5 Websites that Could Change Your Life

The internet is changing how we are entertained, how we communicate, how we do business, and how we live life. Without the internet, I wouldn't have a job!

I love lists on the internet letting me know about awesome sites, so I thought I would make one myself. We have all been to Youtube and Facebook, now here are some lesser known sites that are awesome. Warning: going to these sites could change your life.

  1. Yelp -- Yelp has user reviews of local stores and restaurants that give a customer's opinions about the experience. You can search by location, name, type of establishment, or any combination of the above. Great for finding new places to try in your area.
  2. CourchSurfing-- If you have been bit by the travel bug, or have a job where you travel a lot, this site is for you. This site is perfect for travelers looking to find a couch to crash on and make connections in the place they are visiting. Think about it, instead of going to a new city, paying to stay in a hotel and not knowing anybody, you can have a place to stay for free and someone to show you around. The ratings and references system keeps people informed and safe as can be. I wish I had known about this sooner!
  3. eHow -- eHow and its sisters, HowStuffWorks and WikiHow, all capitalize on the fact that people turn to the internet to fill in the blank for "How do you do __________?" From the normal "How to Make a Fruit Smoothie" to "How to Get Rid of a Sunburn Fast", these sites help you know how to do something.
  4. GasBuddy -- With summer just around the corner, it is inevitable that gas prices rise along with the temperatures. One way to spend less on gas is by using GasBuddy, the site that tells you where the cheapest gas is in your area.
  5. RetailMeNot -- When buying an item online, do you wish you had a coupon code to put in the blank on the checkout page? RetailMeNot is a community that lists different coupon codes that actually work! Every time you buy something online you should check out this site to save some money. I normally save around $15 when I use this.
