Well, you’ve probably taken notice of some of the changes here at JerseySmarts.com. From new header images (they rotate) to a slightly streamlined front page to less advertisements on the site, your favorite New Jersey blog is getting freshened up! Aside from the few items that I’ve listed in the previous post, here are some additional changes to this blog. [Read more…]
Hello everyone! I’m going to be trying out some new stuff at JerseySmarts.com so don’t panic if you see things looking a little bit different the next few times you visit the blog. I don’t have anything major planned other than some rearranging of content. For example, I’m going to try using the Read the rest of this entry » tag more often if not on every post (except this one, since it’s really short). When I began this blog I actually used that feature all of the time; the more things change, right?
Also, you’ll notice that the sharing buttons at the bottom of each post are now gone and have been replaced on the individual entry pages with a bar above each post allowing you the option to share the page to a variety of sites, print the page, subscribe to our RSS feed, or share the specific page with your Facebook friends. I think that some people will find this feature very useful. Anyway, I’m always interested in more of your ideas and comments about how to make the blog better, so please let me know if you have any thoughts!
Last week I asked the question of whether or not anyone has found any big bargains out in the stores. I hadn’t found anything worth buying until late last week when I came across a ridiculously marked down 47″ Vizio LCD full HDTV at Wal-Mart. After being dropped a few hundred dollars there was no question about it and I had to get that television.
Aside from the television and an extended warranty plan I also picked up the items needed to mount the TV to the wall, a new DS game (which is interesting because I really don’t have time to play the thing these days), a bunch of new books from Barnes & Noble (thanks to a gift card from my older brother), a new luxury sheet set, new pillows for my bed, a new carry-on piece of luggage and travel kit, and some minor pieces of clothing. For what it’s worth, all of my cost cutting and budgeting over the last few years allowed me to purchase these items with no concern about long-term financial burden.
So…over the past few days I’ve done my part to help kick the economy in the ass!
