How To Save Your Sanity & Money This Holiday Season!

The most stressful time of the year is during the holidays. Trying to decide what to buy everyone and having the time or money to get those items becomes a constant worry that can wreak havoc on our normal routines. Why do we get so caught up in the hustle and bustle? It's time for a change! Not only do I have the answer to how we can enjoy this time of year, I even have some great gift ideas to tell you about too!

We live in a day and age where technology is right at our fingertips at any given time. It's time to catch up with our shopping habits! What sounds better: Sitting at home in your pj's with a warm cup of cocoa or standing out in the freezing cold to get a good deal? We now have the option to get good deals and do it from home without fighting the crowds. Online shopping is growing in numbers but most people don't know how to do it and save more money than you could imagine, sometimes even making money to buy products!!! Check out this deal to see an example: Get Paid to Purchase Olay and Venus Gift sets from Walmart.com.

The number one thing to remember is don't go directly to the store website to make your purchase. Why, you ask? Because there are wonderful websites like zuuzs.com that offer cash back on your purchases! If the store is not available for cash back, you can shoot them a  message and request that they add that store-chances are that they will gladly get it for you if they can. I choose zuuzs.com because not only do I earn cash back from my purchases, I earn 40% of the cash back that my friends earn and 25% of the cash back that their friends earn! The potential to earn is limitless!!! Another bonus: zuuzs is offering double cash back through the rest of the holiday season!!!

With zuuzs.com, each store has a certain percentage of cash back that you can earn up to on your purchases. You would select that store on zuuzs.com and it will take you to the store website. This is now where you will make your purchase and your account with zuuzs will be credited with cash back. Be sure that when you are on the stores website, look for any special promo codes or coupon codes that you can enter during checkout and save money or get free shipping. This is probably the number one way people lose money when shopping online.
Also look for any offers to get free items with your purchase. You may be able to get a free gift with a $25 value if you just spend $5 more!

Now that you have the basics to get started, let's put your skills to the test! Here are a few of my favorite gift idea's for this year. Check them out and get your shopping taken care of without stressing anymore this season! Be sure to share this with your friends to pass along the blessing of a peace of mind this holiday season! Happy Shopping!

Traveling with the Ghost Adventurers

Traveling with the Ghost Adventurers

Content by Mitch Osborne

It's always fun when you can combine multiple hobbies and loves into one package. That's exactly what I get to do at least once a week if not more when I turn on direct.tv to The Travel Channel and watch Ghost Adventures.

Okay, so Ghost Adventures is not a traditional travel show, but it is a show that takes us to unique and intriguing places all over the United States. This works for me because traveling is one of the most cherished things I enjoy doing and in addition, I'm curious about ghosts and hauntings, which is the focus of the Ghost Adventures television show.

Sometimes I've actually enjoyed the history and culture of a place the series goes to more than the investigation into whatever strange happenings have been taking place. After all, the show has visited mansions, plantations, penitentiaries, castles, missions, old theaters, mines, hospitals, and more.

The history is rich because they always te…
