How To Stay Warm : I Love My Hoodies!

I have always been a fan of hoodies.  I started to collect them in Canada because of the weather.  Perfect for layering.  The best part of the hoodie is the hood.  Especially in Canada when you needed protection from rain, sleet and snow.  Should be standard issue for the postmen.

Bought my first Lululemon Scuba hoodie 3 months ago.  Totally hooked.  This is a Canadian company.  It spoke to my roots because they know how to keep you warm and stylish 😉my fav hoodie

They are expensive however, they are high quality.  Much rather pay $100 bucks for a decent hoodie that will last me for years.  Crappy hoodies are are not warm and the lululemon hoodies are made well, better fabric…you do get what you pay for

I bought my second one last week and I’m even more impressed.  special edition with reflective material, hidden pockets, vented back vented elbows.

I look at these things as investments.  My hoodie consumption will go down now with these primo pieces in my wardrobe.  comfort and style tackled at once 🙂

My husband bought his first one this week.  He is hooked too  <3


How To Light Your Way : LED Battery Powered Motion Sensor Lights

I’ve recently become a huge fan of these lights – one day I was just thinking to myself: LED lights are cool because they use so little power, motion sensors are cool because they only go on when they  sense human beings nearby (some of the even cooler ones not only sense motion but also heat, so that you don’t have to flail your arms around every time it goes off when you are in the room – it can sense your body temperature and remain on even if you are just sitting there watching TV or typing up a blog post). Someone should combine these things and while they are at it, make them battery powered so that they can be mounted anywhere, easily in seconds. So of course, someone did it.

There’s a number of different styles, these particular ones are great for outdoor use, they only go on when its dark as well. Others are great for mounting under cabinets, or for lighting dark hallways so you don’t have to flip on any lights if you need to get up and traverse the hallway.

If you as me – this is the future of lighting – compact long lasting easily placeable lighting. Now all we need is some super cool designs and here I come, Dwell Magazine…

Designed for indoor or outdoor use, the Fulcrum 20031-101 is a motion sensor and LED porch light in one compact unit. Equipped with six LEDs, the porch light can detect movement within a 25-foot range and at a 100-degree angle to provide instant security to any area in or around your home. The light also rotates so its cool, bright white light can illuminate all dark areas. To preserve battery power, photocell technology prevents the light from turning on during the daytime. The porch light requires no hardwiring and comes with all necessary mounting hardware. It runs on four C batteries not included.

How To Make Money Off Your Library Through

Recycle Your Library

Take a look around – do you really need all of those books? Sure you read them and they look great on the shelf – and seeing them all around you makes you feel smarter doesn’t it? Your friends and family all probably marvel that you’ve read all of those books! But its spring cleaning time and you’re thinking, maybe I can do without a few of those. But before you throw them in the garage sale box, first check out the Amazon Marketplace. You’d be surprised how much you can make back from those dusty tomes

You’ve probably noticed a button which says “Have one to sell – Sell On Amazon” when you are surfing books on Amazon –  if you do, you can list your own books for sale and unlike eBay and those other sites, its costs you nothing to list your books and they even throw in the shipping costs. Beware though that you can sell your book at any price, even a penny, it is usually not worth selling unless they go for at least $2, since Amazon does take a commission on each sale.

Grab a stack of books and a coffee, sit down at your computer, and start searching. Here is a sure fire way of pricing your book so that it sells: price it exactly 2 cents below the lowest price, as long as that price is more than $2 – and the next time someone is looking to buy that book, yours will be sold. You’ll get an email with the details, Amazon will credit your account with the funds and shipping, minus their commission (which is one of the reasons why its not worth selling anything under two dollars)

You never know what you might find: I dug up an old Teenage Mutant Ninjas comic book anthology which sold for $75 (its now worth $100)

Bag Off!

Bag Off!

So our town recently outlawed plastic bags. That’s right – here we are in the middle of a recession – retailers are hurting like crazy and the local government decides to just make it harder for everyone by making people think ahead and have reusable bags with them BEFORE they head the the store. No more impulse purchases – unless of course you want to walk out of the store balancing all of your items in your arms. Well, i guess they at least let us BUY a paper bag for a dime.

Well, personally, I think that its a dumb idea, any kind of government edict to try and get people to chance behavior will likely just annoy people in the end. Of course, on the flip side, every time a government makes a boneheaded move like this, its a golden opportunity for creative entrepreneurs to do something about it.

Need cash? Stand outside your local Target and sell bags for a nickel. Or even better how about a service which rents bags? Remember, as Will Powers (or someone) once famously said “Every problem is an opportunity in disguise”
