11 Things You Shouldn’t Leave For School Without

When you first arrive at college you will be introduced to problems that you never knew existed. While no list will ever include a solution to all of your ills, this one hits on some things that you may not have considered.

Here are some cool and fairly undiscovered websites which will solve many of your everyday issues.

Trust me – finding these sites now will save you a ton of time.

    • Campusi.com – Instead of looking through dozens of different websites for books, this websites finds the cheapest books offered on the internet, and shows the prices from all the other websites as well. 
  • GetChunkit.com – Instead of clicking from link to link, this add-on is able to mine every link on a web page and pulls out the information for you. Makes researching 10x faster. 
  • Instacalc.com – Online calculator that can do everything, and allows you to share your calculations with others online. 
  • Ottobib.com – Enter the book’s name or ISBN, and this website does your bibliography for you in any format. 
  • Bugmenot.com – Bugmenot lets you find and share disposable logins for popular websites that force you to register.
    Also use “email.bugmenot.com” for quick disposable email accounts.
  • Teleflip.com – Have your emails forwarded to your phone as text messages. 
  • eFax.com – Nobody has a fax machine in school. So when you want to receive faxes, just use eFax. eFax will give you a phone number that you can give to people, and your faxes will show up in your inbox. 
  • Qipit.com – Take a photo of your school notes or other documents, and this service will turn them into a readable, taggable document. 
  • FranceRadio.net – Because you need to stop using Youtube for your music. And because downloading at school is a no-no. 
  • Zoho.com – If you love free things and can’t stand Microsoft, then this office suite (and much more) is for you. 
  • A hug from your dog.
