Coupon Clipping – The Smartphone Way

There’s a new secret to saving money without clipping coupons. Your Smartphone will replace scissors and coupons. Not only will you save on groceries but on almost everything you buy. What is the secret to saving money on groceries, electronics or manicures?
The secret is using apps, the apps are for Android and iPhones. They are:

For example  Shopkick,  makes shopping and saving a game. Using GPS, it shows nearby stores with exclusive deals. Users get points just by walking in, checking into a specific section, or even scanning particular products. If you get enough points, you can get a gift card.

With the Coupon Sherpa app, we loaded almost a dozen digital coupons from the app onto our Kroger card in a matter of seconds.
Check into each of the apps and please come back and let us know how much you saved!

Tweeting Seat - What is it?


A tweeting seat or bench

the person who came up with this idea describes it as :

"TweetingSeat is an interactive park bench which is designed to explore the potential for connecting digital and physical communities. The bench logs its usage by uploading images of its users and environment to a live Twitter feed, allowing people to interact with it both in person and virtually."

Beautiful Citrus Centerpiece

Great for Holiday dinners!

Fruitfully Fabulous

Warm up your holiday table with a scentsational centerpiece -
 dress pillar candles with dried oranges, lemons, and limes.
Thinly slice the citrus fruits about 1/8-inch thick. Place a wire cooling rack 
on a cookie sheet, and then arrange the sliced oranges, lemons, and limes 
on the rack. Put the cookie sheet and rack in an oven preheated 
to 250 degrees for approximately two hours, or until all 
moisture is removed.
Tip: If you find that your slices have not dried in 2 hours, you can also 
turn off the oven and leave the fruit in overnight.
Using a glue gun, connect the citrus slices to each other, forming a 
band around the base of each candle. Do not glue them to the candle.
 Once your candles are decorated, cluster them in the center of your 
Thanksgiving table and weave berried branches throughout to create 
a cohesive centerpiece.
Thanks to GoodHousekeeping  magazine for this beautiful idea!
