It's #HintingSeason and I'm Checking Out OLED TVs at Best Buy



A new TV is on our Christmas wishlist and after a recent visit to our local Best Buy, I think I have found the perfect one to replace our old school, projection TV - the LG OLED TV.

What is OLED TV?  I'd never heard of it either but it's the latest in television technology.

The stunning design of LG OLED TV is only 0.21" thick at its thinnest point. Picture quality is spectacular, with Infinite Contrast that ranges from the most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. And, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors. 

Best Buy’s everyday price of the LG OLED TV is $3499.99 (save $500).  Check out these features of the LG 55EC9300 SKU# 7846019 – OLED TV

· Infinite contrast ratio and stunning color - delivers more natural, lifelike viewing

· 4 Color Pixel technology enhances color range and accuracy

· Super thin design (consider how to show visually)

· Find content faster with webOS

Do you have any electronic gifts on your Christmas list this year?  A new television?  A tablet?  PC? Mac?  Let me know, leave a comment below.



Disclosure: I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free

Tips for Organizing Your Home Office

As we gear up for the holidays, now is a great time to stock up on office supplies.  Many office supply stores are offering major discounts on some much needed office supplies such as paper, desk accessories, printers, computers, etc.  

1.  Pens, pens, pens.  Stack pens and pencils upright in an old coffee mug.  Be sure it's a mug you don't plan on drinking from as ink and lead may accumulate in the bottom of the mug.  I love this clear mug because I can see my fave pens at a glance.

2.  Stop making paper clip chains and make use of some of those fallen magnets from your fridge or pick up a few magnets at your local dollar store.  Check out this pack of smiley face magnets which retails for a whopping 97 cents.  

3.  Keep commonly used files close.  I love these vertical file organizers because I can see those files I use commonly at a glance.  Place those files you use most often in the front.  

4.  Use a desktop organizer with pockets like this Artistic Executive Desk Pad Organizer with Storage.  This organizer features a cover that lifts so you can fill it up with office essentials like pens, paper clips, staples, etc. The cover can be closed to keep your desktop neat and tidy.

5.  Accordion files are great for organizing multiple items.  For example, use an accordion file to organize client contacts and emails or even monthly invoices.  I keep a alphabetical accordion file and labels on hand to store correspondence from contacts. 

Shoplet.com is a great place to shop for items to help you organize your home office.  Be sure to visit them at www.shoplet.com.

NIV God's Word for Gardeners Bible: Grow Your Faith While Growing Your Garden

God will meet you personally in your garden... and in his. Throughout the Scriptures God has revealed spiritual truth in the language of growing things. This Bible will take you into a deeper relationship with God through the contemplation of soil and soul. 

NIV God's Word for Gardeners Bible 
Grow Your Faith While Growing Your Garden
The NIV God’s Word for Gardeners Bible will inspire you to seek God in a personal way through informative essays, devotional readings and prayers that explore the nature of the gardener’s work, the rewards of gardening, the influence of seasons and weather, and the joy of the harvest. In this Bible you will also find botanical-themed pages containing horticultural information for the prominent plants noted in Scripture and landscape-themed pages highlighting the main gardens and regions in which the events in the Bible took place. Draw near to the One whose garden is planted with delight---in you!

Features: 
  • 260 daily devotions and 52 weekend readings arranged in weekly themes and placed near relevant passages in the text to explore the biblical metaphors of gardens and gardening 
  • Beautiful, durable hardcover 
  • Topical Index (for 52 weeks) 
  • Special sections on the Garden of Eden, the garden of Gethsemane and Jesus the Vine.
My Thoughts:  Green thumbed faithful, this Bible is for you!  Better yet, Bible and nature lovers will enjoy this Bible as well.  To get a real appreciation for this book you need to read the introduction:  "Reading God's word like a gardener".  Although NIV God’s Word for Gardeners Bible is marketed as a Bible for gardeners, this Bible is so much more.  The Bible is well illustrated and the writers did a wonderful job presenting the gardens of the Bible.
