Thursday Thrifty Throwdown: Indulge Yourself Challenge #4

Posted by   + Show Post


Happy Thursday, folks and Happy Indulge Yourself Challenge #4! I think you all may find something you like with this one.

I know you all know how to log onto a computer....how do I know this? You are here, aren't you? Online, commenting, chatting, hanging out with me! Which means you know your way around the Internet universe. And sometimes, there is nothing better than just wasting time on fun sites or sites that inspire you or sites that allow you to get some much needed unique gifts for others (or yourself) for not that much money. We all may be on Facebook -- and maybe some of you are on Twitter too (follow me!) -- but I gathered a few others to indulge in.

And yes, confession time: researching these sites totally made the writing of this post difficult (and way longer than it usually takes). I got sucked into mega time warps on each of these wonderful places.

Etsy - I have mentioned this shopping site many times and I love it. It allows small artisans to sell their work on one central location. The prices of the pieces as well as the shipping is remarkably low, especially compared to regular sites. I've purchased some beautiful artwork and jewelry. Seriously, check out some of these cool mommy jewelry.

Pinterest - A virtual pinboard to post and collect inspirations for, well, everything. Clothes, home décor, quotes, articles...all of it. Follow my stuff as you get started.

Shopstyle - This is a perfect site for online shopping. Say you need a new tote and want to spend less than $35 on it. You type in that info and it has pictures and links to all of those all over the web from Macy's to Gap to smaller website you may never have stumbled upon. A lifesaver and money saver!

Lifehacker - This is one to just browse on and read up on ways to make your life easier. Or just some fun info on life. I can always find something interesting from the fabulous writers on there.

What are your favorite sites to visit -- other than CafeMom, of course!

Pinterest definitely!! I've tried a couple of hairs styles on my daughter. Pinned lots of nail ideas and done one or two designs already ;)

I go on Etsy occasionally.

I like to shop on Amazon, Ebay and Walmart.

And I am on FB A LOT!

I am going to check out shopstyle. I like fb but don't go on much anymore. I also like gottadeal for seeing the deals and they post the black Friday deals before the ads come out.
