I’ll resume regular ‘how-to make contemporary things’ – articles tomorrow, but today, I want to give you the heads-up on some too-good-to-miss deals.
Cyber Monday Deals
Cyber Monday Deals Week is actually all week and has already started. New deals will be added every couple of hours. Expect your favorites to sell out rather quickly.
The deals you can get are amazing! Hard to stay focus on what you truly need, but I’ve done my best. I scoured around for the best XMAS gifts and ‘need now’ creative solutions.
My 5 Top Lifestyle Deals
1. iPod w. SOUND SYSTEM
I just bought this last year and adore our sound system! Get your music system at a discount today/this week to enjoy all Jingle Bell music and a year-round swinging life.
a. iPod Touch
In case you don’t know, an iPod Touch is essentially an iPhone without the phone but with all the other extra features and apps.
Did you know that you can use Skype on an iPod Touch and so use it like a phone at all Wi-Fi spots? You can use all internet-based apps too. Just get to your favorite local coffee shop to get the most out of your ‘music’ device/camera/organizer/personal planner/gadget-all-in-one. The iPod Touch offers a super-inexpensive way to enjoy all the features of an iPhone, except for full-time phone service. Buy it today for a better price than in the Apple Store.
Want an iPod Touch as a gift? Make something personal to match this gift & amazing sound system: crochet a fun iPod cozy.
b. Bose Sound System for your iPod/iPhone
Believe me, I listened to ALL of them in several stores, and this one wins hands down. Yes, it is worth the difference in price, as it indeed is that much superior. PORTABLE Bose Sound System & Dock
