She also said that the products have "harsh fragrance" that can cause allergic reactions for some users.

    WHEN it comes to the weekly shop we all love to bag a bargain or two, but most of us will buy everything from one store.

You see everyone having a certain type of pan and therefore you feel like you should, too," Nahabedian explained. But, you shouldn't buy huge pot sets just because they seem to be all the rage. Instead, you should buy solid individual pots and pans that will serve the purposes you need them to. Read more on chefsSAGE ADVICE I'm a chef and these herbs are easy to grow for...
    ProPublica is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative newsroom. Sign up for The Big Story newsletter to receive stories like this one in your inbox. For more than five years, the mayor of Reno, Nevada, has supported the demolition of dozens of dilapidated motels that provided shelter for thousands of residents squeezed by the city’s housing crisis, rather than rehabilitate the buildings to provide affordable housing. Now she’s changing course. Mayor Hillary Schieve is proposing to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to acquire and rehabilitate motels in downtown through the Reno Housing Authority. In fact, the agency has already moved quietly to buy two shuttered buildings. Last week, the agency submitted an offer to buy the Bonanza Inn, a closed 58-unit motel with a history of code violations that is now part of an estate sale. It also submitted a letter of intent to make an offer on a much larger property — the 19-story former Sundowner casino-hotel. Details of the offers — the prices, contingencies and financing — are not public. The RHA’s board of...
    A FASHION fan has revealed how she saves thousands on clothes every year by raiding dead people’s wardrobes. Self-confessed cheapskate Lydia Abate lives at home for free, eats for free and finds her fashion for free thanks to something called funeral tracking. 3Lydia Abate saves thousands on her wardrobe by funeral trackingCredit: Youtube / TLC 3She simply checks her local obituaries and offers to clear out the deceased's wardrobe in exchange for their clothesCredit: Youtube / TLC Speaking on TLC’s Extreme Cheapskates, Lydia explains: “As I’ve got more savvy I’ve realised I don’t just need to be frugal, I can get things for completely free. “I’ve been funeral tracking for almost six years. “Funeral tracking is a way of procuring vintage clothes for free by searching the obituaries in the paper then finding the right moment to approach the family and ask if they would be willing to donate their clothes to me in exchange for clearing them out of their house.” While approaching grieving families is a sensitive issue, Lydia is often successful as professional services can charge up...
    Gettysburg, South Dakota — So it is true. Money really can’t buy you love. Just ask Joe Biden. Two weeks ago, as voters trudged to cast ballots in off-year elections, shock polls revealed record dissatisfaction for President Biden and his insane agenda of open borders, high gas prices, wild inflation, and American humiliation around the globe. Only the political experts in Washington were surprised by these polls. After all, they are the same geniuses who never saw President Trump coming six years ago. The elections that followed put an exclamation point on those grim polls. The experts were somehow shocked again and insisted it was all some kind of racist, white conspiracy. Republicans swept all three statewide offices in the deep Democrat state of Virginia and nearly toppled a sitting governor in the even bluer state of New Jersey. Down-ballot races across the country proved only more devastating. Republicans seized control of the statehouse in Virginia. A truck driver in New Jersey spent just $153 in his primary to oust New Jersey’s Senate President, the state’s top Democrat party boss. Watching the floundering disbelief and stammering excuses from the...
    A WOMAN shocked thousands when she revealed she paid £36,000 to rent a house in Cheshire for six months - people can’t believe she didn’t just buy a property. The 20-year-old made a video expressing regret that she’d spent such a huge amount of money on renting a property and received criticism for her decision. 2Brit's viewers were horrified by her expensive renting decisionCredit: @2.britt/Tiktok 2The Tiktok user said people told her not to waste the money but she was 'stubborn'Credit: @2.britt/Tiktok Tiktok user Brit uploaded the video, in which she said: “Thinking about when I dropped £36,000 up front on a house to rent for 12 months.” In a follow-up clip, she explained that she was renting in Alderley Edge at the time, but that she decided to move because the area was “too Tory” for her. Because she moved, the landlord refunded her for the months she didn’t spend at the property. She said: “I was renting in Alderley Edge in Cheshire and I moved like, somewhere else, because it was too Tory for me, but we got...
    Adobe I’ve been known to give the worst Christmas gifts ever. I once gave my brother and his then-pregnant wife what I thought was a baby hat, which later turned out to be an oven mitt. (In my defense, no one in that town spoke English, and that quilted triangle could be worn on an infant’s head.) It’s even worse when your gift hurts someone’s feelings. As a kid, I gave my dad plus-sized pajama pants, because I thought they looked comfy. (They were a few sizes too large.) The incident has gone down in family lore. To help you avoid similar pitfalls, I’ve compiled what I’ve learned about the worst Christmas gifts. They usually fall into a few major categories: gifts that highlight someone’s perceived flaws (like acne products and weight-loss supplements); gifts that reveal how little you know about the recipient (like getting a dog leash for someone who doesn’t have a dog); and — my personal favorite — misguided self-help books. (There is no category for accidentally giving someone an oven mitt for their baby....
    Starting down the path to a zero-waste lifestyle is something that we can all do now to make a personal impact in thwarting climate change. Sure, there are governmental policies to worry about. There are conservation efforts to support. There is renewable energy, food miles, and public transport. But, right now, we can all adjust the way we live, and we can all reduce the amount of waste we produce. Truthfully, the route to zero waste is wrought with obstacles. Our economy and culture are built around convenience and over-consumption, neither of which is conducive to reducing waste. So, it will take thoughtfulness and restraint on our parts to make it happen. There is no product we can buy to fix this, no short-cut. But, there are important first steps we can take to begin making a difference. Eliminate the easy stuff. There are some forms of waste we produce every day that we can easily eliminate. We can avoid take-out food and to-go containers. We can buy loose, fresh produce instead of packaged stuff. We can opt for...

Putting your COVID-19 vaccine card into a vinyl sleeve helps protect it in case you need to reference it later. You can also laminate it, though that may make it difficult to update the card with future booster shot information. At the very least, everyone should take a picture of their vaccine card in the event it gets lost or damaged. It's likely you've seen scores of vaccinated people happily posting their COVID-19 vaccine cards all over social media (though, you shouldn't really do that). But they're more than just a symbol of the peace of mind that comes with being fully vaccinated; these 4x3 cards are now required under some authorities...
    A SAVVY couple who were forced to miss out on a big wedding day revealed how they put the cash they saved towards buying their first home – and celebrated with a ‘first home cake’, designed to look like their block of flats. Timi Merriman-Johnson, 31, and Jenni Hagan, 30, who first met at a wedding in 2015, originally planned to spend around £20,000 on a grand celebration with two ceremonies, two parties and more than 200 guests. 9The couple have saved around £16kCredit: PA Real Life But instead, will have a small affair at a Chelsea registry office, with just 12 of their nearest and dearest this August, costing around £4,000. The cash they saved was put towards helping them buy the flat they already shared in Southwark, south London for £465,000. Timi, a financial content creator who goes by the name Mr Money Jar, and technology consultant Jenni celebrated their completion date with the enormous chocolate and vanilla cake. Timi, from Croydon, said: “We were already living in the property, so we didn’t have a moving in day....
    A PARAMEDIC has issued an urgent warning to parents about the dangers of mini chocolate eggs for kids, and urged mums and dads not to buy them for Easter. Nikki Jurcutz, who works as the CEO of the parenting organisation Tiny Hearts Education, has warned against the small eggs saying they're a choking hazard for little ones. 3A paramedic has warned against giving kids mini easter eggs and said to choose large, hollow eggs insteadCredit: tinyheartseducation/Instagram The small size and shape of the chocolates, which are similar to grapes, can cause them to get stuck in toddlers' airways. The seal created by the smooth surface also makes them tricky to move - even with first aid. Instead, Nikki, a retired mother-of-two from Queensland, Australia, suggests buying larger eggs which are hollow inside as these can easily break into small, flat pieces. This means they are far less dangerous for kids, making them a better option at Easter. 3Nikki is a retired mother-of-two from Queensland, Australia and shares information on the tiny Hearts Education Instagram pageCredit: tinyheartseducation/Instagram "Up...

    Capitalizing on the novel COVID-19 virus and the need for face coverings, several companies are now selling masks embedded with nano-silver. They claim these products are “especially” antimicrobial due to the addition of nano-silver and therefore ensure enhanced protection from the virus. Nano-silver’s antimicrobial properties come from silver ions interacting with the DNA of pathogens to prevent reproduction and limiting key enzymes. Nano-silver has been found to kill a broad range of microbes that affect food. Its efficacy with regard to protecting against COVID-19, however, is less clear. Unfortunately, while nano-silver does have antimicrobial properties, its ingestion or inhalation by humans can cause significant harm and it is not approved for use in face masks by federal government agencies. The Basics Nano-silver is one of the most common and widely used antimicrobial nanomaterials on the global market. Nanomaterials are so small that a nanometer cannot be seen by an ordinary microscope. Due to their small size, they have different chemical, physical, and even biological properties than conventionally-sized materials. As such, the size and novel properties of nanomaterials are not properly...
    123RF (olegdudko) Deciding to get one of the best bidets on Amazon isn’t only a smart idea in the threat of looming toilet paper shortages, it’s also a greener way to lower your impact on the environment and a small investment to save you money in the long run. Honestly, once you use a bidet for a week (to get the hang of it), you’ll have no idea how you felt clean without one. While you’re at it, pamper the rest of your body with linen sheets.
    San Antonio – At this point, many of us know that getting a drink without a straw and bringing reusable grocery bags to the store prevent plastic use. But, many experts agree that more will need to be done to curb the amount of plastic use. The Green Education Foundation offers simple ways we can use less plastic in our daily lives -- beyond straws and bags. One way is to buy matches instead of plastic lighters. The hard plastic makes it difficult to recycle and it takes a long time to break down. If you don’t want to use matches, invest in a reusable lighter instead. The foundations says you should buy a razor with a reusable blade as well. Billions of razor heads are sent to the landfill each year, creating unnecessary waste. Also, many barbers agree that a reusable razor gives you a cleaner, closer shave. If you like juice in the morning, Try making your own. Not only will it cut down on plastic jugs you buy -- but it will also have a lot less...

    You see, the problem here is all this focus on the 200,000 dead Americans. What if instead of thinking about that we all just decided to Be Best, or something? The Trump administration has given up on any serious attempts to curb the nation's ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As U.S. deaths inch towards the 200,000 mark, outside experts are now warning Americans to ignore the "dysfunctional" Centers of Disease Control and Prevention after the agency issued new, Trump-favored guidelines to reduce testing, rather than expand it. There is no federal contract tracing effort. There is no standard, expert-based pandemic policy—each state has been left to its own devices, with federal officials ignoring even the most serious state outbreaks. Don't worry, though. It's not like the Trump-led federal government is entirely asleep at the wheel. The Department of Health and Human Services is seeking bids for a new quarter-billion dollar communications contract, reports Politico. No, not to encourage Americans to social distance, wear masks, or get tested—don't be stupid. The new publicity campaign will instead "defeat despair and inspire hope," advising businesses how...
    By RONALD MONTOYA of Edmunds A rule of thumb for car buying is that a used vehicle will provide greater savings and better value than a new vehicle. But “better value” isn’t applicable to every car, especially right now. COVID-19′s effect on the auto industry has been twofold. For one, shoppers are aiming to spend less on a vehicle, often by buying used. Additionally, there’s less new car inventory because of factory slowdowns, furthering used car demand. Used vehicle prices have increased as a result. The average list price for all used vehicles climbed to $21,558 in July, marking a $708 increase compared to June, according to Edmunds data. These trends are creating situations where buying a new vehicle could be a better deal than buying a 1- or 2-year-old used version of the same vehicle. WHY PAY THE EXTRA FOR NEW? There are a number of reasons to pay that small difference and opt for the new model: — Interest rates will always be less expensive for a new car by a few percentage points. — Incentives, such as...

    Almost every model in Amazon’s Fire lineup of budget-friendly tablets is discounted. The Fire HD 8 is a good value at $60 (usually $90), and even the Fire HD 8 Plus with slightly more RAM and wireless charging support is $30 off; instead of costing $110, it’s down to $80. If you want to step up to a bigger 10-inch screen with 1080p resolution instead of sub-FHD screen, the Fire HD 10 is a better bet. It’s $50 off its usual price, down to $100. Different as these prices might be, all of them have a few things in common that might make shopping easier. They each charge via USB-C and include a charger in the box (though the Fire HD 10 includes a faster 9W charger instead of a 5W charger that’s tossed in with the Fire HD 8).
