Talking Nerdy- How do you get your spreadsheet on the iPad?


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

This has to be one of the questions I get asked the most. I do all of my shopping trips on a spreadsheet. I like to update my prices while in the store. I find this much easier. I also use my spreadsheets to keep a price list. It's easier just to copy and paste the lines into my price book. Having my iPad with me in the store has simplified the process. I do have a bluetooth keyboard case for my iPad (thanks hubby for talking me into getting it) but I still like to do my spreadsheets on my … [Read more...]

Talking Nerdy- Scr.app.bk House Inventory App


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

I've been saying for a while that I needed to do a home inventory. I had a friend lose everything in a house fire and saw first hand what she had to go through to get the most she could on her claim. My friend had to list EVERYTHING in her house in order to be reimbursed from her insurance company.  I always thought that if we had a hurricane or something of that nature I could just list the items as we were throwing them out.  But if you have nothing but ashes how do you inventory that.  It's … [Read more...]

Talking Nerdy- How do you print coupons from your iPhone/iPad/iPod?


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

This is another question I get a lot- how do you print coupons from your iPhone/iPad/iPod? I always print my coupons from the coupon-wizards.com links on my laptop or desktop first. Reason being is that the site gets revenue from these prints and it is a way to support all the free things it offers without costing me a cent. Also I don't print a lot of internet printables. I follow David's suggestion of printing only high dollar coupons. I also print coupons for brands my family prefers. Now … [Read more...]

To Backup OR Not to Backup???


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Guest post by- Michael Hayes Backing up shouldn't even be a question anymore. With the emergence of the ‘Cloud’, users can now backup most of their personal files off site. I for one still have family/friends that regularly ask me to try and recover data from failed hard drives or to move their data from an old computer to a new computer. I of course still do it for them, but I also introduce them to the ‘Cloud’. I’m not going to get into the nuts and bolts of backing up to the cloud. That … [Read more...]
