Commuting to work. It's up there with the weather and colds are some of our favourite things to complain about. But unlike the incessant drizzle and man flu, there is something we can do about the dead-time we spend travelling to and from work. Keep your sanity as the irritating bloke in the neon Lycra runs over your feet with his fold-up bike AGAIN with our guide to making more of your commute:
Get an E-reader For Less With Currys Promo Codes
I'm definitely guilty of claiming I don't have time to do a lot of things. Exercise, housework and reading being the most frequently abandoned activities! But unlike the first two in that list, reading is something that most of us genuinely do wish we did more often. Why not take advantage of our discount codes at Ebuyer or Currys voucher codes and invest in an e-reader? There are so many on the market that you're bound to find one that fits in your bag without taking up valuable space or weighing a tonne. Plus the real genius is that you can pull off the literary-buff look while nobody on the train is any the wiser that you're actually catching up on a bit of Fifty Shades of Grey rather than War and Peace!
Invest In an Audio Book With Amazon Discount Codes
If you drive to work then an e-reader probably isn't the commuter must-have for you... But what about trading in your local radio station (with its extensive playlist of 4 songs as the festive tunes start doing the rounds) for an audio book or even a language course on CD? Most of us fancy the idea of being able to speak another language, so use our great discount codes for Amazon or Scholastic voucher codes and brush up on your Spanish conversation skills on the way to work. Impress your friends and make some 'new acquaintances' on holiday next year. Ok so we're not making any promises of a holiday romance, but it might make that 'conversational French' on your CV a little less of a white lie...!
Get a Great Sound System With Our HMV Discount Vouchers
There's always one person on the train who thinks everyone wants to hear their conversation about Sharon's drunken escapades last Saturday or how Gary has definitely cheated on Tracey. Other people’s phone calls can be amusing but are usually just plain irritating. Why don’t they understand the universally accepted signal for 'shut up' - the head shake, tut and furious stare at the 'quiet carriage' sign? I'm probably not the only one who often starts the day annoyed at the unnecessary noise of some inconsiderate stranger before I've even set foot in the office, so if you're not already in on the trick, noise isolating headphones will change your life. Block out the racket and use our voucher code for Maplin to kit yourself out and make your favourite album the only thing you hear between your front door and the office. We can even hook you up with a discount on that too - we've got voucher codes for HMV!
Invest Your Time In Technology With Our Electrical Discount UK Promo Codes
Finding time to tick things off the never-ending and ever-increasing to-do list is a part of our everyday lives. Buying a tablet computer could seem extravagant, but if you think of it in terms of man hours saved using it on the go for online shopping, the impending mountain of Christmas present research and purchases, personal admin and organisation, it can be money well spent. We also have voucher codes for Electrical Discount UK so you can treat yourself and start clawing back some of those commuting hours spent plotting to smack the bloke picking his nose behind his 'Evening Standard' with your handbag and using them for more productive purposes.
Although honestly, nobody would blame you if you did!
