Unfortunately, it’s still just conceptual. This was the winner of the Core 77 2014 Design Awards. The second it comes into reality, you can bet I will be reposting this with one of my own.

Mint.com
This is an online financial management tool. You can access it computers, tablets, phones, almost everything. It’s really useful for budgeting, and coming to grip with your finances, and it is completely free.
PROS:
It’s free, and requires no software to install on your computer. 
When you connect it to your financial institutions, it will automatically download each transaction you make every night and log it into your ledger. 
It’s very visually pleasing and streamlined to help you budget. 
It will send you email alerts of bills due, weekly summaries of your finances. 
It even recently added a free credit score tracking feature.
CONS:
Lots of advertisements. The whole reason it is free is because you get targeted ads based on your financial information. 
A lot of people have noted the automatic downloads have glitches or problems syncing up is another big problem. 
You also can’t reconcile it with your bank statements, because they assume the data that is downloaded is always correct. Nor can you import old history of budgeting from anywhere else.
The transactions downloaded are automatically categorized, requiring a manual override quite often.
Not a lot of customer support or personal backups of your budget.
YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary):
Security: While the institution that owns Mint.com has a good history of protecting financial information and customer data, the fact remains that you are now putting all your login information for your banks, loans, credit cards, etc. in one place. It’s a huge potential security risk, although it hasn’t happened yet. If you trust Intuit, it’s very useful.
The other thing that seems to give me mixed feelings is the automation of your budgeting information. 6 months ago, I had to take control of my personal finances, and I used YNAB to take control of my finances. The main factor that helped me was manually entering in my transactions from bank statements of personal reciepts. I would have to confront the money I spent every few days to enter it, rather than ignore the bank statements. While some of the features of Mint.com would have helped a lot, that manual entry was really the key part that helped me, and it’s not something here. 
In the end, it’s a free option, and a tool that can potentially help out someone in need of a streamlined way of looking at their finances.

I am going to print this out, laminate it, and keep it with my gloves and spade.

Sounds exactly like the first submission we received so long ago, a real fridge magnet

(via mydrunkkitchen)

Well, I’ve finally got myself settled comfortably into a routine, and took care of the 30 things I had on backlog this past year in RL. So, Lifehackprofessional’s unofficial hiatus is ending.

I’m back, and hopefully by December I’ll have an exciting announcement to make.

PHONEBLOKS:

This is a really cool idea and something I’m 100% behind. Unfortunately, this was more of a social movement for concept product than an actual product just yet.

However, there may be hope for one in the next few years: Project Ara from Google completed a prototype last month. It’s not much, but it is progress beyond “Let’s hope that these companies actually listen”

A Multi-Function Clip That Hides a Toolbox In Your Hair

Um yes!

I still want to bulk buy these and adonize  batch pink.

Apart from being super cool - which it definitely is - the serrated side cuts through braided rope, and though I haven’t seen it in person I’d be willing to bet money the smallest (“flat phillips”) screwdriver picks handcuffs.
Ladies, this is an escape tool.

I’ve now updated the link with the actual place you can purchase this. The “Trolley Coin” is for "shopping carts that take a coin ‘deposit’ to unlock." I don’t know any that does anywhere near where I live, but… I suppose it exists.

The Get More Out of Google Infographic Summarizes Online Research Tricks for Students
This Infographic is brilliant, perfect for any students needing to research. I knew about half of this before I found it, but it’s pretty damn useful.
Good luck and you’re welcome to all students returning to school this year.

Thank you.

For those who would ever need it. -C

reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship

Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.

For Everyone who may need it, and even for those who don’t.

Return to Normality

For the past few weeks, I’ve been struggling to get by at work and with several issues at home. I’ve also managed to find several good lifehacks to test out or just queue, but never the time to actually get the well-researched and finished product out.

But I have at least 3 days, perhaps a week, before I start a new job. I quit my old job officially just now, so you guys should be in for a solid month of lifehacks.

High Fidelity Bed Canopy

Enjoy the comfort of your bed like never before. Featuring a full computer system, game console, reading lights, projection screen, and more, this bed canopy is tailored to suit all of your comfort and entertainment needs. Sold on HiCan.

Surprisingly this one is real, and not just concept art. Getting it is enormously difficult, both financially and the actual ordering of it. Once you enter the HiCan site, just under the logo in tiny print is a link titled “order.” Click that and fill out your information to get a brochure and further instructions to actually order this. The site hasn’t been updated since 2012 and they “say” they have a waitlist, but I’m not sure if that is still accurate.

It also cost 42,000 Euros, (at the moment $56408.52) just for the actual product. That does NOT include shipping, taxation, nor installation costs. The offices are in Italy, and the two stores are in London and Miami Florida, according to the site, but I have been unable to turn up anything that suggests they are still in the location stated.

we don’t usually reblog/post cosplay stuff, but a friend pointed it out to me and i haven’t seen it elsewhere SO maybe it can help someone!

Useful for cosplay AND if you’re applying for a job that views tattoos as ‘unprofessional’. 

Everyone’s basically summed up all the benefits in the posts above, so I really don’t have much more to say.
