Feeling down? Try this!

The term “Retail Therapy” has been around since the ’80s.  Media outlets like The Guardian and The New York Times have written about it.  It has even been the subject of scientific research studies.  But what is it?  Is it just a label manufactured by the capitalist retail chains in hopes of justifying unabashed shopping sprees by consumers?  Or is it a legitimate form of healing one’s mood?

As the Bible says, “By their fruit ye shall know them” (Matt 7:16).  In other words, and as my friend used to explain that verse to me, “The proof is in the pudding”  Ok, so maybe Saint Matthew wasn’t talking about shopping, but I believe the principle applies.

miriam Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

holiday center All You Need for the Holidays in One Stop!As soon as Halloween ends, people all over start planning for Christmas, even thought it’s still almost two months away. Why is this? Is it because we’re all so excited for Santa? Do we really want to hear Christmas music played on the radio for two straight months? I think it’s because Christmas is such a huge event, it takes a long time to get everything ready for the big day. There’s the decorations, gifts, cards, vacation plans, food, and all sorts of parties to plan. Wouldn’t it be great if there was one place that could help you with all of this?

Many Thanks

Many Thanks

As we see the fall leaves falling off the trees, and feel the chill in the air, we know winter is around the corner. This is the time of year when we take some time to reflect on all the many things we have to be thankful for. We do what we can to spend time with loved ones, and share in old memories, while making new ones. We also start thinking about what gifts to buy for those same people. One company is giving you a few more things to be thankful for.

Making the Most of Your PC

miriam Monday, October 22nd, 2012

I’ve heard it estimated that over 365 million people around the world own a computer, including desktops, laptops, Apples and PCs. Although that number sounds very impressive, it will surely continue to rise in this technology driven society. Computers are simply everywhere, and are needed for school, work, communication and recreation. Unfortunately, computers indefinitely have problems, but most of us don’t know how to fix them.

cell phones for soldiersPhone companies have been around for nearly 140 years. Back then, it was an amazing feat to hear a voice talking on the other end of the phone line. Fast forward to the present day, and phone companies provide you with land line or cell phone service, high speed internet service, high definition picture taking capabilities, GPS navigation, and much more. Although this list is impressive, I found one phone company that’s doing even more.

Do It Yourself

Do It Yourself

In general, computers are expensive to purchase, and often times even more expensive to maintain. Technology moves so fast these days, it’s hard to keep up on the latest and greatest when it comes to speed, ram, memory and other such things. If you take your computer to a repair center, the cost of such repairs or upgrades could be quite high. Wouldn’t it be easier if you could do the repairs yourself?

Love your Gadgets AND the Earth?

miriam Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

recycled gadgetsIt’s no secret that recently technology has encouraged the collection and consumption of electronics of every shape and size. Everywhere you look, you see people on their hand held devices checking email, playing games, chatting with friends, and making phone calls. It seems like those of us that don’t have any of these gadgets are in the minority now. This technology craze has also created a division between those who thrive on it, and those who are more focused on simple living and earth friendly practices. Is is possible to satisfy both sides of this issue?

Halloween Dress up with your Pooch!

Super Puppy

Super Puppy

When my husband and I had been married for almost a year, he began talking about getting a dog. I had never owned a dog, and although I wasn’t opposed to the idea of owning a dog, I wasn’t sure if I could ever learn to really love a dog. Low and behold, less than 2 years later, we were the proud owners of an adorable 6 week old mastiff/boxer mix puppy. We named her Maya and she instantly became the center of our world. When Halloween came around, I became one of those people who I used to make fun of that dressed their dog up in a costume. She won first prize in a doggie costume contest and we have dressed her up ever since.

The Brilliance of Layaway

Growing up in the nineties, I knew what the word layaway meant, but I never saw anyone actually use it. My parents were the type who either bought something when they needed it, or didn’t buy it at all. Some adults I knew would put things on credit cards, and then pay them off later. Unfortunately, there are negatives associated with both of these scenarios. With my parents, they often times bought things when they couldn’t afford them, or missed out on deals because they didn’t have enough money at the time. Those who bought things on credit ended up paying more for them than their upfront cost. Now that I’m adult, I see that layaway is the perfect answer to both of these scenarios.
