For those who are on a tight budget, scrimping on personal care may seem a better option that ponying up the cash for things such as facials and the salon. However, skipping personal care rituals in an effort to save could result in lack luster complexion and split ends. Here are a couple of tips to help boost your beauty budget.
Shop for deals There are sales on personal care items every week at grocery stores, pharmacies and big box stores. Using coupons will help drop the sale price even further; chances are you are going to be able to find some good deals. Use the sales flyers that come through the mail, and are available in the Sunday newspaper and online.
Coupon it up There are coupons for haircuts, facials, waxing… In addition, there are coupons on sites such as LivingSocial.com and Groupon.com, as well as at the business location. Find coupons in magazines, in newspapers and on community bulletin boards. Keep your eyes open and you will be amazed at what you will find.
Just ask Consider asking the business for a discount. The worst thing you will hear is no.
