Regretsy’s Crafter School Special: Make Your Own Snooki Mask


When asked me to create a weekly DIY tutorial for their readers, I was overwhelmed. I was also drunk, which is why I said yes.

But I think you’ll agree that I’m a natural for a job like this, because I have almost no crafting ability. And if there’s one thing the handmade movement has taught us, it’s that you don’t actually need talent to craft, and everyone has to pretend to like it anyway.

And speaking of no talent, how great is Jersey Shore? Really great, that’s how. And if all those kids did was smoke cigarettes and vomit on themselves, it would be enough for me. But God love them, they’ve got so much more on the ball. Did you know that three of them are already published authors? And Snooki’s book is on the New York Times Bestseller List! It all seems so effortless for them. Probably because they didn’t actually write anything.

Wouldn’t we all want a taste of that life? You bet we would. And today, I’m going to show you how to see the world through Snooki’s eyes. Soon you’ll be living the dream, one happy hour at at time.

The Tech-pert: MagicJack and Other Options for Cheaper Smartphone Calling Plans


I’ve often said it’s not the price of smartphones that bothers me, it’s the monthly fee you have to pay for service.

AT&T and Verizon, for example, charge $59.99 per month for 900-minute plans–not including the obligatory data plan for your iPhone or Android phone. And if you’re a serious gabber, the unlimited voice plans will run you $69.99 monthly.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could switch to the cheapest available voice plan, without giving up a single minute of talk time? Thanks to a couple amazing apps, you can.

6 Money Saving Tips for Small Businesses

Here are six money saving tips for small business owners which, if properly implemented, could lead to earlier and more sustainable success.

Credit Cards Can Cut the Cheddar You Spend on Gas

The price of gas sure does stink these days, but what are you gonna do about it?  While many will treat that as a rhetorical question, choosing simply to pay up and grumble as the national average price for regular gas creeps toward the $4.00 mark, others will take a more practical approach to the issue and look for ways to ease the financial burden.  You therefore have to wonder:  Can something as simple as a rewards credit card help weather the storm of rising gas prices?

Absolutely! The right gas credit card can save you upwards of 5% per gallon, which would basically be the equivalent of paying last year’s prices.  The trick is finding the offer that best matches your lifestyle and spending habits.

Celebrities know how important it is to look beautiful. Having spent so much time in a hair and makeup chair, they know a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t.

Girlfriend Body Pillow Scratch

One of the things I love most about shopping on Amazon is they have everything I need. But they also have lots of things that nobody needs. I decided to investigate further and bought the 3 most useless or obnoxious items I could find on Amazon – the Girlfriend Body Pillow, BIC For Her Pens, and a Banana Slicer.

Were any of them worthwhile in any way or was it just a pit of despair? Find out in the video:
