My New Button

I am so excited. I finally got to use my husbands computer to actually use Photoshop Elements (attention college students... just buy it now, you can upgrade it for years and you will never get it so cheap!)

Here is my new button:
(If you has snagged it before, please replace it with this one!)

Publix - New Coupon Flier

Just got back from Publix for the 3rd time in 2 days... this time with a movie, so I will be returning tomorrow as well. Still didn't find any Sure or Yoplait Greek Yogurt... grrr. Have you entered my giveaway?

Look for the sheet that says "March National Frozen Food Month" where you normally find the weekly flier and advantage buy fliers. It is just a single sheet including these coupon:
  • $1/2 Birdseye Steamfresh vegetables and rice 10-13 oz - It doesnt look like a veggie/rice combo bag, so I guess it is one or the other
  • $1.50/1 Birdseye Steamfresh meanls for two 24 oz
  • $1.2 Gorton's Medium Tender or Grilled Frozen Entrees 6.3-11.4 oz
  • $1 on uncrustables... stack with the $1 from HERE and they are about .76 each!
  • $1.75 on any fresh strawberries wyb 1 Sara Lee pound cake
  • $1/2 Ben and Jerry's or Starbucks 1 pint and I saw a coupon for one of those HERE the other day too!

Freebies to keep you healthy

There's nothing more important than your health. But it can sometimes feel out of your control. Maybe you don't have all the information you need. Or, maybe you're struggling to control your health records.
Whatever the issue, there are resources that can help. I've found some great ones. They'll help you stay on top of your health care. You'll be more informed and empowered.

Google Health—Your health records contain very specific and important information. But you probably don't have them. They're probably stored in manila folders at various doctor's offices. You don't have direct control over your personal health records.

But it doesn't have to be that way. You can maintain and organize your health records at Google Health. You'll also be able to share them with family or other doctors. It's much easier than requesting records from multiple doctors or hospitals. You decide where your health records go.

HealthVault—This is another site for storing, managing and sharing your health records. As with Google Health, you'll compile and enter your information. Then you get to decide how it's used and distributed.

You can quickly share your information with new doctors. You can store and access children's immunization records. You can also find health advice Web sites staffed by real doctors. Sharing specific information can help them give you the best advice.

CareLogger—Nearly 24 million people in the United States have diabetes. It's a condition that can be managed. But it also has to be monitored. Many diabetics must log their glucose levels, heart rate and medications daily.

This site makes that process much simpler. You'll create an online logbook that you can access from anywhere. Adding new entries takes just a few seconds. It also helps you make use of the data. Review your progress with handy graphs and charts. Then, share this information with your doctors.

Heart Profilers—Heart conditions are complicated. But the more you understand, the better off you'll be. And you'll be better able to work with your doctors. Getting that information isn't always easy. But the American Heart Association has tools that can help.

You'll find separate tools for different conditions. These include heart failure, high blood pressure, cholesterol and more. In each, enter as much information about your condition as possible. You'll get treatment options and research tailored to you.

PDRhealth—The Physicians' Desktop Reference contains a wealth of medical information. But it's best known as a resource for detailed information on prescription drugs. This site catalogs any drug your doctor is likely to prescribe.

You can learn about the proper dosage for each drug. You'll see what you should avoid while on the drug. You can read about possible side effects. And you'll find advice on what to discuss with your doctor.—The medical field is always getting better. New drugs, technology and procedures are being invented. But each has to be tested before becoming available to the public. This testing happens in carefully monitored clinical trials.

This site catalogs the progress of more than 80,000 such trials. You can learn what research is being done. And you can see which trials are looking for participants. At the least, you may find things to discuss with your doctors.

World Community Grid—Your computer can connect you to many health resources. But it can also be a resource for others. Distributed computing programs allow researchers to use your computer. You can help them make amazing breakthroughs. 

This is one such program. It helps researchers work on cures for HIV and cancer. It allows them to access your idle computer time. When you step out for coffee, you're really helping to cure diseases.

Life-saving iPhone apps—Medical emergencies can happen anywhere. Knowing how to handle them can save your life. Or, you may be able to save the life of someone else. But where do you get the knowledge? 
With these iPhone apps, you'll find it right in your pocket. You'll get step-by-step instructions for various first aid situations. They can also help you get emergency information from official sources.

Stunning wallpaper from National Geographic

Your desktop wallpaper is the first thing anyone sees on your computer. Don't let it be something bland and devoid of personality. You can find great wallpapers online. I particularly like National Geographic.

This publication employs some of the best photographers in the world. They travel to exotic locations. They take unbelievable pictures. And thousands of them have been put online as wallpapers.

But you don't have to grab them one by one. Just use NatGeo Wallpaper Downloader. It can grab more than 5000 wallpapers with one click. You can choose from 10 categories. Download from one or all of them.

I downloaded around 300 wallpapers in just a few minutes. And I couldn't find one dud. These are stunning photos. You'll never get bored with your desktop wallpaper again. You'll always have something to switch to.

Never miss a great deal on Amazon

If you're shopping online, chances are you're doing it on Amazon. It's the store that has pretty much everything. Pick up DVDs, patio furniture and diapers with one stop.

Of course, you want to get the best deal possible. Amazon adjusts prices all the time. Sometimes it's through unbelievable sales. Often the price might drop just a few dollars. But any saving is good.

Unfortunately, Amazon won't tell you when price changes happen. Constantly checking everything you want to buy is unrealistic. So, give Ookong a try. This Firefox add-on will watch items for you.

When looking at any listing, you'll see a button labeled "Follow this item." Ookong will track the listing for price changes. A small pop-up will automatically alert you when the price drops. Track fun things you want. Then just wait to snap up a great deal.

So here is the contest: Design the Being a Dandelion Button!

  • Must contain a Dandelion, Blow flower or My default picture in some sense
  • Must be smaller than it is now, 125 x 125 would be preferable
  • Must have "Being a Dandelion" somewhere on it
Otherwise the floor is yours!
Email the JPG to

A research assistant in your browser

Research used to be done in the dark stacks of a library. Archived news stories were stored on microfiche. And some things were only learned from an old man in a cave. OK, maybe that's going too far back.

Today, the Web holds all the information you could want. But collecting the useful bits can be a pain. There needs to be a way to collect and recall useful information. And it needs to be better than simple bookmarks.
Whether you're a college student or a student of life, try Zotero. It lets you grab Web pages, documents and images. You can sort them into different collections. Add notes to them. And get the information needed for proper citations.

You can also sync your research between multiple computers. You just need a free online account. Plus, Zotero makes it easy to collaborate with others. Build a body of research without ever leaving your browser.

Rumor has it that if you buy 3 Johnson’s Soap Buddies Bars at Target, you’ll get a Catalina coupon for $2.50/3 Johnson’s Baby Products. You can then use this coupon to purchase 3 more and you’ll get yet another Catalina coupon– which means you can keep rolling this deal!

Johnson’s Soap Buddies are priced around $1, so first buy 3 for a total of $3 and use 3 $1/1 coupons from here and here. Pay nothing but tax and then get back a $2.50/3 Catalina. Buy 3 more soap buddies and use the $2.50/3 Catalina coupon. Your final cost will be around $0.50 for all 3 soap buddies and then you’ll get back yet another Catalina coupon… and you can do it again!

Thanks, Start Out Saving!
