Steam Team Clean

Posted by Annie S. on September 18, 2012 at 11:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Does anyone else find that they have a difficult time keeping their carpets and couches clean?  Goodness, I do!  I have actually considered begging to be allowed to take up the carpet and refinish the hardwood underneath it for this very reason.  We have tried many types of cleaners...and yet...we still have stained carpets.

I came across this company today: Steamteam .  I loved that they offered so many different services!  The same people that can clean my couch effectivly, can also shine my kitchen floors, clean my air ducts, and get the stain out of my daughters' carpet.  Steamteam also does curtains, water extraction, and leather cleaning!  A one stop shop.  I wonder if they do windows too, lol. 

In addition to offering a wide arrange of services, Steamteam also provides many tips on stain removal. Perfect for me, since I live in Indiana and Steamteam is in Texas.  I wish they had a branch right down the street from me, because I would call them today!!!!

While I am no longer running the couponing business, I am still all about saving money and getting the best products!  So, I am going to try to use this website to help keep me organized on what to get each week.  I will also be writing some reviews for a few companies.  Anyone who reads, will just see what is going into my pantry.  :D  Luck you...or not so lucky.

     In the past few years, I noticed that most of the non-grocery items that I buy, are offered at a better price online.  It just takes some searching.   Sometimes, it takes a lot of searching!  So, when I came across the website,, I was tickled. Their motto is, "Shopping Your Way", and I will have to admit that I kind of agree! 

     So, what is so special about  Well, they are a site that allows you to search multiple online stores, all at once!  No more opening 6 different tabs and trying to switch back and forth to price compare.  Also, you can search for coupons and codes to each store as well.  I LOVE coupons!  So, say that you are searching for padding for your kitchen chairs, but didn't want to brave the cold November rain to explore target, kmart, and walmart.  All you need to do is go to and type in your search of chair pads.  Viola!  You found the perfect solution to your sore bottom as you sit and eat all your free food!  You can also search for outdoor tv enclosure and silver bedding!

    This is the perfect time of the year to try out.  Perfect to avoid the Christmas rush.  And, you know that you will actually save money because you won't be tempted to spend money on those cute little chapsticks that you think will be perfect for so-and-so's stocking.  Get what you need, in the comfort of your home, and save money!  "Shopping Your Way"! 


I Love New York

Content by Mitch Osborne

New York is a wonderful state and I would know! I’m a born and bred New Yorker and one of the things I’m always fighting people on is the reputation that people in New York aren’t friendly. Just look at me – I’m friendly! Anyway, I also keep hearing that real estate here is totally out of the bounds it’s so expensive and that’s just not true. I just bought my first place, a little one bedroom in Chelsea and it’s only costing me about 1.5 times more than my mortgage in Jersey before. I went to and got a fixed rate energy and I negotiated in the security alarm with the building manager so if you ask me it’s all about what you can get out of it to help sweeten the deal. New Yorker’s know how to wheel and deal so if you want something in this market it kind of seems like all you have to do is ask. There’s always another place to live so people are flexible!

Can't Believe I am Doing This...

Posted by Annie S. on July 14, 2010 at 1:02 PM Comments comments (1)

After a month of very little couponing...partly b/c I am VERY sick with this pregnancy and partly b/c I still learning my new area...I have made a decision.

I have to learn how to make Walmart work for me.  Yes, you read that right.  Walmart. 

You all know how much I HATE Wally world, but it is my closest store.  Meijer is now 1hr15min away, and it is becoming impossible to shop there except for REALLY good deals. I haven't stopped Meijer all together, but I really need to determine to make Walmart work for me. 

So, if you have something that excites you about Walmart...tell me about it!

Guess What....
