Is Renting Games Online Worth The Cost?

under Product Review

Thus far in my life, I've been pretty lucky that my two great passions have aligned so perfectly. I'm referring, of course, to:

A) playing video games a lot and

B) laying on my sofa.

However, there is one area wherein these clash dramatically: actually going to get new video games. The experience is generally horrible. You have to contend with crowds, little kids, parking and disinterested employees. If you order online, returning crappy games is a hassle at best and impossible at worst. Read More »

Yasar is taking bets that this is going to be dirty. Or he's urging me on. I can't be sure. As much as I usually like to go for the shock and awe, this will not be a blog about adult tech toys for Valentine's Day. Sorry, no personal touch massager moments here. Instead, I'll focus on cool, possibly cheesy, tech gifts for Valentine's Day that may be perfect for the one you love or the one you just sorta like a whole lot this year. Read More »

Love is in the air! Can you feel it? Are you scared?...

Whether you believe Valentine's Day is the perfect occasion to show that special someone how you really feel or whether you feel it's a day foisted upon us by a commercial conspiracy, one thing will always be dangerously true: you gotta give to get. I'm just sayin'! Don't shoot the messenger...

Luckily, this week's Featured Store can buy you some time with a little personalization in the way of shiny objects for boys and girls of all ages. Limoges Jewelry to the rescue! Read More »

Radiant skin is a sign of good health and wellness. But in the winter, with all the heaters, wind, and time indoors, it can be hard to come by.  Cold weather blahs can dull even the sunniest smile.  Wanna get that glow?  Here are a few tips for radiant skin.  There are ideas for healthy living, naturally, but also also a few cosmetics to fudge that look on the fly.

Save Big on Printer Ink

under Money Saving Tips

As an avid couponer, I print a lot of coupons online.  It's a great way to save, but also requires a LOT of printer ink.  I knew that the value of a small $.50 printable coupon could not equate to the cost of the volumes of ink I would go through to print my potential savings.  Until I researched a fabulous way to save by purchasing re-manufactured printer cartridges. 

Many sites, including, offers FREE Shipping with a minimum purchase.  So I typically order all of our ink online in bulk.  By using available coupon codes, along with shopping through a cash back site, I can get an awesome deal!  The last time I did this I shared how I purchased $120 in ink for just $35 after the online sales and cash back! 

I have been shopping online purchasing our printer ink this way for years now. Read More »

Last week, a group of us headed to Nashville to attend Blissdom, a blogging conference for "women who find and express their bliss by publishing online." Although the weather was cold (REALLY cold for us weather wimpy Angelenos!) and damp, we remained safe and dry in the cavernous "biodome" setting of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel.

Check out some of the highlights of the conference: Read More »

Happy Frugal Valentine's Day

You know the slogan, "Every kiss begins with Kay"?  We're all for jewelry here at Savings, but if getting or giving a kiss in your relationship depends on expensive jewelry, well, there's something wrong.  When you boil it down, nothing should be more romantic than just hanging out together, so while showering someone in gifts can be great, it shouldn't really have to be necessary.

Another sweet automotive deal...15 years later

under Money Saving Tips

So besides my usual "miser" like tendencies, I have been lucky to score a good deal on my last auto purchase (over 15 years ago).

And no, this new car isn't even for me (I'm still driving around in my 1994 Honda Civic EX Coupe), it's for my wife, LOL.  Anyway, chalk this up to a little research and knowing the right people.

We went shopping for cars for a few months and ended up with a great new Mini Cooper (it's actually on order now, but you can see how sweet it's gonna look).

The bottom line here is definitely consult some online shopping tips on buying new cars.  I used the information I learned online to get about $800 off MSRP (on a Mini, that's great).  I also found out I had a friend who's dad ran a local Mini dealership, so that saved us another $500. Read More »

Wacky Product of the Week - 1983 Revisited

under Product Review

If you don't remember the 80's then either your brain ids fried or you're that young and I am really THAT old. I'm talking shell-top Adidas, Members Only jackets, Rubik's Cube, and the debate over whether to buy a Commodore or Atari game console. The biggest games of the decade were--hands down--Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Galaga and Asteroids.

It was only a matter of time before some retro enthusiast (read: old geek like me) decided to marry the love of past games with functioning practicality. I give you, the Heat Changing Arcade Mugs. Read More »
