    Do you know any useful tricks that are not widely known? Maybe you know how to get free movie tickets or a simple hack to improve your phone's performance. Share your tips here.

    My contribution: If your Direct TV is acting slow and sluggish, there's an easy way to clear the cache. Go to channel 001, press these buttons on your remote in this order as fast as possible, red-red-blue-blue-yellow-green. You should see a message on the bottom of the screen that says "cache has been cleared." I usually have to do it a couple of times before it takes and the message is displayed. You should notice a big difference in performance.

    When playing Monopoly, you should focus on buying the property between the jail space and the "go to jail" space (especially the red and orange properties) and avoid buying Park Place and Boardwalk at all costs.

    No means yes.
    The more she struggles, the more she likes it.

    Never push select. Playing that game with two people is too easy.

    When you charge your iphone (only phone i've tried this on) set the brightness to the highest and turn on your wifi. Then when it's fully charged, set the brightness to normal and turn off the wifi.

    The battery will last a lot longer than just charging it without turning those two on.

    For the strikers: Put your boxing hand wraps in an undergarment washing bag when you throw them in the laundry so they don't get tangled and stretched out to oblivion when they go through the washer and dryer.

    Nearly everything is cheaper on Ebay.

    I went to a mall store and a pair of Oakley Keel eyeglass frames were $260 before tax. I went online and at the Oakley store they're $220. Then I went on Ebay and most auctions were ending for the frames were around....

    $60-$80
