Usefull sass @mixins for your toolbox

SASS and other CSS preprocessors like LESS or Stylus are incredibly powerful tools to write faster, better and cleaner code. Some good reasons to use a preprocessor are: DRY (dont repeat yourself) code, timesaving (especially with big projects). easier to maintain code and having organized code.

What are SASS mixins, well a Mixin is a block of code that lets us group CSS declarations we may reuse throughout our site. So these blocks lets us write DRY code which saves us a lot of time.

Below are some basic mixins from my own toolbox. As you can see I do use a lot of mixins to replace vendor prefixes. I will update this list from in time as my own mixin toolbox will grow.
