    Why would I use something that has fifteen different buttons when I could use something that has just one button…A pretty secretary that is.

    Hmmm..may be because she wouldn’t accept an autopay of $66.82 monthly for all incoming and outgoing.

    Pedro, a pretty secretary might be able to make you an envy among your friends.. but it probably wouldn’t help you towards being frugal! 🙂

    That sounds like a handy thing to do – I normally see something in a store and then only check prices once I get home.

    Also, didn’t know about the Google Product Search SMS service, might give that a try too as I often use that when sat at my computer.
