Back To School Shopping Rules

Having some rules as guides for back-to-school shopping is a perfect way for parents to help their kids buy their school needs and yet still within the budget. At the same time, parents can help their children develop a good lifelong financial habits in the process.

Parents can lead by setting an example when it comes to handling finances intelligently.

Here are the tips that should start a parent-kid conversation when shopping for school needs.

  • Before going to the mall, both parents and the kids should know what you can afford and can't. Make sure that a certain budget amount is set and both should stick with it.
  • Kids should make a list of things they need and both parents and kids can go over with the list for a further review. Having a list can also help kids understand of what they really need rather than what they want. It will also help them to plan and save.
  • Both parents and kids should sit down and discuss what to purchase now and what can wait until later in the school year. This way, both can take advantage for discounts and sales.
  • Using smartphone. It can help as a shopping assistant with the help of some free apps that can be used to get the best deals as well as the closest locations on a variety of items. Smartphones can also be used to scan barcodes to compare prices on the items on the shopping list, as well as it can help check availability both online and in the actual store locations closest to home.

Things You Should Know To Avoid Sports Injuries

If you work long hours from a sedentary job, a sudden burst of activity can make you a high risk for injury, particularly in the lower back and knees. So, just increase your activity at intensity considering your pace, distance, or weight by at least 10% per week.

Before exercising, be sure to take 16 ounces of water first thing in the morning, and 16 ounces about half hour before you exercise. This can help you avoid dehydration (whether severe or moderate) that can prevent you from tripping or twisting your ankle.
Drink more liquids if your activity lasts more than an hour. Eating greens and bananas regularly can also prevent cramping during your exercise.

Try skipping the brace (over-the-counter) if you plan of wearing them for more than a day or two, as they tend to weaken the muscles so they're more susceptible to injury.

Try buying a foam roller. You can search them online for cheaper prices. According to a recent study, it found that 10 minutes following foam rolling, flexibility increases by more than 10%. To use a foam roller: - lie on a 6-inch diameter foam log, then press on the muscle you're targeting with your body weight. As you roll, you will break down knots and improve range of motion.

If you are inspired, try R.I.C.E. first before you rush to the emergency room for a minor injury. R.I.C.E. means Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevate, which is a good treatment for several days. If there is still a discomfort, ask your doctor for a referral to a physical therapist.
This can help you recover faster and get a lower cost of treatment compared to those who have delayed care.

Back-Packing To School

School time is almost here. So, it's another time to struggle for shopping school supplies for the kids and trying to make ends meet. For parents who have smaller kids, one essential school need they must have is getting them a cool, nice backpack that fits each of their personality. How about a backpack that can be personalized? Kids are easy to please...for sure they would love it! :)

Have you found a personalized backpack that is affordable and yet it is still of good quality and can last longer than just a cheap ordinary backpack? It's time to impress your child and make her/him happy with a personalized logo of their favorites or personalizing their backpacks with their names on it with certain designs that they would love. You don't need to worry about the price because it is budget-friendly. Try browsing various designs and you won't regret you have bought one ;).

My Phone's Support Accessories!

Right after I bought my Iphone 6+, it looks so delicate that anytime I drop or hit it hard with any object, it might break! :) I know I sound so silly, but it was just natural for me to become over protective with this phone because it came with a pricey tag! I chose to get the unlocked one since I do travel a lot and can use it out of the country.

So, I tried looking for a casing that wouldn't look so bulky and heavy so I can carry it conveniently in my smaller purses. I actually tried looking in some stores, but I just don't like the styles as they are too thick.
I tried online, and I saw some. I saw this pair from Amazon, and one of the features say they can protect the phone from sudden hard drops and scratches. The only downside of this is, it takes a while to fit it on the phone as you have to really stretch the corners to fit in the phone's size. Same thing when you remove it. But truly, I already tested the credibility of it when I brought it in one of my trips in the Caribbean. I used my phone with the blue protective cover in taking a shot with my phone stand. The tripod was light and suddenly there was that gusty breeze that passed by, and the tripod collapsed. I was running to catch it but were not able to do it on time before it hit the floor. I picked my phone and I there was my phone, still good without any single scratch and cracks! Whew! Thank God! So, I am loving these two despite of the tight fit! ;)

I also bought another style with a cover design and a 4 pocket slots for cards or IDs or paper bills. It's actually one cool design that I like. Uniquely done. It also has a strap that will act as a support to avoid accidental drops. But I couldn't speak for myself if this can protect the phone for a scratch or sudden drop. I just hope I wouldn't drop it in anyway! I rarely use this one though, so I guess it should be okay.

House Cleaning, Easy As 1, 2, 3!

Cleaning a huge home can be very tough including some other household chores you do in between. I have been struggling these past few weeks catching up with my household cleaning and clearing stuff that I and my husband no longer need. Well, I can perhaps do the disposing of old stuff like that, but the cleaning and scrubbing?...

I know most of us would be always busy at work most of the time, and we couldn't even barely just make the shower or tub cleaned! So, how about a housecleaning service? Would that make our life even easier? Oh, yes!...a LOT! ;)
