Electronics for less on-line. Try New Egg!

If your in the market for something electronic and can wait 3 business days for your purchase.  Take a look at New Egg. We just bought a printer through New Egg.  They are 99% the lowest cost on-line.  And their shipping is very reasonable! On our printer for 3 day UPS it was $2.99.  My husband uses them all the time for his IT work and according to him they have excellent customer service.

Because there are some things I am thinking about changing on my blog, but I wanted to get some input back.  What would you like to see more of, less of, content, format, and ways that you get updated.  I wish I had a fabulous freebie to give away.  If I use your idea I can put you on an I owe you list and see if there is something I can work out with you.

Finish $3 Coupon


This product is new and seems like it will be really cool.  And a high value coupon to boot. Not on sale at any stores in the Cobb County area that I know of. 
Remember with Printables most will let you print 2 per an IP address.  Do not make Copies! This is coupon fraud. You are robbing your store when you do this. 

Happy 10th Birthday Shutterfly


Happy Birthday 10th Birthday Shutterfly! 

Shutterfly is offering a coupon code for $10.  The code is MARCH10.  The kicker is that this expires pretty quickly March 11th.  There is still free Shipping on orders over $30. And if you are an Ebates user that there is a 10% discount to your order.
