This woman is brilliant.


Clare Potts, a 28-year-old fashion and lifestyle blogger from England, solved all of our problems by discovering you can hack your fridge to dispense wine instead of water.


Immediately recognizing her own genius, she tweeted pictures of her successful operation, and they quickly went viral.


“We’ve just bought a house and we’re in the process of buying all the grown up things we need,” Potts told Mashable in an email, “My boyfriend Joe was telling me [the fridge] came with a wine rack and I just said ‘why don’t we just put it in the water cooler?’ It seemed like the obvious thing to do,” she joked.


When asked how it works, Potts said, “Exactly the same as if you’re filling [the fridge] with water, just add wine in the water tank…and use the tap as normal.”


“It needs to be washed out after though so it doesn’t get clogged,” she advised, “Oxidized wine is not nice so drink fast!”


Although they won’t be using the wine dispenser all the time, Potts revealed she and her boyfriend would certainly use it on occasion. “Definitely for our house warming and New Year’s Eve,” she said.


Here’s a life-hack we should absolutely try at home.
