The Littlest Lifehack

What are those tiny, tiny changes ("life hacks," in the parlance of our times) that make a minute long task take thirty seconds, or a ten second task take five? Examples inside.

Any field is fine, but I'm mostly concerned with stuff that falls under "productivity" (e.g. work tasks, housework) The best examples I can name off the top of my head are:
- Keep stamps in an envelope taped to the box of envelopes.
- Tilt the ice cube tray and pour water on it from the top instead of moving it around horizontally under the spout.
- Rename files in Windows using "F2" instead of clicking on it and waiting.
