Forget Your Fabric Softener, you don't need it

Nellie's Dryer Balls
Hello HouseHold Tippers!

Today a tip about economizing-

"Skip the fancy fabric softener.
That doesn't mean you have to put up with scratchy clothes! 
Besides being a pain to remember, fabric softener is one of those extra expenses you can cut without sacrificing.
You can still get the soft clothes you love by using those
plastic nubbed balls they sell for your dryer. 
Simply toss the balls in with your clothes
and they'll do the work of that fabric softener for a lot less money."

Get That Expensive Lipstick, it's worth it!

L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipcolour Lipstick 243 Velvet Rose
"Ladies, don't feel guilty
about buying that beautiful new lipstick
next time you are at the department store.
Studies show that more expensive lipsticks
actually have color that lasts longer because they have more pigment in them.
To offset the cost, don't buy the fancy (and expensive) brand-name mascara at your department store.
Study after study shows that most mascaras use the same ingredients,
so use a less expensive version from your drugstore or Target.
You'll look great and pocket some savings!"

All you're paying for is the brand name and the pretty print on the napkins. Store brands work just as well."

This Makeup Remover Really Works!

Revlon New Makeup Eraser Pen (2 Pack)

Hello HouseHold Tippers!

Today, a tip for the ladies:
Have you ever done a little smear of mascara or eyeliner while you're putting on your makeup?
I have.

I saw this Revlon New Makeup Eraser Pen and thought I'd give it a try-

It's Fabulous!  Just touch it on a little smear of makeup and it's gone!

The great thing about this - is that it's a pen; you can wipe off a little spot of makeup without redoing your your face,
and it's fast, and inexpensive, and easy!

Just what I like!

Don't Go Discount on these 2 HouseHold Items

Glad ForceFlex Tall Kitchen Bags, 13 Gallon (120 Bags)

Hello HouseHold Tippers!

I've told you before in my post about going discount on blenders,
not to do it.  I learned it the hard way- so you don't have to :)

Now for a couple of little tips about what not to go discount on-
in your house.

1.  Toilet Paper - this is pretty self-explanatory.

2.  Kitchen Garbage Bags - don't be lulled into discount garbage bags, they really aren't as good or strong and they will break.  Pay the little extra for sturdy bags- they'll hold more and won't tear!

Happy HouseHolds!
