Now who would have thought a foot file in the shape of an egg would be a best seller? Over forty-seven million PedEggs have been sold since it first hit the market five years ago.

Based on high marks from consumers, I used it to style my hair and I found it helpful for achieving a voluminous look. The Instyler retails for $99 but for Savvy Spender viewers, enter promo code “Yahoo” and get $10 off plus free shipping, a travel bag and stand. |
