2. A survey found that if you haggle the price of hearing aids with certain retail businesses you may be able to save. One survey found about half of the 14% who haggled got a better deal.

I saw these ads on Facebook a couple of days ago and thought they were a fantastic idea.
The first one is an Electronic Mosquito Killer/Bug Zapper, USB Powered Silent Non-toxic UV LED Mosquito Lamp with Built in Fan Mosquito Catcher Trap for Baby Good Sleep. (Their words). For me I think its a brilliant idea. I have not seen one before and maybe they have been around a while but for me its a first time. Its product name is FANXIAOKJ. It is advertised for US$18.99 . I think they are about AUD $30. They can be bought on Amazon
The second one is the Travelon Bag Bungee– If you are like me you travel a lot and find that extra hand bag for travel on board, is a pain in the butt and this bungee is brilliant to be able to strap it on the top of your carry on.
This also is on Amazon for the price of US$10.95 probably about AUD$18.

I guess most of us knew this was happening but because it did not affect the price so much we choose to overlook the fact that a lot of Companies are cutting costs by giving us less for the same price. They are shrinking the packaging.
This looks like a brilliant idea for walking the cat, taking it to the vet, traveling. I checked the prices and Amazons price starts at $108.00.
These look real cute and make a nice gift and a very very reasonable price.
If you have teenage daughters or Granddaughters as I have, I think they would love these outfits. As a Christmas Gift comes to mind.
You may think it is months away but as you know time fly’s.
Just click on the article to go the site
These products including the jewelry are at a ridiculously low price. But as I have said before the clothing size is small so make sure you take a look at the size chart which is usually at the bottom of the page of the article you are looking at. Take your measurements and compare with the sizes shown (Do not take any notice of the s – m – L – Xl or 2XL as they do not compare with the USA sizes, so get that tape measure out)

There are heaps of great looking jewelry on this site also. Once again just click on the piece of jewelry below and it will take you to the site.
Often you have a room that needs touching up with new paintwork. If color is not a big issue, then you are able to save money. Your paint store will often have paint at fraction of the price because of customers ordering paint and not liking the color of the paint mix. The stores will then probably be selling them off cheaper to rid of the paint.

I am always amazed at the new technology that is becoming available to us.
Here is a new one to me called “Homesnap” which is a new App you can download to your IPhone.
This App is Unique in that it allows users to get any information on homes with just a picture. The information that you get is: Square footage, price estimate, number of rooms, interior pictures and get this it will give you the information on similar homes.
This App works all over the country and an option to contact the agent. I think this will revolutionize the way we buy houses. It certainly saves you the time and effort of chasing down the Agent for the information.
This App is FREE!
I for one am going to get this App.
You can read all about this App on http://www.sawbuck.com/homesnap/ and also iTunes Preview
There has been a major price cut on flat screen TV’s from now until the end of Black Friday. The price cut in some stores are as much as 40% from a year ago.
Retailers are focusing on deals for the bigger size TV rather than the extra’s like 3D.
The stores are offering free shipping also.
On an average 32″ TV’s are selling for $199 and 40″ around $300 and 46″ between $375 and $400.
I noticed that Walmart had a 40″ TV advertised for $248. Now that is a good deal.
You can also go to Dealnews.com and shop for more deals.
When you buy a new TV do not be tempted or persuaded to buy the extended warranty, it has been proven to be a waste of money for a reliable product like the TV’s of today.
So if you are in need of a new TV now is the best time to purchase one.
