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."

Thanks to WalletPop, for the great tip!

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!"

Maybelline Lash Expansion Mascara, Very Black - .22 fl oz
