Because I’m a sap

I’m loving the “Words to Live By” boutique over at One Kings Lane, today. I rarely buy any kind of wall art, but I’ll admit it, the Family Rules prints are calling to me.

Don’t forget—when you sign up with them through my link, you get $15 credit towards your first $30+ purchase.

(Maybe the credit makes up for the fact that I’m going soft in my old age.)

    I have the “Family Rules” in the white/gray/gold hanging by my front door! Love it.

    I wanted to look, but the site would let me look without giving my info. I might have bought something, oh well.

    I often hear people taking issue with the register-to-browse sites, and I get that it’s annoying, but in a day/age where you can open a billion email accounts if you wish, I don’t get the big deal. Start a new email account specifically for shopping and/or junk mail and use that address to register. Or skip it. But this is a pretty common business model at this point and they’re not asking for your social security number, just an email addy. ;)

    re giving my email info (more?) on register-to-browse sites:

    Mir, maybe it’s an age-related thing. I’m a Sr. Citizen, probably mid-level computer-savvy. Keeping track of different email accounts is daunting – one is enough. And in the back of my mind, I’m concerned about the selling of email lists, more “junk,” more “spam,” anything related to not-okayed dissemination of personal information (ID theft and the consequences), and so on. I’d be open, however, to advice on how to do this safely and simply if my fears are unfounded.

    p.s. As a newish subscriber, now daily perusing your offerings looking for sales/opportunities for an upcoming grandbaby, I love your energy, approach to life, honesty, and although my “pretty” days are gone, I feel “pretty” inside.

    MsMarm, I suspect your definition of “pretty” is too narrow. I can assure you that you are indeed, quite ravishing! :)

    I would say that you are wise to be wary of giving out information unnecessarily, for sure. When you’re looking at a register-to-use-it site, though, if all they want is an email address, I’d say that’s not necessarily something to be worried about. Sure, you don’t want to be juggling multiple email accounts, but I literally have an account called “Junk” that I use for all my Internet shopping. If I’m feeling particularly wary, when I sign up I do it as M. Kamin—feels more anonymous, somehow. I will never give out birthday or street address information simply to sign up somewhere, though.

    Both Gmail and Yahoo (and probably lots of other sites) allow for quick/easy email sign-ups. I use Gmail for my “real” stuff and have my junk account over on Yahoo.

    Methinks this would make an excellent full post. Stay tuned!

    Good, because the mere fact that gmail wants me to give them my yahoo address, and
    on yahoo, multiple yahoo names all go to my main yahoo name, has an old fart like me
    completely befuddled.

    I have to chime in; I am very Internet and tech savvy and I don’t like the sign up to browse sites… More $ to save or spend elsewhere
