American Express Charge Cards

What’s a charge card? Charge Cards are different from credit cards. The debt is not revolving credit, it’s a small loan. And you have to pay off the card in full each month. There are some definite advantages to using one of these cards in the way of services. To see more about American Express Charge Cards see my previous post on charge cards.

Flip Ultra Video Cameras

I already have my own Flip Ultra video camera. I love it. It’s perfect for capturing those spontaneous moments. We leave ours lying around the house or in Mrs. PT’s purse. We’ve got a ton of 30 second little moments of little Miss PT’s life captured on that thing. The cameras hold about an hour of footage and they quickly link up with your computer for uploading. It makes sharing your videos really easy.

How I’ve Made My Money Work Harder

I’d say the savviest thing we’ve done this season is to buy some things on Craigslist and pay a portion of full price. We purchased a barely used pre-lit Christmas tree for a 3rd of the new price.  It looks great in our living room. We also found some nice, clean toys for little Miss PT’s Christmas presents.

That’s all. Good luck to ya!
