Frugality and Me – Perfect Together

Lately, I have found myself browsing these internet ‘deal’ sites. I got my first taste from Anandtech’s Hot Deals web site. I was intrigued by the creativity these people had in order to squeeze as much merchandise from a retailer for the least amount of money, all legal and playing by the rules. Sometimes, the retailer would cancel the order because it was a mistake, but most times things went right through. Many of the Hot Dealers spoke of another site called FatWallet. I ventured over to it one day and found a much more robust community that found deals on everything from DVDs to Computers. They really knew how to get the most bang for your buck. I would buy things that I needed or wanted, but mostly I bought things because it was too good of a deal to pass up. A $25 Targus Laptop Bag? That’s a no brainer. Could I pass up a 18″ Dell LCD Screen with DVI? For $400? Not on your life.

I then found out about Spoofee. This site is very similar, but they post the top 3 or 4 deals of the day. I was able to purchase a Lexmark E210 for about $50; a deal I got from Spoofee.

Lastly, I wanted to mention the Outlet / Friday Sale. Every Friday, Amazon puts some pretty good deals up at this location. It’s worth a look see.

BLOG again

I’ve decided to try this whole BLOG thing again. I’m been using Google Toolbar alot lately and the latest version now support BLOGing. So, it appears to be the wave of the future or something. Who knows. Previously, I was not keeping up with it and generally didn’t care, but maybe I’ll take another swing at it. Looks like my last activity was almost a year ago. Sadly, not much is new. You can check out some of the photos that may or may not be new to you, the reader.

Of course, you can also check out the Philly Restaurant Reviews. I think I am becoming the next Zagat Guide. Not.

In any case, the worst thing that can happen with this is that my search hits increase. From what I read, blogs tend to me the reason for increased search hit. Whatever.
