Tuesday Tidbit: Spend Less on Clothes, Fend off Allergies and Ease Depression

It’s Tidbit Tuesday- where I share three little tidbits with you to make life a little easier.  Today I’ll tell you how to spend less on clothing, fend off allergies and ease depression. So grab a cup of coffee and learn how to make life a little simpler!

Spend less on clothes by shopping on Wednesday -Most weekend sales start on Wednesday or Thursday, says Natalie McNeal, founder of The Frugalista.com. For example, Macy’s Friends and family weekend sale always starts the Wednesday before. So even though a store may be advertising a weekend sale, check their website to discover the actual start date. You’ll not only find amazing deals, but you’ll also get the biggest selection.

Fend off allergies with green tea -Hate having to choose between being stuck indoors on sunny days due to seasonal allergies or dealing with allergy meds that make you drowsy? A recent study points to an all-natural alternative that douses allergies without groggy side effects: green tea. Japanese scientists found that green tea’s high concentration of the powerful antioxidant EGCG blocks the production of two allergy causing compounds – histamine and immunoglobulin E – that cause a runny nose, watery eyes and scratchy throat. Researchers haven’t yet figured out a one-size-fits-all dose, so sip one to four cups daily until you feel relief.

Ease depression by sniffing pink grapefruit -It’s not just eating citrus that can help your health – simply smelling it has its benefits, too. According to Japanese research, breathing in pink grapefruit’s aroma for five minutes activates the sympathetic nervous system, triggering the release of feel-good serotonin. So light up a pink grapefruit-scented candle to feel more cheerful. BONUS: The scent can even curb cravings within 60 seconds, studies show.
