Small Savings – Big Fortune

  1. Use baby oil to remove eye makeup. Approx 25 cents per oz. Works extremely well and many name brand eye makeup removers can cost $4.50 per oz. Savings at least $4.25. 

Baby oil Gel – This also makes for a great body oil. Soaks into the skin easily. Savings $4.00 or more.

 

2. Mens shaving gel – recent check at Jet.com found that a 14 ounce container of mens shave gel sold for #3.76. The same quantity of similar wines shave gel was $5.35. Savings $1.58

3. Routinely call or write – To your cable company, internet provider or tv services to see what they will do to keep you loyal. Netflix for example offered a free month of service. Savings $8. 

These companies in Australia, not so much. Not enough competition so not so eager to please

Not Feeling Well? Click Here

Did you know according to Pew Research Centre that 61% of Americans search the internet for medical info.
It seems that too much privacy can be bad for your health and sharing your health problems may actually cure or at the least give you some relief. It appears when patients swap health stories their information and wisdom sharing is far better than what they learn at the doc’s.

You are able to discuss reactions to different drugs, symptoms you have, discuss medical tests you may have had with others with similar disorders.

There is room for concern when it comes to health sharing sites because of overload of data and misinformation. The wisest thing to do of course is combine online info with your Doctor.

Many Americans are not insured so going to see the doctor can be a financial burden. Maybe with some discussion online you are able to solve your problem and save that trip to the doctor.
