Iphone Temptation

One of the things that I have a soft spot for is technology. When Apple released the Iphone in the US I wanted one so bad. It has been a little over a year since the first Iphone came out. Now the new Iphone is going to be available in Canada. I am not sure on cost, but the price might be the same as the US. OK my goal is to save, so what will this purchase set me back plus the monthly costs. Will I benefit from being able to do some of my online business on the go, or is it just a WANT. The release date is July 11 can I resisit or will I take the plunge. As I fight with the little devil and angel on my shoulder I will keep everyone up to date.

The devil says buy, buy, buy.


Selling online

As readers of this blog know, my goal was to save $30,000.00 for a down-payment on a house. With the economy the way it is going this goal was set back a little. A few options that I have to increase my savings is to sell online. I have set up a free webstore through and started to list a good number of items on this site. The problem with selling through this webstore is marketing. If you use ebay you have a great number of people looking at your items, but fee's are very high. What I would like to do is create a word of mouth marketing promotion. Starting with the readers of this blog. All I ask is for you to take a look at the site and if you need something please consider buying from my site. If you can pass on the link information to others I would greatly appreciate this. After about a month of this type of advertising I will share my results on my blog.

Here is the link:

Please email your friends family let them know about my site. This is an interesting marketing test and I am sure we will all find the results helpful.
