Putting the Lids on This Week's Tip Jars: February 21, 2014

By Shannon Hanrahan  •  February 21, 2014

Happy Friday Everyone! Hopefully you all had a great week and have successfully recovered from a Valentine’s Day sweets overload. We don’t know about you, but we could probably do without candy and baked goods for a few weeks and get back on track. Did you all enjoy your Valentine’s Day and President’s Day? With all the amazing sales this year, we hope you were able to get some good purchases over the weekend. Look forward to our entertainment packed week next week in honor of the Oscars and get tips on how to save on seeing movies.




Were you able to give this tip a try this week with your leftover Valentine’s Day roses? If not, definitely put it on your to-do list! Mix 6 rose petals with 2 tablespoons of rose water, 1 teaspoon of yogurt, and 1 teaspoon of honey. This makes a wonderful facemask that you can leave on for about 10 minutes before rinsing it off. It is all-natural and will leave your skin smooth and smelling beautifully! Check out all of these amazing benefits of rose petals and rose water on your skin.




Baby oil is one of those products that you always want around the house, whether you need it for your skin or for household items. It has so many uses, that you truly get the bang for your buck. If you really want to shine up the chrome in your life, grab a microfiber or cotton cloth and add some baby oil to it, then just wipe down the surfaces that are looking dull and dirty. Keep it in your bathroom and use it for cleaning, shaving, and as a daily moisturizer.




The coconut oil trend is only just beginning in my opinion. Soon it will be a household name and everyone is going to be using it in their cooking and beauty routines; I know that I already am. If your hair is looking a little dry and dull, coat it with coconut oil and then wrap it in a bun overnight. In the morning you can follow your normal washing routine, and you should be left with smooth and silky locks! You can also do the same on your face. Leave it on for about 10-20 minutes and then wipe it off with a microfiber cloth or tissue. You can also leave it on if you would like. I use it as a nighttime moisturizer.




Sometimes there is nothing worse than getting dressed and ready for your day and finding out that you somehow got deodorant on your top. Have no fear. Instead of trying to wash out the stain and be left with wet clothes, grab a nylon sock or pantyhose and rub it on the stain. This should remove the mark easily, and you should be ready to go in no time.




Traveling gets expensive quickly, and you want to use your extra cash on fun stuff so don’t waste it on check luggage fees. Become a smarter packer and try to fit everything into a carry on bag, especially if it is a shorter trip. Not only will you be saving the $25-$50 to check your bag, but you will also save time not standing in the ridiculously long airport lines at check-in and baggage claim. Time is money.



Have a fantastic weekend savvy savers!
