Comments Off on Win an iPad!

I have seen the iPad, and WOWSA it’s a sweet piece of technology. When I took the train a few months ago, the guy next to me had one. It was so difficult not to stare, lol! But they are $500, can you believe it?! That’s way too much for a “fun” gadget. So I’ve […]

Not to mention that I’m also STILL shopping for stuff for the home renovation: rugs, lighting, etc. And now that winter is on the way, the kids need clothes, shoes, school […]

Comments Off on Get Some Freebies!

I don’t know what it is– maybe because we are nearing the holidays, or because the lazy lull of summer is over? But I am finding an explosion of websites offering freebies. “Free” just so happens to be my favorite price; how about you? The website is www.freecatcher.com. It’s well-organized.

Swizzie Live Auction

Comments Off on Swizzie Live Auction

I’m not very fond of eBay. Everything there (well, everything that I look for) is expensive. I don’t understand why people would sell something for two times more expensive than if I just go to the store and buy it brand new. If there’s a specialty item that’s worth it, I guess that’s another matter.. […]

Comments Off on Boxes Just Ain’t What They Used to Be

The Hubs works part time at a grocery store. On occasion, I ask him to bring home boxes. We are undergoing renovation on the house, so good, thick, boxes are desperately needed. You’d think that The Hubs would be able to grab the choiciest, choosiest, hardiest, bestest boxes, wouldn’t you? Nope. Boxes are LOUSY, people. […]

Apartment Hunting Made Easy

Comments Off on Apartment Hunting Made Easy

Unless you made your millions while in your 20s, or inherited a house after leaving home, you know that apartment hunting is miserable. I don’t know anyone who likes it. All that hunting through scads of classified ads, all that phone calling, all those appointments! I hated apartment hunting. Well, thanks to the age of […]
