#LinkedMoms Twitter Party–Pets–tell us about your pets–tips on picking the right one.

Both Paula and I are pet owners.  I have an adorable labradoodle named Lola.  She is a ball of energy and at four years old she still acts like a puppy.  The thing is I think I would have done many things differently when we got her so that she might be easier to:

  • walk on a leash without pulling
  • not terrorize other dogs even though she just wants to play
  • not barks at any animal – real or animated – on the TV

Paula has a few guinea pigs.  She thought she had two girl but when one of them had babies she quickly found out that they were a pair.  She too has had challenges with her pets so we thought it would be fun to discuss all out stories, tips and tricks to picking the right pet.  We are talking cats, dogs, fish and parakeets.

Simple Strategies For Saving Money

Are you a penny pincher? A coupon clipper? A bargain hunter? A price matcher? A skilled negotiator? My Blog thriftymommastips.com was started with the idea of saving money and sharing deals. It has evolved – A LOT – over the last three years and I now talk about reviews and products and travel and health, with a healthy dose of saving money too. But I am forever a thrifty mom at heart.

Nobody is better at saving money than Mom is. So we want to know your strategies. Do you pinch pennies? Do you price match? Do you use your rewards points? If so which programs are the best? We will share our money-saving strategies with you, and we hope you will come with your best ideas too. I like a good sale, but I love a really good negotiation too. Someone once advised me negotiate everything. And I use that little philosophy often – and on the biggest ticket items like my mortgage, my bank fees and my Christmas presents. Find out how and why, and all my greatest strategies for saving money.

#LinkedIN – Best Practices for Small Businesses–Twitter Party

I have seen on a few discussion boards that bloggers, small business owners and organizers are a bit perplexed as to the benefits of being on LI.  At Wednesday’s twitter party, we will be discussing the benefits of using this professional social networking platform.

Join in the discussion: let us know how you used Linkedin.  Your Likes. Your Dislikes and then share your profile for others to connect.
