#6: Hack Your Wii
If you own a Wii Nintendo system from the early 2000s, you may have never realized that you also have a handy tool. Wii Fit was an exercise system to use with your console, and it came with a balance board. The board was part of several activities and games but also served as a scale to measure your weight loss progress.
So, this family found another way to put their balance board to good use. Why not use it to weigh household items, as well? We may or may not have also tried this trick to weigh our cats. Pro tip: hold on to the cat while you do to make them stay in place, then subtract your weight. You’re welcome!
