Are Black Friday Deals Worth it?

I have never been a big fan of Black Friday shopping. I did it once and got a lot of GREAT deals. However, I decided then- Never again!

For one thing, many of the best deals sell out fast, and you have to be in the right line at the right time. I hit 4-5 different stores so I really had to time things right.

But the worst aspect is dealing with the crowds and people pushing and shoving. A Wal-Mart worker just got KILLED- trampled to death. Geez.

Stay home and shop online. You might miss out on a few deals, but do it for your safety and sanity.

New Digital Camera Site Added

I have been really busy with our book store and other businesses. I have been trying to to take on too much, but have been keeping an eye on existing websites and properties. In much the same way I found our book store, I have recently acquired a site about digital cameras. This is site is called www.digicams101.com

The site is pretty bare as it needs all new content, but the idea is to act as a resource for digital photography and digital camera reviews- eventually leading to the sale of digital cameras on site.

New site for Delmarva Books

It has been over 2 years since we posted about our new book store, and it is still going strong. just thought I would make an update and mention that we have acquired the domain name for it ( was taken at the time but later became available), and it is no longer just an eBay store.

The site is www.delmarvabooks.com - as of right now we are listing inventory on eBay but plan on adding a few options after redevelopment.

Deals around the blogosphere



From time to time we search other blogs that focus on helping people save money with online shopping. We found a couple interesting sites about things that people commonly buy online and can save money.

First I saw this site that explains how to get a free cell phone deal from just about any wireless carrier. Dealing with wireless was one of the first things we did when we decided to offer online shopping discounts.

The other one I came across was about discount printer ink deals. Ink- almost everyone uses it, especially if you use a home or small office and print documents or pictures. And it can be very expensive. Most of my cartridges have cost $30+. I had a printer that cost $49, but the ink refills cost about $60 combined. I have literally bought a new printer instead of ink before. So any time you can save on that is great. They talk about online savings as well as the best stores t go for refills and replacements.
