If you are going to use a tool effectively, spend some time seeing what that tool can actually do. I wish that Visual Studio had better discoverability options. I thought that I would post some productivity tips and tricks sites that I have run across lately as well as a couple of must have products..

Two great productivity enhancers are
CodeRush™ with Refactor!™ Pro – http://www.devexpress.com/Products/Net/IDETools/CodeRush/
ReSharper – http://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/
Whichever you chose, at least chose one. It is well worth the money spent.
