1. numerous methods, a variety of ways (to do something)
there is more than one way to skin a cat
This idiom means there are many different approaches or ways of doing something other than the most popular. You might say this to remind someone there might be an approach or solution that they may not have thought of yet: "I can't seem to get this diagram to work. There's too much information." "Well, there's more than one way to skin a cat. Have you thought about making a video instead?" This idiom is a bit gruesome in its origins - 'to skin' something means to remove the skin - so maybe don't use it with your animal loving friends!
