Free Catalogs are Doomed

Have you noticed that no one is sending out free catalogs any more? I used to get a dozen catalogs in the mail from different companies. But I wonder if anyone still uses the catalogs to order stuff? Or do we look through the catalog and then go online to order from their web site? Or are there still a few who will pick up the telephone and place an order over the phone and talk to a live person when they place their order?

I know that I don’t want to waste my time on the phone when I can do it myself online. But sometimes I have a questions about the product or the charges and I wish I could talk to a live person and at least get an answer to my question instead of having to just guess and then take a chance that I guessed wrong.

New Adobe

Woot ! I got the new Adobe Photoshop and Premier Elements. This is fucking awesome. I love these programs and playing with photoshop is too fucking cool, since I love to take pictures and then mess with them. My family loves the pictures I post on Facebook for them. Some are from our family get together, and some are just random pictures of my life or nature. I get some really good wildlife shots that I add words and such to that are funny as hell. I know that you know what kind of pictures I am talking about.

I have a few projects along that line that I am going to do. I copy write all of my pictures that I make so that if people want to use them for making money, I get a cut. I also leave my water mark on them so I have credit for them every time. I have thought about making this a home based business, but it is very time consuming and not that lucrative as a job. The term ” starving artist” comes to mind. I like to eat, so that will never do for me. Ah well, I am going to play with my new toy, have a great day !

I love freebies

The internet is so much fun. I can get freebies for all kinds of stuff on the net, like jewelry, clothing, perfume, electronics (small ones). I just fucking love it. There is no end to what you can find for free on the internet. The coupons alone will save you tons of money if you have a printer and do it right. I have a friend who saves so much money with coupons that sometimes, she goes into the store picks out what she has the coupons for and when they ring her up, they owe her money ! How fucking great is that shit?

I really need to spend some time with her so she can show me what exactly she does. I know that I would love to save money like that. She does buy a lot of bulk though and I need a bit more storage space first. I have been thinking of buying a climate controlled shed for my backyard. Then I can store all kinds of stuff and never have to worry about it going bad. We shall see what I decide to do. I might just get rid of the crap in the extra bedroom and use it. I will figure it out.
