lifeprotipsWe all know how hard it is to be a student. From juggling studies to our own (non-existent) social lives, many of us could use some helpful tips for making life easier. Whether you need help in lowering your everyday living expenses, you’d like to make the most with your wallet, or you just want your student experience to be hassle-free, these deals are for you. Tip #1: Freeze your leftover coffee into ice cube trays. When the cubes are frozen, just add milk and you will  have instant iced coffee! You can also use them to cool your coffee without watering it down.

Tip #2: If you want to buy the cheapest airline tickets, use your browser’s incognito/private browsing mode. Websites use cookies to track your searches, so if you’ve found a “cheap” ticket after looking around, it will cost more. If you’ve found a good deal and revisit the webpage later on in the day, you will find that the price has gone up. Incognito mode will dis­able the storage of data in cookies, so you can browse the web without leav­ing any history.  Tip #3: Do you get warm too eas­ily at night? Are you always flipping your pillow to get to the cold side? Try bamboo pillowcases and sheets, since bamboo blends (such as rayon) are more breathable and are at least 2-3 degrees colder than other bedding.

Tip #4: Are you tired of typing out your email address on your phone? Save your address as a keyboard short­cut, and you will never have to type it out again. This really helps if you have accounts on many sites and need to sign in fast.

Tip #5: Get rid of the crumbs in between your keyboard from last night’s dinner. Use the sticky side of a post-it note to pick up dust and un­wanted leftovers. Now you can start writing that essay without having a reminder of your previous meal.

Tip #6: Need a ride from an air­port? Walk to the departures level and take a normal city taxi to avoid getting ripped off. The arrivals section will be full of taxis that have made deals with the airport, so they can charge more.

Tip #7: Need to start a campfire but forgot to bring some kindling? Surprisingly, Doritos will do the trick. Never will you be hungry or trying to search for small twigs again.
