PSA: DIY vs “Life Hack”

Note: If this is your first time to TotalFluff, please visit this brief explanation. Thanks!

Greetings, readers.

I have encountered a new problem on the Internet concerning terminology: People are getting confused between “Life hacks” and “DIYs”.

I am here to elaborate.

If you are making something yourself that you can purchase, such as a cat bed using hangers and a t-shirt, that is a Do It Yourself (DIY) project.

If you are doing something to make life easier, that does not end up as a final product that you could sell for money (such as heating towels in the dryer right before giving a dog a bath, to make the dogs less unhappy about the cleaning ritual), that is a life hack.

Thank you, and have a nice day.

About Fluffy McGiggles

Greetings, reader! I am Fluffy McGiggles. In my world, I was an actress of the strongest sort, the melodramatic sort. Recently, I find myself confined to this... website, as its anthrompomorphization and personality. The Webmaster and I have a bit of a dispute as to how this should be run. The Webmaster can change anything I do, but I can also change anything the Webmaster does. However, the Webmaster can also delete me at will. So that means I'm temporarily behaving myself. This is my own choice, however, contrary to anything The Webmaster may say. So, don't blame me for the over-the-topness of the website. You have been warned.
