
    happy. But obviously what would make me happy would be to have him all to
    myself. That was when i read about Dr alexzander on how he help people in
    saving their relationship and i was really desperate for his help. There
    were things in our relationship that were tough. We traveled for 4 months
    right in the beginning, and it was hard due to different expectations. When
    we returned our living situation was unstable which caused a lot of stress
    on my end. And when I ask why he didn’t give me a chance to make things
    better he said he gave me tons of chances. Oh, and he compared our
    relationship with his past. He says that things were great, and then they
    went bad really fast, and that why his back with is Ex. Because it at least
    took them years for things to get that bad. So i was very sad and
    disappointing and decided to contact this spell caster for help with tears
    running out of my eyes and Dr alexzander promised to make things right in
    my relationship and also assured me that my boyfriend is going to come back
    to me within 78hrs. At first i was shock and didn't believe him because i
    thought it was impossible to do. But i gave it a try and trusted him. Dr
    alexzander asked for my details and his, then guarantee me of his return.
    Truly my ex lover started calling me and also begging me to forgive him and
    that's his willing to give us a second chance, then promised me never to
    love any other woman apart from me. it all seem like a miracle to me till
    now. Dr alexzander. Words can't express how i feel right now. it been 2
    month now since you caste that love spell for me and nothing have gone bad
    between us. his now caring more than ever and also the loving kind of Man i
    have ever wanted for myself in life. I thank you Dr alexzander for saving
    my relationship. Indeed you are the best. I want to use this media to share
    my testimony for the whole world to see and know that there is still hope
    in your broken relationship, No matter how bad it seems don't give up hope
    and also contact this man who saved my own. you can reach him through his
    website address http://alexzanderhightemple-com.webs.com or contact him
    direct with his email address [email protected] I thank you
    Dr alexzander for helping me and i will always share my testimony in every
    social media or place i may go to.
