How to Automate the Boring Parts of Your Life

Life may be sweet here at UC Davis, but parts of it sure can be tedious sometimes. Lifehacker has some great advice about how to make some of the boring bits bearable.

Amazon Subscribe & Save and Emergency Deodorant

Maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe you haven’t, but Amazon lets you setup reoccurring orders that get shipped automatically. It takes like 5 minutes to setup and has saved me so much frustration. I used to be the guy running to Target on the way out to buy a little thing I like to call “emergency deodorant.” I’ve found myself standing in the deodorant aisle nonchalantly applying some Old Spice before taking it up to the register more times than I can count.

It was surprisingly hard to come up with ideas for using Subscribe and Save, so if you need some inspiration, check out theĀ list of things Amazon automatically sends me. Fair warning: It’s hilarious to open your door to a UPS guy carrying a 40-pack of toilet paper, IN THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING.
