Retail’s Winter Slump Could Help Your Financial Health.

By Tia Cristy

Happy Presidents Day

Since this is a holiday for some, here’s a different kind of quick tip that can help your financial health on 2 major purchases.

Presidents Day closes a lot of offices, but not everyone is off today. As usual, the retailers hard at work, boom on this holiday.

Throughout the seasons there are some pretty great sales. But, you need to do your research on when you can get the best price, on a specific something.

Not suggesting you to spend money today, but if you are in need for a bed or a car, go do some research, because Presidents Day sales are usually the best sales on those 2 items.

Why? Because the winter slump happens to retail too. If it’s cold and you don’t want to go out you probably aren’t shopping for anything other than necessities, either. It’s too cold to think of summer stuff and too over winter, to have excitement of getting more winter stuff. So, the best way to get out of the slump, is to offer a great deal on a big tag necessity.

It may not always be this way, but it’s just a quick tip you may want to remember, that’s held for quite some time.

Removing Stubborn Pet Hair from Clothes. Tips in Action:

Removing Stubborn Pet Hair from Clothes. Tips in Action:

It can be a hassle to have a wardrobe of light clothes with a dark colored pet, and vice versa with dark clothes. Some materials are not pet friendly at all, …for example wool. Everything sticks to it. But truthfully, why go without a jacket you love? There’s an easy trick to actually remove the pesky pet hair.

If you’ve tried the lint roller and it just won’t cut it.

Sticky lint rollers are amazing, but sometimes they just can get those hairs in some fibers. Remember, duct tape fixes everything. Take a strip of tape and apply it to the garment, applying a smoothing pressure and peel off quickly. Just imagine, it’s as if you’re waxing your garment. It should pull up that stubborn hair. Repeat process if necessary.

Everybody loves to snuggle up with their pets. But, you also love your clothes, so use this tip to leave the fear of everyone else noticing how much you love your pet.

Getting Melted Candle Wax Out of Glass.

Getting Melted Candle Wax Out of Glass.

 

Lighting votive candles can bring a beautiful ambiance to a room, but once they burn down it’s hard to get the left over wax out of the glass holder.

A quick tip to get that wax to pop out effortlessly is, once the candle and glass cool completely, place in the freezer overnight.

The next day, remove from the freezer. Use a spoon handle and push wax from one side and the remaining wax should come out in a complete mass. If it still gives some trouble break the seal of the wax to candle and try again.

Last Day of the Mayan Calendar and you need a Quickie.

Last Day of the Mayan Calendar and you need a Quickie.

So who knows what today really brings as the Mayans hard work comes to an end. But I imagine somewhere and some how, life will go on procreating. But, lets just say you need some help in the lubrication department and your partner is allergic or sensitive to consumer products.

I recommend this anyway; it’s a natural, olive oil. Olive oil can be used safely for him and her a like. It’s got anti-fungal and anti-bacteria properties, it’s all natural with no synthetic chemicals and most important it’s slippery.

So put olive oil to use in places other than the kitchen. If you have an allergy to olives, almond, sesame, or coconut could work too, but most of those have a higher percentage of allergy sufferers than olive oil, so know yours and your partners allergies before you practice procreation.

Hurricanes, Extra Tips the News Doesn’t Tell You

Hurricanes, Extra Tips the News Doesn’t Tell You

Let’s say, major weather is hitting your coast. Hurricanes are making their presence known in all states east of the Mississippi, Typhoons are washing out beaches or perhaps, Cyclones are soaking the land down under. You’re getting flooded (literately) from the news stations, with tips to stay safe, but here are a few safety tips you should use when facing a major weather crisis, no matter where you are in the world.

Weather Alert

If it’s a mandatory evacuation, do it. You can only protect your stuff to a certain point. Make sure in the car you have packed all your necessities that you will need for at least a week. You never know if you’ll need them or not, but it’s best to have more than less.

Weather Advisory Necessities

1. Paper

Take a roll of toilet paper and paper towels to keep in the car, you never know when you’ll need them.

2. Nonperishable Food

Bring food. It may take hours to get where you are going and stopping for a bite to eat may not be an option.

3. Something to Keep You Busy

Bring games, easy ones of course. If you have kids, make sure you have games for them and for you as well.

Remember, frustrations can get high in evacuation settings, so be sure to instruct the kids on keeping noise levels down and refrain from arguing, as well as assuring them that there is presently no danger. You don’t want them to panic silently if they see you’re chafed.

What if you don’t have to evacuate

I’m sure you’ve heard all the important things needed to keep close by and dry. Flashlights, batteries, radio, insurance papers (keep in a large freezer bag), food and bottled water are all things you want to have in the house.

Light a Fire

Here are a few more tips the news hasn’t mentioned, and you may not have thought of; keep lighters in a location where they will stay dry and are easy to find, but also get books of matches. This is good to have in case the lighters get wet or lose fluid. Dip the match head and strike strip in hot wax. (Blow out the candle before dipping the book of matches, you don’t want it to ignite the matches by accident.) This will waterproof the matches.

Why Do People Fill the Bathtub During a Storm

Next tip, fill the bathtub with water. This is good if for any reason the water in source becomes contaminated or you need power for your water supply. This water can be used to flush toilets, clean clothes, wash dishes etc. Keep a small bucket next to the tub to transport water to another area to do such things, keep the tub water clean for as long as you can.

One More Thing

And last but probably most important, while still with power, keep your cell phone on the charge. You don’t want to lose power and have less than half battery life in the middle of the storm.
