I put my facial cleanser in the palm of my hand and add about a teaspoon of baking soda, and scrub away! It makes my skin so soft and glowing--and it costs so much less than the department store microdermabrasion products!
Just be careful not to scrub too hard. also--don't use this every day--more like 2 or 3 times a week!

Feel, experience how nice it is to spend time on you. Let others pamper you or do it yourself with a long hot shower, a body scrub, facial scrub, facial mask, lots of bodylotion. You feel so renewed afterword that it gives you tons of energy and willpower to get back on track!
If you have a wegmans nearby, you need to pick up their "thai" veggie broth. It's vegetarian, and can be used in place of any vegetable/chicken/beef broth, but it has an explosive flavor - lemongrass, spice, etc. I use it to make simple dishes like lentils or rice taste out of this world!
(and when they are so tasy, it becomes easy to turn a side dish into a cheap, easy meal)
Tubes! They drive me crazy!! Trying to get everything out of them! You can't! When you have done as much squeezing as you can, cut the tube in half!! You will find a lot of your lotion, toothpaste, etc. in the bottom and sides! Put saran wrap on the ends to keep it from drying out!!
When Mom was about to throw out her expensive facial scrub cream in a tube out, I stopped her and told her to cut it open first! She was astonished how much was in the bottom and the sides and got about seven more scrubs out of it! We waste far too much! Same goes for pump bottles!
