Have you ever had a busy day filled with little tasks that added up to practically nothing, walking away at the end of the day, you realize you just worked for 8 hours straight and have nothing to show for it? You’re not alone. We all have days like this. Sometimes, the key to being productive has nothing to do with how long you work, but rather how you organize your time. The following are 5 ways that I improve my productivity on a daily basis. If they don’t apply to you or your career directly, think about modifying them or pulling out key points to become more productive yourself.
Most mattress manufacturers recommend that you rotate your mattress to allow it to wear evenly and prolong its lifetime. This is especially important if you have a partner that you share your bed with. If you and your partner are different heights and weights, then you will need to rotate it to prevent it from getting too worn in some areas, but not others. The concept is not unlike rotating the tires on your car, allowing them to wear evenly as well.
So how do you flip a mattress? Do you flip it the long way, or the short way? What way did you rotate your mattress last time? This past weekend, I came up with an easy system that is pretty straight forward and will help you remember when and how to flip your mattress.
Yesterday I found something that I had to share. With Christmas only a month and a half away, if you haven’t started thinking about shopping, now’s the time.
I found a site yesterday while shopping for new shoes online. The site is MrRebates.com. Yes, I’ve included my referral ID in that URL. You’ll see why in a second. Let me cut to the chase and describe the big picture.
Mr. Rebates makes money because they have a big list of web sites where you can go to shop. Each time you click through Mr. Rebates and buy something, they get a percentage of your purchase price. Lucky for you though, Mr. Rebates will give you a chunk of that percentage back. On my shoe purchase, I received 5% back. On top of that, Mr. Rebates gave me $10 just for signing up.
As an added bonus, Mr. Rebates keeps a current list of coupons for most of the sites that it lists, so you save even more. Yesterday, I saved 20% off the purchase price of my shoes.
But wait… There’s more: For every person you refer to MrRebates.com, you will receive 20% of their cash back money (at no cost to your friend of course).
Last but not least, if you’re Canadian there’s the added bonus of our strong Canadian dollar right now. This morning, 1 CAD = 1.10022 USD.
Purchase price minus coupon discount minus cash back minus $10 sign-up bonus minus referral bonus minus USD exchange
It’s practically stealing!
Last year I did about 60% of my Christmas shopping online. It was quick and relatively easy if you start early. You get to avoid malls and now, you can enjoy some of the cheapest prices on the net. This year, I’m going to try and do 100% of my shopping online. You should try it too. Why not start your Christmas shopping today. Go visit MrRebates.com.
