Stroller Search

As I posed on an earlier post, we recently took a family vacation to Disney World.  If I could have changed one thing it would have been our stroller.  Our double stroller was obviously not designed for getting on and off buses, spending hours upon end pushing it and not comfortable for the kids after a long period of time.

Once we got back from our vacation, I began my search for new stroller because our old one was just about expired. I started paying attention to what others had while we were on vacation and the InStep brands kept rising to the top.

I found the following site very useful in my search.  Although it is simple, it provided me with the links and information I needed to purchase the product online and I got a discount.

Check out InStep Jogging Stroller if you are in the market for a stroller.  They have both single and double models.

Product Review – Movie Rocket

Part of living frugal is trying to find deals that will allow you to pinch a penny here and there.  I wrote in one of my earlier articles that  I have been using NetFlix for my movie rentals to cut down on buying movies via pay per view.  I think I have ran across something that is going to allow me to do away with NetFlix completely.

A new software is out called Movie Rocket.  I bought it earlier tonight and so far I am impressed with what all they have to offer for the price.  The price of the product is a one time fee of $49.99 with no re-occuring monthly fees.  Doing some quick math, I think this product will more than pay for itself in a few months.

My plan is to download the movies to my computer and use my DVD burner to put it on a cd and then watch on my TV.  I have already downloaded two movies and followed this process… They are crystal clear and I am very pleased.

If you are like me and like to watch movies, this product is one I would recommend taking a look at.  There are several of these types of products on the market, but this is the best one I have found.  They seem to have much more of what I was looking for and their download speeds are amazing.

Check them out for yourself.  They allow you to search through their database of movies for free so you can decide if it would be a good purchase for you.

Child Safety Seats

I know that this is a bit off the path for a frugal living blog, but I wanted to share a device that we have discovered that puts our mind at ease with our child riding in a booster seat. Is this frugal living? Probably not, but I refuse to try to pinch a penny if it impacts my children's safety in any way. Anyway, I submitted this article on the internet because we are really happy with what we found and I wanted to share our experience with everyone...

Living Frugal – Paying Off Debt

books for various types of things. I ended up at the Living On A Dime website.(I know this was probably not a "frugal living" thing to do), but I read through the site and found a couple of books that I wanted to get. They seemed reasonably priced to me, so I purchased a couple of them to try and further my education on the whole frugal living aspect. I am not sure if I have mentioned it or not, but I am a computer nerd so typically eBooks (Electronic books delivered via download) appeal to me...
