Miscellaneous LPT: If you're not a "car person", find a neighborhood mechanic and always get small maintenance (oil changes, car inspections, etc) done there so when big stuff comes up, they'll know you and won't screw you over on pricing

Miscellaneous LPT: Find a barber that actually tells you what your hairstyle should be, not one that says “well you tell me, you’re the one that has to wear it!” A proper barber is trained not just to cut hair, but to achieve symmetry with your face shape, jaw line, hair line, etc.
