Top 5 Hotels In Niagara Falls

I know I haven't posted here in a long time. When it hasn't been too hot out I have been outside working on the house or playing with the baby, and when it has been too hot we have been laying about the living room in the hopes of not melting into puddles on the floor. I promise soon I'll be back to baking and Warcraft (I even started playing Diablo - I suck at it) and trying out a couple other frugal household things I've come across.

In the mean time, why don't you check out this little article written by HotelProps.com
Those of you traveling into the Niagara area might find it handy when picking a hotel since there are a *slew* of them in this city.

LikeNet.ca - Getting Paid To Like Stuff! 250 point bonus!

Now let me start by saying this is not some get-rich-quick kind of mess.
LikeNet was mentioned here awhile ago as a little business based out of British Columbia, Canada and what they are in the business of doing is getting your company/page/etc some traffic. They have a few ways of doing that via Facebook likes, Twitter mentions, +1's on Google and that sort of thing, and those of us they send these opportunities to have the ability to make money by doing so. Even if that day there is no opportunities for you to take advantage of they always seems to have bonus codes to find on sites or in their emails, raffles and 50/50 draws going on right on their own website.

To-date just by giving a few likes, keeping up on their codes and doing my daily lucky button press I am up to 2253 points (1 point = $0.01) and the automatically cash you out at $35.
And in 3 hours time, if they can get to 9000 members (they were at about 8200 yesterday) they will give every account a 250 point credit, with the chance of referring the 9000th member and getting 9000 points! That's right.... $90.00!!!

 Its just so easy I can't see why you wouldn't sign up now.

Superpoints Surprise Changes May 2012

I just caught wind of these changes to their site/rewards....and it appears to be spreading like wild fire. Alot of unhappy people, myself included, maybe its time to explore other websites.
In a nutshell....rewards now cost more points, like 100+ more points each. And they have capped points earned from referrals. For people always getting new referrals, this means pretty much nothing, but for the little users like myself...It is now creeping closer to being a waste of my time.

Go read their blog for yourself - let me know what you think?

Now I already use Swagbucks (which requires less points for cashouts and such and I enjoy,its dead easy)
What other sites do people use that are actually worth the time to do and worth mentioning on blogs/facebook/twitter?

Oh, and Canadians looking to transition off Superpoints and onto something just as easy and more rewarding?
Try Likenet, its another one that has the ability to earn you money without having a zillion referrals - I only have 2!

Home Made Arrowroot Cookies Recipe

Today's adventure into baking was another easy recipe that I found on the internet. Why the search? After 15 months Peanuts (the baby) has finally sorted out just taking bites of things instead of trying to jam the entire piece of food/object into his mouth. I had purchased Mum Mums before, but I figured if *I* didn't like the taste of it, why should I feed it to baby? Then I remembered Arrowroot Biscuits, I've had them here and there over the years and I don't remember them tasting bad....but then I saw their ingredient list.

Want to see it? Here's Gerbers Arrowroot Cookie ingredient list:

I highlighted the arrowroot for you...since it's lost in a sea of all kinds of other crap. Don't believe me? Have a peek for yourself.

Now here is the home made versions recipe:

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
Cream butter or margarine and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla.
Stir remaining ingredients together and add. Mix well.
Roll 1/8 inch thick on floured surface. Cut into any shape you want. Prick with fork. Grease baking sheet. Bake in 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven until golden, about 8 to 10 minutes.

 The only change I made to this recipe was a little less sugar and a little water sprinkled in since it seemed to be a very dry recipe.

And voila -
Arrowroot Bats!

Do You Know Your Net Worth?

I just came upon another good post written up by the one & only Mr. Canadian Budget Binder.
This time he is taking a look at overall financial health, including where budgeting has got them so far and plans to further reduce their monthly grocery budget (you should also check out the monthly Grocery Game Challenge ). He has even provided a downloadable spreadsheet that helps you calculate your net worth, an important tool when directing yourself down the path of your financial future.
