Finding a Good-Fitting Undies is Quite a Challenge

Finding a good fit of undies here in America is a bit challenging for me.  I have to buy my size from  teen section, same thing applies for any clothing.  These are some of the lucky ones that fit  and I got them on sale at Sear's.
 Love these set of boxer that I got for under  8 bucks.  The set of brassiers were  really good priced  too.
Sometimes it is embrassing when a cashier look at you and  kind of saying, is this for you or your daughter?  But there's nothing I can do really but to shop at teen section.  I miss shopping in Asia because everything there is mostly tailored in my size.  

Hanging Doors

Hubby and I seldom watch TV  but when we do, we watch DIY  shows and those renovation-related shows like the  Flip of Flop, Fixer  Uppoer and the likes.  I love when they use hanging doors because it looks so  unique.  Not many houses has hanging doors so it really captivates my attention.  Watching this kind of shows really gives us ideas what to do with our house  in case we ever   renovate  or upgrade our home.  I hope that we can get that money available to be able to  do some renovation, our house is screaming for it.

Christmas Gift Ideas

Here are some gift ideas you might want to consider to give this Christmas.   I am putting some of the things that  I think you might like.  
If you have love ones with long hair and they love  some high quality hair accessory, I would recommend  some of the Lilla Rose Flexi clips.  They  are made very well and you can  have it according to  your hair need.  
For those  wine lovers out there, Ozeri has  different  kinds of electric wine bottle opener that you can choose from.
For those who have   sons and would love to get them high quality clothing,  Warrior Poet has them.
There are so many  things you can get your love one during  the  Christmas  season.  I love giving  gifts to my kuds that they can really use.

Officemate OIC Breast Cancer Awareness Hole Punch #ProductReview #ShopletReviews

October is breast cancer awareness month so we are participating by sharing products that are  designed to  support the breast awareness cause.  I thank God that my family is not affected by this dreaded disease but I can sympathize with families who are because we lost loved ones too due to  different kind of cancer.  Shoplet has partnered with  Officemate to bring awareness to Breast cancer with a product  which some portion  of the proceeds will go  to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
 My daughter is in the age now where she is establishing her personality.  She is not the most organized  person but  I admire her organization skill  when it comes to all her academic stuff.  She love  to organize all her supplies.  There are times that her brother is now even allowed to borrow her  favorite pen or her  office scissors.  Having said that, she wishes that she has her own puncher because she keep borrowing her Dad's.  Now her wish has came true, I got her this contemporary Officemate 3-hole punch from Shoplet.   This Officemate OIC Breast Cancer Awareness Hole Punch is $15.32  but if you buy it in bulk, you'll also get a discount.
I love that there is a name tag slot on the lest corner, you can personalized it with the name of the person whom you are giving it to or the name of the person you are honoring.  I also put a little not at the bottom of it so she'll be reminded of how much Mom love her.

My Quick & Easy Guide On How To Save Money In Your Apartment

If you live in an apartment, you’ll be paying a monthly rent. To pay rent on time, you’ll need to either make more money or save money. Well, here are four ways you can save money in your apartment:

Only Buy Things You Have To Buy

When you rent an apartment, there are a couple of furnishing options available to you. You can either buy one that’s fully furnished, or one that isn’t. Most brand new apartments can be bought off plan, like the ones shown here This does mean you will have to buy everything you need, but you will have saved a considerable amount. If you do buy a furnished place, your home is already full of the furniture that you need. However, some people tend to get rid of this furniture and buy stuff that they like more. While this may end up making your home look better, it can cost you money. It doesn’t make sense to buy a brand new sofa when you already have one. My advice is only to buy things if you have to. If there isn’t a bed, then you have to buy a bed. If there are no dining room chairs for the table, you’ll need to buy some. But, if everything is furnished and fine, you can save money by leaving things as they are.

Turn Your Heating Off

In some cases, landlords won’t include gas/heating in your monthly rent. So, you’ll have to pay for it separately. To save money on your heating bills, you can do one simple thing. All you need to do is turn your heating off. Put on some extra layers and close your windows if you’re cold. Only turn the heating on when you truly need it. Apartments aren’t as big as houses, so they don’t tend to get as cold.

Make Use Of Your Windows

A simple way you can save money is by making good use of your windows. But, what do I mean by this? I’m saying that you should allow as much sunlight into your apartment as possible. Apartments tend to be very open-plan, so, your living room window can also light up your dining area and kitchen. You should make sure you have your blinds and curtains open, so as much light as possible can come in. If your apartment is lit by natural light, you don’t need to turn any lights on. Thus, you can cut down considerably on electrical bills. Usually, landlords won’t include electricity in your monthly rent. So, it makes sense to think of ways you can cut down on using electricity.

Look For An Internet, Phone & TV Bundle

One of the things that can take a toll on your finances is entertainment. These days, people will always buy a subscription TV package. This means paying a fair amount of money each month. But, you also have to pay your phone and internet bill as well. If you pay all of these separately, it can soon add up. Especially if you’re buying from different providers. My top tip is to look for the cheapest package that includes all three things. You can save a lot of money if you bundle them all together and commit to one provider. Plus, some will offer special rates for the first 12 months, so look out for that. Finding a good internet, phone and TV package can save you heaps of cash in your apartment.

How to Save Money On Your Next Property Purchase

If you are thinking about moving home in the next twelve months or so, then you are probably worrying about the sheer amount of money it’s going to cost. However, there are some clever ways of spending less money and still ending up in your dream property. I thought I would take a look at a few ideas and share them with you today.

Renovate for profit

First of all, take a look at your current home and identify any areas that could be improved. Look at your bathroom, kitchen, and also consider a loft conversion if you have enough money put aside. Now, while it might seem silly to spend a lot of your savings on renovating a property you will be moving out of, it can make sense. There are specific areas of every home that can increase your property value. That means that you should get a return on your initial investment, and can get more money for a higher deposit on your next home.

Make it a long-term move

One of the biggest costs of moving home is the enormous range of fees and charges you will have to pay. Unfortunately, there’s no way of getting around them - it comes with the territory. However, if you want to save money, make sure your next move is to a long-term home. That way you won’t have to pay the same batch of fees a couple of years down the line on another move. In fact, planning for a long-term period in any property tends to be the wisest move going, as you will accrue more profit.

Be prepared to travel

Why buy a home in a city centre when you can live in the suburbs for far less? City life tends to be more expensive - not just for house prices, but for living costs, too. Living outside of the hustle and bustle of the city will involve more money spent on travel, but it’s also cheaper, safer, and quieter. And, when you consider you could get a four bedroom home for the same cost as a two-bed apartment, it makes complete sense.

Research your mortgage options

There are so many different types of mortgage available that it can be confusing to choose the right one. Often, people will just go down the route of choosing the loan that is easiest for them to get, rather than looking at alternatives. So, make sure that you compare mortgage rates online and don’t be afraid to ring up lenders directly. They might be able to offer you a better deal, which will save you a lot of money over a 25-year period.

Look at your credit score

Your credit score is another area to look at because it will impact on the cost of your home loan. The better your credit, the more likely it is you will be offered a low-interest deal. And, of course, that’s going to save you a great deal of money when it comes to mortgage interest payments. Fix any problems before you apply, and do what you can to improve your rating. You will reap the benefits, and it is a lot more simple to do than you might think.
