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)

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 Organi…
