The 10 Best Coupon Sites That Will Help You Save Money In September, The New York Times gave a primer on the brief history of coupon use in America and highlighted a noticeable increase in the use of coupons since the decline of the economy. “Coupon redemption in America peaked in 1992, at the end of a recession, when 7.9 billion coupons were redeemed, according to Inmar, a coupon-processing company. By 2006, that number fell to 2.6 billion and stagnated there through 2008. (if this and the paragraph below are all one quote, they need to be together…)As the economy worsened and consumer sentiment plunged, coupon redemption ticked up 10 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008, compared with the period a year ago — the first jump in coupon redemption since the early 1990s. your social art network Pictify Find E-mail Address Password

8-bit popup cards Hello! Remember that pixel heart card I made a while back? Well it has been one of my most popular tutorials to date so I thought I would add another few designs to the collection. Meet ‘space-invader popup’ and ‘skull popup': Like the heart card, they are really minimal (which I just love) and easy to make once you have got the hang of it.

the personal things Renoir left behind I am only allowed in this generous blogspot to post in one image per each blog. I did find a treasure trove of personal things Renoir left behind listed in Hantmann's Auctioneers and appraisers. I chose the wedding certificate to his beloved Aline and then found so many other things on the site that you can go look for yourself and perhaps put a nice bid on Aline's beautiful fringed kimono. I coveted Renoir's spectacles. I wonder what strength they were?

Peer-to-peer lending Peer-to-peer lending (also known as person-to-person lending, peer-to-peer investing, and social lending; abbreviated frequently as P2P lending) is the practice of lending money to unrelated individuals, or "peers", without going through a traditional financial intermediary such as a bank or other traditional financial institution. This lending takes place online on peer-to-peer lending companies' websites using various different lending platforms and credit checking tools. Overview[edit] Geneva Sound Systems – WorldRadio The Geneva WorldRadio is a contemporary take on the classic world receiver: a radio that could receive all available radio stations of their time, using broadcasting technologies such as FM, longwave, and shortwave.

The new Geneva WorldRadio provides complete access to today’s radio stations, as the classic world receiver did for previous generations.

This requires new methods and ways of thinking for science -- not outside of a (limited) science, but within an expanded one. - Michael Mehaffy This section should cover both scientific concepts about P2P (network theory and such), but also the use of P2P practices within the field of science.

You Can Now Buy A Mini-Airstream Trailer For $35K Airstream, the company behind the iconic "silver bullet" trailer, has just released a new lightweight trailer model called Basecamp. Small and sleek, it's perfect for towing behind a small SUV. And at $35,000, it's a lot more affordable than the classic Airstream. It's like a tiny house on two wheels. Basecamp is just over 16 feet long and weighs 3,000 pounds.

I like this resource because it is very simple and easy to learn about this seeing it so clear by manupiriz Oct 4

The key to etsy is to read the shop description and check out the related websites for a seller to see if they are really selling handmade or machine reproduced (which means every piece sold will be exactly the same). I look for shops that say "every piece is made by hand and will require time to produce before shipping." While the Etsy policies are supposed to restrict non-handmade items, the policies are only as good as the enforcers so a lot of short run commercially produced creation slips through. There are still a lot of real independent artists on etsy if you take the time to look. Happy shopping! by meganpawlak Oct 21

I totally agree with everyone! I love the site but things that aren't handmade or even vintage do creep in now. The supplies category used to be good but it's getting worse because people are putting things in the wrong place. by rockpaperscissors Dec 9

Etsy is a larger version of folksy. I agree that there's a lot of mass produced stuff creeping in. Although the grey area lies in the distinction 'hand made'. There should be a caveat to eliminate this 'hand assembled' type of product. Although I'm sure we're all aware of the naughty stuff. by tullawulla Sep 29

I think it is always the trend with this type of business . Starts out looking like it's about art and craft , personalized touch . Then becomes a comercialized money making machine . by mirlen101 Sep 29

Yes, resellers, not just supplies. Wedding gowns, designer knockoff handbags, I've even seen electronics being sold there now. The people running it don't allow any controversy, either. Reporting resellers or copyright infringing doesn't do anything and if you try calling attention to those shops you can get banned off the forums, at the very least the threads get shut down super fast. It's really sad. by phrensy Sep 28

I am like you. I picked up pearltrees and then filed it into the "could be good, don't really understand it that much, I will get to it later file." I keep looking around for programs to help me organize things. Then I recently got back into PearlTrees and found it could do a lot of what I wanted. I think it could use some improvements on screen help for novices. easier way to keep pearltrees open all the way to the root etc. But is has a great interface and it makes organizing sites very easy by sbuser Sep 27

It's changed a lot . Grew massively . Tons of resellers pushing products from China now ;-/ Still interesting to browse though. by mirlen101 Sep 27

Heard about this site a while back, but never really went to it much. Recently "rediscovered" it and loving it. Very creative people out there. I just enjoy randomly searching what people have for sale. by peri_cardium Sep 27

oh I hadn't even noticed that! I rather liked the fact that everything was handmade or vintage, though. by mishkabunny Jul 3

Be sure to browse around. Etsy is now allowing resellers and not just handmade/vintage. :( by phrensy Jun 19

Spontaneous shoppers love fun stuffs that catch their eyes. This is a website where you can buy and sell handmade stuff. it's very interesting. by grace0408 Dec 21

Etsy is a very nicely implemented, well designed social marketplace for handmade items. A more innovative eBay. The selection of items and active community contribute well to the overall shopping experience. Etsy is the place to look for unique handmade art, jewelery and much more. by marcelmaassen Mar 13
