Before beoming a full time caregiver and blogger, I used to work for a bank. One of my jobs was to order checks for customers. So many banks use Deluxe, doesn't it make sense to cut out the middle man? And save a little money?

Deluxe doesn't just offer checking items. They also offer promotional products like pens, drinkware, and magnets; Printing like business cards, invitations, and brochures; and Business Services like web design, email campaigns, and direct mailings.

Going back to school? Need cheap textbooks and research access?

School semester is starting up soon and with it comes the preparation for the semester. Attending college, working toward my Bachelors degree in Information and Library Science, has shown me a few helpful tips along the way.

Excellent deals on textbooks through Amazon up to 30% on the price of new textbooks and up to 90% on millions of used listings! And if I couldn't find the books I need there I would head to or I never went through the university for my books.

If you don't have a lot of money, consider trading in your unwanted gift cards for credit to Amazon through where you can buy, sell and trade gift cards!What a great option to get rid of those unwanted gift cards and get something you need!

College is Hard - Research is Easy

Some classes demand knowledge at your fingertips and Questia provides that to students who don't have time to wait for the library. They have over 72,000 copyrighted books, over 2 million newspaper and journal articles, full text searching and reading, online note taking highlighting, quote/citation capability in several formats, and instant bibliography creation which can save so much time!

Good luck this semester! When I was a kid, I devoured books. I loved to read. Do you know anyone like that? I do. My stepdaughter LOVES to read and would read a 100 books a month if we would let her. But at $10.00 a pop for each one, the price gets steep! Now, with Booksfree, you can get unlimited paperbacks for only $10.99 a month!  20% off your first month at Use coupon code: CJ86

Recycle Your Christmas Tree

I normally try something first before I write about it, but I want to share these ideas before you get rid of your Christmas tree, decorations, wrappping paper and more. I heard all these tips on the Rachael Ray show today when the host, Michele Beschen, from the PBS series B Organic, was on. I can't wait to try this out with our tree!

There were so many different ideas for a Christmas Tree after the holidays. You can make coasters by sawing off rings from the base of the tree, necklaces from the branches, hair stems for your hair, painted ornaments, and much more once it has dried for a while (yes family that is reading this- act surprised!)

Another neat repurposing idea she showed was using a paper shredder for all the wrapping paper. Shred it into a bag. All the colors blend together and then you can use it in gift bags! Broken ornaments can be transformed into jewelry!

There were so many ideas and I loved that they repurposed items instead of throwing them away. To watch the episode you can visit the Rachael Ray website.

How do I Resize Photos for Online Use

Digital pictures used to frustrate me so much! I never knew which format to use adn teh size was always wrong. You know what I'm talking about. The photo is so small you can't see it or so big that you get a giant eye staring at you and nothing else. You try to resize it and it ends up grainy and washed out. Not anymore!

Now you can go to, upload your photo, choose the size you want, and presto! You've got your bigger, or smaller, photo! They strongly recommend you save a copy of your photo before uploading and making changes to your photo. The best part is it's free!

If you need to switch between formats like JPEG, RAW, TIFF, GIF and more try AVS Image Converter. This converter is a download to your computer so need to stay online to convert your images. Never again do you need to spend hours fussing over sizes or formats. Now you can concentrate on the real purpose of your photos!
