How to Get a Deal on Pedicures | FreeCoupons.comWarm spring weather means it is time to put away the heavy clothing and break out the lighter seasonal clothing. Those spring dresses and skirts don’t go very well with winter shoes. Shoes for spring include open toes and a lot more exposure of your feet. It is time for a pedicure! Here are some tips to help you get a good deal on pedicures.

Use Daily Deal Websites
Check to see if a daily deal website like Groupon or LivingSocial is offering a discount on pedicures. You could end up with a great deal at a local salon that is usually a bit out of your price range. It also gives you a good reason to try out a brand new place to have your nails done.

Look for Spring Specials
Salons realize that people who have been able to cover up their feet with winter shoes for several months are now in the market for a pedicure. This is the time of year when the salons offer “new customer discounts”. They want to tempt you to come in and hope you will enjoy the pedicure enough to become a regular customer.

Beware the Mani-Pedi Deals
At first glance, it may sound like a great deal. Go into a salon and get your fingernails and toenails done for a discount price. The problem with these kinds of offers is they typically result in a crowded salon.

How certain are you that proper sanitization practices are being followed in a salon that is busier than usual? The deal might not be worth the risk of infection from foot baths and tools that were accidentally used on more than one client.

Do It Yourself
One simple way to save money on a pedicure is to do it yourself. You can make your own foot bath by dissolving 3 tablespoons of baking soda in a basin of warm water. Soak your feet in it. The baking soda will help to make your skin feel smooth.

What if you need a little more exfoliation? Make a paste of 3 parts baking soda and 1 part water. Use that paste as a scrub. The baking soda paste will gently remove dead skin from your feet as you scrub. Need even more exfoliation? Add 1 part brown sugar to the paste, and scrub again.

When you are finished scrubbing, or done with the foot bath, take the time to completely dry your feet with a towel. Apply a moisturizer. Wrap your feet in a warm towel (from the dryer) for five or ten minutes. It is just as effective as a pedicure from a salon (and a lot less expensive)!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
