Grilling Gadgets That Are Less Than $25

Quick and fast beauty fixes (iStockphoto)

As a busy budget babe, I’m all for ways to save money and time without cutting back on any of my beauty habits. Over the years I’ve accumulated seasonal beauty tips for less, which means that I can fit them in on a Sunday afternoon or those few minutes between work and dinner.

Here are my favorite picks that are $6 and under AND five-minute tips for spring:

1. Feet: After a long dry winter shoved in close-toed shoes, boots and heels, before I go barefoot or wear flip-flops I always make a pilgrimage to Lush for Stepping Stone foot scrub ($4.50; lushusa.com). I love this stuff, and in a matter of minutes your feet will be smooth and dead-skin free.

2. Hair: Always in need for hydration, my go-to for salve for dry hair and split ends is Avon Advance. For only $3.99 (on sale from $8), this delicious serum will turn any amount of scruffy hair in to a head of smooth.

3. Skin: Nothing says summer like the smell of coconut. Get the Coconut Lime Breeze lotion at Bath & Body and you’ll feel light and refreshed for the entire day ($5; bathandbodyworks.com).

4. Lips: Pucker up! Starting at $4.49 on Yahoo! Shopping, you can get Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer and be kissable every second of the day.

5. Nails: As important as it is to have your nails filed and polished, a good set never ignores the cuticle. Grab Badger Balm for $5.99 and all your worries will be pointed elsewhere.

    • Scientists discover dinosaur trapped in amber in unprecedented find

      'Once in a lifetime find' The findings, which shed fresh light on how dinosaurs looked, are published in the December issue of Current Biology. Ryan McKellar, a paleontologist at the Royal Saskatchwan Museum in Canada and co-author of the paper, says he was blown away when Xing first showed him the piece of amber. "It's a once in a lifetime find. The finest details are visible and in three dimensions." Fragments of dinosaur-era bird wings have been found preserved in amber before but this is the first time part of a mummified dinosaur skeleton has been discovered, McKellar said. The tail section belongs to a young coelurosaurian -- from the same group of dinosaurs as the predatory velociraptors

    • What does "Hotel California" really mean? (And other questions for Don Henley)

      The Eagles are among the 2016 Kennedy Center honorees. The band formed in the early 1970s and helped define classic rock on the radio, becoming one of the world’s most successful bands. But when drummer Don Henley hears one of their songs on the radio now, he usually turns it down. “After 44 years, you just really don’t want to hear ‘em when you’re off,” Henley said. “When I’m off duty, I’d rather listen to somebody else, or just silence. Silence is good. You don’t get much of it these days anywhere. So I’m a big fan of silence.” He may be a fan of silence, but with the Eagles, Don Henley created some of the most popular sounds in American music.   Like their hit song, the Eagles seemed really

    • AT&T customers will get an unexpected refund on their next bill

      Hell doesn't appear to be freezing over and it's definitely not April 1st, so I guess this story is actually true. More than 2.7 million AT&T customers will be getting refunds on their bill credits in the next two months, as the Federal Trade Commission settles an issue over AT&T billing for "premium text message services" without the consent of customers. According to the FTC , AT&T added a $9.99-a-month charge to the bills of many consumers, purportedly for "premium text messaging services," including ringtones, wallpaper, and text messages providing horoscopes, flirting tips, celebrity gossip, and other similar information. The practices continued until January 2014, when the FTC managed to get AT&T to stop the practice . But today, the Commission announced that it's been able to go even further, getting AT&T to refund those charges to consumers. Through the FTC's refund program, 2.5 million current AT&T customers will receive a bill credit in the next 75 days, while former customers will be getting a check in the mail. Those refunds aren't small, as the FTC says the average amount is $31. The refunds come from a 2014 settlement, which saw AT&T pay $80 million towards refunds. The refund program itself is being administered by a third-party company, Epiq Systems, rather than AT&T. This is the last step in a long process for the FTC, which has been planning this refund for years. It forced AT&T to notify customers who had been affected by the bad billion practices. Those customers in turn filed claims with the FTC, who examined the validity, and is now processing the refunds. The FTC has established a site to help anyone with questions about the refund process, and to also pre-emptively work against scammers who will undoubtedly use these "refund checks" as an opportunity to scam unsuspecting victims.

    • I'm a Democrat but Clinton staffer Jennifer Palmieri's twisted logic is exactly why we lost

      In an opinion article published this week, the communications director for Hillary Clinton’s campaign – Jennifer Palmieri – highlighted a small electoral victory that ironically captured the reason for my party’s ultimate defeat. “As I like to note, Clinton received more votes for president than any white man in history,” she crowed. Got it. White men bad, women good. In Palmieri’s political world, she believes that we can cruise to electoral dominance if we build a coalition of voters based on identity politics. In other words, if Democrats can get a particular slice of Americans to the polls – women, Jews, ethnic minorities, gay men and lesbians  – we will win. The idea for this dates back

      DEAR ABBY: I am a single, 55-year-old man. During the last year, I have felt lost. My mother, my last close relative, passed away. My brother and sister died years ago, as did my father. We were a very close family. Now I am an orphan! I don’t have children and I’m not sure what I need to do. I’m in the process of selling the family home/office where I worked for the last 30 years, but I feel guilty about it. There’s so much stuff to sort through — both business and personal — that I don’t know where to start. I’m overwhelmed and having so many anxiety attacks I can’t get the things done that I need to. When I sell this place, I know I’m going to be devastated. I have been suffering with depression
