Auditor of State Charlie Daniels returned $18.1 million to Arkansans with unclaimed property in fiscal year 2014, an increase of 60% over the total claims paid in 2013. Properties that were returned this year represent abandoned checking accounts, utility deposits, stocks, rebates and more. The office processed 33,450 claims, a 150% increase in the number of claims over 2013 that Auditor Daniels attributes to a new approach his office is taking to find owners.
Here is a complete list of Little Rock Mommy's tips on how to shop smartly during this Sales Tax Holiday: Tips: 1. Use savings apps: Checkout 51- Offers rebates you can redeem as soon as you purchase select items. ibotta- Offers rebates you can redeem as soon as you purchase select items. Shopkicks- Offers coupons for many stores even at the mall. Get points for just walking into a store. Target Cartwheel- Offers Target store discounts which can be combined with a manufacturer coupon & a Target Store Coupon. Target Mobile Coupons- Text "Offers" to 827438. 2. Shoppers should think outside of the Box: Try consignment shops, Salvation Army, and even the mall! You can get like-new designer clothing at consignment shops, the Salvation Army, and Good Will - so those are smart places to shop for families without a lot of money, or who have several children to clothe. At the mall, check clearance racks for previous season discounts. 3. Get some of your Christmas shopping in! Clothes, electronics, and stocking stuffers are a few great buys during the tax holiday. 4. Take advantage of lay-a-ways. Qualifying items placed on or picked up from layaway during the Sales Tax Holiday are exempt from sales tax. This is another great way to get some of your Christmas shopping done. 5. Use coupons to save yourself money, but know the rules. While coupon use is allowed during the tax holiday, coupons are not allowed to be used to reduce the price of an item so it will meet the guidelines of the tax holiday rules. The only exception to this is if the coupon is a store coupon - If a retailer offers a discount to reduce the price of an eligible clothing item to $100 or less, the item will qualify for the exemption. This applies to all discounts even if a retailer's coupon or loyalty card is required to secure the discount. 6. Know your neighbors! In this case, I'm talking about Arkansas & Mississippi. Mississippi Tax Free Holiday is July 25th-26th and the Arkansas tax free holiday is the same weekend as Tennessee (first weekend of August). The interesting thing is that Arkansas allows several items to be purchases tax free that Tennessee does not. For instance, in Arkansas you can get cosmetics, wedding clothing, wigs, hairpieces, and even costumes tax free- but there is no tax discount on computers!! 7. Be sure to make a list and know what you need to get before you go. This will prevent impulse buying. 8. Use websites like Little Rock Mommy which are designed to find the deals for you so you can spend less time doing the research. NO-NOs: 1. Do not buy a laptop or computer without knowing exactly what your needs are compared to what the machine you are looking at offers. If you are going to spend a lot of money on a computer it needs to meet your needs. 2. Hold off on purchasing electronics if newer models are about to be release. Unless you do not mind having older versions of electronics like the Kindle Fire or iPhones, you should hold off. 3. Don't assume something is on the allowed tax-free list. Make sure you visit the official state websites and print the list of allowed items. It would be a big disappointment if you spent a lot of time trying to find the best price on a specific item only to realize afterwards that you still had to pay taxes. Click here to see the 2014 Tax Free Holiday Schedule and links to each states inclusion list. 4. Don't forget, back to school deals are very predictable. The almost 10% tax savings today may not be as great a savings as when the items go on clearance at the start of September.
Create the Style You Crave is different from most decorating books. While filled with visual eye candy, it also explores how creatively expressing yourself in your home and gardens helps you create the life you really want to live. No matter your budget or style, you'll be inspired by stories of everyday women with busy lives and limited budgets who have infused personal values, meaning, and style into making their own "sweet spot" homes. Instead of feeling overwhelmed you will feel inspired as you see how other women like you have done it. You will develop your own sense of style by making a mood board and will have access to loads of resources, both online and off, so that you can create an environment that reflects who you are and what you want, so you can draw more of that into your life.

When people think of strength training they often think of bench presses and body builders. But the equipment can be as simple as a pair of hand-held weights. · Perfect for someone new to weight lifting · Easy to hold · Get to pick the weight that work for you. I recommend 2lb to 5 lb. · Versatile. Can do several different exercises just by changing your form. So when you are doing a strength training program what should you do as you progress....more weight or more reps? · Depends on ultimate goal o If you want to build muscle mass you'll want to increase the amount of weight. The weight level should challenge you but it shouldn't be so heavy that your form gets sloppy. o If you want to tone, then more reps is the way to go. But, again, you still need to challenge yourself. Doing 100 lifts of a 1lb weight is going to do much. Let's talk form…what should people keep in mind when doing strength training? (Charla will demonstrate; could use text as graphic) · Make Your Muscles Do the Work o Some people will swing the weight rather than lift it. The momentum of the weight does the work not your muscles. · Pay Attention For Form o Is your elbow supported? Are you standing up straight? Doing exercises in front of a mirror is a great way to watch your form. · Work A Variety of Muscles o You can change up a simple bicep curl to target different parts of the bicep by adjusting the way the palm is facing. Palms up is your regular curl & palms in is your hammer curl · Take Your Time o When you try to speed up that's when your form starts to suffer. www.lrac.com

TODAY from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Arkansas Children's Hospital 6 Children's Way in the Children's Hall in Little Rock. July is national Ice Cream Month! Blue Bell is bringing several flavors of Ice Cream, but the highlight is the Flavor of the Month: Magic Cookie Bar! We are seeing a decline in blood donations during the summer months and it's often difficult to meet the needs of patients. The Red Cross is currently working to prevent a summer blood shortage. The heat, school's being dismissed for summer and family vacations can all keep donors from making or keeping their blood donation appointments. The need for blood is constant, and patients don't get to take a summer break from receiving blood. This summer, the Red Cross is asking people to choose their one day to give during the 100 days of summer to offer hope to families of patients in need. Sweet rewards like a pint of Blue Bell ice cream are a fantastic incentive for donors also.Go to redcrossblood.org or call 1-800 RED CROSS.
As babies age, it's important to think about child-proofing, which is sometimes an area friends and families forget about when buying shower gifts. The Arkansas Children's Hospital Injury Prevention Center partners with community groups to host free Safety Baby Showers for new/expectant mothers. Mothers who attend the showers receive education on home safety, safe sleep, motor vehicle safety and prevention of Shaken Baby Syndrome. Contact the Injury Prevention Center at (501) 364-3400 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Why are injuries so common in babies? (Childproofing kit) Injuries can happen at any age. Babies under one year old are at risk for injury for many reasons. See the injuries listed below. For each type, we have listed one or more reasons why babies are at risk. · SUFFOCATION: Babies do not have good control of their heads and necks. · If their mouths and noses get covered by bedding or other soft items, they can't move away and can't get air. · BURNS: Babies explore by tasting and touching. · POISONING: Babies' digestive systems work slower than an adults'. If a baby eats or drinks something poisonous, it will stay in his system longer and cause more damage. Babies' skin is thinner and not as protective as adult skin. · DROWNING Babies do not have good balance when learning to walk. They may stand up in a bathtub and lose their balance, or may fall into a pond, pool, toilet, bucket or other water. Babies do not understand danger. As they crawl or walk, they may find unsafe places, like bathtubs, hot tubs, pools, ditches, or other water. · FALLS Babies do not understand danger. When they start to crawl or walk, they may find unsafe places, like stairs and porches. They may also climb onto furniture and then fall. Younger babies may be dropped by caregivers. They may also fall off of changing tables and other surfaces. Safe Sleep (Halo Sleep sack, pacifiers) The best way to prevent suffocation and SIDS is to make sure your baby sleeps safely. Follow these steps to give your baby a safe sleep: · Do not sleep with your baby. · Put your baby to sleep in a safety-approved crib or bassinet. · Put your baby on his back to sleep, at night and for naps. Burns and Scalds (Smoke detector, bath thermometer) Install smoke detectors. Have a fire escape plan. Keep babies and small children out of the kitchen. Practice safety in the kitchen. Check the temperature of your hot water heater. Prevent electrocutions and electrical burns.

Steve Wildman Wilson shares how to prevent getting ticks and chiggers on you and what to do if you do get them. Prevention: -Dress protectively. If you're hiking through grass or underbrush, fend off chigger mites and ticks by wearing a long-sleeved shirt secured at the wrist, waist, and throat; tuck your pants into your socks or boots. Cover your body as much as possible. -Wear light-colored, tightly woven fabrics: it's easier to spot ticks on white or tan slacks than on dark ones, and the ticks may not be able to grab onto the tight weave of slippery materials such as nylon. A hat may help, too, since ticks like to settle on the scalp. -Use insect repellent. One of the best ways to ward off chiggers and ticks is to use an insect repellent containing DEET. Be sure to follow label directions. Also available are tick repellents that contain permethrin. Permethrin is applied to clothes before you put them on. The repellent must not be applied to your skin. Spray applications are effective for up to two weeks, even after laundering. -Check yourself. Inspect your skin and clothing occasionally for ticks, especially when you're in underbrush or forests. Ticks often crawl around on clothing or even on the skin for a long time before they bite. Later do a thorough check of your entire body. Have someone look at your back and head, if possible, or use two mirrors. -Try to stay near the center of trails. In overgrown countryside, walking in cleared areas reduces your risk. -Shower and shampoo after your outing. This may help remove ticks and chiggers that haven't yet begun to feed. Check your clothes too; wash them immediately to remove any ticks that may be hidden in creases. Inspect any gear you were carrying. -Check pets after they've been outdoors. Remove ticks from them as you would from yourself. -Inspect your children. Check them over daily for ticks, perhaps before they go to bed. This is especially important during the summer, when they spend lots of time outdoors.
