Real Life Cheat Codes

A community sourced list of "life hacks" and life tips that should hopefully help you navigate life a little easier. This was once a popular AskReddit submission a few years back. I really liked all the different ideas, but I haven't seen it come back, so I decided to start it here. I have posted a few of my favorites from a prev. list as examples
  1. Try turning it off and on again.
  2. If your credit card magnetic stripe starts to get worn down, and doesn't always read in a card reader, use the plastic bag trick. Put the card in a plastic grocery bag and swipe it. If you want a permanent solution, apply a piece of cellophane tape.
  3. In large shopping malls take a picture of the directory board with your phone so that you don't have to return to it.
  4. Throw some pieces of TP in toilet to reduce splashing.
