There are so many websites out there that make our lives so much easier. And yet, search engines don’t always give us exactly what we need. Sometimes the best websites for the task at hand are not at the top our search results. But no worries, here are some handy websites that you surly want to know about.

  1. 10 Minute Mail :- Don’t want to get useless newsletters from websites on your email ? This is the website for you. 10 Minute mail creates an email you can use for singing up and it expires after 10 minutes. You can prolong the expiry time as you like. Click here to go to their website.
  2. 9 Favorites :- Do you like reading but are you tired of purchasing costly books? Do you enjoy shopping but not sure which products are worth spending money on? Then you’ll really like this one. 9 Favorites , in their ‘Books’ section will select the best 9 books on the market and make them available on their website for only 14 days for only 99 cents (€ 0.99).

Give this website five minutes per day and in some time you’ll find yourself speaking fluent French…. or the language of your choice. You can find Duolingo here.
  6. GiftDrawMe :- Every year on father’s day, I struggle to find the ‘perfect’ Gift for my dad. I search the web for ‘dad gift ideas’ but nothing really fits or it costs more than my budget. Giftdrawme was the solution I found. They choose and ship your customized gifts for you. While they’re doing that, you can sit back and focus on your next activity. I also sometimes order a surprise gift for myself when I just need that boost to make me smile and feel loved. You can find the website here.
  7. Coursera :- If you are a bit of a nerd like me, then you love learning. Who needs college when you can learn everything you want right here from the comfort of your home? Coursera has courses from top universities all around the world in almost every topic and language. And guess what? Most of it is free. Find coursera here.
