Pricebenders Penny Auctions?

Welcome friends old and new! 🙂

If you have not been keeping up lately with the latest new trending penny auction–you’re sadly missing out.

Today I invite you to learn a little more about Pricebenders and how it works.

“Pricebenders™ is a section at that features live “penny auctions.”

Pricebenders™ Auctions deliver brand new (and, occasionally, refurbished), brand name merchandise, gift cards, and more at prices that are far below typical retail. In fact, prices start at just $.01 (yes, just one cent!). With each bid received, the price increases by just one cent. The final bidder may then buy the item for the ending price (usually a fraction of the normal retail price). Check out our latest winners and the incredible deals being won HERE.”

To bid, TripleClicks uses what’s formerly known as “Tcredits”. These Tcredits are available in a variety of different packs of 1, 10, 20, 50, and 200…and for as little as $.29 apiece! Once you’ve got your Tcredits you can immediately start bidding.  Be the final bidder and win the item. Easy Peezy! :-p

Oh and pssst–just as a side note, even when you don’t win…you win.

Why, might you ask?

Because for every bid, you earn 5 Member Reward Points (MRP). MRPs can be redeemed on tens of thousands of different TripleClicks products and services and music downloads. Each PB auction also has a “PTP” (Pick The Price) contest. Simply predict the correct final price of an auction (or be the closest if there are no exacts) and BINGO–you’ll win a share of the PTP Zackpot and a cool new badge to sport on your T-connect page (also provided to you upon joining to play). Play for just one TCredit per entry/auction. No purchase necessary to win. Plus, each entry earns you 5 Member Rewards Points! Hundreds of chances to win weekly and there are no win limits.

In need of a Tcredit to enter?

No problem! You can enter our T-Time drawing, where every hour they give away 60 FREE Tcredits to 30 lucky winners (720 lucky winners each day)! Become a wave 3 member to receive 5 FREE Tcredits monthly; purchase TCredits for as little as $.29 each; or you can have one FREE TCredit instantly added to your account by sending a postcard or letter to SFI’s offices. IMPORTANT! Limit one TCredit from postcard credited per customer per day. Please include your name and TripleClicks Member ID number or e-mail address.

Important Reminder: It’s vital that you read all of their FAQs before you join any Pricebenders™ auctions. Make sure you understand how bidding works, as well as all restrictions, deadlines, etc., and Pricebenders Rules & Policies before jumping in.

I hope this has clarified a few things or maybe even opened a few new eyes to the thrill of participating in penny auctions! 😀

Thanks for reading and stay blessed! 🙂

Best regards,

“Black Friday” -Financial Madness!?

Boy oh Boy oh GIRL! 😮 *giggles*

Black Friday shopping frenzies

“B.F” shoppers…please, please, PLEASE! This year be CAREFUL for a number of reasons!! Be wise in your spending, surroundings, item purchases, and of course of the little ones that MAY be out shopping as well with their parents. I truly hope they stay in this year, because I know this is the time of year in which people get stomped on in the aisles. (Lol) Well now and of course around Christmas. [Haha]

  • Avoid irritable looking shoppers (they’re careless & will knock you over) LOL!
  • Don’t allow the sales person to “over sell you” on flashy items! 
  • Do your homework on bargains at different stores for particular items
  • Never buy what you don’t need (black friday or not) haha
  • Never be too shy to check clearance racks

Since we’re talking shopping you know I have to discuss Tripleclicks. I wouldn’t be true to myself if I didn’t [Haha]. If you’re big on stylish jewelry for amazing prices, “Leahs Gifts” store is the place to go for sure! I’ve ordered from her a few times and o.m.g, the compliments would not stop coming from friends and family. Check her out and surely you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. The wedding rings especially, oh man. Sometimes she leaves little surprises with your order 😉 . Got to love that! 

Enjoy the  shopping madness everyone and save yourself the hassle, sleep in and order a few things online. Tons of places to choose from! ^_^

How to Wear a Saree (Sari)

How to wear a Sari?

Sorry…I was typing too loud. 🙂 Greetings fellow on lookers! :-p   A request was made by a good friend of mine and I thought…hey why not? [Lol] Personally, I feel the garments are absolutely beautiful! I really love the variety in color, texture, and style! Cultures are a wonderful thing that I respect and adore so much. So on that note, today I will be sharing something I learned in 12 simple steps. ^_^    

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Step 1:

Be sure to have a fitted shirt of some sort for underneath. The heels/shoes you wear play a big role in how the saree falls, and how ever much coverage you may want or need. Hold the inner end of the saree with your left hand.

Step 2:

Making sure the saree is at floor level, tuck the top border of the inner end into the petticoat.

Step 3:

Then pass the saree around to the front maintaining the same height.

Step 4:

Keep the top edge leveled and tuck it in a little to keep the saree firm.

Step 5:

Start folding the pleats from the right holding, then tuck the edge of the saree.

Step 6:

Hold the pleats together and adjust the height so that the bottom edge is at floor level.

Step 7:

Tuck the pleats into the petticoat. The pleats should fall straight.

Step 8:

Bring the saree around.

Step 9:

Hold it in your right hand and pass it to your left, arranging the border evenly.

Step 10-11:

Repeat step 9.

Step 12:

Drape on your left shoulder allowing the end piece to fall casually.


Green Cleaning Tips-Keeping It “Naturally” Friendly!

Hi my faithful readers! 🙂

I’d just like to touch base on this very common topic that I felt I personally should highlight on my blog. Now I’ve been making some minuet but rather effective changes in my lifestyle regarding the way I clean and what I’m using, the way I consume my meals and transportation of course. Baby steps baby steps 😉 [lol]. For a few reasons…

  1. Self/loved ones->As a parent, child to two awesome parents, grandchild, so on & so fourth…I owe it to not just them, but myself to remain healthy & alive for as long as possible. Mainly for my amazing child 🙂
  2. Active->I miss playing sports.
  3. Health->The majority of those I love and care about at home have asthma (toxic chemicals being inhaled are not a good look)

Now that I’ve touched base on the top main reasons, I will continue by sharing a few cool, easy, and low costly ways to go green & still clean in between. 😉 As I’m sure you all know and have heard…

  • Vinegar works wonderfully as an all purpose cleaner, dilute it with a proportioned amount of water in a spray bottle and you’re good to go. It’s a great and natural deodorizer and disinfectant. (Apple cider vinegar diluted with water of course, is also great on co-washing your scalp;roots & hair! Be sure to do a test on a small area first to avoid any changes in color. I caution you that improperly diluted vinegar is acidic and can eat away at tile grout and marble surfaces. Works amazingly in bathrooms, kitchens, and the laundry room. To find out in what other ways be sure to check out: (
  • Lemon Juice is another great way to get rid of soap scum and water deposits
  • Baking Soda reminds me of comet or ajax that come sin that powdered form? Yeah, awesome substitute!

There are many more options left available to you, but unfortunately I won’t be able to express that here at the moment. In the meantime, you can check out my sub-domain with wix, and click my other blog there for the details. Sooner than later I’ll be able to blog here freely. Until then…… 🙂
