PostHeaderIcon 5 Ways Guaranteed To Ruin Your Shopping Experience


Article Source: Online Shopping Store

Yes, you read that correctly. Here are 5 Ways Guaranteed To Ruin Your Shopping Trip. I speak from experience on at least 3 of these…

1 – Always Shop With Your Kids. Better yet, take them to 7-Eleven for a Slurpee on the way to the store. Talk about not caring what something costs, “Just take my money lady so I can get out of here.” I guarantee you will walk out of the store with one less kid, and be like “Oh well, he should be OK. He knows where we live.”

2 – TLC Camera Crew In Parking Lot. Your screwed. Especially when you try and checkout and both open registers have Extreme Couponers checking out. If this happens, try taking a nap in the cereal aisle. There should be plenty of empty shelf space to stretch out in. People, can you really eat 25 boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios?

3 – Always Take an Employee’s “Word For It”. My wife does this at Blockbuster. “The girl checking me out said it was good.” I typically respond, “Was she wearing a Justin Bieber shirt?”

4 – Shop at Wal-Mart. I can’t really think of anything to add…oh wait, silly me, I Can.

5 – Be Color Blind. If you are afflicted, be really careful in the meat department. Green meat. Bad.

Anything to add? This would be the time to do it.

Stephen Webster Ocean Brooch



Stephen Webster designed this unique one-of-a-kind Ocean brooch as part of Project Ocean, a partnership between Selfridges and the Zoological Society of London. The brooch contains a combination of black spinals, blue sapphires and white diamonds. The amazing brooch, which costs 60,000 pounds, can be found here on Selfridges.com. 15,000 pounds of of the purchase price of the brooch will be given to the Zoological Society of London to set up new – and maintain existing – marine reserves around the world. Selfridges does not make any profit from the sale of the brooch.



Prince Charles stopped by Selfridges last week to launch Project Ocean. You can watch a video here.

PostHeaderIcon Blog Spotlight: 10 Questions With Nicki of Domestic Cents.com


Article Source: Online Shopping Store

I am proud to start a new feature on my blog. Every week, I am going to spotlight a new blog that I think is terrific and interview the founder. Should be fun! Proud to start this feature with my blogging buddy Nicki from Domestic Cents.com. Please E-Mail me if you are interested in being interviewed and having your blog featured!

10 Questions With Nicki of Domestic Cents.com

1. Describe your blog in 5 sentences or less?
~ Domestic Cents is a blog about my personal journey in living frugal. I use domestic arts such as cooking from scratch, sewing and gardening to make a better life for my family while continuing to keep spending and “consumerism” at a minimum.

2. What makes your blog different from all the rest?
~ Probably not much :) I think the main thing that differentiates any blog is the “voice” behind it. I’ve been writing it for a while so I think people have started to get to know me. One thing my readers love is my “Why I do what I do” feature. At the footer of every post I share a little story or funny fact about my daughter.

3. What would I be surprised to find in your refrigerator right now?
~ I don’t think there’s anything all that surprising in there. :-) There’s some leftover birthday cake. We always have sweet gherkins pickles in there – a favorite around here.

4. If you were deserted on a desert island and could pick one music CD to bring, what would it be? (assuming you had a CD player and electricity )
~ A CD is tough. I’d be better off picking a playlist from my Ipod :) If I had to pick a CD – anything Hillsong United would work.

5. When and why did you first start blogging?
~ October 2008. I hadn’t been a stay-at-home mom all that long and I was still figuring out how we were going to make it. I was constantly looking for areas where I could cut back. Blogging seemed like a good way to keep motivated and share my ideas with others.

6. What post on your blog best depicts the essence of you?
~ One of the most popular posts on my blog is My Daughter Won’t Remember We Were Broke. It’s over 2 years old but has gotten the most attention. I think it accurately portrays where we are as a family. Even though it’s not a current post and things have changed a little for us (Chloe is 5 now and about to enter Kindergarten) – I still believe and stand by every word in that post.

7. What blog or website influenced you the most when you started?
~ I was a big Simple Mom and Small Notebook reader back when I first started.

8. Who would play you in a movie about your life, and why?
~ Ummm … maybe Reese Witherspoon? She’s the first person that comes to mind because she’s around the same size as me and a little fun and firey. Years ago – I used to wear my hair like she had it in “Sweet Home Alabama.”

9. When it comes to blogging, what is your biggest pet peeve?
~ People snatching my content without giving credit. Every now and then a reader will email me and say they found a word-for-word portion of one of my posts somewhere else. It’s not uncommon. That’s not cool.

10. What is your favorite breakfast cereal and why?
~ I’m not much of a cereal eater because I’m lactose intolerant. However, every now and then I’ll take a Lactaid pill and indulge in a bowl – usually at night. When I do – it’s Frosted Flakes or something else that’s ridiculously terrible for me.

Thanks Nicki, great answers! I can really relate to #9, once I had a person copy my exact site and claim it as their own. They finally took it down but I almost had to hire a lawyer. Amazing what some people think they can get away with. And as father of 3 young kids, her post from question #6 gave me a lump in my throat. What a beautiful and honest post. Now, go check out her blog, I think you will really get a lot out of it. Remember to E-Mail me if you are interested in being interviewed and having your blog featured.
