Crime Doesn’t Pay? It Sure Seems To!

The last few weeks, I have learned one important thing. The old phrase “crime doesn’t pay” sure seems to be more false as technology grows! More and more criminals are absolutely making money off of criminal acts and getting away with it without a second thought. Just how can that be? I used to believe the bad guys are always caught.

Birthday Shopping with Groupon Coupons!

It’s crunch time! Birthday planning is in full effect. It is so hard to believe that my little one will be 5 in 17 days. Where does the time go?! Plus my husbands birthday is 2 days before my sons so it is a busy month for us! My little one has requested a million gifts (not happening) and my husband won’t mention anything he wants at all! It makes shopping so hard! Top that with always having your little one around and it makes it hard to even shop for a gift. Needless to say, many of my purchases are done online! Of course I am very thrifty when it comes to spending. So before i even start shopping online, I look for coupon options for my favorite stores and any deals I can find to get the best bang for my buck. One of my favorite sites to … read more
