Exit Signs
Posted on 12.25.13 by thisweekon @

It just never fails that no matter how many times you have been in a mall or a movie theater… you need to find those exit signs. I think it is the worst after you see a movie in a theater. It is dark and you are disoriented and you just do not know whether to go left or right and you just don’t know where you are. Thank goodness for those lite up signs that will lead you in the right direction otherwise you would be stuck walking around in circles or something. It is nice to know where the exits are too… before you go into a place.

Themed Favors
Posted on 12.12.12 by thisweekon @

There are certain wedding favors that are just always winners. Chocolate is always a great favor…everyone likes chocolate and if you get good ones that is even better. Another one of my wedding favors are the glass coasters. My sister had some at her wedding and there were five of us so we got to take home 5 which was really cool because we got a whole set. And you could put your own pictures in it was is even better. There are so many great ideas out there and you can even choose things that are with your specific color or theme.

Church Furniture
Posted on 05.17.12 by thisweekon @

When it comes to churches today – many of them are in dire need of financial help. But not only that they are very old and a lot of the stuff that they have is in desperate need for repair or replacement like their Church furniture. The benches are all worn and some are even falling apart. I used to play the organ at a church that was always asking the very few people that would attend for more money. The thing with that was that the people that were actually attending give all the time and they have no more extra to give. Which is why you have to have someone that knows how to manage the budget.

Dutch Masters
Posted on 09.11.10 by thisweekon @

My uncle is very difficult to buy things for but what he does like is cigars and you can get the best cigars right online like Dutch Masters. I am not one to smoke cigars but he likes to and he will no matter what so why not get him a great gift that I know he will really enjoy and use. He actually use to only smoke them on special occations but now it is a daily thing so I just get him his favorite brand online and have them sent to him – pretty simple shopping now actually.

Green Shopping
Posted on 08.31.10 by thisweekon @

Now is it the time to start thinking about what you are buying and time to start doing a little green shopping. If you have children then you want to be sure that they grow up in a place and world that is going to be safe and that you can be proud you were a part of to help make it the best it can possibly be. And many things these days are green compliant so it is easy to shop green. You may want to start by changing to tote bags rather than plastic bags when you food shop.

Personalized Gifts
Posted on 08.11.10 by thisweekon @

When it comes to getting gifts for people…it can be really hard trying to find that great gift for someone that seems to have everything. In my opinion, personalized gifts are the way to go for so many different special occations. They are perfect for weddings, baby showers, anniversarys and graduations. If you are going to a party or event that is a major life changing event then a personalized gift would be nice because it is a great reminder of the day and of the occation. And people are more likely to use and to keep things that are personalized too.

Online Coupons
Posted on 06.23.10 by thisweekon @

I will not shop anywhere unless I find those online coupons that are gonig to help me save me or save on shipping. That is the beauty of shopping online..being able to find those savings and coupons before you actually make that purchase. There are so many great sites out there too where you can find sites that will have exactly what you are looking for and that will help reduce the cost of your purchase!

Slingbox
Posted on 06.19.10 by thisweekon @

There are some sites that you can get just about everything at….being about to get a Slingbox and then on the same site get a TV and a nice outfit is just cool. I was just thinking about how even just 15 years ago this was not even a possibility. I didn’t even have a computer and Internet was just started to get out there. I remember thinking that I didn’t really want a computer and that I didn’t need a computer…..boy, was I ever wrong!

La Flor Dominicana
Posted on 05.15.10 by thisweekon @

Sometime you just want to get something for someone that you know they will like even thought you really shouldn’t. My grandfather loves cigars and the good stuff like la flor dominicana. Now, I know that it is horrible for him but I also know that in this point in his life he doesn’t care and he is not going to quit. So, I occasionally for a gift will get him something like this because I never know what to get him and I know that he will really like a box of good cigars.

Best Buy
Posted on 04.10.10 by thisweekon @

I think that most people are looking for that Best Buy when they are buying things. I am always looking for a great deal and when you are shopping on the internet it is so much easier to find those great deals rather than going into the stores. And Mothers Day is coming up…right around the corner. Now is the time to start thinking about a really nice gift for your Mom. I know my Mom just does so much for me…and most children do tend to just take our parents for granted. Here is the one day you can show your appreciation.

Best-Lock 240pc Fire Engine
Posted on 02.15.10 by thisweekon @

51kswatyp4l__sl500_aa280_.jpg These legos are just not legos….the Best-Lock 240pc Fire Engine is a toy that you can pass by because it is just not all that great. I should have listened to the reviews of this item before I got it for my nephew that just loves these sorts of things and fire engines. It is not worth the money – try something else!

Starbucks
Posted on 01.15.10 by thisweekon @

America loves Starbucks. People love the whole experience of it. I am not a Starbucks fan, because the coffee is just too strong, and too expensive.
Starbucks is making a change however. They will be changing the name of one of it’s Seattle stores. The new name will simply be 15th Avenue Coffee & Tea, named after their location. They will then open two new stores in the area with a new logo and name as well.
Here is the surprising part, beer and wine will be included on the menu. I don’t know if this is going to work, but I am not a master mind of big finances. I wonder if they will sell these alcoholic beverages after a certain time of the day. I wonder if there are even any regulations. At any rate, coffee in the morning, wine in the evening, for me.

The Perfect Bridal Shower Favors
Posted on 09.24.09 by thisweekon @

simplyweddingstuff_2068_71188884.gif

When it comes to bridal shower favors you want to make sure that they are cute. And there are so many really cute ones out there if you know where to look. And you can pull off a really nice bridal shower that looks nice and is a lot of fun even if you are on that strict budget. You do not have to overspend…you just have to know the sites to go to when it comes time to planning and ordering all of those things. I personally love it when there are games at the showers. My showers never had any games because the people that were invited were not gamey people. But I have been to ones that are very fun!

Wine of the Month Club
Posted on 11.20.08 by thisweekon @

The wine of the month club is by far one of the best gifts you can give to that someone special in your life. My father in law just has everything so why not get him something that he really enjoys and not so much needs. And there are many packages and levels you can get. But he gives so much to us and my mother in law just helps out when ever we need help…like a baby sitter that we get the top package. My sister in law beat us to this gift last year but we claimed it for this year πŸ™‚

Holiday Contest!
Posted on 10.30.08 by thisweekon @

So I do not know about you…but I just love contests! Especially this time of year…and we all probably need the money because I have a feeling the gift giving holiday season this year is going to be limited drastically. So, this is a contest that you do not want to just let it pass by. More money could just mean more gifts you can give! And I don’t know about you but I just love to give gifts this time of year…any time of year but especially this time of year. As you have to do is sign up and write about your most embarassing or funny shopping confession or even submit a video about it. You have nothing to lose but the chance at getting that extra cash or prize! You could pay off a bill or 2 with it as well….maybe you can fill your oil tank for a month or 2 with it as well! I personally would use it for my holiday shopping though πŸ™‚ Online shopping is just so much fun especially when you have money! And you can use me as your referral! The prizes are just amazing…over $33,000 in prizes!!!

The Best Buy
Posted on 08.03.08 by thisweekon @

Ever since being first introduced to Buy.com I have really enjoyed their site and I have yet to have a problem with any of the products or the customer service. And you really can find that best buy at this site. They have so many items to choose from too everything from books..which I love to electronic…where I bought my portable dvd player and it is still running great!

Social Shopping
Posted on 06.18.08 by thisweekon @

Have you ever heard of BuyBooBuy. This is a social shopping network. Basically this is a site where you can share your experiences shopping with your friends and even make some new friends that like to shop in the process. You can post the itemts that you want to buy even and then your friends can vote for them. You can either vote for a buy or BooBuy. The BooBuy means that it is a not buy. And then be sure to vote on your friends items as well. I love shopping online – I just find that it is so much more convenient than to have to go to that store and have to deal with the crowds.

And this way you are able to see what is good out there too…what other people think are the hot items tahat you should be buying as opposed to the other items that may not be as popular. I personally think something maybe a great buy while others think it is a boobuy…to each their own when it comes to personal shopping taste πŸ™‚

ShopWiki….Google For The Shopper
Posted on 05.11.08 by thisweekon @

I just love to shop online…I find it to be very convenient and I can most always find exactly what I am looking for and more! ShopWiki is a great site…you can find everything for sale on the web at this site. Everything from clothing to home and garden items. Sometimes the Internet can be quite overwhelming when you go to look for something and this site is like Google for that shopper.

This site is very user friendly and you will have no problems finding exactly what it is that you want and it is very well organized so you will have no problem navigating through it. Everything from blenders to bird baths! And with 245,398,189 products from every store you just can not go wrong. I have been using this site ever since I came across it a few months ago. And it is better than Google because it will lead you to the sites that actually sell the products so you don’t have to waist time sifting through sites that don’t even have the product or anything to do the product you are looking for. Check out this site if you like to shop!!

Savings
Posted on 05.02.08 by thisweekon @

Who does not like to have great savings when they are shopping and savings.com is a great place to find exactly what you are looking for because they are the leading online coupon site. They have great coupon codes, promo codes, discounts and free coupons as well as free shipping coupons. I personally love getting the free shipping coupons with the shipping rates being just so high these days it seems.

This site is very user friendly as well so you will have no problems finding exactly that coupon that you need everything form Ipods, Dell to Orbitz and Travelocity. I am always looking for a bargain. I actually will not shop online unless I have that great coupon and so many people shop online and do not take advantage of these discounts which is too bad because you can really save quite a bit most of the time.

Savings.com is a great place to find those savings. So next time you are going to buy something online check out that site to see if they have that promo code that you can use!

Gift Basket
Posted on 04.26.08 by thisweekon @

Personally, I just think that a gift basket makes for a great gift for any occasion. It is a nice way to say think you or sorry or just hey, have a nice day. And you can get them for holidays and birthdays as well. My favorite is the just because I was thinking about you gift basket. Everyone loves to get things like this and delivered. It is nice and a really nice gift basket really can and does brighten up a persons day.

LCD Monitor
Posted on 03.07.08 by thisweekon @

I just love my lcd monitor. My husband actually convinced me to get one for the room that I am always in. And I kept on saying no and that my medium sized clumpy tube tv was just fine and I liked it. But when he got me this monitor I just do not know how I lived with out it for so long because I just loved it. The picture is great and he got a bigger screen than I had too so it is wonderful. A great monitor makes what you are watching or looking at so much better!
