New Music- had to share

Oh my, I came across this song from a blog I follow. Have your tissues ready if you have a wonderful, loving man whose life is not what he planned it be, but who loves it anyway. I am so grateful for my wonderful husband and the family we have built!

Great site for free Ebooks from Amazon

My Friend Mandy Taylor just shared this site with me. If you don't have a Kindle, like me, you can still downloads books for kindle and read on your computer, iphone, android and several other sites. So don't be afraid to look at ebooks of any type, you can read them on most smart phones and computers now so you don't have to have multiple electronics to travel with.

Thanks Mandy for sharing this site. I love to read, and in my uncluttering process, this will make it simpler to keep up with reading and cleaning off what I no longer need!

Mandy Taylor: If you like free ebooks from Amazon, check this site daily (there are always several freebies posted). I have over 500+ of these freebies on my Kindle!

I am participating in a Blog Hop! Won't you join me. Let's find out about some other Great blogs out in blogger land.

Huge Thanks and new Blog Look

A HUGE Thank you to Jessica over at Inspiring you to Save for her awesome work on the new look of my blog. It is everything I asked her to do. Its warm, friendly, inviting, and I Hope you like it. Swing over to Jessica's page for some great ideas. I couldn't be happier with her pricing, her options, her response, and how quickly she did it!!!

Let me know what you think of the new look of my blog. I hope you like it as much as I do!!! Send your friends to follow me. Great deals and Ideas coming down the line!!

The Best Time to Buy Everything

I came across this post recently. This was exactly what I was looking for because hubby and I spent a lot of time deciding what to get me for my birthday this year. We were going to get an iphone, but I am not eligible for upgrade until Feb, and I just can not justify paying $200 more right now when I know I can get it for $99 in Feb even though hubby was more than willing to do that. So then we search for desktop computers because ours died several months ago. I would truly LOVE to have an All in One desktop to save desktop clutter and space but at $500 minimum we just didn't feel we could justify that at the moment either. In looking at the desktops at Best Buy, we looked at the 3D TVs and since the Samsung Rep was in store, we learned a lot about the different options available on them. It was very cool to see the demo of these TVs and I was glad to know that you didn't HAVE to watch it in 3D All the time, it will play regular TV as well, and the glasses are more high-tech than the flat colored lens paper glasses. We were sticker shocked at the pricing at $1500 to $2000, but when you factor in that they are now Wifi- internet TVs, along with the 3D, come in plasma, LCD or LED and are 36in Plus in size, it didn't seem so bad. AND then we thought back to our first big purchase when we got married, when we bought our rear projection TV for $1500 8 years ago, and boy how technology has changed lol.

Well we ended up getting a blu-ray player. We don't have anything in our bedroom to watch movies on, no DVD, VHS etc just our cable on the TV. Again I don't see the need to go out purchasing all new blu-ray disks to replace my DVD collection, so was glad to know it will play DVDs as well as blu-rays, also has built in WIFI and can stream our facebook and more importantly our NETFLIX, I decided it was a good purchase, and at only $150 at walmart, was well within our budget. Hubby bought me Robin Hood Prince of Thieves one of my favorite old classic movies since I didn't even have it on DVD and we had a nice birthday weekend, including a splurge meal at the Olive Garden with the wonderful never ending pasta bowl, and dolcini desserts- I highly recommend the Amaretto Tiramisu and the Lemoncello desserts. YUMMY!

Anyway- the blog post below that I came across was in regards to figuring out when would be a good time to purchase a new computer or other items. So I hope it is helpful to you as well.

Tot Tuesday: Learning to Sew...Where To Start?

Tot Tuesday: Learning to Sew...Where To Start?

I recently stumbled across this blog by following this blog:

I have enjoyed the articles I have found in both sites from couponing, to great deals, to being frugal, to crafting and kids.

If you are new to sewing or thinking about sewing, be sure to read the Learning to Sew article. It mentions several sites that I like and ways I have used to learn or update myself on certain techniques- such as youtube. I hope you get as much out of these sites as I do.
