Having trouble while multiplying numbers in double digit or larger is not a problem with a simple trick. Estimate the number to the nearest multiple of ten and put a zero at the end of other number to get the approximate answer and them subtract the small amount you get as the difference in the approximated multiple of ten and the real number.

10- Pinch the pongs of electric switch to attain better grip:

There are different sizes of electric sockets and it is commonly observed that not every switch fits exactly in every socket. It can be a headache to put the switch back in socket again and again after it falls due to loose grip. Got a life hack for that too, press the prongs a little from both sides to increase the grip and save your day.

It is amazing how the human brain works. It often stops working when required and it can cause some important task undone as you can’t remember that. Life hacks can share the load with the brain to do what’s required. Always keep a to do list in your mobile and computer device to keep track of time and not to forget any important task to increase your value.

12- Use of sticky notes to clean keyboard:

Sticky notes are a very handy life track. They can be helpful even after their task is done. Use them to remind yourself about the important things to be done and once they are done, don’t throw them directly. Move them between the keys of your keyboard from the sticky side to get the dust and dirt to keep your keyboard clean and dust free.

13- Dust bin care:

Having a dust bin and throwing all the waste in it directly can be unhealthy. It can produce some annoying smell and some waste can stay stuck to the bottom due to some liquid drops that fall in it from any source like juice or fruit remains. A very useful life hack is to keep a used plastic bag or an old newspaper at the base to avoid all this keep the dust bin clean.

14- Use envelopes to arrange documents:

Being active in society and dealing with a lot of paper work can be tedious. Documents of different tasks can get mixed and finding any paper at required time can be hard. Always keep some large envelopes to avoid this fuss. Keep the different papers in different envelopes to avoid mixing and once done, send them or whatever is to be done with them to get the empty envelope back.

15- Keep record of your expenses:

It is a healthy habit to keep record of your expenses. One can use any diary or paper to do so but what if it is lost? It can even be very hard to keep all that and writing everything can produce a lot of paper to handle. Use a simple life hack to save yourself and make a spreadsheet for daily expenditure. Make a generic sheet once and then use that for every month or year as you desire.
