5 Ways to Save at Concerts and Music Festivals


5 Ways to Save at Concerts and Music Festivals

We are only a few months away from the summer. And with the hottest season of the year comes the opportunity of going to great live events.

All these days of fun can quickly leave you broke. Check the tips below so you can have the greatest time while spending the fewest possible. We don’t want you to be complaining about lack of money during the fall 😉

1. Attend specific days only

Before buying a full pass, make a quick search on the festival’s lineup. You might be able to save if you only attend the day your favorite artist is playing.

2. Buy the tickets early

Once you choose the festivals you want to go to, buy your tickets as early as possible. Use Google Alerts so you can be the “first” to know when the tickets are available. This way, you will be able to take advantages of the lowest prices.

3. Look for deals and cashback

Lemoney.com helps you find coupons on Groupon, Living Social and tickets websites (and also gives you cash back!). If you can’t find special deals, you are able to buy your tickets directly from tickets’ online stores like ticket liquidator and TicketNetwork and get some money back in your pocket.

4. Bring your own snacks and beverages

Some festivals have no restrictive rules regarding outside food and drinks. If you can bring your own, fill your backpack with bottles of water, granola bars, and sandwiches. You will be able to easily save about $40 by avoiding high prices at festivals


5. Share a ride

If the concert is far from your place, it makes sense to carpool. Check with your friends who is going to the event and go together. Every person you add to the car lowers the individual cost with gas and eventual tolls. Have fun in the car with your buddies and spend way less on the way to the festival.

Big events don’t have to stay out of your summer plans. Just take these 5 tips above to cut down on costs and let your main concern be all the fun you are able to have there.

7 Coconut Oil Benefits You should Be Taking Advantage of

There are thousands of recent researches proving coconut oil to be one of the healthiest foods on the planet.
According to medical research, coconut oil can help you get a healthier life. Check the benefits below, and get amazed (just like I got) with how it can improve your well-being:

1. Natural treatment for Alzheimer disease
Coconut oil is a heart-healthy oil that is free of cholesterol and trans-fats and provides many benefits in addition to improving brain health. A recent University of Oxford study suggested that although the effects of coconut oil may be temporary, Alzheimer’s and dementia patients have indeed seen short-term benefits resulting from its use. How cool is that?

2. Prevents heart disease and High blood pressure
Coconut oil is high in natural saturated fats which increase the healthy cholesterol in your body, and also help to convert “bad” cholesterol into good cholesterol. It helps promote heart health and lower the risk of heart disease.

3. Helps combat cancer
There (have been) is a good number of natural remedies and foods (that have been) linked to prevention of cancer, but there have not been many studies, which show that these remedies kill cancer cells for real.
However, a recent study published in the Journal Cancer Research showed that Lauric acid, an active anti-cancer component, can be highly found in coconut oil.
Coconut oil has also be shown to decrease the toxic and often devastating side effects of chemotherapy.


4. Good to boost your immune system

Coconut oil components are of great help to reduce candida, fight bacteria, and create a hostile environment for viruses.
You can try to replace sugar in your diet with coconut oil, since sugar feeds the growth of bad bacteria and coconut oil does just the opposite.

5. Helps to Improve memory
The good fat found in coconut oil has been linked to memory problems improvement.
People that included this oil in their diet has shown improvement in their recall ability. Coconut oil is easily absorbed by the body and is a more efficient fuel for brain cells.

6. For Weight Loss
It helps to burn fat, decrease appetite and it was especially helpful in losing belly fat!
It might seem counterintuitive to assume that eating coconut oil (a fat) will contribute to fat loss, but it is actually what happens. The good fat present in coconut oil helps to control a variety of physiological processes including thyroid function improvement, which assists your body in burning fat for energy.

7. Coconut Oil for Hair Care
If you have dandruff or dry hair coconut oil has the perfect fatty acids to help get rid of these conditions. You can make coconut lavender shampoo (learn more at http://www.stylecraze.com/articles/homemade-coconut-oil-shampoo-recipes-for-beautiful-hair/#gref) to improve the health of your hair and can also use straight coconut oil as an all-natural hair conditioner.

I am no health specialist, and Lemoney`s main virtue is helping you save and earn money on your day to day purchases…

Star Wars Day: May the 4th be with you!

Today is a big and well-planned day for all Star Wars fans around the world. It’s time to show the love for one of the biggest movie series of all times, dress up as Rebel Princess, gather friends for a movies marathon (ready to watch all of the 6?) or just wear your fav Star War’s T-shirt as a proud Jedi.

Why do people say “May the Fourth be with you”?

The date for Star Wars day wasn’t chosen randomly. As a play on words, May 4th is the perfect time to celebrate one of the most important Star Wars phrases: “May the Force be with you”. In the movies, this quote is used to wish good luck 😉

In case you’ve been out of Earth in the past 40 years, this epic space franchise was created by George Lucas and the 1st movie was launched in 1977: Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. (They opted to launch the fourth episode first because of budget and technology issues, and even with this odd decision) As you can observe, the movie quickly became a worldwide success, being transmitted from generation to generation.

As Yoda said, “Pass on what you have learned.” So, take this opportunity to introduce a younger sibling, family member or friend to Star Wars! And don’t forget to take a look at Macy’s special Star Wars collection with 25-30% OFF!

3 Easy Ways to Create Hygge at Home


image: Pinterest

Have you been reading this word recently and have no idea what this means? Hygge is, first of all, a Scandinavian term for wellbeing. Though many countries are showing higher levels of stress, Scandinavian are moving in the opposite direction – what puts them on the top of the happiest people on Earth list. A big part of this wellbeing is connected to their Hygge way of life.

If you try to translate it, you will probably find something like “coziness” or “togetherness”, but as long as this term has no literal translation, it’s pretty difficult to pinpoint the exactly meaning. Hygge is mostly the feeling of creating intimacy at any moment you’re living in.
You can hygge alone or around people, it just depends on you. Maybe tasting that good wine by yourself or surrounded by friends on a dinner table. You can even hygge your home and hygge your lifestyle.

With a better understanding of this term, even places can be described as hygge. Wanna know how? Below are 3 tips to make your place as hyggeligt (hygge-like) as possible:

1. Light some candles
It may look like a simple detail at first, but candles give a touch of peace and joy to the room, especially if they’re scented. The gentle candlelight makes your mind able to think deeper – while the scent makes you feel positive emotions (and it’s usually effective for a better sleep)!

2. Add Texture
Think about a warming and cozy place: soft textures add another dimension to any room, building a relaxing and peaceful environment. The best textures for a hygge house are chunky knit cushions, faux fur throws, and fluffy woolen rugs. Made from soft materials from merino wool to cashmere, these accessories are top-of-mind when it’s about interior design. Choosing the right colors – that bring the feeling of relaxation (no loud colors, ok?) – it’s possible to create a stylish look in any room and also get all the comfort you’ve been looking for.

3. Keep It Simple
Scandinavian design is usually very peaceful and doesn’t match the electric color scheme very well. As the main goal is to free the mind and cozy up, keep it simple. If you still don’t know which colors to pick, choose a light tone and stick to the monochromatic. Play with textures and shapes, maintaining a calm and cozy environment.

See? It’s super easy to create a hygge space – and better: on a budget! Check Lemoney stores and get deals on amazing products for a hygge new you!

5 Reasons Why You Should Use a Budget

Why is it important to use a budget? Isn’t it going to make you look like a control freak or a boring person? Actually, the outcome of being disciplined will amaze you! Take a look at these 5 reasons why you should use a budget:

1. Free your mind to think about other things

Planning on where your money will be used provides a structured way to think about your finances. You can be prepared for the bills yet to come with no surprises. It is obvious that budgeting will not keep you from facing emergencies, some happenings are not controllable. But being prepared for the upcoming expenses is something that we can control and is a great way to avoid “headaches”.

2. Shop without straining your conscience

What is great about preparing a budget is that you know exactly how much money you can spend. So when you go shopping you buy the things you want that fit on your budget and get back home without feeling guilty about it.

3. Makes it easier to reach goals

If you plan to save up for new furniture, paying off your house in “X” years, having children or saving for college…It gets way easier when you have a budget. Possibly you can achieve these goals without budgeting, but you get there faster when you are intentional with how you will use your money.

4. Helps you live debt free

If you have a debt, you can imagine how good it is to live debt free. Using a budget helps you control your finances and it can help you get rid of this situation or never get into it.

5. Allows you to help others

It is common sense that you enjoy life the most when you are living for more than just yourself. Sharing things and helping others brings a joy that it is hard t explain. Using a budget frees you to help people, be generous to others or even buying a round of drinks to your friends. And this is awesome!

These are small steps that can help you a lot. Start being intentional with your spending and saving! Great results will show up quickly.

Cheers

Earth Day

You’ve probably heard something like “Earth Day, Every Day”, right? And for sure, it is. But on April 22nd, it’s celebrated the support for environment protection. And it’s a great opportunity for all of us to start taking action.

Why is this important?

First: Look around the place you’re right now. Wherever you are, believe me: chances are that it was an amazing forest. And the chances of you’re not seeing a natural plant close to you right now are even bigger.

Second: Close your eyes and try to remember all the things you ate in the past weeks. Which percentage of it was natural or Non-GMO? Ok, I know: chocolate comes from cocoa; cocoa is a bean; beans can count as natural stuff… Now seriously: can you see that? Your body was built to consume natural products – and more than a half of our meals are boxed and industrialized.

Third and last (but not least): Start paying attention – at least for one day – at the clothes you’re wearing, the quantity of paper you are using, the volume of waste you’re generating. Is all of this really necessary? Where do all of these products come from? How were they manufactured?

It’s Earth Day! Taking care of your home is also taking care of yourself, of people you love and the ones that are yet to be born. Make Earth Day, every day.
