While many people have been awake for hours, fighting crowds for deals, I prefer sleeping in and surfing websites for good presents.  The biggest challenge for me is not finding the best deal, but finding presents that have the quality, durability, and re-playability.  Searching the top ten lists on most sites is a waste of [...]

Netflix just sent us a new batch of coupon codes for a one month free trial.  Enjoy! Netflix coupon codes

Over the last few weeks I’ve been looking for tools to really take advantage of our iMac and try to get our life more organized.  It’s so easy to get in a “digital rut” of using the same programs each day and miss out on all the new innovation.  So when I heard Evernote mentioned [...]

This week the Parent Bloggers Network and FamilyAware.org are talking about ways that parents deal with the holiday craziness.  We always seem to fall behind and have a late Christmas eve, but this year I made an effort to at least get my Christmas shopping done in a timely manner so I can avoid any [...]

I’ve had good success posting my Netflix referral links on the site whenever they offer the 1 month free trial.  People get the extra 2 weeks of free service and I get 5 bonus rentals.  Lately we’ve been getting so many people using my links that I max out my bonus rentals the first day.  [...]

This week’s blog blast is sponsored by  the Parent Bloggers Network and its on The First Day of School. Its obviously fitting for lots of people this time of year but especially me since I’m sort of half excited and half dreading the start of the school year right now! Ethan will be starting K [...]

Does anyone here use twitter?  I’ve been hearing about it for a long time on the podcasts I listen to, but never tried.  I finally broke down and signed up, but didn’t bother going back to check the feeds I was following.  Today, while upgrading to Firefox 3 (awesome!) I discovered TwitterFox, a Firefox plugin [...]

I’ve been listening to a lot of podiobooks and audible books lately and find myself saying “the kids will love this…when they’re older”. Since some of our readers have older kids or are themselves young at heart I decided to post a list of some of my favorites. These are all for the Harry Potter [...]
