I’m surprised that you are still seeing ‘Tips and Tricks.’ I thought they had all been replaced by the godawful ‘hacks.’ As in “Heloise’s Household Hacks.” People are apparently busy ‘hacking’ their laundry by pouring a quarter cup of lemon juice into the whites and hanging them out in the sunshine to naturally bleach them white. At least my great grandmother used to ‘hack’ her laundry this way, though she certainly never knew was a computer or software were.

I wonder how little content would be left online if all of the disposable, cloned, substanceless tip, trick, and hack articles were removed.
