Throwing in the towel

I gave blogging a good solid shot, I thought I could help people save money, be frugal and coupon maybe I could even make a few bucks along the way. Apparently its just not for me, because no matter what I did, I couldn't get a good following, and the ones who were following didn't  become involved, so that tells me, that my content just didn't "cut the mustard" lol And that is ok, I am happy with my decision, I honestly want to give my family more of my time anyway. I have a husband and two beautiful boys to wrap my life around and that is enough for me. I pray this finds you all in a good place and if you dont know my Savior Jesus Christ that you will find him and live your life completely for him. He really is the best friend you could ever have! Bless you all! And I will catch you on the flip side. :)

Swagbucks is another FREE MONEY site! I LOVE Swagbucks!! Since I signed up for Swagbucks in, I believe May of 2009, I have redeemed $120 gift cards, $5 Paypal and too many to count Swagstakes! You can earn SB by searching, using their toolbar is the best way to be alerted when there are new codes and you dont forget to use SB to search if its always right there in front of you. They DO NOT spam you in anyway, that is always a plus when you sign up for something. Anyway, other than searching as you normally would on sites such as Google, Bing, etc., there are coupons, daily deals, daily polls, games, NOSO (no obligation special offers), Special offers, Swagbucks tv, Tasks, Trade in and Trusted surveys, and my favorite-referrals! For every referral you get, whatever amount of SB your referral gets by searching, you get the same amount matched up to 1,000! And if you watch the blog you will be given freebies, too! They will occasionally, like throwing a dog a bone, throw us Swagcodes to enter in your main SB page to get more SB! There are so many things you can do to earn SB, all you have to do is SIGN UP and let the free money roll in...simple as that. Please use any of the links on this page, so that I can get credit for referring you. :)

OK, so I haven't mentioned this in awhile. Paybox is a PayPal type of company, specifically for digitally delivered goods. I, as have many others, have been in with Paybox as Early Bird Users, so we have accumulated hundreds even thousands of dollars in currency. I have been a member since late February and to date, I have accumulated $949.45!! Just for logging in and giving feedback on different things that they asked for, once in awhile. They start you off with $25 and each referral you get, you receive $10! They are getting ready to go live, I am guessing next week sometime, so it would be a good idea if you have not signed up as of yet, to do so. You can earn a little extra moolah to go toward anything that you may buy digitally. Other than MP3's and books for your E-reader, I honestly dont know of anything else, maybe e-gift cards? Those are delivered digitally! ;-) But like I said, I really don't know all this will entail, so get signed up and lets spend some free money!!

Free Stainless Steel Ring with Black Spinner

Tanga~Free  Stainless Steel Ring with Black Spinner!

Tanga is at it again! I remember seeing this special awhile back, you cant hardly beat this! You only pay shipping of  $4.99 and you can get it in sizes 6.5-13! That covers a lot of finger sizes. Here is a little more information about it:

This one has a wide black plated spinner. It doesn’t change color on you or stain your skin. Very little maintenance is needed in order to keep it looking great! It’s super cool and stylish to boot. Here are some reasons to wear stainless steel:

Stainless steel is strong! Stainless steel is a very strong metal, as is evidenced by its use in manufacturing, cooking and a variety of other high-demand industries. Because stainless steel is so durable, jewelry designers have been using it in the production of wristwatches and other items likely to receive abuse during normal wear for quite some time. Stainless steel rings are great if you are looking for an accessory that resists scratches, dents and damage. Stainless steel wedding bands are especially popular for their strength and durability. Your stainless steel ring is likely to maintain its original shape and luster for a lifetime, regardless of how much abuse it takes due to your gaming activities.
Stainless steel is masculine! Stainless steel has always been associated with rugged masculinity, due to its use in the industrial fields. Stainless steel has been used for some time in the production of a number of men’s accessories, including watches, bracelets and eyewear, and the look of stainless steel translates easily to ring designs.
Stainless steel is hypoallergenic! Traditional jewelry metals, such as gold, silver and even platinum, can elicit allergic reactions due to trace impurities in the metals or a person’s allergy to the metal itself. If you are someone who has skin allergies or sensitivities, then you may have had problems finding a ring that you are able to wear comfortably. Stainless steel rings are hypoallergenic and are much less likely to provoke allergic reactions than rings made from other metals.

Help with blog posts

I was having a problem with a big "gap" between my first and second post on my blog. No matter what setting I tweaked, I couldnt figure out what the problem was. It, quite honestly, was driving me bonkers! I will cut to the chase and save a lot of searching for those interested, and give the instructions on how to correct this problem. This is probably elementary and I just didnt know how to fix it until now, but her is the solution:

 On Blogger, from your blog, click on "design" and it should come up automatically to "page elements". On "blog posts" click on "edit". Then, here is the big step, UNCHECK Show Ads Between Posts. 
That will take care of that big gap between the first and second post on your blog. Brilliant, simply brilliant!!! :))

Haute Frugality Slogan Contest!

Ok! So, I am just starting out on my blogging journey, late bloomer, I know. *sigh*  I think this would be the perfect opportunity to have a contest! As of right now, I have only 12 'likes' on my facebook page and 3 Google Friend Connect friends and 4 Twitter followers, less than a month at it, not too bad. But I would love to have more friends to share with. The more the merrier, right? Well, I want to promote my site some more, so I was thinking I need a slogan. Something catchy, a play on words maybe? I have come up with a few, but I think I need some new ideas and what better way to do that than to have some of my good friends help me? This will be a very simple contest. What I want you all to do is 'Share' this contest with your friends (remember, the more the merrier?), and get them in on the fun. The one with the most creative, catchy slogan wins. If I cant decide which I like best, then I will post my favorites and have a vote. As I said earlier, I am just starting out, so the prize is not a big one, it will be a $5 Starbucks card! But, the more friends and followers I get the better the contests and prizes will get. So, Share and get creative!

Doing The Math on Coupons

I came across this and it is one of the best articles, in regards to couponing, that I have read in quite some time. It puts all the numbers into perspective. A must read, to say the least...

Bipolar Disorder Awareness Month

This has nothing to do with being frugal, or couponing or sweepstakes...but I must make my public service February, though I am lagging a bit since the month is almost over, is Bipolar Disorder Awareness Month. February has been designated as Bipolar Disorder Awareness Month since 2009. I, myself, am a "carrier" of Bipolar Disorder and understand all too well the stigma that surrounds the disorder. If everyone would educate themselves this could be a more socially understood illness. There are too many people that have Bipolar Disorder, who are ashamed of it, or afraid to be open about it. "What about you, you ask?". I am not ashamed of it, it is a pain, but we ALL have SOMETHING to deal with that we really don't want to. I have never been ashamed of anything about myself. The way I look at it, God made me the way He did for a reason. He is an all knowing God and He will not give us any more than we can handle. It is very frustrating at times, but everything happens for a reason and I have come to accept this. I hope this may help someone who has Bipolar Disorder to see that they are beautiful, no matter what. God is perfect and He created each and every one of us and He does not make mistakes. I will insert a couple links below for educational purposes, for anyone that doesn't really understand Bipolar Disorder and wants to. God Bless!
