Spicing Up The Bedroom Inexpensively

Posted on July 22nd, 2014 by Discount Debbie

One of the hardest parts of keeping a marriage flavorful is adding a little spice to it. It doesn’t take expensive (and sometimes questionable) contraptions or even a yoga class to achieve this marital seasoning. In fact it takes less than most people would think.

The Marital Fun Map
Keep a map of your state or your country in your bedroom over your bed. If you are world travelers, keep a map of the world over your bed instead. Using pins mark all the places you have celebrated your union in a physical manner. Neither the map nor the pins will be very expensive. Every time you look at the map it will bring back good memories and perhaps inspire you to make a few more. Plan family vacations in a way to add more pins to your map. It doesn’t matter if you are driving three hours. Every new place counts.

The New Home Tradition

It’s important to make a new home your own and one of the best ways to do that is to create good memories in it. Make lots of good memories in every room, the garage, and the backyard. You could even create good memories in every closet, the basement, and the attic. The object of this marital tradition is to create many, many good memories in your new home, in as many places as possible.

The Innuendo Game

This is a simple game really and only works well if you have no children or small children who have no clue there could be another meaning to what your saying. Most days at home with our children (though we love them dearly) are mood killers. On those days we try to speak only in innuendo. It’s fun to think up new and creative innuendos. It’s also a good way to relieve stress as a couple because it can get downright funny. By the end of the day you’ll either be in the mood or in a good mood from laughing so much.

 How do you keep the spice in your marriage without spending much money?

How to Find the Best Deals on Amazon

Posted on July 21st, 2014 by Discount Debbie

amazon deals

When buying online I usually go clicking to Amazon first. It’s an easy page to navigate and has almost anything I could want to buy. It also has a number of ways to help me save money while I’m spending money. Here are a few that I use regularly.

Today’s Deals

If you want to find out what is on sale on Amazon go to the top of the page, under your search bar and click on today’s deals. This page will show you what’s on sale. They have what they call Lightening Deals, which means they are for a few hours only. You can see what is coming up and what percentage you could save during that sale.  They have coupons. They even have local deals listed for those of us that want to do something fun in our community.

Reviews

Read the reviews  for your product before buying it. Aside from the fact that some are down right entertaining, it should give you some perspective of what others thought of your particular product, and therefore what you or the person you are buying it for may think of it.

Search Under A Dollar

If you are looking for a new accessory or a new e-book, but don’t want to spend too much money, try using the amount you want to spend in your search. Amazon will respond to cost sensitive searches. The other way of doing this is looking up an item, and then picking a price range on the left hand side. Then up pops variations of the product I can afford.

Amazon Prime

Register (and pay) for an Amazon Prime membership. It will allow you to watch television shows for free as part of the package deal. It also has free two day shipping, free e-book use, and streaming music.

Can You Afford a New Apartment

Posted on July 18th, 2014 by Discount Debbie

 

Most apartment dwellers would like to move into a nicer apartment at one time or another. The question is can they afford to do so. Here are a few facts and tips that could make your transition into a nicer home easier and more affordable.

How Much Do You Have To Earn?

new apartment

Most apartment places have a minimum amount of money that you need to earn monthly in order to move in. This is to ensure that you can afford to pay them and your bills at the same time. Sometimes you need to earn twice what the rent is. In other cases you need to earn three times the cost of your rent. Before emotionally investing in a particular property make sure you make enough money to live there.

Fees

There are usually three types of fees that are connected with getting an apartment. These are the security deposit, the application fee, and pet fees if applicable. First check to see if there are any specials at your apartment complex of choice. Some places may have a $200 deposit, but may be running a move-in special of a $99 deposit. Next, check to see how your payments can be broken up. For example some places will allow you to pay the pet deposit in two monthly installments. Third, the application fee is usually per adult. The usual fee is about $35. That’ doesn’t seem like much, but doubled it’s $70. It’s best to plan accordingly.

Rent Specials

Some apartments run rent specials. If you bring in a certain ad or list a certain website as the place you heard about the apartment complex you could get a discount on your first month’s rent. Another special that some apartments offer is a referral special. You get a discount on your rent when someone moving into the apartment complex let’s the management know you referred them.
