    Ella Fitzgerald's famous song "Summertime" captures what we love most about the season: "The livin' is easy." For three whole months, we have opportunities to lounge on the beach, plan picnics in the park, indulge with chilled white wine and frozen treats, and tan on a dock — preferably somewhere remote — with our friends and family.

Take a look at our top 10 favorite tips from Dan Marshall's book, Life Hacks, designed to make your summer livin' a little easier.
