Makeup--Blush Color: To find the right shade of blush, check the color of your skin after exercising and try to match that color. Blush should add a healthy glow, not introduce a foreign color.
Eggs--substitute: Out of eggs? Use 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise for each egg required in your baking recipe.
Hotels--group security: When checking into a hotel, get a hotel business card for each family member to carry in case of accidental separation.
Boating--floating keys: Tie a couple of corks to your key ring when you go boating. If you accidentally drop your keys overboard, they won't sink.
Tiptionary*** Thank you to Revell Blog Tour Network Nonfiction for including me in this tour and sending a copy of Mary Hunt's Cheaper, Better, Faster to review. No other compensation was received. ***
What you have here is a revised and updated, fabulously fun collection of tips--short, to-the-point suggestions for ways to do things cheaper, better, and faster. Many of these tips are timeless; others we know were current and relevant five minutes ago, but who knows about next month!
Some of the best tips you will read have completely unknown origins because they've been passed from generation to generation, and someone along the line sent them my way. Some tips were left out because they turned out to be nothing more than myths--legends people believe with all their hearts, but when put to the test, fail.
