food tips

Try light chocolate milk or chocolate soy milk in place of cream for coffee and it is delish! Sort of mocha-ish. Also for sushi, did not miss the soy sauce, try eating the pieces by itself - works for california roll pieces.

save those free makeup bags

Watch for promos offering free makeup bags and samples, when purchasing the more expensive brands for things like foundation. Keep the makeup kit bag for the work drawer or car for touchups and travel.

keep hands clean

When buying raw meat at the grocery store, get a clear little bag from the veggie department first and invert it over the meat as you grab it with your hand inside the baggy. Works with any small pack of ground beef, sausage, and other raw meats that might leak.
