Savings Ideas -

It's ALWAYS my goal to show you different ways to $ave Time, $ave Money, and $ave Gas by Shopping Online and I have a couple different web sites that I want to tell you about over the next couple of days that I think can help you do just that!

The first one I just found is called "" and let me just tell you that if you are a "comparison shopper" then this is a GREAT place for you. With more than two dozen price comparison engines and the ability to calculate the total cost of the item (plus the shipping and taxes) makes this a must SEE site this Christmas season!

I got this from their website... offers the best online shopping experience. Our unique shopping site offers extensive inventory at the lowest prices by comparing products, product reviews and merchant deals for all of your shopping needs. Browse thousands of popular brands, hot products, featured deals and find exactly what you want at discount prices. Shopping online has never been easier!

We've got MILLIONS of products from over a thousand stores - all with FREE SHIPPING! Need to save money on your early holiday shopping? Hate paying extra for shipping? There’s no better place to shop online than!

So check them out when you get a chance...I'm sure you'll be happy that you did!

Ok, here we go…here are the “Special Instructions” for the Mel’s World Give Away at the Christian Women Tweet Up…are you ready?

You’re going on an “ADVENTURE”. You see, I am ALL about getting to know you, but for me to get to know you, you need to get to know a little bit about me and what Mel’s World is all about, right?

So, we’re going on a little Scavenger Hunt between my TWO blogs (Mel’s World with Melissa Mashburn AND Mel’s World Shopping Biz). Are you ready?

Here’s how it works, I am going to ask you 5 questions and the answers will be found on one of my blogs. You will comment here in Mel’s World with your answers, & I will draw a winner from those of you with the right answers.

And the games begin…

1) What is the name of the store in which I was talking about “Gift Cards” on the Mel’s World Shopping Blog?

2) What is the name of the website I like to use to get deals on my shipping costs? (Hint - It’s in a post & listed in my side bar on the Mel's World Shopping Biz blog)

3) What’s the “tag line” I use to sign off on all my posts on the Mel’s World Shopping Biz blog?
4) What’s the ministry verse on the Mel's World with Melissa Mashburn blog header?

5) What's the name of the weekly devotionals I write on Sunday's over in Mel's World with Melissa Mashburn?

Have fun, enjoy the fun, and I’ll see you on Twitter. Remember…you can “follow me” by clicking here ->
http://www/ I’m looking forward to following you too!

PS - For EXTRA entries (after you have answered the questions) you can;

1) Add the Mel's World Speak to My Soul Devotional button to your blog,

2) Add the Mel's World Shopping Biz button to your blog,

3) Subscribe to the either of the blogs,

4) Tweet out about this giveaway during the #CWTU.
