Saving money online

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Bidazzled. All opinions are 100% mine.

LIfe is an interesting game of give and take, sometimes it's all about being in the right place at the right time. If you enjoy playing the online bidding game trying to save your money you need to check out the new site that was recently launched called Bidazzled. Bidazzled is a different kind of online auction, commonly known as a penny auction, they work by the participants buying their bids ahead of the auction. When the auction begins you start by placing your bid and as you do this a few seconda are added to the online auction site to allow others the opportunity to increase their bid. The bidding stays open until there are no more bids. Generally you can save up to 90% off the regular retail of an item so you could potentially win that Wii, laptop or other item for a bid of only a few dollars. This is definetly a different option available that can have a significant benefit to your online shopping experiencé.

Turkey Time

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Club House. All opinions are 100% mine.

There is nothing better than a traditional Turkey Supper with all the trimmings, we always went home for Christmas but a few years back we moved about 7 hours away from home so it made it a bit more difficult to do that so we had to start our own traditions. I can remember that first year when we tried to cook the turkey and make gravy afterwards. It just didn't work, the gravy was too thin and then it became too thick and by the time we were done it was totally inedible. It's hard to find gravy on Christmas day with all the stores closed but I managed to find a store that carried a packaged gravy from the "Club House" brand, I was skeptical at first but there is no doubt that these packages were able to save the meal. This has become our traditional Gravy alternative we look forward to our "Club House" every year. With the Clubhouse Website you can take advantage of the newsletter sign-up and contest entry to get even more ideas and value from your Club House experience.
Club House has an entire line of spices to spice up and add flavor to every recipe if you are looking for more information and ideas to perk up your holiday entertaining by checking out the gravy tips video online on the Club House website

Christmas Secrets

I have a terrible dilema, how does one keep his wife's Christmas present a secret from her. I have no where to hide her gifts that she won't come accross. The only spot that I can think of is down in my basement in my work shop area. She can be a little on the nosey side as I have seen her open presents and peek in them and then wrap them back up. I have to find a new hiding place and wondered if anyone has any ideas that I could use.

I'm dreaming of a "Creamy White" Christmas

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NESCAFE. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have been looking for the perfect coffee machine for my folks for a while now, with Christmas coming up I wanted to get them a real nice machine that they can make use of. It took a bit of research to find what I thought was the perfect machine for them. They often complain about their machine because it is so big and it is hard to make just a cup of coffee for just the two of them. The NESCAFE Dolce Gusto machine is an incredible new machine that not only brews coffee but can be used to make a variety of beverages both hot and cold. The Gusto is also available in 3 designer colors, candy-apple red, creamy white and sophisticated black. It prepares beverages that can rival the quality of coffee houses at a fraction of the price. It uses capsules to make the differance and you can order these online or get them at your authorized dealer. The Gusto even comes with great bonus in every box. Included is an offer for 16 Free capsules to help you try a variety of beverages at no risk to you. You can enter a contest right now to win your very own Gusto Machine but hurry as the contest closes December 20th.

Look out here come the IN LAWS

It has been almost a year since my in-laws have been here to visit us. With the busy time of year the house work has fallen a little behind. I have been very busy the last couple of weeks getting all the Christmas lights up. I began to get some cleaning done tonight while my wife is at work but after sweeping the floor I went for the mop and realized that we threw out the mop head after the last cleaning. It is too late tonight to go get one as all the stores are now closed. I guess mopping will have to wait for tommorrow. Wish us luck it usually is a very hectic time when they come to visit.

Game Time...Snack Time

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of henderson bas. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have to admit I am finding it increasingly difficult to keep up to the demands of daily life. I have a wonderful (busy) family including my beautiful wife and our 4 children ages 5 - 13. My wife recently returned to the working world after spending a number of years looking after the household. It was important for her to get out of the house a bit and also to get that little bit of extra funds to help with the raising costs of activities our kids are involved in. We are constantly on the run between school, basket ball tournaments, bowling and dance activities we are busy almost every night of the week. Sometimes I am just looking for a quick lunch on my way off to work or something quick while my wife and I do the kid switch off. My favorite fast lunch is the Crustini, I keep the jumbo box of Philly Steak in the fridge at all time. They are incredible, tasty and filling while actually coming out of the microwave crispy with the special crisper tray. I just heard that the makers of Crustini's are lunching a Game Day Promotion that allows anyone in Canada to enter for a chance to win a VIP trip for two to Las Vegas to check out a game, the prize package includes Airfare, and 4 nights of accomadations at a deluxe hotel. While spending your $1,500 spending money you can also enjoy chauffeured limosine service to help you get around town. Now there are also secondary prizes that are really cool too including 3 Home Theatre Packages and a weekly prize of a digital camera. You won't even have to wait to see if you have one because the contest is set up as an instant win so as soon as you enter the information required you will instantly now if and what prize you are eligible to win.

Christmas Shopping

What an exciting day, it is December 1st and I have to admit to being completely finished my Christmas Shopping List. I have never been finished this early, usually I am rushing to finish on Christmas Eve. It is a very great feeling to be all done, it was a combination of buying less and working with the budget. This will allow us to enjoy our December so much more not rushing around for Gifts.
