I've been hearing about so many winter life hacks and tips over the last few weeks, probably because Mother Nature has hit us New Englanders with several snow and ice storms in between our 50-degree days and fluctuating temps.

And who doesn't want an easy winter?

Let's look at the rundown of these 25 life hacks that'll make your New England winter much more of a breeze.
