♫♪♪♫ Ch Ch Ch Changesss ♫♪♪♫

If you have noticed my links broken, that is because I am no longer using logicalmedia. Long drawn out story I wont bore you with. But I am now going to be using several NEW advertisers.

As you know, most if not all of us bloggers use affiliate sites in hopes of making a few extra bucks while doing what we love: providing our readers with the coolest giveaways, best deals, tons of coupons and freebies and the occasional ad to click on.

I found that with my previous advertiser I was getting offers for Hoverounds and travel guides... and YOU weren't clicking on them. No surprise. A few loyal gals out there in the cyberhood knew that I was getting a small compensation (and by small I mean up to 40 cents per email address) but I think I have found some sites that will let me pick better offers.

Cheap plane tickets, clothing store deals, baby products and other actually useful products.

So please let me know if there are any posts or ads that really hit the spot or just don't interest you in the slightest. Doesn't exactly mean I will quit posting them or having them on my sidebar, just means that I really want to tailor my site to YOU so that I can make a small profit off of what YOU want. Many of them will be commission based, so if you aren't buying, I am wasting my time and my webspace.... not to forget turning you guys off and I dont want you leaving.

It will take a few days to get completely changed over, so be patient. I will be posting links from others, so whoever I credit the post to will get the click through count!

Please be patient with the transition and when its up and going, CLICK a few ads for me!

Kim Komando - Daily Download - Save on fav programs!



Free alternatives to pricey software

Good software usually carries a big price tag. Equipping your computer can cost thousands of dollars. Or you could find free alternatives. These programs are often just as good. They may work slightly different. But they get the job done.

Here are some of my favorite alternative programs:

Microsoft Outlook (Save $110)
Spicebird – E-mail is one of the most important programs you can have. Microsoft Outlook handles that and more. Sure, it's your inbox. But it also stores your contacts, calendar and to-do list.
Going with an alternative doesn't mean giving up that functionality. Just try Spicebird. It handles e-mail like Outlook. And it organizes your contacts, calendar and to-do list. It also throws in instant messaging. So, you can easily collaborate with others.

*I love this one!! and we use it on all 3 of our computers!
Microsoft Office (Savings here starts at $150)
OpenOffice.org – Microsoft Office is the standard for productivity software. Almost everyone use it. It does word processing, spreadsheets, presentations and more. But so does OpenOffice.org. And it's free.
On top of that, OpenOffice.org is compatible with Microsoft Office. So, you can send documents to friends, family and co-workers. And you'll know they'll be able to open them.

Quicken (Save $40)
GnuCash – Staying on top of your personal finances is important. It's also a lot of work. Having a good personal finance program is essential. Many people use Quicken. But GnuCash is just as powerful.
Use it to record financial transactions. Track bank accounts, investments and more. And tie it all together into handy and detailed reports.

Illustrator or CorelDRAW (Save $600 and $430)
Inkscape – Professional quality graphic design takes a skillful artist. And that artist needs really good graphics software. These people often use programs like Illustrator or CorelDRAW. They are great, but expensive.
Inkscape is an open source program for creating scalable vector graphics. That means graphics that can be enlarged without losing quality. It can be used to create logos, icons, Web sites and much more.

Photoshop (Save $700)
GIMP – Photographers and artists know the importance of a good image editor. Many of them turn to Photoshop. It can work wonders in the right hands. And it's the most expensive program on the list.
GIMP can handle nearly any image-editing task. It has an impressive set of tools that easily compares to Photoshop. Edit photos, create original art and lot more.

iTunes (Free)
Songbird – Wait a second. iTunes is already free. Why would you need a free alternative? Well, iTunes is a great program. I use it every day. If you have an iPod or iPhone, it's the one for you.

But there are other phones and MP3 players out there. And iTunes supports none of them. That's where Songbird comes in. It works with almost any MP3 player. It also handles smartphones like the Palm Pre and Motorola Droid. And it looks and feels like iTunes. So, you're already used to it.

Using all of these alternatives could save you $1,600 or more. Not bad.

Cost: Free
System: Windows XP, Vista and 7, Mac OS X

ughhh I never thought I would have to buy these again... I guess I never really thought of life after pregnancy. And I dont have to for 9 more weeks, but I am stocking up now.

I went to Publix last night (Spent $45, saved $261 - later post) and stocked up on Kotex!

Amy beat me to it and posted this deal:

Kotex Pads are $3.39 and there is a Publix store B1G1 Coupon in the green advantage buy flier and a Publix store 75 cent coupon from the Little Book of Big Buys and a $2 manuf coupon on Coupons.com

$3.39 x 2 = $6.78 - $3.39 (bogo) - $2 (manuf) - .75 (store) = 64 cents for 2 packs

**This would also qualify for the rebate in the Little Book of Big Buys (Spend $30 get $10 Publix gift card)
---HOWEVER, you can only submit this once per house... I recommend getting to know your neighbors! I'm waiting on 3 from a Huggies sale 2-3 weeks ago!

Bring Mac functionality to your PC

Here’s a shocking fact. Macs and PCs are different. I just blew your mind, didn’t I? OK, maybe not. But they do have different interface features. Both work. It’s just a matter of preference.

You may switch between a Mac and PC regularly. You might even be using Windows on your Mac. I do. And I keep trying to use Mac features in Windows. I find that features like Quicklook, Spaces and Active Corners are really handy.

Well, you don’t have to lose those features while on your PC. maComfort adds Quicklook, Spaces, Active Corners and more to any PC. It also lets you use Mac keyboard shortcuts.

Switching between your Mac and PC doesn’t have to be jarring. This program gives you some interface continuity. It can help you be more productive. You won’t have to keep two separate systems in your mind.
(maComfort comes in free and pay versions. The free version is more than enough for most people.)

Albertsons - Diaper Deals - Size 3

Albertson’s has size 3 Baby Basics Diapers (Big Box of 104 Diaper) for $8.00 OFF of $17.99. 

www.parents.com has a Baby Basics diaper coupon for $4.00 OFF (It shows up as an advertisement when you page through their website-sometimes it’s on top like a banner and sometimes it’s on the right side of the screen.) 

Plus, on top of everything else a survey coupon for $2.00 OFF your next visit prints out on the bottom of the register receipt.  That brings the cost to be a little less than  $.04 a diaper!

*They will do rain checks on this too if they are out. This deal is ONLY on size 3 box of diapers. SaveathomeMommy was told they are going to be changing up the box so they are trying to get rid of them.
*They only allow you to print one coupon per computer at www.parents.com, but she checked back a few days later and it allowed her to print another one

*Thanks SAHM*

*I have never tried these diapers but would be willing to track down an Albertson's if you guys think they are good diapers! Let me know! Comment comment comment.

Learn better and faster using flash cards

Real learning takes a lot more than rote memorization. But it's essential to start with the basic rules, facts and vocabulary. That's true for whatever it is you happen to be studying. And those things do require memorization.
But it can be so boring. Playing the guitar is cool. Learning to find each note is tedious. Speaking French makes you look suave. But you have to build up a vocabulary first.

You'll want to get that baseline knowledge quickly. Using flash cards is a tried and true way to do it. But writing them out on actual cards is so last century. Pauker is a simple flash card program.

You can create your own flash cards or download lessons from the site. The program will test you on your flash cards. And it will keep track of what you've learned. It'll help you get past memorization quickly. Then you can start having fun.
