Tips and Ideas for Online Shopping

I love the convenience that online shopping provides.  It is especially nice for someone like me who lives in northern Minnesota and really hates to go out in the super cold weather.  Unfortunately, the biggest holiday season here in the US falls during the cold winter months when I don’t like to go outside. That is when I like to do most of my shopping online.  I have found that there are helpful tips and ideas for shoppers at  Anyone who wants to be a smart online shopper should check them out.

My hubby and I usually do our online shopping at He  buys a lot of books there but there are all kinds of other things in addition.  During the holiday season is when I make use of the shopping holiday guide most. I want to know where to get the best deals online for the things that I need. That is the time of the year that I need to work harder than ever so I can buy holiday presents for myself, my family and my loved ones. Since it is the time of the year when everyone is busy shopping for good deals, I prefer doing my shopping online so I don’t have to fight with the crowd.

Vinyl Wall Stickers & Decals

It’s almost summer time, in just a month, the breeze and freshness of summer will soon embrace our day, aren’t you feeling the warmth already??? For me, summer means joy and adventure. Do you have plans already to make it something special?

Moreover, I have some plans in my mind and it’s something productive this time. I’m planning to make this summer creative, fruitful yet fun! Now that I am so done with my studies and my reviews, I guess it’s about time for me to pay time to something that I had forsaken for years with the busy schedule of my student life then. Do you have any idea what I am talking about?

Well of course, it’s nothing else but my room, in which I had left unattended for quite some years of my studies. The room which has been a big part of my success, the witness of every tear of failure I shed and lessons I had gained in life. I want to revive it that it will look cool, full of life and colors but are paints enough? What other ways can I make my room creative and artistic even with my not so good art skills?

Add Ambiance To Your Room

Good thing I discovered vinyl wall stickers and vinyl wall decals that are available on the internet! The two acts like the stickers and decals I used to apply to my nails. I never really imagined that I can do state of the art creations on my room or even to any parts of our house like these on my own. Definitely these stickers and decals make lonely rooms alive, colorful and vibrant! The two are just brilliant ideas for rooms and other parts of our home. Wall stickers are even quicker, easier and less expensive than paints. Vinyl wall decals on the other hand are more sophisticated than stickers that are smooth textured and give that benefit of less messy setup.  They are easier to apply and to remove without leaving marks or damaging the paint of your wall whenever you want to change it. However, both give a promising new ambiance to your room and in your home in general.

What’s even great is that both are available in manifold modern styles from simple floral to more complicated designs that you can even customize. If you aspire to be an artist on your own yet do not have the skills to be one, then this is the answer.

All these at prices that anyone can afford and everyone can enjoy! This is indeed worth sharing.

Marketing Tasks for as low as £5

It has been more than five years now since I started working online. My writing skills are not great and since English is not my native language, that makes it even harder for me. Freelance writing could have been a big money maker if I was more gifted in that area but I manage to get by blogging with the help of my hubby. I also make money off social marketing where everything is provided to me and I just have to share the info with my social media followers. I have been trying hard to improve my writing skills because I know that the income from doing that can be lucrative. I recently came across a website called fivesquids where I can make money from writing articles.

Fivesquids has been around since 2010 but I just recently heard about them. I did a little research and came across a discussion board for people who did work for people listed on fivesquids. Some people recommended it because it has become a life saver for them after losing their jobs. I am always looking for opportunities to increase my online income and fivesquids looks like it might be very easy for me to supplement my income.

Fivesquids was designed to make it fun and easy for people to turn their skills into a source of income by trading amongst themselves. This is a place where students, moms and others like me can offer freelance writing and other services to those who need them. We can work from the comfort of our own homes at our own convenience. If you need articles for your blogs or websites and don’t have a big budget to hire writers, fivesquids is the place to go. They have a pool of individuals with skills and talents that can do things for you for as little as £5. Sellers get paid once they deliver the work.

The limits are endless.

* Registration is free. Only registered users can buy and sell on fivesquids.
* Buyers pay fivesquids for orders in advance.
* Fivesquids accredits sellers once an order is complete.
* Sellers may withdraw their revenues to a PayPal account of their choice.
* If an order is cancelled (for any reason), the seller’s revenues are returned to the buyer.

Save 40-90% off Renting Books at Campus Book Rentals

The prices of everything are getting more expensive everyday. Books are no exception. Blame it on inflation. It has been eleven years since I graduated from college and I am planning to go back to school again. That’s just a plan for now and may be just a plan forever, it all depends on my finances.

The thing that was the biggest expense when I was in college was books and other related things. I am a thrifty person now but was much more so when I was in college. Many times I did not have enough money to buy food. Back then, I had never heard of Campus Book Rentals. We could borrow books from the campus library but that was just for a short period of time and sometimes, the books that we needed were unavailable. Had the program of renting textbooks existed back then, life would have been much easier for me and I could have gotten much better grades.

With Campus Book Rentals, you can rent books for the length of time you need them. You can highlight as you please and it is much cheaper than purchasing books from the campus bookstore. You can save 40-90% off bookstore prices and Campus Book Rentals offers free shipping both ways. To top it off, Campus Book Rentals donates a portion of their proceeds to Operation Smile for each textbook rented.

Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity that heals children’s smiles, forever changing their lives. As an international charity for children, they measure themselves by the joy they see on all of the faces they help. They are more than a charity and more than an NGO. Operation Smile is a mobilized group of medical professionals and caring hearts who provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery and related medical care for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate. For more information, visit Operation Smile.

Campus Book Rentals also has a RentBack option which allows student to rent the textbooks they own to other students. This option can make you 2-4x more money than compared to the usual buyback options that most bookstores offer. All you college students out there should definitely check it out.
