My Mom Is The Queen Of Bargains

Posted on Monday, April 18, 2011 in Financial, Intellectual, Values

My Mom Is The Queen Of Bargains.

She’s gotten lots and lots of worthwhile things for FREE.  My mom has cleverly found several ways to legally get FREE items.  Almost every week my mom tried to convince me to get off my couch and go get brand new free things that she has found stores giving away.

My favorite frugal-mom moments are when I have a chance to marvel as my mom finds legal ways have stores pay her to take their products home.  They pay her!

Posted on Saturday, November 21, 2009 in Reviews, Technical

Web 2.0 is cutting edge. Google’s new Chrome OS will use web apps exclusively. This post concludes the list of my favorite FREE web apps.

reQall

I’ve used reQall to leave myself voice mails.  reQall converts my voice mails into text.  reQall Standard is the free service. “It lets you organize tasks, ideas and important notes in one place and have reminders delivered at the right time.”

Shape Collage Online

I’ve used Shape Collage on my Mac for a while.  It’s a cute and clever web app that takes my photos and creates a, yes, collage out of them.

Friends Wear Less Masks

Our Pandemic

“While the H1N1 virus has sickened tens of thousands of people and closed summer camps in a season when there should be little flu activity, it has killed far fewer than the 36,000 Americans who die from seasonal influenza each year. ”

I had not idea — no idea — that the “flu” was so deadly. I was blind to the pain and suffering that people experience.

In order to protect themselves many people defensively protect themselves with masks.
