Tired of getting water-downed ice coffee? Keep it cold, keep it strong with freezing your leftover coffee in ice cube trays. You can also use milk.

2. Strawberries

Skip the knife and save all the strawberry deliciousness. Use a straw to punch out the stem.

3. Slicing cherry tomatoes

Individually slice teeny tomatoes in half can be a pain and boring. Cut them all in one swift motion. Put them between two small plates or plastic container lids and slice through horizontally. Voila!

4. Juicing lemons
