I'm hoping everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! As kids
make their way back into the classrooms, you can hear that
collective sigh from parents around the world. That sigh of
"after 3 months I have time to myself!"
If you're a teacher you're just getting back to work, how would you
like a free planner and folder samples? It's
one less thing you have to buy for the classroom. Just fill
in the form and pick the products you need (a school name is
required). Teachers can also get a free 24x36 "Huddle up with
a good book" poster. School name and address are required
on the form.
Now is a great time to get a free family portrait from Walmart.
Some people unwind in the weirdest ways. I recently came across an article about a woman's experience with a milkweed facial.

Apparently, it smells awful, however it's not uncommon for someone to endure such things for beauty.
There are lots of bizarre beauty treatments out there that people pay big bucks for. Read on about some of the other unusual ways people pamper themselves:
Last week, the FDA approved of a new type of cell therapy called laViv for fighting wrinkles by using a person's own skin cells to create an injectable cosmetic skin plumper. That's right, our very own cloned skin cells are injected back to us to stimulate the production of collagen. Fibrocell Science, the makers of LaViv, say it's the "the first and only personalized cell-based aesthetic treatment."
Whenever possible, I always try to avoid checking my luggage when I'm traveling. However, it can be tough with my intensive beauty regimen and having to follow TSA 3-1-1 guidelines. With airlines increasing fees for checked luggage, my Memorial Day weekend getaway cost me $25 ($50 round trip!) for one suitcase. If you're a frequent traveler and can get away with not having to check your bags, packing light and efficiently is essential.
Make the most out of your carry on and avoid paying those fees. Here are some tips to help you save money and maximize space for your beauty products:
