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.
