4 Effective Fashion Shopping Tips For When You're In A Hurry

Most of us enjoy shopping as a way to relax and unwind after a busy week. It’s become something of a hobby or favorite pastime. Perhaps you have a time each week when you head to the mall with a girlfriend and check out the latest lines in each store? Sure, it might be just window shopping some weeks, but there is still something fun about it. So what on earth can you do if you never seem to find the time to browse and meander at the mall?

1. Inventory
If your closet is jam-packed with fabulous fashion choices, chances are you haven’t actually got a clue what is in there. It’s time to do a inventory! By going through your closet, and clearing it out, you’ll know exactly what needs to be replaced. Nothing lasts forever, after all. And nothing stays in fashion for that long either!

Start by clearing everything out. Now start putting pieces together again. You might sort by season. Let’s face it, black jeans aren’t supposed to work in the height of summer. Alternatively, categorize your wardrobe by type. Skirts, dresses, leggings, tops, and blouses might work for you. Take out anything you’re not likely to wear for the next three months and put it away somewhere else. Vacuum packing can save you a lot of space!

2. Shopping List
By now, you’ve got a working and workable closet with your fashion choices for this season neatly placed and ready to wear. You’ve inventoried your wardrobe, so you know which items are screaming out to be replaced. This is your shopping list. Write it down, and carefully describe what you’re going to buy. Pick one item at a time, and get ready to shop fast!

3. Store Choices
You might have a favorite store that you buy most of your essentials from. Do try some online boutique options as well so you can increase your range of options. Shopping online can be done any time of the night or day, so you don’t have to hurry back to your car or rush in and out. If you do choose a mall boutique, head for the rack that has the items you’re looking for. Avoid everything else so your time can be maximized trying things on.

4. Personal Shopper
Many malls and department stores offer a personal shopper service. You might be able to book this in advance and ask them to find you your item ahead of your appointment. This saves you searching through the store yourself. Now you can spend your time trying things on to get the right fit. Of course, a personal shopping advisor usually works best for you after you’ve met and they know your body shape. Take the time to do this first for future hurried shopping events.

It is possible to dress well and shop fast. These 4 tips to focus your attention and speed up the browsing process can help you find what you want in a hurry. Do you have any speed shopping tips to share?

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
