Smart devices are becoming more and more relevant in our lives and it is time to start adapting to the new way of living.  If you are familiar with IoT or the Internet of Things, you are beginning to or have seen the trends that are bringing all of our home devices together.   This has also been happening in the business world.  Even our home appliances including coffee makers, washing machines, lighting and door bells are becoming connected to the internet.

Let's face it, we would all love to have the latest tech devices. After all, it would make our lives more convenient, simpler and more manageable.  But, all of this new tech comes at a price.  We all know that tech devices can be pretty expensive.  Some phones cost as much as $1,000! Owning the latest tech  can really break the bank.  But, with a lot of hard work,  you can search for great deals all over the internet.

Why Its Important To Stay on Top of Your Finances

(Photo Source)

Do you find yourself living paycheck to paycheck?  If so, you may not be properly staying on top of your finances.

According to Chase.com there are 5 ways to get your finances under control in 30 days.  Here they are:



Check Your Credit Report

Checking your credit report regularly is a good habit to form. This allows you to keep track of where any mistakes may be and remove them.  It also allows you to see where your credit stands. 

Always go over all of the accounts listed on your report carefully and make sure that they all belong to you.  Also, make sure that any accounts you closed in the past have been closed.  You should also monitor for any incorrect reporting of delinquency.



Open Letters From Your Bank

A lot of us like to toss junk mail or what we perceive to be junk mail in the trash without opening it first.  When it comes to your bank, always open the mail that is sent.

Some banks send out letters about increasing your credit limit.  This may help build up your credit…

To all and their families, who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of others, thank you.

Life's Dirty Little Secrets - Caring for Ring Around the Collar with Biz

It's time to take charge people!  We are talking about dirty laundry here!  Do you have laundry woes that are the bane of your clothes cleaning tasks?  We all have those certain stains that seem to always haunt us in the laundry room.  Mine is my husband's uniform collars.



I have a husband who is a full time fire fighter in a big city.  He always wears a white collared uniform shirt.  Unfortunately, those collars tend to collect oils and sweat throughout the day, and cause ring around the collar.

Biz helps me fight those nasty stains effectively.  It is very important not to let collar stains set too long,  as a matter of fact, even if a collared shirt looks cleaned after being worn, you should still launder it.  Your body oils get attached to the shirt and over time start to turn the shirt yellow. So keep that in mind.

I have some tips on ring around the collar.





Prevention and Reduction
Ring around the collar is caused by body's sweat, natural oils and dead skin.  If you sweat…

Tips for Becoming a Successful Entrepreneur

(Photo Source)
Success is the main goal of any individual who has a dream of becoming an entrepreneur.   Of course, success is usually not handed to us, we have to work at achieving it.  
Business Insider recently listed the Top 5 Tips from super successful entrepreneur Richard Branson.  I want to share those tips with you.

Tip 1 is to hire passionate, excellent people
It is always important to hire people who are as passionate and driven as you are.  You want people who will help you be the success you want to be and who want to be successful as well.

Tip 2 is never to forget that your employees make your business.
Your business would not be successful if it were not for the people who do all of the hard work to make it that way.  Always show them that they are appreciated.


Tip 3 is to not focus on mistakes.  Instead, praise the positive.
Praise and recognition go a long way and always starts at the top when it comes to a successful business.  Don't let your employees fear about failure.…

Taking a Little #MeTime With Yardley Soaps

Me Time is important to me.  So many times I forget to take the time to take care of myself, because I am too busy putting my families needs before my own.  There is nothing wrong with that, but it is important to take a little time for me.  A nice relaxing bath and a good book are the perfect way for me to unwind after a long day.

Pretty scents in my bath routine help to set the relaxing mood for me.   Yardley Soaps has beautifully scented soaps that are great quality, lather beautifully and are priced under two dollars.

Tips For Cleaning Your Fruits and Veggies

Summer time is here and gardens will soon be blooming with an abundance of fruits and vegetables for all to enjoy.  Many of us may not have the pleasure of growing our own gardens, so may be forced to purchase them in local markets.




Recently there have been various scares of contamination about certain produce, including lettuce, spinach and tomatoes, which caused concern to us consumers.  So how do we ensure that the foods that we are consuming are safe?

Many people do not realize that the way we handle our produce can make a difference.  According to some experts at the FDA, fresh produce can become contaminated in many ways.  While they are growing, they can be contaminated by animals, the soil they are growing in and poor hygiene among farmers or their workers. With the many hands produce passes through on its journey to the supermarkets and farmer's markets, it passes through many more.  They can even be contaminated during food prep and improper storage.
