Oops. We cut up a credit card that had a recurring charge. Good thing we hadn't cancelled the card altogether. So we cancelled this quarterly charge, which was for access to a site with information about various companies. Now we're paying off the card again in full. This will help us saving cash!
So I did some online shopping today. Bought 4 or 5 different gifts. Pondered buying a bunch of other ones, but decided that the price wasn't right. Searched for discounts on www.RetailMeNot.com and shopped through www.ebates.com when possible. Still have a lot of shopping to go.
So to that end, here are a few links for you to peruse. By the way, these are not links for money, just ones I like, which is how I do it. The links on the right are also ones I simply enjoy.
- From the Washington Post today, December 7, 2008 – The Color of Money - http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/12/06/AR2008120600133.html?sub=AR This is a listing of a year's worth of book club advice – with a theme of personal finance. Books range from suggestions for kids ages 8-12, to a collection of essays about issues such as debt, poverty, and wealth, and more. One or two of these might be good gift for someone you know, like your spouse.
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVyNnyLbcXM This was rated one of the "10 Silliest Videos We Wasted Time Watching This Year" in the Washington Post today. Watch this if you need to laugh, are a Star Wars Fan, have a three-year old, or any combination. My life revolves around Star Wars, so I found it quite entertaining.
- Especially for Kelly - www.cdwkids.com – Kids clothes – nice stuff, a bit pricey, but has a section for clothes made in the USA (a friend is not buying anything from China and I thought I'd help her out with a link)
- http://www.vivaterra.com – I really want one of their Flip Flop Mats. They also have a lot of other very cool stuff.
I have some other fun sites I want to share with you all, but I'll need to do that tomorrow.
