How to save money while shopping and get an awesome deal!

My favorite websites for saving money for online purchases are Be frugal. I find this website to offer some of the best cashback deals anywhere.  The second would be Ebates. The truth is you can check both websites to see who will offer the best deal for cashback when shopping. A great application to add for chrome is the Honey app. I use it to check for the best prices on Amazon and it has a really cool price drop feature to keep an eye on prices for the future and it allows you to see how the prices have fluctuated on a particular item and much more! Another site that is great for deal finding is Fatwallet.com but I pay special attention to the hot deal forums. Of course there is always DansDeals. Truthfully the best way to take advantage of DansDeals is to add it to your twitter. This is because usually the best deals offered are gone before you sneeze. Adding the website to create a twitter alert will allow you to grab an awesome deal before it's "dead". Another interesting app is OfferUp. This App is what craigslist should have done but decided not to. Features merchandise being sold locally and you can usually find some great deals there as well. Facebook of course has local groups where you can become a member to browse local merchandise and sometimes at some serious savings. Ebay of course is nothing new and occasion you can find a flash sale of $15 off $75. What are some of your favorite websites and apps?

YAAKOV SHWEKEY ♫ THOSE WERE THE DAYS (Double CD)- Preview!


It's been a while since I last posted but I thought this news was noteworthy to speak about. 


Yaakov Shwekey latest album is entitled "Those were the days". A double CD of material that is a throw back. They are classic selections of tunes that I grew up with. Click here to preview the new album! The arrangements sound very solid so this is an album worth checking out. Here is some more information on this new release: 

Yaakov refers to this album as his "favorite collection" and he writes:
the innocence of childhood, the simple joy of a different time, moments long-gone summoned back in a single note, tears and laughter all together. I've been blessed, for my life, has been filled with that music. My childhood and yeshiva years, memories of family and close friends, of cherished moments and experiences against a backdrop of exceptional song. Which is why I'm so gratified to be able to offer this album. It's my humble acknowledgement of those who've filled my world with music and given my life color and meaning. The medleys are an expression of my thanks: each one celebrates a different artist or style of music. Standing in the studio and recording these selections,every song took me back to a different place and time. In singing these songs, we live them once again: it's our hope that we can bring them back to a new generation, allowing them to feel them the way we did. And so this album is in recognition to them,
the artists, composers, producers, arrangers and musicians who created this genre, the magnificent world of Jewish music. The entire album- every album, every song I've ever sung, every breath I've ever taken- is thanks to the One who Makes Music, whose entire creation is a symphony, who has given me a million reasons to sing, Modeh ani lefanecha.

Smokey Joe's is CLOSED!?


After being open for almost a decade in Teaneck NJ, Smokey Joe's one of the very first kosher smokehouses is closing it's doors. Apparently the owner refused to renew their lease so they were forced to close and terminate 15 of their employees. They will still be offering catering though. No information on if they will re-open at a new location. Not surprisingly many are asking them to open up in their town. Their Facebook page provides their own words on the matter.
