Here are this week’s Life Pro Tips.
1. Children’s Hospitals do not need donations of stuffed animals. Try hard plastic toys featuring popular characters, craft supplies, board games, and coloring books.
2. Be mindful of poorer friends when suggesting splitting the bill equally in a restaurant. Some people will choose cheaper options because they’re on a budget.
3. When you are trying to resolve an issue where someone else made an error, put the focus on the error and not the person.
Example of this: Instead of saying, “You didn’t send the attachment,” I say, “The attachment didn’t come through, please try sending it again.”
4. Shop the international aisle in the grocery store (or an ethnic foods store) when buying universal items, such as spices, rice, beans, lentils, etc… The same product will be 75-90% cheaper when buying international/foreign brands as compared to the western/national brands.
