32 Genius Inventions That Will Make Your Life Easier


How did we live without these things in our lives?

1. Battery Storage Organizer

A few years ago, I learned that tossing all the batteries randomly in a drawer actually decreases their lifespan. And well, it’s hard to find the ones you need. This awesome battery organizer saved my life. It comes with a battery tester, too. WTF? Where you been all my life?!?
