If you are like most of us, the state of the economy has us all tightening our purse strings and becoming more frugal shoppers. Below are a few things that I have done to save money: 1. Instead of getting my eyebrows waxed, I now pluck them on my own, which saves $20 every 2-3 weeks. 2. Giving myself a manicure, which saves $15 every 2 weeks 3. Using drugstore products, instead of paying premium prices for salon products. I use Eucerin Original Cream, which run about $12 from Target instead of paying twice a much for other salon and other specialty brand body creams.
4 Making my own body scrub. I use epsom salt and just a couple drops of baby oil. I also found a recipe for a sugar scrub on Recipezaar.com http://www.recipezaar.com/Simple-Sugar-Scrub-92027
5. Using reward systems and taking online surveys to get points that can be redeemed for gift certificates. I used the points that I earned from mypoints.com to redeem a BP Gift card and a Macy's Gift card. I am also enrolled with e-rewards (http://www.e-rewards.com/) and glamspotters (http://www.glamoursurveys.com/), these are great ways to earn free items.
