I'm looking for an awesome projector. No more big TVs for me. I want to play big screen movies in my yard while roasting marshmallows.
What yard? You live in Irvine right?


Yeah I gotta yard ... And in Irvine too  ;D

It's big enough for my kids to do u turns in a powerwheel in and roast marshmallows too.

I found Amazon's Black Friday deals pretty sad. I lost a chance at Inside Out when it was $9.99. 

I bought a Bluetooth stereo set for a friend. Savings weren't that great but it's better than paying $60.

Guess no projector for me this year again. I'll go hunt for it next year. I'm a bit broke since I did get solar panels in September.

So did anyone get any deal?

My relatives went to Target again and every TV deal was available (I guess no one really likes to buy the Element brand). They called to ask if I wanted one but I passed.

I just went to Target at 8PM and there were LOADS of TVs available.  Guess all those people waited in line for nothing.

This looks fun, double your total cash back after 12 months.  Setup Apple Pay for the additional 10% back until years end.  Possibly 20%-30% back the first year.  Have to take a credit hit since I do not have a Discover It card. 

If you got some big purchase before years end, might be worth it.  What's another credit card to manage?

Your children's college education can be the most expensive investment you may have next to purchasing your primary residence. If you have two children who are both attending private school and don't qualify for any financial aid, your total costs can be anywhere between $500,000 - $600,000. Below you can see the link of which universities are the best investments for your money. This calculated by the total cost of a college education, and your return on investment. Choosing a college degree with the highest possible return on a student’s investment is becoming more and more of a priority.

Georgia Tech ranks #3, UC Berkeley ranks #8, and UCLA ranks #36. As a Georgia resident your children can be qualified for either the HOPE scholarship or the Zell Miller scholarship which is not based on financial need. Zell Miller has a higher high school GPA requirement of 3.7 where HOPE GPA requirement is 3.0.


US NEWS Ranking #36

US NEWS Ranking #20

US NEWS Ranking #23


For 2015-2016, the HOPE Scholarship pays a maximum of $6780 for two semesters of enrollment in 15 HOPE eligible credits per term.


For 2015- 2016, The Zell Miller Scholarship pays 100% of the total cost of in-state tuition charged. This is a maximum of $9,812 for two semesters of enrollment in 12 Zell Miller eligible credits per term for students who do not qualify for a prior "guaranteed tuition" rate.

Got a tea kettle and some transformers thingy from the Lightning deals, used my chase for 10% back.

Got some Disney store stuff for gifting (18% cash back thru shopathome link)

Still looking to use my $15 Amex offer at Amazon, maybe I'll get one of those drone quadcopters...

Bestbuy has it for $400 for the 4 camera kit,  still kinda on the wall, what if someone snatches the camera?

If they take one camera, then your less one camera.

But according to common core, that's not a right answer! :)

Interesting math. $1.259 for 2600 SF ($484 PSF) compared to $1.223 for 3300 SF ($370 PSF). If this really is correct pricing, perhaps the lower PSF is due to the compelled affordable housing "bonus feature" for a 2 story unit?

Not sensing the WIN here.
