Easy Personal Gift Ideas!


It seems like everyone is plugged in lately. Most people I know can use some type of digital storage. Why not give fun and easy personalized holiday gifts? From now until the end of the year, Pexagontech.com is offering 20% off several of their fun digital storage items.

A personalized thumb drive is an easy way to access and transfer digital photos or music from one computer to another. They are super easy to customize too – there are 14 colors available and it comes with FREE laser engraving! You can also pick from a ready made theme Pexagon.com has created. The thumb drives are available with up to 16GB in capacity and start at just $7.99 (after discount). They also have environment-friendly wooden USB flash drives and business card flash drives as well.

But they don’t just have flash drives, they have other great gift ideas such as customized 10 in 1 laser knife tools, pens, media card readers and all of the accessories to go along with them!

Making the deal even better – Pexagontech.com has fast turn around times, no set up fees and no minimum orders on a bunch of their products.

It’s not too late to get a personalized gift! Check out Pexagontech.com for some great ideas :)


Easy Picture Posting!

There is a new site called acobox.com that collects, hosts and screens pictures for bloggers that are FREE to use! They even guarantee all of the images are properly licensed and copyrighted so you don’t have to. You can say good-bye to downloading, optimizng and re-sizing blog pictures and searching for something that fits. Acobox does that all for you! You can easily search the galleries for a picture you want to use, choose the size of the image that works best for your blog and simply cut and paste the code into your blog! So easy.

I signed up for an account today to check it out. I clicked around looking for some pretty landscape pictures and pulled this up in a few seconds. It took me just a few more seconds to add the code to this post:

Box Tops For Education

I love buying General Mills brand items for a few reasons.

#1 – They are great about providing coupons for their products.
#2 – They have the Box Tops For Education program.

If you have school age children, please make sure you are clipping these box tops. It’s free money for their school. If you don’t have school age children, clip them anyway and give them to a child you know! (If anyone out there is willing to share, let me know :) )

Here are two more great ways to earn money for your school. When you shop online in their marketplace, a percentage of your purchase will be donated to your school when you shop at over 70 participating stores. These are stores you may shop at any way. With the holidays quickly approaching, why not get what you need and help out a great cause at the same time? Through the Reading Room, you can shop online at Barnes & Noble and up to 6% of your purchase goes back to your school.

Kailani at An Island Life is having a great giveaway right now. She’s giving away a $50 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble for one lucky winner courtesy of Boxtops for Education! Head over to her site for details on how you can enter to win.


I love this site. Blurb helps you create a book out of your blog! What a great way to keep your memories accessible. I think I’ll make a new book for each year as a keepsake.
