Small Savings – Big Fortune


1. Hire a Haggler – Companies such as BillFixers and Shrinkabill will haggle with your cable TV company or other service providers for one-third to half of your first year savings. BillFixers claims it saves clients an average of $300 per year.

 

2. Become a YouTube handy man – I have friends that use this all the time. The video’s show you how to fix the latch spring on your microwave door and that cold save you $150. It can be used for many household repairs. How and when to plant trees and that could save you killing your very expensive tree. (I have been known to do this).

 

3. Take a Driving class – Some insurers can offer up to 15% off for older drivers who take an online safety course – that’s up to  $675 over three years on a typical policy. Drive-Safely is one of the online sites

Best Buy Wednesday – LED Winter Beanie (11/25/2015)

screen-shot-2015-11-24-at-1-15-29-pm
I saw this on Facebook and thought it would make a fantastic gift. It’s not expensive but a useful one.  I am going to get one for my Grandson who loves the outdoors. I can see this so handy for night time fishing, camping and early morning surfing when it is a little dark. In fact, it would be handy to keep in your vehicle in case of a breakdown and you do not have a flashlight. I am thinking I need to carry one on my motorcycle in case of a night time breakdown.

It is only $13 dollars as it is on a special deal. Great Christmas gift and a practical gift.

10 Unusual Handy Hints

This is an article I found from the ELLE website which I thought was useful. Written by Emily Hebert and Violet Gaynor

1. Old Buttons
Repurpose spare buttons by using them to keep pairs of earrings together: Most buttons have at least two holes in them, so simply place an earring in each opening to neatly store when not wearing.

2. Eyebrow Brush
Stuck without a lint-remover? Use this handy makeup tool to remove unwanted fuzz from your shirt.

3. Dryer Sheets
No time for a shampoo? Rub a dryer sheet on your hair to tame flyaways and make your hair smell shower fresh.

4. Unused Stockings
Create a chic shrug by taking a pair of tights or stockings and cutting off the feet (or use a pair of footless tights to save a step). Place arms where legs would normally go and—voila!—you’ve created a sleek spring alternative to a shawl or cardigan. Take it a step further by cutting slashes into the fabric, à la Monique Lhuillier’s ballerina-inspired fall 2009 collection.

5. Toothpaste
Have yellow nails? Scrub them with toothpaste to remove stains and add shine. You can also add a few drops of lemon juice for extra whitening; it’s a natural bleaching agent.

6. Eggs
Strengthen hair by creating an egg yolk-and-olive oil hair mask. The protein in the egg yolk will toughen up tresses, while the olive oil will act as a conditioning agent.

7. Toilet Paper
Don’t want to splurge on oil blotting sheets? Take a thin toilet-paper square and use it to blot excess oil on your T-zone.

8. Rubber Band
Make room for an expanding waistline by hooking a rubber band through the buttonhole of your pants; secure the other side to the button, and wear a tunic top to cover up your handiwork

9. Hair Conditioner
When you’re low on shaving cream, hair conditioner can provide a smooth, slick barrier between your razor and sensitive skin

10. Oatmeal
Whether you have dry, itchy winter skin or discomfort from summer mosquito bites, mixing cooking oats into your bath will provide instant relief.
