Did you ever look at a jar and think, "That's worn out"? Glass objects, like many other things, simply don't "wear out." And even if they show a little wear, it's perfectly acceptable to use them anyway. This means that you can buy them already used. Why spend two dollars on the same jar that you can get for fifty cents or less, used?
There are other things you should never buy new:

Money Saving Tips
Spring Break week is upon us. If you have school aged children, you are either starting it this week or next or have already had it. Either way, there is something you probably don't think about over this fun break in the school year and that is head lice.
They say that spring break is the prime time for lice outbreaks due to an increase in sports that require helmets, extra sleepovers and an increase in head-to-head contact.
So how do you prevent it or get rid of it naturally and inexpensively if you happen to get it?

Stuff We Like
Now that school has started, school pictures will be taken soon at every school
across the county. Plus, the holidays are going to be here soon. What grandparent wouldn't love
a picture of the grandkids? Maybe you like having a family picture taken every year for yourself.
New families love having pictures taken of their new baby. But babies grow so fast in the
first two years, you need a picture every couple of months to keep up with the changes.
The only problem is school pictures or professional pictures taken in a studio can be very
expensive. So why not get a free picture. A few places offer pictures for free--no session or
sitting fees either! Others offer free photos in addition to a package bought.
Make your appointments today and stop handing over tons of cash!
forget to print your coupons and bring them with you when you get your pictures taken!

Kung Fu Panda 2 has become the first movie to advertise on packages of tofu. House Foods, a major tofu manufacturer, is running ads with images of Po, the film's main character, on eight million of their packages. The company stated in the press release that "the film...is a great way to introduce families and kids to tofu and its myriad health benefits."
Botox injections for an 8 year-old? Shocking, but yes.
I'm sure you've heard over the week, mostly outrage, involving an 8 year-old who receives frequent Botox injections from her own mother.
In an article posted on KTLA website, the mother said, "In the past 12 months she has had different parts of her face and lips injected four times. I make her frown before injecting, which helps identify a potential wrinkle. This means we can get it before it even develops."
Who doesn't like crayons? I remember collecting crayons when I was younger and making sure that every tip was just so. Like myself, most people identify crayons with their childhood.
The word crayon dates back to 1644, however the history remains unclear where they originated from. While Crayola was not the first company to produce crayons, they are the most recognizable brand with their trademark yellow box (I grew up using them and so are my kids).
For parents, crayons are mess-free and non-toxic, which makes everything easier and safer--plus it keeps the kids occupied for hours (in a good way).
Since kids are very familiar with crayons whether it's using them at school, scribbling at home, or coloring at a restaurant (most chains offer crayons with a coloring menu), centering an activity around crayons is a great way to keep your kids engaged.
