Cook Corn on the Cob in a Cooler

Everyone loves corn on the cob. It’s juicy, flavorful, and goes with anything, which makes it a must-have at any barbecue. The only problem is trying to cook enough for everyone to enjoy — which you can solve with this simple life hack.

Find a big cooler and thoroughly clean the inside. Next, bring a large pot of water to a boil (you might need more than one) and pour it into the cooler. Add the corn and close the lid for about 30 minutes, and you’ll have all the corn you need without taking up space on your stove!

No Matter What I Do, I Can’t Lose Weight

With a few medical exceptions, if you aren’t losing weight, it is your fault and you know it. You can lie to yourself about how you are trying your hardest but the scale won’t budge and it’s not your fault all you want. But you know all the times you snuck food that didn’t fit your diet and all the times you skipped the gym, and they all add up and are reflected when you weigh yourself.

Set Your Alarm Earlier

One trick that might help you wake up in the morning is to set your alarm for an earlier time! That way, when your fingers keep reaching for the snooze, you’ll eventually rise and shine at just the right time instead of oversleeping.

It will feel a bit like that glorious moment when you wake up in the middle of the night only to realize that you still have plenty of time left to sleep. It makes those last hours, or minutes, of sleep feel extra soothing.

It’s particularly nice because you’ll still get the satisfaction of sleeping in without actually doing the sleeping in. Brilliant!

Go To Bed Earlier

I know that this is the last piece of advice you wanted to get, but it’s true! If you go to bed earlier, you will feel more rested when morning arrives and it will be much easier to pry yourself out of your cave.

You don’t have to go to sleep ridiculously early to pull this off, though. Just try heading to bed a half hour to an hour before you normally would, and see how it feels. You’ll probably be so happy with the results that you won’t mind doing it again tomorrow!

Do You Want Kids?

One of the most important things to cover with your partner is the baby issue. Do you want children? How many? How do you plan to raise them? If you don’t agree on the kind or size of family you want, there are bound to be some major problems down the road if you do head toward marriage.

How Are You With Money?

Part of getting serious with someone is knowing that you can depend on him/her not only emotionally, but also financially. This not only means that you can count on the other person to support you should you lose your job, but you should also take note of how your partner manages his/her money. If frivilous spending or poor handling of bank accounts and credit cars is apparent, it may be something that needs to be discussed and fixed before you get in too deep. After all, you will most likely be sharing bank accounts if you get married!
