10 ways to make adulting easier

1

Setting up a budget is easy once you start recording your daily expenses.

Apps like Spending, Wallet and Pocket Expense are simple to use and give you a daily, weekly, monthly picture of what you spent.

2

Set reasonable goals for yourself says Kelly Williams Brown, author of “Adulting.”

3

Kelly also says to buy toilet paper in bulk.

4

Store food properly to make your groceries last longer.

Bananas stay fresh on the counter; apples are better in the ‘frig. Keep berries uncovered in the crisper.

5

Un-clutter your closet and your life.

Get rid of all the stuff that doesn’t fit and doesn’t work, including relationships!

6

Going to a business dinner party?

Ask what you can bring. If the host says “nothing,” bring something anyhow – dessert or flowers are safe bets.

7

Do laundry before you run out of socks or undies!

(Have a back up pair, just in case).

8

Seven to 9 hours of sleep are recommended.

The website Sleepyti.me has a bedtime calculator that can tell you the right bedtime and wake up time.

9

When interviewing for a job, show up on time or a few minutes early (no more than 10).

And send a thank you note afterwards.

10

Prepare a one page resume

– and short, punchy cover letter – that sell YOU, even if you love your job.
