AlphaBuyer: a Group Deal Site for Your Bills

alphabuyer

I currently belong to entirely too many deal sites, but one of my faves is Jasmere. Like most sites, Jasmere offers a daily (eco-friendly) item at a discounted price— but what makes it awesome is that the more people who sign on for that day's deal, the more the price drops. So even if I buy in right away, at $10 off, if enough people join me I could pay $22 off when the deal … [Read more...]

I also love card games. But it's … [Read more...]

My daughter was sent some Zhu Zhu Babies with outfits and a Dance Recital playset to try out. And by try out, I mean go completely insane over when the box arrived.

Giveaway and Review: Fyrflyz

  I've argued that the best toys are the simple ones that come without instructions, highly transportable, inexpensive, fun for all ages. My official list included things like Frisbees and a deck of cards, but I'm just now realizing I forgot the yo-yo. Yo-yos are great because they take little finesse to be able to use, but the possibilities are endless. Some people … [Read more...]
