How to Get What you Want for Less

ScreenHunter_126 Sep. 28 20.52Everyone likes a deal, and there are plenty of them out there, but we have to dig a little.  There are lots of good finds to save on everything from groceries to utilities and from pet supplies to flowers!  This time of year is one of those times that people are looking for the best and biggest deals.  With winter & Christmas coming, higher bills and extra expenses are upon us and savings is more crucial than ever!

So where to start?  When thinking about shopping for anything from the basics to starting your Christmas shopping early, Amazon is an absolute go-to! Why? They have everything for cheaper!  Did you know that there are entrepreneurs who make a living by posting products on Ebay and then when someone buys that item the entrepreneur buys it on Amazon and ships it to the buyer?  Amazon truly has everything from groceries to light fixtures, Halloween costumes, electronics and even a bridal and baby registry for brides and mom’s to be!ScreenHunter_127 Sep. 28 20.54

You may already know about all the great deals on Amazon, but you may not know that as many as 30 of the 50 U.S. states are energy deregulated.  Why should you care?  Because that means if your state is one of them you now have a choice of who your energy provider is AND it provides competition in your state, which lowers prices.  Check your local Public Service Commission to see who the providers are in your area and you may also be able to see what the current prices are of each ESCO (Energy Service Company).

There are also a lot of great shopping apps out there that help you find what you are looking for online, all in one place instead of searching website after website after website.  Two of the newest apps are Alibaba and Leafit.  Alibaba works much like the Biz Rate website giving you a list of the product you are looking for so you can shop several different sites at once and purchase right from the app or online from your computer. Leafit will offer something similar but with a social media twist. The idea behind Leafit is to share pics just as those on Pinterest and Facebook do, but the pics have e-commerce attached to them.  In other words, a product comes along with the picture.  You could purchase that product from that picture, or you could go to the search option and search for something else, and again get a list of the places that carry the product, along with the price at each vendor.  Retailers at both Alibaba and Leafit include popular sites like Amazon, Walmart, Target, Macy’s and Lowes.

There are many ways to save today and many tools to help you get there.  Always be looking for a deal so you can spend that money on something more fun, like a trip to Disney or the beach, a new outfit, or maybe on the rising energy bills that will be coming this winter.  Either way, savings is a good thing!  To your savings!

Is Your Home Business Recession Proof?

Originally posted on Energize Your Income:

There are lots of great home businesses out there.  People usually choose something they are passionate about and that they can do part-time while working their regular job.  Many who have home businesses are women that are doing it as a part-time supplemental income.  If they make some money great, if they don’t that’s okay too.

But now let’s talk about getting serious with a home business.  Let’s talk about those who want or NEED to earn a REAL income with that business. What are some considerations when deciding what type of business to start?  One might first start with ‘who will my customer be?’ Is the product or service a niche market or can most anyone be a customer?  Is there a large demand for the service or product you will be providing?  Is it something people NEED?  Or can they live without it?   Will your business be more seasonal…

What Are the Benefits of Coconut Oil?

Coconut

Coconut oil is a current health trend.  Are there really benefits to using it?  Some popular benefits that coconut oil is noted for are:

 

I have read article after article and became convinced and bought some.  In fact I bought a LOT.  Two big jars to be exact.  What do I use it for?  All of the above as well as baking.  Instead of shortening, I use coconut oil!  After my shower, I rub coconut oil on my skin – it not only moisturizes and softens my skin, but it smells wonderful!

So if you’ve been wondering if this coconut craze is all it’s cracked up to be, I’m here to tell you IT IS!  Get some!

Fall Has Arrived!

Fall-photo
You know, I never can decide what my favorite season is…when it’s autumn then I think that is my favorite season.  But when spring arrives, I think…no, spring is definitely my favorite season!  So today, it’s fall!
Fall has begun and I just love everything about it!  From the colors of the season to the incredible scents and tastes!  I love all things pumpkin, I love the spices that are used to make all things pumpkin…and apple.  I love the crispness in the air and of course being in Upstate New York – the color all around me!
The leaves are already starting to change here and the weather has become cooler.  Yesterday at a family gathering my sister made some kind of pumpkin crisp desert and of course we had some apple crisp and YES fall has arrived!
What is your favorite part of the fall season?  If you live in other parts of the country – or a country outside the US – do you love fall as much?  How do you celebrate it? What do you love about it?
Let me hear from you!

Time to Think About Tablets

Whether you like it or not, Christmas is right around the corner and what does every kid – and adult for that matter want?  A new tablet!!  It may be their first tablet or it may be a replacement for the one that broke, got coffee spilled on it or is just plain old…in tablet years!  So what kind should you get?

ScreenHunter_97 Sep. 19 18.28ScreenHunter_96 Sep. 19 18.27 

Just like when it’s time to get a new phone, it’s time to do some research.  I had an iPhone for the last 4 years and just switched to a Samsung for the first time.  But I didn’t jump into the decision lightly.  So what do you need to look at?

  • Screen size – this is somewhat like “what color car do I want”, right?  It’s somewhat of a superficial item, but size on a tablet does matter!

  • Features – what does it come with?  What can you do with it – and what can you not do with it?  Which features are most important to you or the person you are purchasing the tablet for?

  • Battery life – Face it, we all want a long lasting battery!

  • Memory size – again size matters!  How much memory can you get for your money?  You’ll want as much as possible or you will just end up buying another new one soon because you’ll run out of space!

 

SO, now that we’ve thought about what we want, what’s out there?

For Younger Kids

  • Fire HD Kids Edition – This is a real tablet, built tough for kids and comes with tons of books, movies, apps and games! Only $149!

ScreenHunter_94 Sep. 19 18.27

For Adults, Teens and older kids

  • Fire HD 6 – These come in 5 colors with a 6 inch screen, front and rear camera and more at only $99 for 8GB and $119 for 16GB

  • Fire HD 7 – Similar to the HD 6 but of course with a larger screen $139 for 8GB and $159 for 16GB

  • Fire HDX 8.9 – If you’re really splurging look at this big guy with an 8.9 inch screen starting at $379 for 16GB, all the way up to $479 for 64GB

  • Basic Kindle – If you just want the basics for reading books, and boasting  long battery life, the Kindle will get you there for just $79

 

ScreenHunter_95 Sep. 19 18.27Of course there are so many more – these are some examples and price and memory ranges that can get the ball rolling and help you get started with your purchase decision.

Happy Shopping!
