Let's face it, we need all the help we can get.
We're college students on the verge of adulthood, and on top of worrying about schoolwork, we've got to juggle a social life, work, a healthy diet, and learning how to spend money wisely (do NOT buy that game with your gas money!).
Hopefully, these five tips/life hacks will manage to make life a little bit easier. I only wish someone had told me about them sooner!
1. Rolling up clothes instead of folding them
Running out of space in your dresser? Try rolling up your clothes to save space! This is also a handy trick when packing a suitcase for trips.
2. Using towels to cool down

If your room is hot and stuffy, hang a damp towel over an open window!
3. Microwave two things at once
If you're in a hurry, try using a microwavable mug to warm up two things at once!
I promise this won't happen:
