ClickSmart is a Great Directory

I hate moving. It can be so overwhelming with packing all your belongings, finding a new place to live, finding a new school for the kids, and maybe even a new job. I haven’t moved in over 12 years, but I do remember the hassle. ClickSmart.com is a great online business directory. If you need to find a Chicago moving company, then no problem. All these companies are ClickSmart Certified experts. This means they have to meet all local and state requirements which will give you peace of mind.

The directory can be used anywhere in the country. If I were moving to Chicago, then I would definitely use this directory to find all sorts of businesses. Don’t hesitate to use them to find a great local company.

TMR Frugal Living Tip #21: Use Sugar to Exfoliate Hands!

 

Today’s thrifty tip is to use sugar to exfoliate hands! Yep plain white sugar works great and is very inexpensive.

You will be amazed at how soft your hands will feel afterwards. I use this hand treatment once a week.

First I squeeze out a small amount of hand lotion (Vaseline Intensive Care works great) into one hand. Then I add a small amount of white sugar.

Next rub your hands together as if you are washing your hands. Do not get them wet at this point! The sugar has to really work into your skin first. I rub my hands for about 2-3 minutes.

Finally rinse your hands under warm water and pat dry with a soft towel.

Many companies are now making similar products at a not so affordable price. I will stick to using plain white sugar to exfoliate hands.

I get lots of compliments on how nice and soft my hands look and feel. My husband also uses this treatment as his hands get rough from his job. He has a very physically demanding job.

NOTE: Please do not use this method on your face. Your body and even feet would be fine. Your face is too sensitive.

TMR Frugal Living Tip #20

Today’s thrifty tip is turn your bottles upside down to squeeze out the last remains. I do this with all my bottles of shampoo, conditioner, dish liquid, and such. I also will add a little water and shake well to use it all. You would be surprised at how much more you can get from a bottle. I usually get at least 2-3 more uses this way.

TMR Frugal Living Tip #19

Today’s thrifty tip is to use hair conditioner instead of shaving cream. Personally I don’t like doing this, but I will if I’m in a pinch. I really prefer to use shaving cream. I never pay more than $1 a can. I usually get them free or for 50 cents after sale and coupon. I also don’t use hair conditioner. I mainly buy the shampoo that already has it or is a very thick one like the L’Oreal Vive.
