Junk food and hair conditioner

January 21st, 2007 at 04:01 am

I thought it might be a good idea to follow my last post with a couple of the things I did to save a bit of money this month.

1) Bought groceries for the last 2 weekends so I didn't have to order in. Well, actually the groceries waren't as cheap as I thought they would be, but they were cheaper than what I would have spent on ordering in otherwise. Money-wise , I saved about $10-16.

BONUS: I feel less fat eating the stuff that I make instead of junk food.

2) Tried a new brand of conditioner. I know this sounds silly, but I've been using this salon-bought conditioner for the longest time. They cost $14 a tube, and they're really good. I have really long, dry hair. But this month, when my tube ran out, I bought a store brand for $8 - and found that it was equally as good! So I'm going to stick with that from now on.

BONUS: The store-brand one is also less of a hassle for me to buy.

    $14???? GULP!!! Wow- if you can make that other work with your hair that ought to be good for the pocket book over time!!

    Thanks! Oh and I should clarify that its SGD$14. So that's about... US$9? and its a good-sized tube, not a teeny-tiny one-time-use size... Smile

    hehe, from an industry insider point of view, the salon-brand and the retail-brand are nearly identical, except for the fragrance and packaging. don't waste your money, it's all about the perception.

    hmm.. interesting!

    and im not too surpised either. cos i know someone who's in the skincare industry (for a well-known commercial brand) and once i asked her if her new brand of skin lotion was any good. And she told me to get their older (and cheaper!) version instead because it was essentially the same lotion that they used!

    those sneaky marketers!!! *shakes fist at sky*
