What is the difference between affect and effect?

I get the two of these mixed up all the time and have no idea what the difference is.

Affect is a verb, some action which changes the result of other possible outcomes Effect is the result of an action, the end result or new outcome after actions have occurred. If you affect something, it will create an effect on the outcome of the events that might have otherwise happened.
