Pony-O Review

Pony-O Review

My hair has always been long, thick and curly, so I usually end up putting it up most days (even though I spend a lot of time styling it). More often than not, I straighten my hair because it's easier to maintain and lasts longer than curly. When I leave my hair curly, more products are needed to maintain the look I want. Over the years I have also tried many different hair accessories and haven't found one I am completely in love with. My face shape is more of an oval. Most products I've tried just give my head an egg shape, are too loose and after a while they give me a headache. I wanted to try the Pony-O after seeing ads on Facebook showing how cute a ponytail can look. I asked for this item for my stocking stuffer and low and behold there it was...  So lets dive right in and try this new product. 

THE PRODUCT: The Pony-O™Hair Accessory = 2 pieces for $19.95 (coupons and deals regularly offered... currently 2 pieces are on sale for $15.95)


Get Money Back From Deceptive Companies

Have you ever purchased a frozen meal? The ones that you throw into the microwave, look super appealing on the box and even have commercials showing how elegantly they are served. If you have then I'm sure you've noticed how deceptive the marketing can be for these types of meals. According to an article by the Daily Mail, The Art of Deceptive Advertising, they state that frozen food packages are constantly used to deceive consumers. And that nearly half of Americans believe advertising to be 'fairly honest'. Consumers continue to buy these products despite the fact that they look nothing like what is being advertised. Here is how consumers can fight back against deceptive advertising.

Here is a story sent in from a fellow Tips 4 Saving reader:
On July 27, 2018 I bought 2 Atkins Meat Lasagna’s for my husband at our local grocery store.  My husband loves lasagna so based on the photo on the box, I purchased them.

Turn your Coins into Cash - 4 Easy Steps

Can you imagine throwing away 62 million dollars every year? This is exactly what Americans are doing, literally every single year according to a 2016 Bloomberg report. I bet you're wondering how we are achieving this disappointing stat. It's actually pretty easy... we no longer care about our loose change and we're throwing it all away (62 Million dollars worth).

Most of you have probably noticed that most National banks have done away with coin collecting machines. This has been the main reason for the decline in saving our coins. Nobody wants a bunch of change cluttering up their space. Since the decline in banks offering coin collecting services there has been a rise in coin-counting machines. You have probably noticed these machines at your local grocery store or next to the DVD or Lottery Kiosiks at other retailers. You may have even used one of these machines to turn your coins in. Did you know these coin counting machines are actually taking your money. You lose mon…
