Recessionista Tip

Contrary to what my husband thinks, I do try to save money. I do.
Here's my latest sneaky trick. These fabric-y, elastic-type hair ties are all the rage. They do work really well and are more gentle on hair than the usual ponytail holders.
When Target launched its Shop Intuition stuff, including tie-dye headbands, I snapped up a set of three for $3. You can still find them in stores. They kinda suck as headbands — didn't stay in place when I wore them. So, I cut each one into two pony tail holders and knotted the ends. There ya have it — EXACTLY like the ones you can buy online for $10 a pack (plus shipping) but infinitely cheaper. And, you know what that means — mo' money for other shopping.
