The 37-Cent Nose Hair Trimmer & Paperback Swap

KMBC-TV Channel 9 Kansas City (TV) - 12/11/2008 by Dion Lim
Before I start my post about PaperbackSwap, a BIG thank you to Cynthia who sent me this tip about Marbeck appliances:

Cynthia told me about the 37-cent nose hair trimmer, and I started looking around more, and see you can buy 4 (packages I think) of batteries…Panasonic ones for 58-cents! Now that’s a LOSS LEADER. (Like our Coupon Mom, Chrissy Pate taught me, loss-leaders at the grocery store are those items that sell for waaaay below cost, to get you into the store to spend money.)

Check it out!

This next deal, is www.paperbackswap.com a site I discovered not too long ago, and started using to trade my un-read, or already-read and unwanted books online for new ones I do want.

Best of all, there’s almost 3 MILLION books on the site, and it’s FREE! Just pay for postage, which is about 2-bucks. (I print it online at the site, then wrap the book in it…no envelopes…no hassle. This, I like!)

Thanks again for the tips everybody– I’ve had a good time hearing about all of them!

Dion (and the Deals) :-)
