Welcome to my blog

I’m all about saving money and I’ll do it however I can. If I have to clip coupons, I’ll do it. If I have to go to Goodwill to buy some stuff on the cheap, then that’s a small price to pay (no pun intended).

Whether it be food, clothes, furniture, or online purchase, I love to come up with ways to get a great bargain or terrific deal. In this blog I’ll be sharing some of the methods I employ to save quite a few dollars on a daily basis.

The best SWTOR classes to play

I’ve been playing Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) since the day it came out. Many people try the game for a week then stop playing after losing interest. My advice to those people is, don’t stop. Instead, simply try a different class, or try playing a different faction. The feel of the game is quite different based on whether you play as part of the Sith Empire or Galactic Republic. Moreover, the style of play differs quite a lot depending on the class you select.

If you traditionally like to play the spellcaster role, whether it be a DPS or healer, then a Jedi Consular or Sith Inquisitor would be your obvious choices. On the other hand, someone who wants to play a tank would choose a Jedi Knight or Sith Warrior.

As for choosing the Sith vs. the Republic, it all boils down to whether you want to be a baddie or a do-gooder. I will say, however, it’s sometimes fun to play a bad Jedi or a good Sith, just to change things up a bit.

There is quite a lot of strategy to playing SWTOR the right way. Going over video game strategy exceeds the scope of this article, but I recommend checking out this list of top swtor leveling guides if you are interested in learning more.

One thing I like about SWTOR is that you can get far in the game soloing or playing as part of a group. Ultimately, you’d want to do a lot of repeatable quests and flashpoints to accrue XP quickly. But for the solo player, there is plenty of content to allow you to progress quite methodically through the game.

Great sites for buying video games cheaply

If you are the type of person who likes to buy new releases, then you probably end up spending a lot of money on video games. Make no mistake, video games give you a lot of bang for your buck. A new game that costs 50 dollars can provide you with hundreds of hours of fun. Nevertheless, it makes sense to still get video games as cheaply as you can. Here are some sites I use to purchase video games at a significant discount.

video game rental store1. Glyde
This is a well-known site that allows you to buy or sell many different kinds of electronic items, such as ipads, iphones, and video games. Pricing for their video games are very low, and you can expect to save around 20 – 40% off of what you might pay if you buy games new. What’s more, you can sell your old old games quickly using Glyde as well.

2. Ebay
Ebay is no longer my favorite place to buy used games, however, it’s still worth checking out. Once in a while, you can find a seller offering a great game at very low prices.  Try to purchase only from sellers with a positive feedback score.

3. Gamefly
Gamefly is probably the one of the most famous video game rental services online. They allow subscribers to rent thousands of titles for many different consoles such as Xbox One and PS4. This also means they also have thousands of used games they are willing to sell at any time. I don’t have the best luck finding new releases, but you can often find older games at a good price by using Gamefly.

If you love to play the latest release and are on a budget, consider joining the Gamefly service as well. For a monthly subscription, you can rent an unlimited number of games and keep them as long as you desire. You can obtain a 30-day free trial of Gamefly for a limited time here.

You can find other great freebies by going to freetrialspot.com.

Contacts are expensive, but you can get deals with a lens.com coupon

lens.com ordering screenGiven the advantages of buying things online, I really believe that everyone should buy as much as possible via the Internet. This includes things like supplements, rare food items, clothes, games, and even contact lenses. There is no need to be concerned about buying health-related items online. As long as you use reputable stores, it’s perfectly safe. My favorite store for contact lenses is Lens.com, but there are many other good stores.

So why Lens.com? Their service and shipping is relatively fast, which is always nice. But I must admit that the #1 reason I choose them is because they have very, very low prices. You can expect to get at least 20 – 30% off regular retail prices, regardless of which brand you choose. But that’s not all. By acquiring a Lens.com promotional code from http://visualdiscount.com/lens-com.php, and using it when you check out, you can often get an additional discount. All these discounts add up, and you may just end up paying half of what you normally do for your contact lenses.

Buying contacts online does take some planning, but not much. Just make sure you order some new boxes when you have about a month of contacts left in your box. This way, you will get your brand new contacts in time, even if there are unexpected delays (which are rare if you use Lens.com).

Go to the following site for more information on online shopping and how to save money with online coupons.

One thing I have begun considering lately is the possibility of getting surgery to correct vision. Yes, I’m talking about Lasik, and the cost of doing this surgery can be as low as $2000 per eye. My best guess is that it will pay for itself after about 20 years. The procedure is probably one of the safest ones around, and the technology has really come a long way. I’ve heard you can have it done in just a matter of hours.

While I love my contact lenses and get them cheaply from Lens.com, I may do a bit more research about Lasik because everything I read about it sounds promising.

Christian mingle: Is it any better than any other dating site?

Is christian dating for you?Christians may be tempted to join site like Christian Mingle, believing it to be a great choice for Christians interested in online dating. But is this really true? The answer is, it depends.

Let’s first look at big, mainstream dating sites such as Match.com. Such sites do allow you to specify religion and search for other members who place a special emphasis on the importance of religion. The same thing can be done at other big dating sites like eHarmony.

What makes Christian Mingle different from those sites, however, is that allows you to provide more details about your religion. For example, the profile has places where you can specify the church you belong to, in addition to provide other facts about your religion. Moreover, because everyone on the site is Christian, you do not need to apply any filters when you search for other members.

Aside for that, Christian Mingle more or less functions like other dating sites. Is it the best site for you? Only you can answer that question, but because there is no cost to join the site and browse around, I encourage you to do so. To get a free account at Christian Mingle, go to http://onlinedatingtrials.com/.

My eHarmony Review

online matchmaking serviceAs far as dating sites go, I believe eHarmony is at the top of the heap. In this article, I will provide a brief review of this online matchmaking service based on my experience using them for a couple years.

Overall, I give eHarmony high marks. I love the fact that they take dating seriously. In fact, it’s safe to say eHarmony is not really trying to hook you up with a date at all. Instead, the site makes a genuine effort to find you the love of your life. To be sure, such a goal does sound a bit overly ambitious, but success speaks for itself, and many studies have shown that eHarmony contributes to more marriages than other dating sites. So if it’s a serious relationship you are after, then eHarmony is the place to be.

The site itself is surprisingly simple. You can join for free, but then you will need to complete a long test designed to assess your personality. Once that is complete, you will begin receive matches based on eharmony’s dimensions of compatibility. From there, you can engage in guided communication with your matches or jump straight to open ended messaging.

The process does take a while, but it seems to work quite well. To be honest, eHarmony does require more patience than other sites, but if you are looking for a meaningful relationship, such things generally don’t happen overnight. eHarmony does a good job of finding you people with whom you are most likely to have a connection. Depending on what you’re looking for at this time in your life, it could be the exact thing you are looking for.

I encourage you to learn more about eHarmony and get a free trial offer by going to http://datingcoupons.net/freetrials/eharmony.php

Garcinia Cambogia and weight loss

Diet and ExerciseA while back Dr. Oz came out in support of a natural product called Garcinia Cambogia, known to help people lose weight. But is the product any good? If you look on the web, it can be quite confusing trying to separate fact from fiction. So I went to WebMD to try to get to the bottom of things. According to the article I read, Garcinia Combogia does in fact lead to weight loss, but the results are not as dramatic as some would have you believe. It is by no means a miracle drug that will lead to weight loss.

But that doesn’t mean you should disregard it completely. With something as challenging as losing weight, every little bit helps. Moreover, Garcinia Cambogia is taken from a fruit in Indonesia, and as such, it is a natural product that is safe for most people. In fact, it has been used in cooking in Eastern nations for quite some time. It is a far cry from the many weight loss medications which have been shown to be quite harmful to people. So given that it is most likely harmless, can indeed help you with weight loss, and isnt’ all that expensive, I think it’s definitely worth trying if you have been having difficulty burning fat. For the best success, it would probably make sense to combine Garcinia Cambogia with a sensible diet and at least a modest amount of exercise. Even something like walking a couple blocks can help kick-start your weight loss journey.

Finding Garcinia Cambogia shouldn’t be difficult. Sometimes, you may find a health food store carrying it. A more sure-fire approach is to order off the internet. I like to look for high quality supplements that do not have additives or suspicious ingredients. You can check out http://weightlosshca.com for more information on this product.

Is there an Eharmony free trial of any kind?

Is there an Eharmony free trial? I get this question quite a bit, and the answer is yes and no. eHarmony does not have a free trial in the traditional sense, meaning that you will not be able to use all the features of eHarmony after you sign up. However, by joining for free, you can still do quite a lot. What exactly can you do?

  1. eharmony matchmaking systemYou can take a personality test, which is quite comprehensive and gives you a pretty detailed personality profile that is surprisingly accurate. You should expect to spend anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes on the test, since it is very long. The test involves answering dozens of multiple choice questions.
  2. You can create a dating profile and upload pics of yourself. Even though you haven’t paid at this point, I recommend spending some time on this step and developing the best profile possible. Also, make sure you use attractive looking photos for your profile. Ask friends and family for feedback on your profile.
  3. You can start receiving matches, based on eHarmony’s unique algorithm that matches you with people you are most likely to be compatible with. You won’t get a ton of matches at the beginning, since eHarmony’s algorithm is rather picky. It is therefore important to be patient.
  4. You can communicate with your matches using guided communication. This is a step that allows you to send your matches preselected questions and receive answers.

Join eHarmony using this free trial.

There is no expiration for your free account, so you can keep receiving matches and using guided communication for as long as you like. Using a free account is a great way to test-drive eHarmony before spending money for a membership. When you do decide to sign up for a membership, make sure you choose a long term plan, since you will end up saving money on a monthly basis by doing this. Go to the following site for other great coupons from couponleaf.com.
