For the past several years I have used Turbo Tax online to file my taxes for free for State and Federal. This year I noticed that if you hold an HSA you have to use a paid edition of Turbo Tax and you also have to pay to file your state taxes. (It was going to cost around $80! I might as well take it to an accountant.... yeesh!) Thumbs down, Turbo Tax! :( :(

Discover Credit Card Dispute Customer Service Review:
One thing I love about the digital age and online banking is that if you have an issue, a lot of times it can be resolved online without having to wait on hold on the phone for ages. I found this to be true with a recent issue I encountered regarding a charge on my Discover Card.
2 months ago, I ordered some natural laundry stuff off of Amazon. I ordered some Inco Little Helpers Wool Dryer Balls & some NaturOli Soap Nuts ( Soap Berries?).
I wanted to give them some time of testing before I wrote a little post. I do 2-3 loads of laundry per week, over about 8 weeks... I thought that was a pretty decent length of time.
So the Dryer Balls are a natural way to soften fabric without any chemical fabric softeners or disposable sheets. They come in a nice drawstring bag. I definitely feel my laundry has come out nice and fluffy and not static-y which is great! The listing says they don't make any noise during drying, but I kind of disagree. While the dryer cycles I can hear them hitting against the inside of the dryer. It isn't alarming or inconveniently loud, but it's definitely something I can hear. Just like if you have a big buckle or zipper that you hear clang against the door while it's drying... same kind of thing. My dryer is in an enclosed laundry nook anyways, so it's really not obtrusive.
One great idea to freshen the scent of clothes is toadd a few drops of essential oils to these balls before tossing them in. I loved this suggestion, but found that no matter how many drops of oils I added to the dryer balls, I still couldn't smell them by the end of the cycle! I'm not sure if theorange oil I used was not good quality, or if I need to add them in the last few minutes of the dry cycle only. Do you have any tips?
Overall I am very pleased with this eco-friendly laundry purchase and will absolutely continue to use these wool dryer balls.
Stop by tomorrow for a post on the soap nuts! :o)
Find It On Amazon:
I have to tell you I was skeptical when DH told me he signed up forHP's Instant Ink program. Basically you pay a certain amount of money per month to HP to print a certain number of pages. They automatically send you new cartridges as needed. I thought we were legit going to be getting ripped off every month.
(I was pleasantly surprised)
"Supposedly" there was a substantial savings to this.
We have never gone over our printing amount, and in fact when you have extra pages leftover, they are in a rollover bank, so you don't ever lose out on pages you've paid for, if you will.
I used to be scouring the deals at Staples, our local office supply store, trying to see when ink was on sale and how to use my rewards to get a discount and I definitely got some good deals, but it also took a lot of time, mental energy, and work planning when to purchase and driving to the store etc.
Now that we haveHP Instant Ink, I love it and I wouldn't look back. Based on what HP is telling me, I'm getting a good value. But even if I wasn't, the sheer convenience of this program is worth the cost to me. But I really do think I am getting a good value.
At $5/month x 12 months thats only $60. To buy a package of ink for our printer (1 XL black and 1 each of cyan, magenta, and yellow) would cost around $100 on Amazon or Staples. And I know we used to replace ink more often than once a year. So I think I am genuinely saving cash, time, effort, gas, mental energy, and more with this program.
I highly recommend it!!!
