Woman with a ColdIf you suffer from allergies, you know that taking a daily over-the-counter  pill can get costly. Not to mention the potential drowsy side-effects you may encounter. There are many natural ways you can keep allergies out of your home and out of your body. Here are a few ideas:

Get an Air Purifier

An air purifier is a must for anyone who suffers from year-round allergies. Be sure to get one with a HEPA filter, which can remove a significant amount of dust, pollen, and mold spores from the air. If your allergies are really bad, place one in multiple rooms of the house to really clean the air.

Kick Off Your Shoes

When you enter your home, your shoes track in dust, pollen, pet dander and more from the outside. Keep a nice shelf or basket for your shoes by the front door. Ask all of your guests to do the same when they come visit. If they’re uncomfortable walking around in their socks, provide washable slippers or flip flops for them to wear.

Wash That Bedding

Wash all of the bedding in your home once a week. Dust mites just love hanging out in your bed!

Get Rid of Any Clutter

If you have a bunch of stuff lying around your home that isn’t used, consider getting rid of it. Chances are it’s covered in dust. If you keep shoes on the floor of your closet, put them in a hanging shoe organizer or shoe rack. Put all of your dirty sports equipment in the garage. Once you’ve done that, you can adequately sweep, vacuum, or mop your newly empty floor space.

Add These Healthy Supplements

Vitamin C, fish oils, quercetin and probiotics have all been shown to help keep allergies at bay. Vitamin C helps prevent the formation of histamines, which cause your allergy symptoms to flare up. Fish oils act as an anti-inflammatory, which is essential for overall health. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that can boost your immune system to fight allergic reactions. Quercetin is a bioflavonoid found in onions. This natural supplement has been proven effective for allergies, asthma, bronchitis, and the common cold.

Steam Clean

Steam clean your carpets and furniture every 6 months. This helps significantly cut down on dust mite populations and allergen levels.

Keep Your Bathroom Dry

During or after your shower, keep a window open or an exhaust fan on to keep your bathroom dry. Warm, moist environments are breeding grounds for mold, which is a top allergen.

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.
