Why You Should Close Your Toilet Lid


Do you usually walk out of the bathroom after "going" and leave the toilet seat up? What items do you keep near your toilet? There are two really good reasons why you should always close the lid of your toilet seat.

1.  Closing the lid every time will prevent water from evaporating in your toilet. 

2.  Closing the lid before you flush (especially after #2) can prevent the spread of harmful bacteria in the air. When you flush and you see the water swirl it creates a "toilet plume". A toilet plume happens when the swirling water mixes with small waste particles which then become aerosolized (imagine very small particles of feces escaping the toilet and landing on   everything surrounding your toilet).

If you are prone to leaving the seat up or are sick of hearing the toilet seat slam when others are closing the lid, then you have to check out these slow close lids. We installed slow close lids on all of our toilets to prevent that annoying toilet slam noise from the kids. All you have to do is gently touch the toilet lid and it slowly closes on its own.

Warning --> If you flush with your toilet seat up it would be a good idea to keep your toothbrush covered or as far away from the toilet as possible. The germs and bacteria can fly up from the flushing toilet and find its way to your toothbrush, nothing like brushing your teeth with poop particles...ewww!

Check Your Credit Score - For FREE!

Have you checked your credit score lately? If you haven’t, it is time to start! It is very important that you keep track of what is on your credit report and what your credit score is. When you first check your credit report you will want to note everything that is on it. Then keep checking it on a regular basis. This way you will be able to track any errors or fraud. If you do notice something that does not look right to you, you can dispute or report it. And isn’t it great that you can get a free credit score.

A bad credit score can impact you and your family in many ways. Landlords, future employers, car dealerships and insurance companies all look at your credit score. If you have a low/bad credit score you may not get the job you want, you may not be able to move into the home you want and you most likely will pay higher insurance rates. There are many factors that go into your credit score rating; credit history, utilization, payment history, lines of credit and inquiries by others (checking your own score doesn’t count against you).

So be sure to check your free credit score now and learn more on the importance of your credit report.

Attention: Walgreens Pharmacy Users

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you use Walgreens Pharmacy for you and/or your families’ prescriptions?  If so you will definitely want to hear about the latest news with the Walgreens and Express Script contract and how it will affect you.  An unsuccessful negotiation between Walgreens and Express Scripts has caused Walgreens to no longer be a part of the Express Scripts’ pharmacy provider network as of January 1, 2012.  This is bad news for those of you who find going to Walgreens very convenient and comfortable.   Without this contract most of you will have to drive further to get your prescriptions, you may not find a location that offers 24 hour service and to top it off your costs aren’t going to go down (stated by Express Scripts themselves).  This is also bad news for our military families.  A contract for the health and prescription drug program for our military men and women, Tricare, was also negotiated unsuccessfully.

Since there were so many Express Scripts patients using Walgreens pharmacies for years, Walgreens has stepped up and has come out with its own plan to minimize the inconvenience and disruption that could have been caused by the non-renewal of contract.  Walgreens cares about their patients and wants to help make it possible for you to still use their pharmacy.

First check with your local Walgreens Pharmacist to see if you are affected by this contract change (you can also check the back of your insurance cards for the name Express Script.  If you are impacted this is what Walgreens is offering you.  They are offering a special discount on annual memberships for its Walgreens Prescription Savings Club.  This special is only during the month of January; you can join for only $5 or $10 for a family.  This will help you save on more than 8,000 brand name and all generic medications.  They offer more than 400 generics with a three-month supply for less than $1 a week.  This is an amazing deal for those of you who are affected.  The normal membership fees are $20 or $35 for a family, which equals huge savings!

When it comes down to business, Express Scripts really wants customers to use their own mail order pharmacy business instead of using local community pharmacies.  You shouldn’t have to give up on your local pharmacy or Walgreens and lose your favorite pharmacist you have been going to for years.  So hurry and take advantage of this great offer!

Be sure to Follow Walgreens on Twitter and Follow Walgreens on Facebook to keep up with all the latest news, deals and offers!

Homes Available

Guest post from: Steve Delaney

There are a lot of homes available for sale in our area right now and it’s been fun working with my new clients to find what they want. I’ve been a realtor for 10 years and it’s nice that I’ve got so many young, fresh clients to take on (seemingly endless) house tours so they can get exactly what they want. The good thing about the market the way it is right now is that there is so much inventory it’s easy to find the perfect house and have plenty left over to get the furniture you want and home security systems California and all kinds of extras that you may not be able to afford otherwise. I love having so many options to show clients and it’s actually been a good time for me as a buyer’s agent: people are still buying houses no matter what the scope of the market is and that’s just something a good realtor realizes. Don’t worry about what the news says, just do your thing!

Why Budgeting is Important

Do you follow a budget in your household?  Budgeting might be the single most important money saving tip.  If you don’t follow a budget now you should make a New Years resolution to start one.  If you are a business owner you should make a follow a strict budget to keep track of all your finances.  Budgeting could help your business save money and relieve the financial stress and burden.  There are so many reasons why a budget is so important and there are numerous free tools to get you started.  You can do a simple search for free budgeting calculators, templates and budgeting software.  Here is why you should start budgeting and organize your finances.

Budgeting forces you to think about your spending habits.  Once you take a closer look at how you are spending your money you will notice that most of it is unnecessary purchases.  You will notice how much you “really” spend on things like eating out and “entertainment”.   It might be the little shock you need to spend less.  Budgeting will help you get organized and lessen your financial stress.  It is always good to see how much money you have, where it needs to go and how much you have left over to spend and save.  Don’t let finances become a problem in your marriage; budgeting = happy couples and budgeting = successful businesses.  Staying organized will help you build savings, relieve your stress and help you plan for the future.  If you don't know where to start try this easy to use budgeting software.
