The Gift Giving Champ Called 1800Flowers

Whenever I think of 1800flowers, I always associate them with a few particular holidays of annual occasions. Valentine’s Day, birthday’s, graduation, anniversary’s, ect. I’ve personally ordered through them a few times and have always been very happy with the quality and timeliness of the orders. However, the 1800flowers family is more than just a flower company it’s actually part of one of the largest giving giving families online. The Popcorn Factory, Fannie May, 1800baskets, Cheryl’s and Fruit Bouquets.com are all under the same umbrella and you can shop at all six sites at the same time. I absolutely love utilizing shared shopping carts because it allows me to shop a variety of different brands and speeds up my checkout time without having to search for additional gift giving ideas. You’re definitely not going to find ideas how to save money or spend smart, but you are going to learn about ways to save time when trying to find a creative and unique gift for any occasion that’s sure to wow your recipient.

Get Your Perfect Bag with eBags

Sometimes it’s just nice to search and leverage a brand or company simply to see what’s out on the market. Which is exactly what I do with the site eBags, which helps me find the exact model, style and type of bag I need for traveling or just everyday life. It’s always challenging to find other companies to shop with when you can save time and money with Amazon. They quite literally have any and everything with amazing customer service and fantastic shipping times. However, I do like having specialty brands and companies to use and leverage like Republic Wireless for a $10/month phone plan, Dorco for $25/year for razors and Pureformulas for all of my supplement needs. Let’s take a look at what makes eBags a great option for doing product research for finding the perfect bag.

Familes Save with Soap.com

For those looking for an alternative to Amazon, you find over 30,000+ household products, with a 365 day return policy and free 1-2 day shipping with every order over $49 at Soap.com. I’m always looking for different companies and stores to compare to the Costco experience. There’s so many different choices for getting your household products, but it can be challenging to offset the prices Costco offers. For me personally, my time is becoming more and more valuable, to the point that I’m willing to sacrifice some of my savings in exchange for more time out of my day. As a single male, I realize that my time isn’t nearly as valuable or important as a family. An extra 20-30 minutes can be the difference between getting a nap, me time or getting the house cleaned versus not getting any of that done because of your extended shopping adventure.

Fueling Your Running Passion with Road Runner Sports

I’m a VIP, and use Road Runner Sports to supplement my running and athletic wear needs, because they have amazing customer service and the ability to buy running supplies anywhere in the United States. Since my Elementary school days, I’ve been involved with physical fitness and sports teams ranging from basketball to soccer. When I entered High School, I wasn’t physically gifted enough to make any of the sports teams, but I did discover my passion for running. I was never the fastest or the strongest runner, but there I simply enjoyed the daily grind of getting out on the road or a trail and going for a run. Over the years I’ve trained and run in various events, completed a Marathon, run in the Hood to Coast relay race and made the habit of running several times a week regardless of the weather in the Pacific Northwest. I’ve shopped at various local running stores and always enjoyed the camaraderie they tend to display with weekly running groups. However, the one thing that’s missing at the local running stores is the ability to get what you need if you’re out of town or simply can’t get to the store.
