10 Life Hacks That Will Make You Choke on Bile (Your Own)

1. Not washing your hair every day is a real time saver.  Let dry shampoo be your friend.

2. Sonic sells plain carbonated water.  It's helpful if you like the fizz, but don't need the sugar, caffeine or aspartame.

3. No desire to iron?  Put your wrinkled garment in the dryer with a damp towel and turn it on.

4. Winning the lottery would really solve some problems.  You should buy a ticket.  Preferably a winning ticket.

5. The recipe appearing on the cover of any Southern Living is probably awesome, and there's an 86% chance you'll never make it.  That said, there is one recipe in SL each year that you should make and will end up in your standard rotation.  Chances are it's a soup.  Good luck.

6. It helps if you know what you want.  It helps more if you can make a convincing pitch for why you want it and how you will get it.

7. Keep a few greeting cards in the glove box of your car.  Keep some stamps, too.

8. Speaking of greeting cards.  If you find one you love, get it.  They don't have an expiration date, and if you come looking for it when you need it, you won't find it.

9. If you're not 100% sure of someone's name at your office, calling them something generic like "chief" or "amigo" or "pretty lady" instead makes you seem like a friendly person.  Example, "Hey, buddy!  How was the weekend?"

10. Talking about your feelings is a great way to make people uncomfortable.  Eventually they'll leave you alone, but first, you'll get some free therapy.


Dry shampoo doesn't work for me. I don't know why. It just doesn't. Mind if I spend some time telling you how that makes me feel?
