We all know that time (and money) is of the essence. Nowadays, people do not have much time to get all that needs to be done in a day. Many wish that they could have an extra hour or two in the day to get things done. People (myself included) know that convenience is an important factor in our everyday lives; many don’t even have time to read the newspaper in the morning for gosh sakes!
Because of the economic downfall that has happened in the past few years, people also do not have the financial resources for luxury products and services. Everyone is struggling. This post focuses on how you can cut your time and money in half.
How to cut costs
* Before testing out a beauty product, the golden rule is to always try a sampler. You might think that this is obvious; but because labels and ‘guarantees’ on packages, people will automatically think that the product is worth buying. This usually sets people up for disappointment. Companies would be happy to give consumers free stuff to try out. If you want to try the expensive brand names, go to your department store and ask for some samples to take home. Go to company websites like Loreal and Cover Girl and click on their ‘specials’ section for samples as well. Speaking of coupons, check out save.ca – you can pick and choose specific coupons to your liking and have them mailed to you each month.
*If you are happy with a certain brand or product, buy 2 or 3 at a time (especially if it is on sale).
How to cut time
* I know many people have a hard time waking up in the morning, but if you can, try getting up at least 20 minutes to half an hour before you usually do in the morning. This will allow you time for your beauty routine, as well as to eat breakfast.
