Review: Decide.com

22 Nov

When considering this review of Decide.com, my first take was… Online shopping. Ouch! Too many sites too many products. Ugh! I hate shopping! 

However… In this instance, with the Holidays coming, I knew I could put the site to the test.  This year, I plan on buying myself a new TV for my Man Cave, so the timing is perfect. 

In addition thanks to Decide.com Real Army of Moms gets to put on another give-a-way with great prize opportunity for all you lovely Moms. (See details below)


When I got to the site, the first thing that I noticed was the lack of categories. Which was great for me, considering I was looking specifically for a TV, and they definitely had the scoop on plenty of them.  So… If by chance you are looking for electronics such asTV’s, Cell Phones, laptops or cameras, then this could be “the” place.  I don’t like the distractions of a million different categories when I’m searching for a certain type of product anyway. On the other hand, I did notice an option to recommend new categories, which leads me to believe that there will be more to come.

The fuctionality of the site is very user friendly and simple to navigate.  I had no problem finding exactly what I was looking for within a few clicks. Which in my book is an AAA+. The majority of sites are a total clusters of goods and offers, that require you bob and weave your way to a decision. IMO Complete waste of time! Then again that’s just me.

Decide.com definitely narrows down the search and price comparison similar to many sites on the net. However the difference is… not only do they instantly help find the lowest prices from various retailers, they help you decide whether to wait a little longer, to get a better deal.  In addition, if there is a newer model to be released soon, it will also recommend the option to wait for the latest and greatest. 

In the instance that you choose to wait, the Decide Mobile App alerts you when the time to buy is right, you can act immediately to take advantage of the savings. It’s actually a quite useful website and tool. I can safely say that Decide.com helps you make the wisest choice, at the right time, to get the best deal. Good stuff!

26 Oct

Considering the last few of my Wednesday posts have been a little on the depressing side, I figured that I would find something a little more entertaining, upbeat and fun….
These happen to float my boat a bit and definitely make me chuckle…

Embarrassing Moments

Let’s face it – we’ve all had our share of embarrassing moments. Just be thankful that none of them were as humiliating (and hilarious!) as these:
“A mother was taking a shower when her two year old son came into the bathroom and wrapped himself in toilet paper. Although he made a mess, he looked adorable, so she ran for my camera and took a few shots. They came out so well that she had copies made and included one with each of their Christmas cards. Days later, a relative called about the picture, laughing hysterically, and suggesting that she take a closer look. Puzzled, the mother stared at the photo and was shocked to discover that in addition to her son, she had captured her reflection in the mirror wearing nothing but a camera!”
“A woman and her sister were at the mall and passed by a store that sold a variety of nuts. As they were looking at the display case, the boy behind the counter asked if they needed any help. The woman replied, “No, I’m just looking at your nuts.” The sister started to laugh hysterically, the boy grinned, and she turned beet red and walked away.”
“A lady picked up several items at a discount store. When she finally got up to the checker, she learned that one of her items had no price tag. Imagine her embarrassment when the checker got on the intercom and boomed out for the entire store to hear, ‘PRICE CHECK ON LANE THIRTEEN, TAMPAX, SUPER SIZE.” That was bad enough, but somebody at the rear of the store apparently misunderstood the word ‘Tampax’ for ‘THUMBTACKS.’ In a businesslike tone, a voice boomed back over the intercom: ‘DO YOU WANT THE KIND YOU PUSH IN WITH YOUR THUMB OR THE KIND YOU POUND IN WITH A HAMMER?’
An introvert went to bar and spots a pretty looking woman sitting on the stool. He mustered all his courage for long time, then timidly approached and asked her, “Ma’ am, would be OK if sit here and talk with you?” She was alert, suspecting this man, and responds by yelling, “No, I won’t sleep with you tonight!” Customers in the bar started staring at them. The embarrassed guy quickly returns to his table dejected and ashamed. The young woman waits a little and then goes to the guy to apologize. With a smile on her face she says, “I am sorry if I embarrassed you. You see, I am a college student in psychiatry and I am putting together a thesis as to how people react to embarrassing moments.” The cunning guy now yells loudly, “What do you mean by $500?”
