Credit Card Interest

Check with your credit card company to find out when interest begins accruing. Most start charging interest the day after payment is due.

You can calculate interest here. It may shock you to find out how much you pay annually.

If you haven't already done so, begin a plan to pay off credit card balances.

Getting the Most from Lotion Bottles

Whether it's shampoo, conditioner, moisturizing cream, foundation or other types of lotion, there is always a large amount in the bottom of the bottle that's difficult to get out. I find this especially true of ones that have a pump on them. Instead of discarding the container, cut the top off and scrape the remainder out. The small ice cream/gelato spoons work great for this or a plastic knife. After cutting the top off the foundation bottle I was able to use the contents for three weeks before discarding it (cover with plastic wrap to prevent the cream from drying out).
