Top 5 Amazon Filler Item Finders To Qualify For Free Shipping

If you have ever done any shopping on Amazon.com, you may notice that the online retailer offers something called Super Saving Shipping (SSS). It’s simply a free shipping option on orders that are $25 or more. There are, however, a couple of restrictions. To take advantage of SSS, the items that you place in your shopping cart have to be eligible, the shipping speed is 5-9 business days (usually a bit slower than standard), and you must ship to a single address only in the United States. You can read all the fine print here. You can sure save a reasonable amount of dough scoring free shipping when you shop at Amazon, but what happens when your total comes up just a few dollars or cents shy of the $25 minimum? That’s when you need an Amazon filler item, something that’s usually small and cheap, but also eligible for SSS so that you can just get by without paying for shipping.

5 Geeky Plants To Grow This Spring

I’m willing to argue that gardening is one of the first geeky hobbies. I mean, before the advent of television and video games, botanists and hobbyists alike have been categorizing seeds and experimenting with the plant world for time out of mind. There’s just something really captivating about the combination of science and aesthetics—not to mention culinary possibilities. I started gardening along with my mom, who’s one of the most talented gardeners I’ve ever seen. She doesn’t garden by the book, but by what she likes—every one of the flowers in her garden has a story and a reason to be just where it’s placed. Suffice it to say, people often stop by her house just to view the landscape (in the summertime it really looks like a professionally landscaped park!). But, for me personally, nothing quite gets me as excited as useful plants. Oh, I love flowers (peonies being among my favorite), but but right about the time I graduated high school I started learning about herbs and vegetables, and it literally transformed the way I viewed gardening.

10 Improvements You Can Make to Your Resume Right Now

I spent several years behind a desk at an employment agency. The first thing we would ask any client was how recently they had updated their resume. The question’s objective wasn’t really about making sure that every applicant had their most recent job down on paper — instead, we wanted a chance to assess just how bad each resume was. Some people had well-crafted documents ready to send out immediately, but a surprising number had more of a rough draft. When we ‘updated’ a resume, we could address the other errors that we found. Most errors are actually easy fixes: just running down the checklist below could whip the average resume into shape in a matter of minutes.

10 Lies Most Parents Tell Their Children

The average parent will tell their child about 3000 "white lies" during their childhood, according to a study in the United Kingdom. If that number actually sounds low to you, you're probably a parent. Parents lie to their kids for all sorts of reasons -- to protect them from the outside world, to keep them from harm, and to make themselves, or their kids, feel better. Some of the newer theories of parenting purport that telling your child any type of lie, small or otherwise, is bad. They advise telling young children the truth about Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy as early as possible. But how much fun is that, for kids and for parents? Kids need to learn at an early age that lies are a part of life.
