Life moves by pretty fast so who can blame us when we want to find the best ways to make the most? These 7 life hacks that every girl should know will help you do just that!
1. Move The Coffee Machine In Your Room
Now, this life hack may only work if you live alone or are the only person in your house that likes coffee, unless you’re willing to shell out for your own coffee machine but if you want to wake up to the smell of coffee then move the coffee machine to your bedroom. Set your alarm 5 or 10 minutes before when you want to get up, have your mug and coffee pods organised the night before so that you can just press the button and go back to sleep for those extra 5/10 minutes and then wake back up again to the smell of coffee. Please, just remember to give it a wash.
2. 2-In-1 Shampoo and Conditioner
One of the best life hacks on this list is to use 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner instead of regular shampoo and then condition again for extra sleek and shiny hair. Do this as often or as little as you need to achieve the shine you desire.
3. Save All Of Your Coupons
It may sound a little ridiculous to save every coupon you ever get but you should! Sign up to every store loyalty card or coffee shop points system, eventually, these will add up. Many stores hold double or even triple points events, offer discounts exclusives, sale sneak peeks, and competitions to members of these loyalty programs. These come in extra handy around holidays like Christmas or Black Friday when these members can get extra discounts.
4. Slow Cooker Dinners
The humble slow cooker is one of the greatest inventions that man has blessed ourselves with. After a long, tiring day at work who can be bothered making a good nutritious dinner? Absolutely no one! Well, with said humble slow cooker you can have just that ready for you walking in the door. Simply turn on in the morning before you leave the house and fling in some chicken and a sauce of choice then leave to simmer through the day and voila, delicious meal ready for you coming home. It’s as easy as that.
5. Listen To Podcasts
Podcasts are one of the greatest life hacks not only just for girls, but for everyone all over the world. Stay informed on local and global news, keep up to date with the beauty community, even have a laugh and listen to a comedy podcast, there’s one out there for everything! Even listen to e-books, it will make you sound more intelligent in conversations and can be done on the go; on your daily commute, while doing your makeup, in the gym, or even from the shower. Podcasts are the future of the busy, working woman!
6. Turn Your Laptop Off
This one may seem silly, obvious even but it is one that we are all guilty of regardless of whether we admit it or not. By leaving your laptop on standby, just closing the lid over rather than shutting down, this can lead to problems with battery life and you will find yourself needing to charge your laptop more often that you should.
7. Count Calories
One of the best life hacks if you’re looking to lose weight I’ve found is by calorie counting. This can be done with apps on your phone, personally, I like Nutracheck. By keeping a track of your calorie intake, you become more aware of what it is that you need to cut out of your diet and by using apps on your phone or Fitbit, you can also monitor how many calories a day you’re burning which can be liked with your calorie intake, making it that much easier to lose the weight you want.
