Friday Finds – October 26, 2007

Cara’s Finds

Books for rent. I’m not a big reader. But, if I was would be of interest. It’s kind of like NetFlicks, but for books. Monthly membership fees start at $14.99. You get to hold onto two books at a time for as long as you like, then ship it back for free for the next title on your list. If you want to keep the book, you just pay for it online.
Last minute Halloween costumes. I thought the ipod dancer costume was pretty clever. Another easy idea from this 8 Killer Do-It-Yourself Last-Minute Halloween Costumes story is a Spam Monster. Print out all your spam emails, cut them up differently, crumple some, and stick them all over your body.

Susan’s Finds (Better Late Than Nevah!)
Time savers courtesy of Sprint. Check out these short videos to “fast-forward through the boring parts of life.” Learn how to quick-peel a potato or banana, speed-dry a manicure, chill a pop in two minutes, and more.

Disney’s new encyclopedia for parents. Parentpedia offers helpful info for parents of babies to teens on a range of topics, from the expert perspective and other parents’ views. It’s kinda like Wikipedia for moms.

Save on Silk. My cousin Alison told me about this sweet deal to save $2.25 on a carton of Silk soymilk. We love the stuff on cereal (and with warm cookies). Get ya some.

  1. Renting books? What about just going to the library for free? 🙂

  2. well, i guess you pay for the convenience of having books delivered to your door. Plus, when you have two small children, it’s impossible to go to the library to browse for yourself.
