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!

Everyone is Getting Sick

sneeze

Can’t seem to talk with anyone or go anywhere and not find that someone is sick. A lot of it is being blamed on the weather and allergies along with most people not washing their hands enough. I haven’t heard of anyone having the flu as of yet, guess more and more people are getting their flu shots, I know I always do and urge anyone that hasn’t done it yet to hurry up and get theirs before it is too late.

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!

Welcome to 2017

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2017! I hope that this year brings us all a lot of good things.

We all work hard and try so hard, that we deserve to see good things come from all our efforts. I know my husband works hard to provide for his family, and I work hard to keep our home clean and comfortable. I spend a lot of time with our children and want to help them become responsible, caring, confident and successful adults.

I hope 2017 brings us all good things over the year. I saw this image and fell in love with the whole out with the old and in with the new year of 2017! Plain and simply!

goodbye 2016

Out With The Old, In With The New Year of 2017
