Women pay a lot of money for hair removal. Electrolysis, wax, tweezers are some of the tools used in removing unsightly hair from all areas of the body. There are infomercials that discuss pricey procedures available for anyone who can afford it. Growing up Italian, I saw many women who struggled with keeping up with their facial hair. In my family "the evil dark mustache" was never a popular topic. It was really the only time I saw my Grandmother get frustrated, well that, and the time the butcher did not give her enough chicken neck bones for her famous gravy. Yes, we call it gravy in my house.
It was finally my Aunt Lucy who came to everyones rescue. This particular Aunt was a pip: metal detecting was her hobby of choice, as was frequent trips to Atlantic City where shed happily spend the day with a bucket of quarters and an arm bandit. My Aunt turned everyone on to the wonders of a little can of wax and a popsicle stick and how melting, applying and ripping off correctly could effectively and frugally take care of everyones dark upper lip.
Funding a reasonable answer to a regular issue can be lifesaving to someone who is busy working and raising a family. My latest and greatest find is that you can make microwave popcorn without paying for the trans fat ladened stuff they sell in stores. Sorry Orville Redenbacker, I love your products, but this recipe is better. In a brown paper lunch bag place 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels and a few swirls of olive oil. Fold over the top and secure with a thick piece of packing tape. Microwave standing straight up for 3 minutes, listening for the kernels stop popping, and presto you've got fresh tasting corn for pennies. www.brownpaperbagcorn.com

Women tend to spend a good portion of their day driving around in a car. My car happens to be dirtier than most. Winter weather has built up dirt, grime, and some leftover salt which can be found all over the interior of the car. You'll find
everything and anything; a holiday gift I've been meaning to return, empty water bottles, library books that were due last week, hardened French fries scattering the floor (God knows how old!), along with the kids' sports equipment jamming up
the trunk. So what is the solution to this mess? A car wash: it's a quick fix but is short lived.
Computer technologies can be addictive because they are psychoactive.
They alter moods and trigger enjoyable feelings. It was found that 37% of
Americans check email on their phones while driving!
The average American woman consumes approximately 4,600 milligrams of sodium a day, twice the recommended amount.
Here are some hidden sodium traps:
• 1 cup of cottage cheese has 819 milligrams of sodium.
• 1 12 oz can of soda has 50 milligrams of sodium.
• 1 cup of vegetable juice has 653 milligrams of sodium.
• 1 croissant has 424 milligrams of sodium.
• 1 cup of seasoned bread crumbs has 2,111 milligrams of sodium
