2. Impress your friends with delicious snacks.

You will be amazed at the difference in a bag of microwave popcorn once salt and pepper are added. It is absolutely life changing — and your friends will notice on movie night. Your delicious snacks will have people coming back for more, and all of a sudden you are the go-to room for the hallway hangouts!
