You can never get enough life hacks, people!
It’s a fact of life!
And you’re in luck today because you’re about to see a bunch that we think will really come in handy…you can even call them “cheat codes for your life” if you want to.
Buzzfeed users were nice enough to share some life hacks that we should all check out.
1. Time to accessorize.
“Use accessories to dress up whatever outfit you’re wearing.
Pack accessories and bring them with you so you can always dress yourself up or down in any situation.”
2. Always works.
“Try to get on good terms with the secretaries at your company.
They are the people who can most easily help cover for you when you make a mistake.”
3. Shut ’em down.
“Respond with a friendly and polite attitude even when someone is being rude or a jerk.
It shuts them down 90% of the time.”
4. Work out the anger.
“When you are angry with someone, write down the reason why and sleep on it for a night.
If you are still angry in the morning, talk to them.
This technique has saved me from making a big deal out of relatively small issues.”
“Before you start any household repair, search it on YouTube. At best, you may discover you can fix it yourself.
At worst, you’ve gained some knowledge so you can explain the trouble to a repairman and make sure you don’t get taken advantage of.”
6. Okay, okay.
“Use a VPN to ‘change your location’ to stream content that is not available in your area.”
7. A good one.
“Use a slice of bread to pick up shattered glass.
The consistency and texture picks up even the smallest shards.”
8. Works like a charm.
“Use reverse psychology with children.
If you tell them not to do something, they’ll do it almost every time.”
“Replace the word ‘but’ with the word ‘and.’
For example, rather than saying, ‘I understand your perspective but…,’ say, ‘I understand your perspective and…,’
So even if you disagree, the person your speaking to still feels validated and heard.”
10. Get smart!
“There are hundreds of free certifications and classes you can take online and add to your résumé.
Take a few that are relevant to your career, and throw them on your résumé.
They’ll make you stand out from the other candidates and serve as a conversation starter during your interview.”
“I try my best to only use my debit/credit card once per day.
Obviously there are days that doesn’t happen, but more often than not I use my cards just once in a day so I’m not spending unnecessarily.
It helps me save a lot.”
12. Less stress.
“Don’t get caught up on special dates like an anniversary or Valentine’s Day.
My wife and I celebrate random days whenever we feel like it: We have a fancy dinner on an ordinary Thursday night or celebrate a weekend birthday the week before.
It makes planning way less stressful.”
“If you leave a website with items still in your cart, you’ll likely receive an email offering up to 20% off to complete your purchase.”
“Make friends with people who look different from you.
They will introduce you to other cultures and things you might not have been exposed to otherwise.”
15. You got it!
“Don’t ask your significant other where he/she wants to eat.
Instead, tell him/her to guess where you’re taking them and go to the first place they guess.”
