The Reason Why I Love SwagBucks...

...is because I can buy things that I don't really need, but have desperately wanted, without that whole guilt thing as a side effect (and without fear of my husband confiscating my bank card).

Every week, I earn enough credits with SwagBucks to cash out for Amazon.com gift certificates. Sometimes I save them, sometimes I use them towards an order as I get them. I always tell myself that I'm going to keep saving them to go towards more expensive things that I want, but that never happens. I can't resist the temptation of ordering smaller things and having at them my door in a couple days thanks to free 2 day shipping with my Amazon Prime Membership (which you can now have a free 3 month trial of, I highly recommend it).

Last night I used some of my gift vouchers towards the purchase of a Gorilla Pod, a small, portable and VERY handy universal tripod. I've been wanting one forever, and to be honest, they're really not that expensive. And when I went to the website to purchase mine, they just so happened to be on sale for a little over $17. It will be in my hands tomorrow!

It seems like everybody and their dead great-grandfathers are already members of SwagBucks, but if you're not and want to join, I would love you a lot if you use my referral link to sign up. So I can get more awesome stuff, and earn more gift certificates that I will in turn have contests for here, so you can get more awesome stuff! Yea! (PS, have you signed up for my contest yet? There's a little link for it on the top of the page if you haven't!) Sign up for SwagBucks!


Three little things I am thankful for today
1) The Nor'easter storm that's coming in and canceling my daughter's school tomorrow. Hello, Sleeping In. I've missed you since Sunday. And also I just plain love snow. They're saying that my town will be the hardest hit with up to 18 inches of snow. Heck yes!
2) LOST is on tonight. You wouldn't understand my excitement unless you are also fan.
3) Cheesy. Gordita. Crunch. I love you, Taco Bell.

I've heard of SwagBucks before, but really never got a chance to look. When I get a chance to, I will definitely stop by here and use your link!

Thanks for stopping by my blog too! I didn't know you could cut shapes without using cartridges. I'm excited to watch the YouTube link you gave me. Thanks!

That looks cool but I doubt it could hold my Canon 40D especially with the battery pack on =P

Thanks Kitschalicious!

And Sarah - you're right, I'm not sure about that! I did read a review on Amazon that said that if you've got a heavier camera it may not work. (PS I am envious of your camera! I'm dying for a nicer camera...I want a Nikon D90!)
