Hey Everyone, it’s been a while but I have a few things I’d like to share with you. I’m frugal. I am always searching for deals and I love free offers! Hey I have a family of seven so it’s always a help to save, save, save! So here’s some of the things I’ve found that helps me to save, and a few sites offering free great things.
Goodwill Auctions! – Yes Goodwill has auctions! Can you believe it? There are some great deals on there too! There are so many things on this site it’s amazing! So get your product wish list and check and see if anything is on there.One item that has been on my wish list for years was the iRobot Vacuum cleaner, Roomba. Guess what? Roombas can be found on Goodwill auctions too! As always, when buying online check the shipping costs first before you make your bid and include that in the total cost. If you bid .99 cents on a set of kitchen towels and the shipping is $19.99, you’ve paid $20.98 for that thrifty set of kitchen towel! Doh! Shipping shouldn’t be that extreme but I’ve seen it happen with auction sites. That actually happened to me in my early 2001 ebay days. Goodwill Auctions will not accept returns so buyer beware! Read, read, read, and research the item before you bid!I will search the item at various sites to see what it costs new and how outdated the item on auction is. You can set your highest bid price and let it go. You’ll get a notification if you are outbid, or if you have won. There are various Goodwill stores around the nation that list things for auction so each store has it’s own guidelines and shipping will vary. Sometimes you can request to pick up an item. You can search items at a specific store and set up a personal shopper that will send you emails on new listings on the items you are looking for. So far I’ve gotten a nice Sound Bar wit sub-woofer, 3 Roombas, a Video Recording Drone, PlayStation, Hooked on French for the little ones (that one was incomplete), a Ninja Blender, and a Polaroid Cube. So it you see t********6, lol that’s probably me!
Honey – Not local delicious honey made by wonderful bees, but this is a Chrome add on. It helps you save money while you shop online. If you are like me, you like any additional discount off of an item you can get. Honey helps you get and apply those coupon codes easy! No more searching online for a coupon code! Well I still search valid sites like RetailMeNot, but we no longer have to search the web and follow links that lead to outdated coupon codes. Yay!! Try it, it’s free! When you do sign up share your referral link like I did! Btw the Honey link is a referral link if you didn’t catch what I did there. 😉

Free Personalities Tests – This is nothing new but it always interests me to find out more about people, my family especially. So last week we had an assignment to research each other’s personality profile. What’s a Personality Profile? Well it’s a way to discover more about yourself and possibly feel understood. The personality tests asks you questions about yourself. It’s not based off of looks or trends, instead it goes deeper into your preferences in life, how you think, live, and react to others. The test then reveals your results in a 4 letter personality type code that explains you. Carl Jung the author of Psychological Types in 1921 placed people into different types of psychological functions. Later, Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers added to his theory and developed their own 16 psychological personality types showcasing 16 personalities. I think you might be surprised how accurate the test is. The key is to be brutally honest with yourself and try not to answer I don’t know, or neutral to get a better result. The test at 16 personalities.com will tell you more about the personality type you have in an Introduction. It will also reveal more information about
Strengths & Weaknesses
There are some offers to buy more information. I haven’t yet and this isn’t an a referral link. There are so many free sources to learn about your specific personality type. In fact After you get your result, search for your personality profile on Pinterest! If you are married you can take the test for your spouse and compare what you both got. I did this for my husband mainly because we both didn’t agree on his results. He’s an ISTJ and I’m INFJ. Mine was so spot on that my husband said I was the INFJ of All INFJs lol! Of course we are all created different and no test can pin it all down, but the similarities and being understood is priceless (My Personality profile makes up 3% of the population, I appreciated being understood!). Just try it and see. Take your test and let me know what you get. It’s also a lot of fun to see the different profiles in your family. Who knows, maybe you’ll finally get an understand of someone close to you or a coworker!
Here are a few links to free personality tests.
