On a side note, I have to apologize once again for not keeping this updated. The holidays were crazy and it's been even crazier since. Please stay tuned, though as I have a ton of great tips coming up.
Some of you have emailed me wondering why I recommend purchasing products either at ebay or a site linked to ebay. There are actually several reasons behind this. First and foremost being that this is a blog about saving time and money. Ebay is a treasure trove of excellent buys and you can get many items there for less than half of what you would pay at a retail store. Second, many people who read this blog don't live in or near a large town with department stores and they must rely on the internet to get what they want. I simply point to a marketplace where you can get the products at the best possible price.
I hope these solutions will help you and as always, please feel free to comment your thoughts.
