Hulu vs. Amazon vs. Netflix

Posted on July 9th, 2013 by Discount Debbie

These three companies have revolutionized the way we watch tv and movies. They are a great alternative to cable if you want to save on that bill.  A lot of people are ditching their cable and satellite for these great alternatives. You don’t have to miss any of your favorite shows and even news is being streamed live from their websites.

However more and more of these types of entertainment websites are popping up and that may have your head spinning. What’s the difference? Which should you choose? Here is our breakdown of the different companies and what they offer.

Netflix
The streaming option is the cheapest at $8 a month. With this option you can watch anything in their instant library. This option isn’t really great for new shows, but it’s awesome for older ones.

Hulu and Hulu Plus
Hulu is free and plus is $8 a month. Free is very limited with fewer episodes of shows, but plus is awesome for all the new shows. You can usually watch TV shows the day after they air, so no wait time. Hulu is terrible for movies though.

Amazon and Amazon Prime
Amazon is my favorite because this is where we rent all of our movies. Redbox is definitely cheaper by $2-$3, but if you are a perpetual late returner, this option is better. Plus there is no monthly cost. Amazon prime is $79 a year which is around $7 a month. With prime you are able to watch instant movies, although their library isn’t very large. You can still watch shows on both, but with regular Amazon you’ll have to pay for the shows.

All of these companies have their pros and cons. But even if you got all three, they would beat a lot of cable and satellite services. It’s definitely worth looking into if you want to save money off your entertainment bill.

What Do You Do With Coconut Oil?

Posted on January 25th, 2013 by Discount Debbie

 

 

“Mommy, do you want some coffee?” (My 4-year old daughter, holding her toy tea cup)
Me: “Sure! What did you put in it?” (because she knows I don’t drink my coffee black)
My daughter (smiling): “Coconut oil!”

 

That’s a true story. And, that conversation has taken place (just as stated above) on multiple occasions. But, don’t blame my daughter… I started adding about a tablespoon of coconut oil to my coffee when I was working on losing the last few lingering pregnancy pounds a few months ago. Apparently, taking 3-4 tablespoons of coconut oil per day (one tablespoon before each meal) helps boost metabolism to burn more calories throughout the day. It also fills you up so that you end up not eating as much. While I am still looking to drop a few more pounds, I put the coconut oil in my coffee more because I really do enjoy the flavor and because of the other health benefits it offers.

Benefits Of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is naturally antibacterial and microbial, which essentially means it is a natural antibiotic. It’s also full of disease-fighting antioxidants. As I mentioned above, it helps boost metabolism for weight loss. It lowers the risk of diabetes, heart disease and improves cholesterol levels. There is SO MUCH more. But, that gives you the tip of the iceberg on this amazing and delicious superfood.

Other Uses for Coconut Oil

Cooking: I cook with coconut oil just about every day. I use it in place of butter (sometimes along with butter) and in place of any other oil or fat. I use it to saute veggies and to sear beef or chicken; and, of course, I bake with it!

Hair Conditioner: Coconut oil is great for deep conditioning. The fatty acids in the oil penetrate easily into the hair and make for better conditioning than you can get from most store-bought hair conditioners. Coconut oil has become my hair conditioner :)

Skin Care: The other thing my daughter may think everyone else does is put coconut oil on boo boos and bites. Its healing and anti-inflammatory properties help skin to be replenished and restored. I also just use it as lotion when my skin is dry.

There are so many more uses. But, we can always talk more about those later over some coffee! 😉

 

What do you do with your coconut oil?
