Lip balm is very popular in the fall and winter months for good reason. Many people swear by beeswax from brands like Bert’s Bees, but for me – petroleum jelly works better every time, and it’s cheaper.

You can never have to many charging cables: one for home, for the car and for the office. With iOS 7, Apple tightened the requirements on non-standard cables that don’t adhere to the MFi program. The discount that Apple offers is so little, that in most cases the price of 3rd party cables is basically the same as the cables from Apple directly, so just get it from the source. Fortunately, buying through Amazon actually saves a couple of bucks.

Maintenance isn’t fun, but when it comes to dress shoes that can cost $200 or more it can be the difference in years of life. These cedar trees help the shoes maintain their shape and draw the day’s moisture out to preserve the leather. Another tip: don’t wear leather shoes two days in a row. Giving them a day to rest on a cedar tree will help preserve them for years to come.
