Do A General House Cleaning Before The Trip

Before we know it, our ticket reservations will be confirmed in no time.  And as part of the travel preparation, we already saved money for the air tickets.  It is the fifth month of the year already.  Wow!

We already planned our house cleaning before the trip.  Two weeks before the departure, we are going to do a general house cleaning that includes polishing the furniture, scrubbing the floors, and tidying the fireplace.  We are going to use the blomus fireplace tool set again.

Scrubbing the kitchen floors need a lot of effort because food particles get stuck everywhere.  I wish we had a blomus kitchen so it will be easy to clean the sink.  My time is spent most in the kitchen so I want it to be cleaned well.  Blomus stainless sink would be nice but we have to think about it.  Maybe when we get back from vacation, our next project is home improvement.

Entertaining Travel Gadgets

It is nice to bring a reading and activity materials when traveling on a bus, on a plane, or in a car.  A novel, a couple of favorite magazines, and puzzle books (like Sudoku and crossword puzzles) can be very entertaining.  Unless you are not interested in this type of hobby, another way to kill time is…sleeping.  Hahaha!

Kidding aside, bringing bulky reading materials can be handful.  There are gadgets that you can get as travel companion.

iPad – a very handy, light gadget to carry anywhere.  Wi-fi available and no need for keyboard.

Nook – a smart way to carry for reading.  Loaded with the  favorite books, magazines, and activity, this gadget is good for book enthusiasts.  Free apps for Nook are available for download which adds to the package.

iPhone – who doesn’t have one nowadays?  Me!  Hahaha!  This e-gadget brings the Internet, wireless telecommunication, games, music and even movies convenient to users.  Photo sharing is easier too!

These gadgets truly give us lots of fun especially those who love surfing the web and, also, if we are traveling overseas.  We can get wi-fi Internet access in most areas in big cities of our destination.  I love the privilege of modern technology.

Saving Money On Textbooks

I was not really aware about book rentals until someone told me that I can rent one online.  My husband said it is possible and I can rent textbooks too, as many as I want.  What a nice idea.  He is open about the thought that I can go back to school after our vacation to the Philippines this year.  The idea of going back to school came to me one day when I talked to one of my friends in Fort Worth.  She is going to take a short-term course, maybe online.  I am interested to things like that because personal growth is very important to me.

Of course, there will be lots of paperwork and textbooks involved.  I do not want to spend a lot of money on textbooks that will only be used once.  Rather, textbook rentals will be a good idea.  Since I like browsing the Internet search for valuable references, I bumped at CampusBookRentals.com immediately.  The company offers textbook rentals service for a reasonable price.  They are not strict on rental policy.
How does it work?:

College students can also rent textbooks from the site.  Affordable rental rates are available with the textbooks related to the field of study.  This is also a very beneficial resource for college students who want to rent school books instead of buying very expensive ones.
