A hooded sweatshirt! I spotted this tip on Twitter and had to give it a try — and was surprised by how well it works. All you have to do is put on the sweatshirt backwards, so the hood forms a pocket located conveniently close to your mouth. Skip the bowl, pour the popcorn directly into the hood, and munch away.

Another bonus: no bowls or bags taking up limited desk space. And you can keep your keyboard grease-free by either eating the popcorn directly from the hood, kind of like a horse, or push up on the bottom of the hood with one hand to jam the popcorn into your mouth without straining your neck.
