Creative Gift Idea

It is already a custom in my family the gift giving on Christmas Eve. We don't have baby in our family , everyone has grown and the idea of gifts to give has changed. Nowadays people pretty much look at electronics for gift. I give gifts by theme or some practical ideas, like very useful to the person I give it to. I know some people in my family like the custom gifts so I thought of giving a custom coin for Christmas. Tinay specially like coins so I believe she will treasure this. Last year I gave her a custom towel and she really liked it, then her birthday I gave her custom printed hoodies of her favorite team at school with her name on it. I am sure putting her name and special notes in the coin will make her feel special and I am sure she will add it to her coin collection. Read More......

Technology Made Shopping Easy

Christmas is coming soon and a lot of people doing the Christmas shopping rush to give for Christmas as gifts. Last Black Friday sale I saw lots of people do there Christmas shopping and with all that traffic and sales everything went smoothly because everything was done electronically at the checkout counter. There were lots of sales representatives that assisted as you enter the store. The same in grocery stores, almost everywhere you can see Honeywell Barcode Scanner systems being used. If without these technologies, there will be a lot of people in line to pay at the counter. Some grocery stores and hardware stores use the barcode system for automatic check out where you just scan the barcode area as you check out and it will automatically recognize the item you bought and prized. I really like to use this every time specially when I only have few items to check, it makes shopping easier and faster without having to stand in line for long. Read More......

Black Friday Sale Preparation

We all know that Black Friday Sale is the biggest slash down sale of the year. I get excited when I see savings and discounts. Tomorrow is checking where we going to go shopping. I never go out real early but I do go out that day to shop. Like last year my girlfriend gave me Luminox navy seal watches as part of my collection. She knows I like watches and that day she got it real low price. We like to check on shoes and clothing. It is a great way to spend time together too and do something we both like. The only thing is, making sure we stay on our budget, no sense buying things when you have no money for it. Most great prices are best when you show up real early, but I am not a morning person, I probably don't know my direction if I go shop that early. Usually we go around eight or nine in the morning after having a cup of coffee or breakfast. No sense going shopping on an empty stomach. Read More......

Saving Time Having The Right Tools

My mom just got back from the Philippines in time for the Thanksgiving day celebration. She went to Cebu City Philippines to do some business regarding real estate. Some documentation needs copies of certain papers that is still here in the States. I am glad I have document imaging software and made the transaction smooth and hassle free. Everything turn out fine and accepted without problem. It is an advantage to have and very handy when time like such. If I know my mom, she easily discourage on little things if it don't turn out fine on first try. She has been realy down lately with the loss of my Dad so this really helped and save some trouble. She knows little about technical stuff so she don't really know how simple task could sometimes be problematic if not done right or if do not have the right tools or software. It is very hard to explain technical things if she does not know much abaout it. Ohh well, all I know is simple software like this really saves time and headache. Read More......

Early Start Making Money

For me, all babies are cute and cuddly. I am almost always tempted to pinch or touch a baby's face because they are simply irresistible and so adorable. I have seen babies on commercial advertisements and I really believe these are cool but it make me wonder how does some of these babies feel or when they grow up and look back baby modeling years. It must be cool if you come to think of it , like the gerber baby, wonder how old she or he really is now and able to look back how her photo become the official gerber logo? Or is there such Gerber baby? How do parents get to sign up to have their babies become models? I am all for money making and earning so I guess this is a great idea for some parents that want to get their babies started on the spotlight of cameras. Of course, the cute smile, chubby cheeks and smooth healthy baby skin is what most people look for when we think babies. I guess it also depends for what scene and products they needed the baby's image for. Read More......

Online Convenience

I heard of online dating , online shopping , online networking , online banking and a lot of online convenience and now online card . It in not like e-card which is delivered through email. It is still traditional cards that you can design or customize and preview to suit your style. I really believe that birthday party invitations from invitationbox.com are cool because they have thousands of designs to choose from. Instead of going to a store and wait until you get a sales person to help you and look through their catalogs, why not do it online at the convenience of your own home without having to wait for someone to help you. Although this is an online card printing, they do have customer service that can assist you for more inquiry. I really like the idea of customizing my cards so next time, I am definitely going to try this service. Read More......

Garage Sale Pickers

I have watched shows on television about people making money on second hand items, or bidding furniture in a real estate sale. I really think there is money on other peoples junk specially if you have the artistic mind or creative ideas, you can pretty much transform an old bed frame and refinish it to give it a new face or rustic lamps can turn into something that look antique with little sanding and varnishing. I am fund of fixing stuffs so this ideas really interests me. So during summer, yard sale and garage sale is a frequent weekend task and then go to farmers market after. I have also sold some of our items that is not usable anymore or grown out clothes or even electronics that we just recently upgraded. Next time you have nothing to do for a summer weekend, try going yard sale. Read More......

Creativeness for Halloween

Halloween is one of kids favorite speacial yearly event. I know most kids really look forward to this date. I have noticed some organizations specially church groups tried to change the way people celebrate Halloween. Instead of scary monsters or meassy zombies or vampires , this group try to wear like angels and biblical characters. In some office groups also celebrate Halloween by wearing super heroes or Hollywood charcaters. My friends office try to ceberate by wearing healthcare uniforms She would try and buy hers online at http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/categories/Scrubs/Scrubs-for-Men/.

I really enjoy watching some halloween decorations in the neighborhood. I may not be a zombie or scary movie fanatic but people do get really creative with decorations. I saw some people uses bale of hay to create a maze or boxes to make it look like coffins in front of their house. Cob web really made it look like the house is abandoned and here my neighbor actually have some sound effects. Black cat would be part of the sight, or witches. One time this witch decoration made it look like it slammed on the wall. It really looked funny. My coworker had a broom with sign on it that says "the witches at work". It is really fun and intertaining!

The pumpkin carving. Yes! it won't be complete without the pumpins. Carving pumpkins is not an easy thing to do nor it is safe. I would not recommend little kids to do this without adult supervision. As fun as it seems but dealing with sharp knives and blades is dangerous and not safe at all. So make sure to keep an eye of your children when doing this. Some people do not even carve the pumpkins, they just create something aout of it to make an object or something, like a man with pumpin head. This way, you can really be creative.

Easy Self Learning Online

Online classes are getting popularity now because it is convenient specially to some people who learns fast just by reading or following instructions. Self learning is not for everyone but there are some classes and lessons that are better learned alone on your own pace. Like guitar lessons, I have done this and managed to learn simple songs. Like learning second language where they let you watch video and repeat after each word. Even our agency has an online class to keep up with updates and yearly educational requirement to keep up with our licenses. Read More......

"Fixer-Upper" Deals

There have been several disadvantages about buying a clunker or should I say a fixer-upper items but you can make money on them too if you are like me who likes to touch up things and fix stuffs, then you know what I am talking about. There are lots of ways to make money fixing things. Like last summer I bought a used ATV for three hundred but the owner said some problem starting it. I went ahead and bought the needed parts after few hours of troubleshooting to an ATV Parts Store. I feel so great after spending less than two hundred on parts and it run like a charm. I sold it after few months of use and make money out of it. I have done this few times now also with boats and furniture items. I guess someone with plenty of time can really make more money doing this. Read More......

Medical Advancement

My dad fought lung cancer for more than a year. He has so much faith to prayers, miracles and also he thinks medicine has advance so much it can cure almost any disease. That was my dad, being from the Philippines compared to U.S. , it really has great advancement here in States. Ever thought of hormones? I wonder how hormone contribute to our disease process. Hormone replacement therapynow been offered to some hospitals as part of disease prevention. I have great belief that prevention is better than cure. Health insurance should encourage this and cover the therapy. Wonder how much they would save preventing a disease than going through paying every single treatment of major diseases. I am not saying that this is a cure to all health problem but some. Read More......

Online Profile Safety Tips

There are lots of friend networking and other social networks but how safe it really is? Facebook specially being as popular as it is, there are lots of flaws with their privacy settings. Last month when they have maintenance and done lots of updates, it also made few changes on my profile privacy settings. Some of you who have profiles on some free dating sites, it is best and I would recommend to check your profile from a friends account or from a different browser or search yourself from different browser aside from the browser you use to log in your account. It is best that you check how your profile is viewed from outside the network. Facebook actually have this feature but still try to search your name in google when you are logged out of that network.

Save Money Using Coupons

My one and only niece had been after me for days after I missed her birthday and not just that, I still haven't send her a present. I have to admit I have been busy lately and finding a trendy clothing for teens are real time consuming. I went ahead and look for what are great buys and great value without sacrificing the quality. If I know my niece, she likes to follow trends. One of my friends had a great idea of using coupons to cut down the cost for some expensive brands. So after searching I found a wet seal coupons at dropdowndeals. I can't believe how convenient now to find coupons and finding great deal online. I am sure my niece will love the selections and colors. How can I go wrong buying a high end product at a cut down price? Read More......

Braving back to school shopping for my kids

Guest post written by Kendra Laws

One of the things that I love about online shopping si that you can just sit at home and don't have to deal with rowdy shoppers. Well, when you have growing kids that are in only God knows what size jean now, you can't really get away with doing some quick online shopping. So I decided that I would do some back to school shopping in person with my kids to get the job done quicker and easier.

While I was online checking out some deals before I took my kids out to go clothes shopping, i ran across the site www.WIRELESSINTERNETproviders.net. After I looked through it a little bit, I decided to change over our home internet service to one of the plans I found on there.

Well, it wasn't as bad as I expected. I guess I was expecting Black Friday level crowds. However, I guess that I have all of those crowds online shopping on my side. I was able to find my kids some jeans that actually fit them and I think that they're well set for the school year. Read More......

Helping Hands

Early morning today my phone rung, that made me wake up from a deep sleep. It was a call from my best friend who live in Austin,Texas. It's been a month we didn't have much chat since she moved from Canada to Texas. She's whining about what happen to her newly installed cream white carpet.

She had a house blessing party two days ago, because she's too busy minding and getting to know her neighbors. She did not noticed that one of her guest, spilled red wine on the carpet. She's asking if I could help her to find some company that offers a carpet services. Since she just moved only a month ago, she's not yet familiar with her environment. So I decided to contact my Aunt Leny, who lived in Austin too. She gave me this site http://www.thesteamteam.com/
. They've been in years of services for maintaining and cleaning carpet around the Austin and Dallas,Texas. They also offered not just cleaning services for air ducting, tile and upholstery but also carpet repairing austin. She really recommended dry rug cleaning austin because she's been a regular customer and very satisfied with their services. She told me that my best friend will never regret on choosing this company. Later that day, my best friend called me again that she already contacted and made an appointment. Read More......

Scrubs for Comfort and Budget

For years working in medical field, I know the need of scrub top and pants. For awhile I've been making my own to save money and try to be creative. I do not like to have duplicate so I prefer making my own for several years. But the cost of materials and the length of time to make them is almost not worth making your own scrubs. So I decided to search online for price which I can afford. So I googled my way through and found http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/categories/Scrubs/Scrubs-for-Women/Original-Scrubs/ to be very reasonably priced. I cannot believe how much selections and variety of brands to choose from. I am very fond of Cherokee nursing uniforms if I do decide to buy one.

It is not just for scrub tops or pants but also lots of accessories to match what you wear and mood of course. It is part of the fun to be creative with what you wear. Never forget to check the clearance scrubs and sale items to save more money. Besides who don't want to save money and still able to get custom and quality scrubs. Read More......

Tightened U.S. Customs Delayed Incoming International Packages Affecting Ebay

I am not too happy to know this changes although I know this change is for security purposes. This tightened U.S. customs turned off Ebay customers from buying products outside the country. It used to that I receive my items within 10 to 14 days but now it has reached more than a month. I thought it was due to the Holiday rush but when I checked one of the tracking links from one of my favorite sellers reply, I saw the notice regarding the tightened customs stating :

Important Notice: Got notice from the US customs that all packets (from all countries) to US will be subject to stricter screening. Postage time to the US will be about 3-7days delayed due to tightened customs control and screening. 
 As for me, buying generic products in Hong Kong really saves
 money. Of course the Ebay sellers are not going to tell people how much delay it would take , the notice says 3-7 days but based on my 3 orders already I had 3-4 weeks delay........ it would definitely change the way I would search product from now on. Read More......

I actually learned few tricks on sharing paid apps from one iphone to ipod or to my girlfriend who is in Canada . This I will be sharing the info in my future posts. Hope everyone had a great Holidays.. Read More......
