With the right callus remover, you can remove calluses and soften and smooth your feet from home.</p> <p>Instead of feeling embarrassed by dry feet and dead skin, you can achieve professional results from home that you&rsquo;ll want to show off. Your feet will look and feel great, so you&rsquo;ll feel proud to show them off.</p> <h2>What Is a Callus Remover?</h2> <p>Calluses can be caused by excessive pressure and friction from daily activities, exercise, and wearing uncomfortable shoes. They can be unsightly, uncomfortable, and even painful.</p> <p>A callus remover is a pedicure tool that can quickly remove the dead, dry, rough skin so that you can reveal softer, smoother skin and remove the source of the pain right away. Callus removers come in various forms, such as electronic foot files, topical callus removers, or even cushioned medicated pads.</p> <p>The skin on your feet is about 20 times thicker than the skin on the rest of your body. That&rsquo;s why it&rsquo;s so important to take special care of your feet. Make sure to moisturize your feet after using a callus remover to ensure they remain soft and smooth for longer.</p> <h2>Top 5 Callus Removers</h2> <h3>Amopé Pedi Perfect Electronic Foot File</h3> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/2n6cBmA"><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/u5171/amope.jpg" width="181" height="245" align="right" alt="" /></a>The <a href="http://amzn.to/2n6cBmA" target="_blank">Amopé Pedi Perfect Electronic Foot File</a> with diamond crystals can leave your skin significantly softer and smoother after just one use.

It has rave reviews online, including more than 6,600 five-star reviews on Amazon. The company also boasts over three million fans in the U.S. Some reviewers even call this their miracle worker.

Limescale can accumulate in your machine&rsquo;s tubes, pumps, and inner workings over time. If you don&rsquo;t descale, your brewer won&rsquo;t work as well, so coffee takes longer to brew and it won&rsquo;t taste as good. Regularly descaling can help remove mineral buildup to return your machine to like-new conditions, thereby improving performance.</p> <p>A good descaler can make your machine work optimally again and can even extend the life of your machine, so you get a better value out of it. In most cases, you should use a descaler about once every three to six months to preserve your coffee maker.</p> <h2>What Are Descalers?</h2> <p>Descalers are chemical agents used to remove calcium deposits, limescale, and any other non-soluble sediments from any metal surfaces in contact with hot water. They release hydrogen ions when dissolved in water, which eat away at the scale and deposited minerals. They are commonly used to safely clean coffee and espresso machines, boilers, heat exchangers, water heaters, kettles, and septic tanks.</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re looking for a permanent solution, you won&rsquo;t find better than the <a href="http://amzn.to/2ntHGQI" target="_blank">Eddy Water Descaler Electronic Water Softener</a>.

Fortunately, you can rejuvenate your skin from home at an affordable price, in just a short period of time, with at-home peels.</p> <h2>What Are Face Peels?</h2> <p>Facial peels can exfoliate dead skin so that the outer layer of dead skin peels off. This can expedite cell turnover and improve the look and feel of the skin on the face, neck, or hands. After the treated skin peels off, fresh new skin replaces it. The new skin is left brighter, smoother, softer, and less wrinkled than the old skin.</p> <p>Modern living can take a toll on your skin. Fortunately, at-home facial peels can help reverse the damage. They can effectively treat, even skin tone, minimize pores, and eliminate or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and scars. Some peels can even boost collagen production for more youthful-looking skin.</p> <h2>Top 5 Face Peels</h2> <h3>Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads</h3> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/2nCVNCN"><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/u5171/81%2BTk7ZMCaL._SX522_.jpg" width="217" height="245" align="right" alt="" /></a>The <a href="http://amzn.to/2nCVNCN" target="_blank">Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads</a> are quick and easy to use.

After selling online for the better part of 20 years, I've learned a few lessons the hard way and dramatically refined my business approach. If you're considering flipping the switch on your own flipping business, here are eight common mistakes to avoid.</p> <h2>1. Buying the Big Stuff</h2> <p>Sometimes our eyes are bigger than our shipping capacity. Unless you're willing to sell locally through a site like Craigslist (an option many flippers are skittish about), stick to items that are relatively easy to pack and ship. And if you do end up buying a particularly large or unwieldy item, don't list it until you have all the necessary packing materials on hand. Delaying shipment while you scout around for the perfect box tends to annoy buyers.</p> <h2>2. Splurging on Expensive Technology</h2> <p>There are a few <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/what-you-need-to-start-flipping-items-for-cash-online" target="_blank">things you need to get started flipping</a>, but ridiculously expensive technology isn't one of them. Particularly in the beginning, keep things simple, test the market, and see how successful you are before making your enterprise too tech-heavy. Equipment-wise, all you really need to get started is a computer, a decent camera, and a smartphone (and if you know your stuff well enough, the smartphone is optional).</p> <h2>3. Buying What You Don't Know</h2> <p>Though I've been selling online for years, there are entire categories of items that I won't take a chance on. I don't know much about antique books, vintage records, or anything remotely automotive-related. Surely, there are fortunes to be made in each of these categories, but they're just not my thing. It's important to know your limits and not risk valuable capital on items you're unfamiliar with or can't research quickly and effectively online. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/10-easiest-items-to-flip-for-cash?ref=seealso" target="_blank">10 Easiest Items to Flip for Cash</a>)</p> <h2>4. Getting Lazy With Listings</h2> <p>How you list an item is as important as the item itself. Shoppers can't hold and touch your product before they buy it. Help them overcome that handicap by providing an obsessively detailed description and high-quality images. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/11-easy-ways-to-earn-more-on-ebay?ref=seeals" target="_blank">Ebay Tips That Will Help You Earn More</a>)</p> <h2>5. Paying Retail for Packing and Shipping Supplies</h2> <p>Keeping overhead low can often mean the difference between a good month and a bad one. As an online flipper, it helps to have a steady supply of free (or almost free) boxes, bubble-wrap, packing peanuts, and newspaper. Crowd-source supplies by putting the word out to friends and family, raiding the recycling room at work, and checking with local businesses. Buying your supplies may be faster and more convenient, but it can quickly eat into your profit margin.</p> <h2>6. Shipping Slowly</h2> <p>We live in a world of instant gratification. I call it the &quot;Amazon Effect.&quot; Online buyers have come to expect that most of what they order will arrive on their doorstep within 48 hours. While that turnaround time usually isn't feasible for home-based flippers, try to get your items out the door as fast as possible. If you're new to online flipping, establish a clear shipping policy and honor it no matter how small the sale.</p> <h2>7. Not Jumping on Trends</h2> <p>The resale market is as fickle as the retail market. If you're not plugged into trends, you'll miss out on amazing opportunities to make significant profit. Case in point: On the HBO series, <em>True Detective</em>, Matthew McConaughey's character drinks from a Big Hug Mug (a coffee mug from the 1980s that's littered the shelves of every thrift store for years). Once the series became popular, the value of these humble little mugs soared. At the height of the frenzy, quick-thinking flippers could buy these mugs for $0.99 and flip each one on eBay for nearly $100. Regrettably, I arrived at the Big Hug Mug party late and missed out on the most extreme profit margins. Lesson learned.</p> <h2>8. Keeping What You Buy</h2> <p>It's fun to find amazing deals on great stuff. In fact, it's so much fun that many flippers skip the flipping part. Fight the temptation to hoard what you buy. You're either a flipper or a collector, but the two seldom work together.</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/kentin-waits">Kentin Waits</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/selling-stuff-online-avoid-these-8-flipping-mistakes">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

I've never looked back.</p> <p>With two young children, going to the grocery store is a hassle and takes away from time that we could be on playdates or at the park. But aside from the convenience, I've found that grocery delivery has been helping me drastically cut down on my grocery bill. I've been able to trim a couple hundred dollars from my monthly budget simply by ordering groceries online.</p> <p>While Amazon Prime Now offers free same-day grocery delivery with a $99/year Prime subscription (fresh groceries may or may not be available in your area), there are many other affordable grocery services now available. AmazonFresh offers grocery delivery for an affordable monthly fee ($14.99 per month), and many grocers like Safeway and Whole Foods offer grocery delivery for a small fee per order, or a yearly membership. Safeway's delivery service costs are $9.95 on orders $150 or more, and $12.95 for orders under $150. Whole Foods' service is free for the first order, then $5.99 for one-hour delivery, $3.99 for two-hour delivery, or you can pay an annual membership fee of $99 and get any order over $35 for free.</p> <p>Often grocery delivery services have coupons offering free delivery for newcomers, which can make it easy to try them out and find which service is most convenient and economical for you. Here's how this modern convenience can improve your budget.</p> <h2>1. Eliminate Impulse Shopping</h2> <p>Cutting down on impulse shopping is hands down the number one reason I've been saving money on grocery shopping. When I'm shopping from the comfort of my own home, it's so much easier for me to avoid the impulse buys of snacks, chocolates, and other unnecessary treats that I frequently indulge in if I see them at the store. This benefit is multiplied even more when I can avoid stepping into Target or another one of my favorite stores (somehow I'll go there for milk and leave with a cart full of toys, shampoo, clothes, and cookies).</p> <p>I often shop for just a few staples &mdash; eggs, bananas, bread, milk, and lettuce &mdash; and avoid filling up my cart with impulse purchases. Amazon Fresh does require a minimum total of $40 on deliveries to avoid a $9.99 delivery fee &mdash; it's free over $40 &mdash; but they will sometimes offer free delivery credits on top of Prime orders if you choose free, no-rush shipping.

Reduce Waste</h2> <p>I like to order groceries on my phone while rummaging through and taking inventory of the contents of my fridge. That way, I only order items when I've run out and I cut down on duplicates of things I have. This reduces wasted food in the long run because I only buy what I need. It's much easier to do this when I'm able to look through my fridge instead of trying to remember what I need while at the store.</p> <p>Another strategy I have is to add things to my online cart as I run low on them, which makes it easy to check out when I need them. No more running to the store to buy one thing that you forgot on your last shopping trip!</p> <h2>3. Enjoy Comparable Prices</h2> <p>I've found that, most of the time, online grocery prices are comparable to what you would pay in a regular supermarket. Sure, you will occasionally get an oddly high price, but once you know what the prices should be, you might be pleasantly surprised at how similar the prices are for delivered groceries. And when there's an extra good deal (like jars of pasta sauce for $1) you can order <em>a lot</em> without having to lug all those heavy bags home yourself.</p> <h2>4. Waste Less Time</h2> <p>It takes me far longer to prowl through the aisles of a grocery store looking for a specific item than to simply type it into the search bar on my grocery delivery app. Adding things to my cart as I run low on them also saves time. Now I no longer have to block off an hour or two of time to go grocery shopping (including driving time), and I can take the kids to the park instead (where I don't get tempted to spend money!). Or I could write an article in that time, and get paid!</p> <p>Amazon Fresh's delivery service doesn't even require you to be home to accept the delivery. The items you order are packaged accordingly &mdash; frozen and perishable items together in coolers with ice packs &mdash; and arrive at your doorstep. You can choose to be home for the delivery or not, but if you know you won't be home, you can select that option while placing your order, and you can expect the delivery to be left on your doorstep during the scheduled delivery time of your choosing. You also don't have to tip the driver.</p> <h2>5. Meal-Plan More Efficiently</h2> <p>I often find that my best-laid meal plans get derailed when I arrive at the grocery store and see something else that tickles my fancy instead. If you're really into meal-planning, having your groceries delivered can help you meet those meal-planning goals. When you're setting up your menu for the week, add the groceries to your online shopping cart as you go. The bonus of shopping this way is that you can order everything you need for the week at once, making the most of the delivery fee.</p> <h2>6. Stay Under Budget</h2> <p>It's easy to check how much my total purchase is going to cost by glancing at my online cart. If I have a weekly grocery budget, this makes it far easier for me to tweak my purchases and stay under budget. If, for instance, I'm a bit over, I might buy apples instead of more expensive grapes, a head of lettuce instead of a bagged salad, or chicken thighs instead of steak. If you've ever gone to check out at the grocery store and realize that you've underestimated your purchase by $40, this is one way to avoid that.</p> <p>Grocery delivery is convenient, and it can definitely save you money, but it's not magic. You still have to be vigilant about checking prices just like you would at a physical supermarket. It might take a while to figure out which delivery service works best for you. And I still do have to run to the brick-and-mortar store once in awhile, just far less often than I did before.</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/camilla-cheung">Camilla Cheung</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/6-ways-having-your-groceries-delivered-can-save-you-money">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

If you're like most, it can drive you crazy and make you feel very unlucky. Here are some checkout line tricks, many of which are based on science, to help you pick the fastest line and get you out of the store as quickly as possible.</p> <h2>1. Get Behind a Full Cart</h2> <p>This one will surprise many of you. If you have the option of getting behind a shopping cart packed full of groceries, or a line with several smaller purchases in it, always opt for the full cart. This is due to the fact that it takes significant time to complete the purchase when you consider bagging, paying, and exiting of the checkout line.</p> <p>According to the New York Times, each shopper will take approximately 41 seconds to complete the purchase (including pleasantries) once the items are scanned and bagged. So if you opt for the one full cart, instead of several smaller ones, you'll quickly remove all of the fixed time it takes to complete those purchases.</p> <h2>2. Avoid Chatty Cashiers</h2> <p>Nothing holds up a line more than a cashier who likes to chat you up and ask you about your day. If you want to get out of the store quickly, avoid them like the plague. Focus on cashiers who are all business and are scanning items at a quick rate. As you begin to shop regularly at stores in your area, you'll quickly determine who the chatty cashiers are and learn to pick another checkout line.</p> <h2>3. Head Left for Fastest Checkout</h2> <p>According to Robert Samuel, who stands in line for a living, you should always head to the left cashier when walking up to the front of the store. This is because 90% of us are right-handed and tend to head to the far right cashier because of it. Be the fish swimming upstream and start with the cashier furthest left and you'll typically find shorter lines and get out of the store quicker.</p> <h2>4. Pick a Line That Leads to Several Cashiers</h2> <p>Single lines that lead to more than one cashier are good things. They tend to move quickly and are often a better option than a single line leading to a single cashier. While not prevalent at grocery stores, you'll will see these types of lines at banks and discount and department stores like TJ Maxx, Ross, Target, and Marshalls.</p> <h2>5. Examine Self-Checkout Lanes</h2> <p>As a general rule, if the self-checkout lanes are stacked with shoppers, go stand in line at a regular register. This is because a trained cashier can scan your items, collect payment, and bag your stuff much quicker than most shoppers can on their own. Also, if you're buying large items, it can be a bit tricky navigating the self-checkout lane as they require you to place items on a scale. Large items typically won't fit and will require you to get the attention of a store attendant, making it a longer process.</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/kyle-james">Kyle James</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/5-checkout-line-tricks-to-finish-shopping-faster">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.
