Beauty doesnít have to be ExpensiveWritten by Melanie Breeze
Where do you buy your beauty supplies? If you buy them from a department store- you are paying way too much! I was a department store buyer for many years. I was hooked on a particular brand, and I thought that products were only available at department store. I was wrong. With a little bit of time and research, I was able to shave off 50% of my beauty supply bill. Imagine what you could do with extra money. The process is actually really simple. All you have to do is find right websites.
Many of us are hooked on a particular brand of beauty supplies. We have used them for years, and love way that they make us look and feel. The price tag however isnít very pretty. Try doing a search online for your favorite beauty products. You may find that auction sites such as EBay.com have really good deals. Make sure to find out about shipping and return policies. I am a sucker for a free shipping deal, so try to find them whenever possible. You may also be able to purchase product directly from manufacturerís website. Look for online promotions that will give you discounts on items you buy most. Coupon sites can give you even better discounts, so shop around.
Are You Working Too Much or Too Little? Written by Susanne Myers
Are you one of those people who get into something and just works day and night on it? Or are you one of those minimalists who didnít start papers in school until night before they were due? You know scraping by doing bare minimum. That was me in school, but I am getting off topic here.
You may be one of those people that will work like a maniac if it is something they really love, but will drag their feet if it is something very boring and unexciting to them. That last description fits me to T. Guess School just didnít excite me much. Which would explain why I did so much better in College when I got to choose my subjects. Sorry, getting off topic here again.
If you are one of those overachievers, remind yourself why you became a wham in first place. To spent more time with your kids. Go take them to park, play cars, Barbies or Lego blocks for a few hours. Read some books with them. Then put up some pictures in your work area to keep you on track.
If you are one of those that just barely do minimum, make a list each morning of things that have to get done and sort them in order of priority. Get as many of them accomplished as possible and if you get everything on your list done, reward yourself with a nice long bubble bath, a walk in park with your kid, a new manicure or whatever else works for you. Positive reinforcement always worked for me. Just make sure you donít cheat by keeping your list short. Keep it challenging.
