Avoid that rust in a pinch

"For those who use shaving gel that come in aluminum cans: before you put it in the shower stall, use clear nail polish to make a thin coat all along the bottom rim of the can. Let it dry for a few minutes then put it in the shower stall. This will prevent the can from rusting at the bottom/leaving those rust colored rings."

Always have backups. Life can be unpredictable.

"keep a backup purse or toletries bag in ur car dash filled with basics eg. deoderant, perfume, basic makeup, glasses cleaner (if youre blind like me), mini toothbrush and toothpaste, mini brush, some cash etc

It's saved my butt on numerous occasions such as impromptu meetings, having to stay over at a family members house, dates you may need to rush to etc."

"No." is a full sentence.

"Learn the power of saying the word “no”. Set those boundaries for yourself. Life-changing.

Also, using vinegar and baking soda to keep drains clean:"

Girls are not obligated to always be nice.

"This sounds weird, but...not being afraid to be rude.

Manipulative family members, gaslighting ex-partners, dudes on dating apps who keep pushing boundaries, random men who think they're entitled to a conversation, etc..

Some dude trying to talk to you while you're reading or listening to music or working out?

Flat, blunt rejections. An annoyed and sarcastic, "Can I help you with something?"

Some dude interrupted me reading a book to start talking to me about something I wasn't interested in (his Funko collection, and I hate the cheap and ugly little things and would rather pay more for a Figma or Nendoroid, but because I have geek hobbies...) and after repeatedly stating I dislike their aesthetic, I finally flatly replied with, "Wow, that was a really boring story."

Take being a called a cunt or bitch confirmation that it works. If the dude throws a tantrum, don't engage. Just silently watch him. Maybe throw in a nonchalant, "I see that touched a nerve," when he's done if you've feeling sassy.

YMMV, as I'm apparently "intimidating," as I'm well over six feet tall."

Get your money's worth out of everything

"When you can’t squeeze any more product out of a tube container (hand cream, moisturiser, body lotion, etc.), cut it in half using scissors. You’d be surprised how much product can be still in there - sometimes a few days’ or even a week’s worth."

Advice so nice, it bears repeating twice. Always have backups.

"Keep a change of clothes and shoes in the trunk of your car. Always have backup shoelaces. They can be used as a belt. Tie a shoelace through 2 loops on each side of your pants. It works. Trust me on this."
