OK, so this is super simple, but saved me a bunch time, and I'm sure there are a bunch of these little tips people have developed. Here is one that is a super quick way of bending the wires for resistors:

Only works if your hole spacing is the same as the width of your tool.

However, you can get a tool that has most common hole spacings premeasured - http://evilmadscience.com/partsmenu/68-bender - I have one and it's great

I actually have one of those (mine's blue though), but I thought it was a cool idea
