Spend less, look better in 2011

Every January, each of us has a chance to start anew. In 2011, 7 of the top 10 most popular resolutions involved saving money. The other three were about looking and feeling better. There is a way you can do both; spend less and look better.

Most have heard the expression, “You get what you pay for”. To many, that means if something is cheap then it must be cheaply made. That may be true of some things like clothing, appliances and food but it is not true of everything.  Some products cost more because the packaging and the advertising are expensive. Skin care and cosmetics are known for using both. Who pays for the packaging and advertising?  You do. Unless you are a smart and savvy shopper.  Alpha Hydrox has always been a value brand but that does not make it cheap.  Three great skin care products only cost about $30.  The ingredients, however, are equal to and often better than department store brands. The packaging is simple yet suitable for each product and advertising is based on word-of-mouth.  No wasted expense there.

Keep your New Year’s resolutions in 2011. Spend less, look better. It starts with Alpha Hydrox.

  1. Nice post. I learn something totally new and
    challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day.
    It will always be helpful to read articles from other writers and use something from their
    websites.

    • Hi! Yes, we are using WordPress. It is fairly easy to use and has a lot of helpful features. You do not need to know html coding to get a blog set up. Blogging is a great way to share your knowledge and experiences. Good luck and have fun!

    topic. You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually would want
