Putting the Lids on This Week's Tip Jars: May 30, 2014

Happy Friday Everyone! We hope that you all had a short week and were able to enjoy it! With the Memorial Day behind us now, we can almost taste summer it is so close. That can only mean more beach trips, barbecues, and outdoor activities! It is a good thing here in the office we are just as excited to do all of these things as you are because we are making sure to find the best deals on everything, all season long. From outdoor furniture to entertaining needs to summer clothing, we want to make sure that you are getting the most for your money! In addition, we are currently running an amazing giveaway right now for 2 Pizza Hut $50 Gift Cards. Can anyone say free pizza party?!  




Wearing bracelets completes your outfit, but there is nothing worse then not being able to clasp it yourself. Instead of either throwing out your jewelry or going to the jeweler for more links on your bracelet, use this trick. All you have to do is use a larger paper clip and unfold it into an S. Then just hook it through the ring and hold the paper clip in place. This will make it easier to keep your bracelet in place and latch your bracelet closed.




With the sun shining extra bright the next couple months, you definitely don’t want your hair to look dull and boring. Instead brighten your locks with tea! For blondes, use chamomile tea, redheads use rooibos, and dark/brunettes use black tea. Just boil water and let your teabags soak for the allotted time. Then let the tea cool before rinsing your hair with it. Once you have done that, wash and condition as normal. Hopefully this will bring out the natural color and shine in your hair without having to spend a lot of money on expensive hair product.




Cleaning is a great way to clear the mind and get in a little light exercise, but even the most enthusiastic cleaner probably doesn’t want to scrub a toilet until the rings and other marks are gone. This is where out favorite Mr. Clean comes in handy.  Don’t spend hours working on your toilet; instead, cut a piece off of a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and throw that in your toilet overnight. This should work to remove the rings and leave your toilet sparkling and clean. If anything, it will loosen up any grim and then you will spend far less time cleaning than you would have initially.




Lipstick can transform a normal outfit into the perfect going out look instantly, but having cracked or flakey lips will instantly ruin the look. Instead steering clear of lipstick, just prep your lips for the night! They sell scrubs in store that you can purchase, but this at home technique will save you the extra cash. All you need to buy is a baby tooth brush, sugar, and coconut oil. Then you can make your scrub with the sugar and coconut oil and use the little toothbrush as your exfoliator. Rinse your lips off, dry, and you are ready to go!




Gardening season is officially upon us and if you aren’t looking to purchase a brand new watering can, just make your own. I actually prefer this method because I never have to worry about spilling. Just use an old milk jug that has been cleaned out and poke holes in the lid to act as your watering can. It is easy to fill the jug and carry around for either small plants outside or the ones around the house.


Have a fantastic weekend savvy savers!
