Supermarkets In France Told No More Food Waste

It’s common practice for grocery stores everywhere to throw away food that’s still safe to eat but has imperfections such as those that appear on produce, or the expiration dates on other products have passed. The French Parliament has approved a bill that prohibits large supermarkets from throwing away food that didn’t sell. They will have to give the food to charity or make it available for use as animal feed or for composting. Markets over 400 square meters in size will be forced to sign contracts to that effect by July of 2016. Those that don’t comply can face fines or jail time.

Thumbtack.com in coalition with Sam Tabar say that the law in France didn’t go far enough. The French throw away 20 kilos (44 pounds) of food each year, while Americans dispose of approximately 1/3 of what they buy. With so many people going hungry in the world today, all countries, including the United States, should join France in banning the disposal of good, edible food.

Going to Yard Sales to Save Money

Yard sales are popping up all over the place now that it is well into the spring and almost summertime. Yard sales are a great resource for those who want to find things that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to find as well as to save some serious money. You would be amazed at the amount of large ticket items you’d find at a yard sale, but you need to visit some of these to find exactly what you’re looking for yourself. Finding the right yard sales makes a world of difference because of the fact that many of them aren’t necessarily everyone’s cup of tea. A lot of people having yard sales might be selling nothing but clothes which you might not be interested in yourself.

The best thing to consider doing is to look locally to find different yard sales going on. You might find that more people have yard sales on the weekend because of the fact that they can get more customers to stop by. By looking locally and finding out which yard sales are going on, it’ll be a lot easier for you to find exactly what you want without having to miss anything. Local newspapers and advertisements may also have ads about different sales going on that people might be having. Boraie Development LLC point out that looking into these ads is a good way to find what you need for your own benefit.

The Rules of Buying Italian Leather Shoes

I’m not a shoe snub by any means, but there are rules to follow. You can’t just go into a shop and buy the first pair you see. There are protocols, especially if you want to wear the best quality.

1) Good leather will be supple, but firm. Some shoes might have a stiffness to them. You will have to wear them in a bit. Never go for the high glossy look. They have the look of patent, but never the feel. The shoe will feel plastic. Kenneth Cole shoes often times have this look and feel of being fake. I should know, I used to own a few pairs. These brands are not what they are cracked up to be. The true Italian leather shoes will have the right feel to them. If you want to know which ones I am speaking of, check out the Paul Evans site. These shoes are the real deal when it comes to true leather.

2) Unless you are going for the boot style, shoes should not be more then 3 cm high. I have seen other shoes with almost a heel type look. This is not the shoe you need to be looking for. The Paul Evans site has the right type of heel you need to be looking for.

3) You want a shoe that resembles the look and personality of your foot. Never get something which is too the extreme. I saw a picture of one the other day. These shoes might look good, but they really aren’t real Italian leather shoes. A real shoe will fit the customer’s style, not the other way around.

4)Consider the clothes you will be wearing with the shoes. Don’t wear a slim shoe with baggy clothes. This will look awful. It won’t give off the right impression, especially in business. It also looks sloppy. The right shoe will compliment the clothes you are wearing, not distract from them.

5) Always look for some outside opinion. Go to a shop where the sales guy know what he is talking about. Ask him for his opinion. This is why he is there. He can help point you in the right direct.

Never go to a shop where you hear, “I don’t know, I just work here.” This is a bad sign. If you do hear this, thank the person for their time and look for the nearest exit.
