Cheap Tip of the Day: What I will not skimp on...

Wednesday, January 31, 2007


Or" What I won't skimp on" for the country folk...


Detergent- Most of my clothes are not designer pieces and most of them don't cost over $20 a piece of clothing. So you gots to take care of cheap clothes. I learned this from my Soror Kindra who was size -0 in college and had tons of clothes but most of them were from juniors department and what I called "hoochie mama" stores. But you would never know. She was meticulous in washing, hanging,and pressing her clothes. She said to me,"You can't wash cheap clothes in cheap detergent, you want to at least get the $10 out of it that you put in it!". That simple.


Eye Makeup Remover- I have literally tried all of the drugstore/mass market crap that burns my eyes. Lancome Deficils remover works like a dream.


Tweezers- Because I do my own brows, I rather have the good tools that cheap ones that don't grab the hair like you want it to. I probably got7 or 8 Tweezermans lying around


Pantyhose - I'm a big booty/big legs girl who needs big protection. And there are never any big sizes on sale.


Shavers- Cheap shaving cream but no cheap razors. I have no time for nicks and dry skin.
What won't you skimp on ??

Product Rave and Review: Skin MD Natural Sheilding Lotion


Skin MD Natural is a great lightweight moisturizer that I even use on my kids. At first I thought it was too light for since I love to be slathered in lotion. But over a couple of days, it started to work it magic, keep me ash free and itch free. I use it on the boys too, at night right after they get out of the tub. They seem to like it, even want to eat it!!( chil'ren...when you get some...you'll understand the "mikey complex"). Right now I keep in samples in my bag for touch ups. I suggest that they make a purse sized one. Love it!!
