Cheapism 2hrs ago
Bulk-Buying Boo-Boos Costco is practically a mecca for bargain-minded shoppers. Sure, you have to purchase an annual membership to get in the door — but in return, you get access to a world of high-quality goods at great prices, all backed by a generous return policy. Whether you need a new household appliance, a set of tires for your car, seasonal clothing, fresh produce, or the biggest containers of Lysol wipes you've ever seen, you can find almost any type of product at Costco. But despite its legendary reputation for great prices, there are lots of common Costco mistakes that could end up costing you money. Make sure you're not doing any of the following.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
