Tip 17: Spelling Hacks

Do you have trouble with spelling?

Is it ‘lose’ or ‘loose’?
Remember this: “The goose got loose.” Both have two ‘o’s!

Is it ‘stationary’ or ‘stationery’?
Remember this: “Stay stationary.” Both have ‘a’s!
Remember this: “Envelopes are called stationery.” Both have ‘e’s!

Is it ‘affect’ or ‘effect’?
Remember this: “‘a’ comes before ‘e’ in the alphabet.” An ‘affect’ is the cause of a change, therefore coming first. An ‘effect’ is the result of a change, therefore coming after.
