HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE! We hope that you have been having a fantastic week! It has been busy again here in the office. We started another AMAZING summertime giveaway with our friends at MomsLA! So be sure to kick start your summer the right way and enter to win this prize pack. Also keep checking in with us to get the best savings on all of your essentials this season. From graduation to weddings to summer entertaining, we will make sure that you are getting the most of your money and having a fantastic time.
Sometimes life and work just get a little too stressful and our sleeping habits get all messed up. Lavender has been known to help relax and calm the mind and body, so one of our favorite bedroom accessories is Lavender Spray. All you have to do is spray on your pillow and blankets and then relax in your bed and drift off into a deep slumber.
Breaking in shoes is never a fun experience, especially when blisters and cuts shortly follow. Instead of living through the pain, use this trick to protect your feet! Consider putting some first aid tape inside of your shoes, so that your ankle rubs against a soft material instead of the inside of your shoe. This will make you happier and will save you a trip to the shoe repair shop.
Coconut oil is all of the rage these days, and we are totally on board here. Our new favorite morning routine is oil pulling, which is not only great for your oral health but it has other benefits as well! Many people have seen success with reduced hangovers, TMJ, and teeth whitening! We have been trying this out all week and have been loving it! All you have to do is scoop a tablespoon of the coconut oil and swish it around in your mouth for 20 minutes on an empty stomach and then spit it in the trash when you are done!
Closet storage is always a struggle and shows being thrown all over the place do nothing for organization efforts. With the warm weather just around the corner, this storage trick will save you time and frustration! Cut the bottom of a wire hanger and bend each half into a U-shape to then hang your sandals and flip-flops. This will make them easier to find and clean up your floor, leaving room for additional items!
Summertime is no stranger to ants, so be prepared with this at-home ant killer. With a few simple ingredients and steps, you should be able to rid ants from the problem area pretty quickly! Mix together 1 cup of sugar with 3 tablespoons of boric acid. Then slowly ass 3 cups of warm water and store the solution. When you need it, soak a cotton ball on a lid with the solution and then place where you want. The ants will drink the solution and should disappear shortly after.
We hope you all have a fantastic and safe weekend! If you have your own tips, share them with us!
