Sweet Spot #21: Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget

I, like most people, am guilty of what some call “champagne taste on a beer budget” or “eyes bigger than her stomach” or “expensive” or simply “living beyond her means”. It’s a heavy load to bear, especially without help from trust funds or doctor salaries. Lately, with the help of a growing number of discount shopping sites, made popular by Groupon, shopping has become much more accessible, affordable, easier and less stressful than outlets and Ross. No more buying generic or fake to get the deal; we want the real deal, the name brand!

Sweet Spot #10: Here Comes Santa Claus

To add the countless information you can find on Google, they now have an inside track on Santa Claus. I just read the most heart-warming story of how the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), of all places, got into the Santa tracking game on the Google Blog.

Check out the NORAD Tracks Santa site for the Christmas Countdown and fun family Christmas-themed activities, but the real headliner of the show happens on Christmas Eve, where you can track Santa’s path on Google Earth. Happy Tracking!

Are all the new ideas gone? Not necessarily – these two artists have succeeded in finding new interpretations, check them out!
