... Mom is throwing me a baby shower in her brand new house! Last year her home burned down and the family staying in it was forced to move somewhere else. This opened up the door to mom finally building her dream house that I have personally been hearing about for almost 31 years. This will be sorta a housewarming too! I can't wait to see how she has done, almost completely by herself!

I'll be back later tonight... maybe I will post a rare mommy blog. Until then, scroll past this message and read all the post that will be up all day long... ALL.DAY.LONG! (Thanks to my little ghost!)

Free tools to keep your hard drive in shape

Your computer comprises multiple components. Take away any and you'll have problems. Among the most important, though, is your hard drive. It holds your operating system, personal files, programs and much more.
Losing your hard drive essentially means losing your computer. So, it makes sense to keep it in tiptop shape. Your hard drive is pretty complex. You'll need a number of tools to provide quality maintenance. The following will do nicely.

Revo Uninstaller – Imagine that every garbage bag in your home had holes in it. On the way to the curb, they'd leave a trail of junk. That would be gross. When you uninstall programs, there really is a trail of junk. Unnecessary files, folders and registry entries are often left behind. This tool removes programs and all that leftover stuff.

UltraDefrag – Your hard drive holds a ton of information. But it isn't always stored in an orderly fashion. Programs are made of dozens of different files. But they can be spread all over the hard drive. Bringing together associated files makes retrieving them faster. UltraDefrag makes quick work of defragmenting your hard drive.

HDD Health – Hard drives fail. That's just part of life with computers. And they don't always issue a warning. This tool can alert you to impending problems. It gives you the chance to take action. You can back up your files and get a new hard drive.

WinDirStat – A new hard drive can seem like a magician's top hat. You can fit nearly anything inside. But in truth, space is finite. At some point, you'll ask, "Where did it all go?" This program can tell you. You'll see which files and programs are taking up the most space. You can remove things you no longer need.

Cost: Free
System: Windows XP, Vista and 7

Victoria's Secret:
Free PINK Fragrance collection
^Super cute! 3 scents: Hope, Wish, Live

They did not have the baby monitor, pointed to the Kiosk for me to look it up to see if it was online. After several minutes the kid came over to help. He has been rude to me before b/c I ONLY shop with coupons. The monitor is ONLY available online.

They do not take competitor coupons, so I did not buy the pump I wanted... oh well, $280 they wont get from me.

Matt at the stollers was AWESOME and super helpful, got me my stroller down, offered to take it out front and even came back up to make sure it was carried to my car! These people are super happy and so caring! I guess that happens when you work with baby and toy retail. Been a while.

I did 3 transactions so that I could use % off coupons for each item. the REALLY sweet girl (Leanne) at the Customer Service checkout really helped me out and said she could save me another 10% if I sign up for the credit card... I NEVER spend this much... last time I did I bought a car. So I gave in. She said she would give more of a discount if I just signed up... I will show you where too.

AngelCare Monitor - 89.99
had a coupon for a $20 Gift Card if you spent $90... she couldn't adjust the price or claim tax to push it over $90, but she showed me another coupon for $10 Gift Card wyb up to 89.99. She also gave me more than the 10% discount for getting the credit card. .. I am not seeing the discount.. hmm
Total: 89.99
Tax: 5.85
OOP: 95.84
Got $10 <--- but it is not clear on the transaction... the 10% clearly was not taken off. Headed back in the AM.

Medela Breast Pump - 279.99
20% coupon - (-56.00)
10% credit card - (-22.40)
Total: 201.59
Tax: 13.11
OOP: 214.70

Explore the galaxy

I like to look at the stars. This free space simulation program lets you look at the entire universe in three dimensions.

Sure, you can look at Earth. But you can also travel from the comfort of your computer chair to any of over 100,000 stars. You can even journey beyond the galaxy.

As the developers state, the exponential zoom feature lets you explore space across a huge range of scales, from galaxy clusters down to spacecraft only a few meters across. A "point-and-go-to" interface makes it simple to navigate through the universe.

Celestia comes with a large catalog of stars, galaxies, planets, moons, asteroids, comets and spacecraft. If that's not enough, you can download dozens of easy to install add-ons with more objects.

I didn't manage to find any baby items for Babies-R-Us Great Trade-In (DID YOU?? TELL ME ABOUT IT!) And the baby shower is tomorrow! My dad and Grandmother are giving me a check that will put a HUGE dent in the stroller, but there are other things I HAVE to have as well and sale ends tomorrow...

Baby Trend Expedition Travel System Stroller is $199
coupon for 20% off ANY one baby item - exception: Bugaboo, Baby Jogger, Motherhood Maternity, video game hardware, etc.... well baby jogger is in CAPS which leads me to believe it is a brand.. it IS, as is Motherhood Maternity. BabyJogger. video game hardware is not. My coupon SHOULD work...  = $160+tax

The breast pump I want is $270
Babies-r-us coupon 20% off = $216

The other MUST have the moment the baby is here is the Angelcare Monitor (I have known 3 babies to have died from SIDS and it terrifies me! I will be a helicopter mom.. it's ok, I've come to terms.)
BRU - has a 1 unit monitor for $89, coupon for a $20 GC for monitor over $90
Target - has a 2 unit monitor for $99... will they match the target coupon? I will try, then head across the street to see is 89.00 +tax will get me the $20 GC.

Later on I still have to hit up Publix... bleh. Spending money is not my forte, honest... BRU/Target is going to be brutal!

Keep browser tabs open without slowing down

Adding tabs to my browser supercharged my Web surfing. I didn't need to have dozens of windows open. I could open a dozen sites in a single window. It was like I had gone from crawling to driving a race car.

Unfortunately, progress comes at a cost. Having four dozen tabs open at once really sucks up resources. If you browse like this, things tend to slow down. Sites load slowly. Videos turn choppy. And occasionally, the whole thing crashes.

But you can't be asked to go back to crawling, can you? That would be undignified. If you've experienced these problems, try BarTab. This Firefox extension preserves performance while you go tab crazy.

You often load tabs in the background (e.g., right-click>>Open Link in New Tab). When this happens, BarTab freezes any loading. The tab will only load when you actually click on it. Open all the tabs you want. But only use system resources when looking at them.

(You can manage BarTab from the Tabs tab in the options menu. On a PC, click Tools>>Options. On Mac, click Firefox>>Preferences.)
