    As the days go, we can tell that our planet is constantly being harmed by many people's harsh actions, from tossing trash out the window to filling the airs with factory smoke and fog, basically suffocating the nature around us. And the sad part is that not many people are realizing this. Not to mention that many of our actions are causing the greenhouse effect, and it's not getting any better. While many of us are consistently recycling, avoiding plastic as much as possible, and turning off lights in rooms that we aren't using, there are so many and easier ways to help our planet!

    10 Reasons I Love Target!

    I'm obsessed with Target. No, seriously, Target is my answer to all things in life. Need a shirt? Go to Target. Need bread? Go to Target. Need meds? Go to Target. Fake eyelashes? Shampoo? New pans? Pillows? Rug? Toys? TV? Bras? Diapers? Kids clothes? Xbox? GO TO TARGET! I love Target so much that I would consider getting that damn Target dog or giant red entry ball tattooed on my body if it meant I could spend more time at Target.

    Five Ways Businesses Trick You into Buying Things You Don't Need!

    Five Ways Businesses Trick You into Buying Things You Don't Need!

    In the 21st century, online marketing has taken over the traditional advertisement channels. As attractive as the idea of shopping online from the comfort of your own home may be, we, as customers, must understand that marketers will exploit every single vulnerability that the online platforms provide to reach us easier and close more sales. After all, the main purpose of all businesses is to make money, otherwise they wouldn't exist. This might come as a shock to us because many companies promote their businesses as "customer-oriented", which should in theory mean that they place customer satisfaction above everything else, which is rarely the case. However, there are certain things we can do to avoid being manipulated into impulsive purchases by understanding the different tricks being used and how we can avoid falling for them. In this article I am going to walk you through the five most commonly used practices and what you can do to beat the system and make your online purchases easier and more enjoyable in the long run.
