When it comes to holiday shopping, a lot of us are making things way harder than they have to be.

The Journal for Consumer Research, Inc. found that we tend to avoid getting people on our Christmas list the same gift, even if we think that person will really like the gift.

Apparently we look at buying the same gift for multiple people as taking the “easy way out.

For the study, researchers conducted a series of six experiments to see how participants selected gifts for others. Turns out, when picking a gift for one person, the participants were more likely to choose something they thought the recipient would genuinely like. But when shopping for multiple people, participants were hesitant to get more than one person the same type of present (even if they thought both recipients would like it).

"People will avoid getting the same gift for more than one person because it feels like the easy way out," says co-study author Mary Steffel, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the department of marketing at the University of Cincinnati. What's more, they'll do this even when they know the recipient might prefer something else.

The solution? Just focus on what you think each person on your list would like—and don't worry if that sometimes is the same thing for multiple people.

As difficult as it is to admit, there are some things about life that will never change. Politicians will always do shady things. Your mom will always be slightly passive aggressive at the dinner table. Your feet will always hurt after an hour in high heels. Resist these truths if you want, but it’s futile. Life is so much easier when you accept the inevitable. Below are some things that you shouldn’t waste your energy fighting. The sooner you give in, the better. Trust us on this one.

1. People act weird in elevators.

2. Your parents will never stop annoying you.

3. Chicken soup does cure colds.

4. You should buy the size you wear and not the size you wish you wore.

5. Quick fixes and workarounds usually just make things worse.

6. Eating lots of junk food makes you feel like shit.

7. You sleep better with clean sheets and life makes more sense when you get enough sleep.

8. Women act like crazed wildebeests at sample sales.

9. You should call your grandparents even if you don’t feel like it.

10. Your partner will never be able to read your mind.

11. Public transportation brings out the worst in human nature.

12. Manicures chip.

13. You are going to get grey hairs.

14. Spring for the insurance coverage.

You know the people. The ones you block from your Facebook feed because their status updates are just so boring/annoying/attention-whoring that you can’t stand to read them, and for some social reason, you don’t want to unfriend them. Don’t be that person, mmkay? Take a moment to think about whether you really want to share a particular thought with the Internet, and the only way your friends and family will digitally drop you is if you steal the last slice of cake at your next get-together.

Here are 8 questions to ask yourself before you hit enter on that Facebook status.

  1. What’s the purpose of your update? Are you conveying information? Sharing something funny? Make sure you actually have a reason for posting. No one cares if you had chicken for dinner unless it was the best chicken ever and everyone needs to try this recipe because zomg it’s to die for.
  2. Who’s your audience? Your boss, your dad, and your friend’s 14-year-old daughter don’t need to know you did shots off the bar with your hands tied behind your back.
  3. How many times have you updated today? If you need to update more than three to five times a day, sign up for Twitter.
  4. Is it vague? I guarantee you’ll get more support and prayers if you actually tell people what you need the prayers for. Otherwise keep it off the net.
  5. Is it passive aggressive? If you included the phrase some people, while thinking of someone specific yet not mentioning them, you’re being passive aggressive. Just hit delete and maybe work on your conflict resolution skills.
  6. Is it something you’d be interested in reading in someone else’s feed? Chances are if you’re not interested in reading it about another person, they’re not interested in reading it about you.
  7. Will your friends hate Jesus if they don’t repost it? Just no. Jesus doesn’t base His love for you on how many things you’ve re-blogged for Him.
  8. Is it FarmVille? They have settings to only post to other people that play the game. Please use them

You can learn a lot about the guy you’re dating by just looking in his fridge. At least that's what John Stonehill, the creator of the dating advice site Check Their Fridge, says. So next time you head over to a guy's apartment, skip snooping in his medicine cabinet or bedside table and go straight to the cold box for everything you need to know.

What's he worth: There is a direct connection between a dude's finances and what's in his fridge. First check out the unit − is it a high end Sub Zero or a 1970s special he got from his Grandparents before they moved to Florida? Then check the food inside. Is it name brand or generic? This isn't about being a foodie − it's about spending an extra 50 cents on Tropicana or going with the no-name grocery brand of OJ.

How clean is it?: If his fridge is a disaster, his life probably is too. A gros,s dirty fridge could mean that's how he lives his life. Be cautious of a guy who is overly clean and organized too − that could be a warning sign for someone who is a little too rigid!

Does he like to party?: If the fridge is packed with beers and wine, this is a guy who likes to have fun and is ready for his boys to come over any time, day or night. Be prepared to go out a lot and spend most of your free time with his friends!

Healthy Foods: You want to see a variety of produce and junk − not too much of one and not the other. If you only see kale and raw carrots or hot pockets and bagel bites… run! If there is a normal mix of both, he is going to be even-keeled and fun to hang out with. (Glamour)

Here’s a rundown of some foods that you should make a part of your diet now because they’re actually healthier than you think:
  • Spaghetti and Meatballs – The ground beef has iron and protein, the tomato sauce gives you antioxidants, and the pasta gives you energy. As long as you limit yourself to three ounces of meat and a cup of whole-wheat pasta, you’re in good shape.
      
  • Peanut Butter – While peanut butter does contain fat, you’re also getting protein, fiber, and vitamin E.
       
  • Burritos – Burritos can be a healthy choice when filled with vegetables, rice, beans, and just a little meat. Just lay off the sour cream and cheese to keep the calories and fat in check.
      
  • Eggs - Eggs do contain some cholesterol, but you can eat up to two eggs per day without messing up your cholesterol levels. (FoodNetwork.com)
