One day, you realize that you are living a very stressful and messy life. Being a student requires the power of multitasking. Why? You have to master the art of procrastination, study for tomorrow’s exam (or just ask your seatmate for answers), photocopy handouts (if necessary), do your homework, and (of course) the all-night-long shindigs you never miss – that’s why.
So to make your student life easier, here are helpful student life hacks that you might want to share with your friends.
Voila! A Book Holder.
Your pen is not just for writing or twisting your hair up. It can also be a handy book holder for you so you won’t have to deal with your book closing up while you’re reading.
Or To Keep Your Chips Fresh.
Just roll your chip bag up and seal it with your pen. This trick will save your chips from going stale so that you can enjoy them as after-class snacks.
Old Toilet Paper Rolls Can Do Magic.
You won’t have to worry about filling up your garbage can with old paper tissue rolls. You can wrap it up with your favourite scrapbook paper or doodle on it. Then stack it in a rack and put your pencils, pens and scissors in. No more pens rolling on the floor or lost pencils.
Your Class Schedule As Your Lock Screen. Brilliant!
Do you tend to forget what time your next class is? Don’t worry. You will never miss your class with this cool idea. Instead of putting your extreme-close-up photo, use your class schedule for the week as your lock screen. You can always change it back to whatever photo you want at the end of your school week.
Color-Coded Notebooks. Write-o!
If you are the type that wants to jot down every little detail discussed in class, well, here is an organized way to keep your notes. And you will not have the problem of writing a Chemistry lesson on your Calculus notebook. Just use a colour-coded notebook for each of your subjects. It will save you time.
Egg Cartons Will Save The Day.
Your laptop has a problem. It overheats because the fan is broken. Now, you are afraid of getting your legs burnt from long hours of using your laptop. Don’t fret. Here’s a very cheap and accessible solution for that. Leave your egg cartons out of the trash bin. Use it to protect your legs from the harmful heat of the laptop. Plus, it also keeps your laptop from overheating because it has more ventilation.
Instant Speaker In A Solo Cup.
You are on a trip and you forgot your portable speaker. Or, you accidentally sit on it. Now it’s broken. No more audio boost from your speaker friend. But, hey! If you happen to have a plastic solo cup handy, then turn it into a cool speaker. Look! Isn’t it amazing?
It’s Not Just For Your Clothes.
So here’s the deal. You have a paper towel but you have nowhere to put it. Also, there’s your furry friend loves getting their soft but deadly paws onto your paper towels. What you should do next is get that extra clothes hanger, cut it just right in the middle, then insert your paper towel inside. Hang it up where the cuddly pet won’t reach it. Problem solved!
Looking For The Perfect Outfit?
Tired of dumping your clothes one after the other and then realizing that your drawer no longer closes? The solution for that is to neatly fold them one by one, and then arrange them in a vertical position. Extra space plus it saves your time. See, you’ve been doing it all wrong.
Clingy Dust On Your Keyboard? Post-It!
The wonders of post-its! There’s more use for those small and colourful papers you stick on your fridge or along your mirror. They’re not just reminders for groceries or keeping your timetable on the right track. Simply fold it in half, and then slide it through your keyboard tiles and gaps. Goodbye, clingy dirt.
