Not Just Shopping, But Retail Therapy

Not Just Shopping

How is it that Ozmott, an app I hadn’t heard about until recently but has been around since 2012, has figured out how to complete my life?! I’ve used numerous shopping apps, however this one has proven itself unique.

Ozmott has taken all of the perks such as Rewards, Social Networking, Gaming & Ease of Use to a level that I can truly appreciate. I didn’t have to spend hours sifting through offers and clipping items I want to use. However, I can add deals to my Cloud if I thought I might want to use them later. I was able to add my friends to the app so that they could get deals too and I (most importantly) earned bigger rewards for the more friends I added!

The rewards system Ozmott uses is called “Pips”. They carry two types of deals: Regular (the white ones) and Luxe (the gold ones) Guess which ones have the biggest discounts? Yep, Luxe! Unlock one of those babies and you’re saving some dolla dolla billz y’all! Quick tip-they give you 100 Pips just for signing up to help get you rolling.

OH! GEOlocation is such a cool feature! It brings up the offers/stores that have deals NEAR me! And not, the closest metro near me BUT REALLY, the ones right in my town literally 1 mile away! Or closer, depending on where you are.. duh;) Since I live in such a small town that finding a guitar center near me or any of the many stores that that I spend a good amount of money at can only be find online unless I want to drive 3 hours to get to any place of a decent sized brick and mortar store(s)

Ozmott doesn’t send me those ANNOYING push notifications! They don’t even ask! I was so happy not to be bothered with this. I’m sorry if I seem over the top on this issue but it is definitely a pet peeve.

So, let’s wrap this up in a tight little package and use it to save some cash during the Holidays.

  • Geolocation – Shows you what deals are close
  • Social Network – Let’s me brag to my friends if I want
  • Rewards System – Get paid to share with my friends
  • Not Annoying!
  • Oh, and let’s not forget easy.. It really is an easy app to sign up with and use 
right away.
Have Fun and Happy New Year!

Loud Sounds

There is something about certain noises that really trip my trigger. Sounds like drums, base, thunder, fireworks, shotguns, and the best ever being the low rumble of a Harley-Davidson. And if you give that bike a couple of blasts of gas while going through a tunnel, well, you just can’t get anything better than that, ever.

I can’t wait for my kid brother, Billy to get his new drum set. I never thought that he would ever venture out and replace the one that he has had all his life. We always knew he was going to be a drummer. Billy would loudly rock back and forth and bang his head in his crib, sometimes for hours before going to sleep and sometimes after he woke up. When Billy got his first real drum set, it was love at first sight. Billy lives to play the drums and has totally no interest in learning and/or playing any other musical instrument. It’s all about the drums!

So this new drum set  at that he has been talking up should be arriving at his door sometime next week. I have a feeling that we are going to see and hear from him, less and less. I’ll give him some “alone time” with it before running over to hear and see it, which isn’t easy for me since I am one of his biggest fans. Always have been and always will be. Even when he was just playing his ever popular thunder tube that he has had for so many years and has entertained dozens of people with this unique sound effect that not a lot of folks know about.

so unique in so many ways

In the mean time I’ll just have to go to the shooting range and practice my shooting with my 20 gauge shotgun to get my audio thrills.

Mailboxes Galore

My mother has convinced me to start looking for a new mailbox. According to her all residential mailboxes need to have the house number plainly visible so that any emergency personnel can quickly see and read in order to take care any type of emergency that comes up in people’s lives.

Actually I would like to buy a locking mailbox because so many identity thieves are preying on people’s mailboxes. The world has gone crazy with all of the identity theft issues going on these days. The things that we have to do in order to protect ourselves from one another, it’s just insane.

Anyway I’ve found a great website that has this huge selection of all types of mailboxes that I’m sure to find something that will fit the bill. I never new there was such a variety of mailboxes, it might take me a while to weed through them all but I’ve got patience and time on my side, at least until my mom starts in on me!

Flowers For Christmas In England

Sending a holiday flower arrangement overseas wasn’t as difficult as I first imagined it would be. I have always sent my BFF flowers for Christmas and since she has moved to England I’ve been wondering how I was going to manage to keep that long standing tradition going. I managed to use the Internet to my advantage, once again, and found a way to send flowers uk style that isn’t going to cost me a fortune and I’m really pleased with myself right now.

She has always been a flower child, so to speak, her parents were genuine hippies of the 70’s, so she gets it honestly. So I don’t think she will need the paper work that will be included with the directions that they always send on how to keep your newly delivered flowers fresh looking by using the additives that they always supply the receivers of the new arrivals.

She is really happy over in England for various reasons. Learning about new species of plants and flowers has kept her busy in her free time over there. It wouldn’t surprise me if she eventually started her own florist over there at some point. Might as well make some money doing something that you enjoy right.

 

Liability Is A Huge Issue Today

Coming from a large family with a lot of siblings I have always wished that one of us had gone on to be some type of attorney. We have a plumber, an electrician, a heating/air condition specialist, a computer geek, a chief , a business marketing specialist, an engineer, a customer service representative, a mechanic, but not a lawyer one to be found.

Right now having an employment law practice in the family would certainly come in handy. So many of my relatives are taking a chance (while the economy is still in crisis) and opening up their own small businesses, so having someone to turn to for all the legal stuff that goes along with starting any type of business would certainly be an asset. I can’t even imagine all the in’s and out’s of what it takes to get a business up and running and to keep it in the black. Liability is such a huge deal these days, it just blows my mind.
