When I was younger, I remember there was a cool store at many malls called Sharper Image. They carried all sorts of nifty gadgets. Now these products were of course not things that people absolutely need, but once you say them, boy did it make you want to buy them!
I don’t know what’s become of Sharper Image. I have not seen one in a while. Maybe it has to do with where I live. Nonetheless, I found a similar cool store recently called Brookstone. They have an online presence and you can get a Brookstone coupon to save money on whatever you buy.
So go ahead and check out this neat site. But be warned, you might end up spending money on something you never knew you wanted!
Quitting smoking can be an exceedingly difficult thing to do. But in recent years, there is an alternative to quitting. You may have heard about it. They’re called e-cigarettes, or e-cigs, which is short for electronic cigarettes. Battery operated and using cartridges, these devices look like regular cigarettes but work with vapors. Many people believe they are safer than traditional cigarettes, so it’s a good middle ground for people worried about their health but not ready to give up the habit completely.
They almost look like regular cigarettes to me.
I want to try some of these cigarettes using a V2 Cigs Coupon available from the coupon site, http://e-cigsmokers.com. I’m not yet decided on which brand to choose, but I’m definitely leaning toward V2 cigs since I think they look the best, and they are also cheaper than other brands. I’m not sure if I dig the red color (see image on the right), but other than that, V2 cigs look like regular cigarettes to me.
For unbiased information about e-cigarettes, go to my favorite site – Wikipedia.
Pretty soon, we’ll be reaching a point where most people will be watching TV shows on anything other than a real TV. Nowadays, you can watch episodes on your computer, iphone, tablet PC or a myriad other devices. Even when watching a program on a TV set, it’s become popular to stream shows from sites such as Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon.
For a long time, the first word I thought of when I heard the word Netflix was “movies.” But lately, I’ve been logging on most of the time not to watch movies, but TV shows. For example, I’ve been watching Weeds full episodes along with other great shows like Lost. It’s a great place to catch shows that used to be popular not too long ago. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to catch the very latest episodes. Usually, you need to wait a while for them to be posted. You can read more about how it all works at this site: http://fullepisodesguide.com.
The other day, someone asked me what Weeds is… In case you’re in the same boat, here is a trailer for you:
I’ve used professional carpet cleaning services in the past, and let me tell you, they sure do charge a pretty penny. I don’t think I’ve ever paid less than $300 to have my carpets cleaned. But here’s the part that gets my blood boiling – A lot of times these “pros” don’t even do a good job! This got me thinking that maybe I could try to clean the carpets myself. I knew I should be able to do just as good a job, and I would save $300 to boot.
At my local Albertson’s I always see these machines called the Rug Doctor, so I figured I’d give them a try. The good news is that the machine is pretty simple to use. You basically just turn it on, then drag it across the carpet to clean it. The 64 million dollar question is, or course, does it work?
The answer is yes and no. For a machine that you can rent for 30 bucks for a 24 hour period, it does do a decent job. But it’s probably not up to the standards of the better professional cleaners. So my two cents is, if you have a professional cleaning service you already like, you might want to stick with them. But if your cleaning service does not do a good job, and you don’t feel like going through the hassle of finding a decent service, then you can just do it yourself with these Rug Doctor machines.
You can rent them like I did, or if you’re sure you’ll be using them a lot, you can even buy your own machine. There are Rug doctor coupons online that you can use to save some money, so I would try to use a couple of them if you are going that route. As for getting other information about coupons, I would recommend paying a visit to about.com and couponanything.com.
Okay, so I’m not REALLY better than you – but I thought that would be a funny name for a blog. Who am I? My name is Tom and I live in Northern California. I enjoy playing tennis, hiking, and going on road trips to Yosemite. In my free time, I do a lot of surfing on the Internet – probably a lot more than I should be doing!
Among the things I research online are ways to save money. Yes, I am cheap. In this blog I will share any tips I have and show you the cool sites that I find in case you are frugal like me.
