Here’s some shocking news: being a woman isn’t always a walk in the park. Thankfully, some women have shared their best tips, tricks, and hacks that can help make life a little easier for us gals. And the best part is, most of these are useful for everyone! From beauty secrets to household hacks to clothing tricks, this list has time- and money-saving advice for everyone. We never knew clear nail polish could be such a life-saver…

1. Pain-free ponytails

If you have long hair, listen up! Be mindful of just how tight your “low maintenance” ponytail is. The last thing you want is for the hair tie to pull out your precious tresses! Here’s a tip from website Healthline: switch up where on your head you tie your ponytail. Loosening it up and changing its location could save your luscious locks from ruin in the long run.

2. Vaseline for your lashes

This may sound like an old wives' tale, but hear us out: Vaseline on lashes. Yes, petroleum jelly just may be the most useful product in your medicine cabinet! It can not only be used to hydrate dry skin or smooth frizzy hair, but according to Healthline — and grandmas everywhere — it may also help your lashes look thicker. Give it a try! 

3. Icy iced coffee

There’s just something about a bone-chillingly cold iced coffee every morning that women and men seem to crave. If you want your iced coffee to hit extra hard, then consider this interesting tip from website Crate and Barrel: pour coffee into an ice cube tray and freeze overnight. The next morning, add it to your coffee for a double dose of energy! This could help prevent watery iced coffee, too. 

4. Cash and chapstick

When you’re out and about, you may feel a little uneasy carrying cash — especially a significant amount — in your very conspicuous purse or bag. As per website Lifehacker, for some additional peace of mind, clean out an old chapstick tube, tightly roll up some bills, and store them in the tube. Chances are, a thief will want your bag, not your lip balm.
