Best Deal On Amazon Right Now

There are tons of opinions about what the best deal is on Amazon at any given time. I would argue that no matter what your preferences are or the types of things you find yourself buying on a regular basis, Amazon Prime is hands down the best deal you’re going to find on Amazon. Why? Let’s look at the benefits:

You Can Try It For Free

That’s right, you can try it with zero obligation for 30 days without paying a penny. In that 30 days, you’l get the same free shipping on Prime eligible products that you’ll get once you actually start your subscription. If you’re anything like me, that means you’re going to start having boxes arriving on your doorstep on at least a weekly basis with all sorts of things that you used to make a special trip to the store for.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I live 15 minutes away from the closest Wal-Mart or Home Depot, and the closest Best Buy is over 30 minutes away. If I can have someone bring the goods right to my front door and leave them for me, I call that a win! I save on gas and wear and tear on the car, and don’t even have to get dressed, except to go out onto the front porch!

Prime Video

Online video has been convincing more and more people to cut the cable or satellite and start streaming everything through a set top box or TV for the past few years now. I haven’t paid for cable or satellite in at least 5 years, because everything I want to watch I can find on Netflix or Amazon Prime. That’s right, Amazon Prime comes with Prime Video at no extra cost. So when you calculate that you’re spending $119 per year, that comes out to less than $10 per month for free shipping on Amazon plus the Prime Video catalog – all less than the cost of one month of Netflix!

Best Platform Bed Frames

There are a number of platform bed frames out there. You can easily spend thousands of dollars for a very nice wooden sculpted and chiseled model or a leather or fabric covered model. But over time the wood starts to look worn, or the leather starts peeling, or the fabric starts fading or showing stains. But when all you need is a basic platform to hold up your bed, why waste your hard earned dollars on something very few people will ever see? Unless you're planning on handing down your bed to your children or grandchildren as an heirloom, perhaps one of these great pieces will do the job for a fraction of the cost while lasting many years!

Why a Platform Bed Frame?

Some people just love box springs. If you're one of those people, don't worry, you can still typically use box springs with a number of platform bed frames. But the platform bed frame means that box springs aren't absolutely required. Think of it as better for the environment as well. A platform bed frame means that's just that much less "stuff" that has to be made and shipped when some simple slats that fit in a small box will do the job just fine and dandy!

Best Platform Bed Frame

This one is our favorite! At 14 inches tall, it doesn't sit so high like some beds that look like you might need a ladder, but not so low that you wonder if there's even a bed frame there. We love how it also has holes where you can attach a stylish headboard of your own choosing. It took us probably 25 minutes to put it together, and it was a lot cheaper and better made than what we had found at places like Ikea!

Need A Short Platform Bed Frame?

We've got you covered! This one is only six inches tall, and perfect for those who want a look where the bed doesn't appear to be taking up so much space in a room!

Best Mattress In A Box for 2020

Mattresses in a box have become fairly popular over the past few years. If you're anything like us, you might be rather skeptical of buying a mattress without laying on it first, right? Especially one that FedEx could bring to the door all rolled up in a box. But after a Chiropractor friend of ours recommended that we check a particular one out while shopping for a mattress for a guest room, we figured that maybe they're not so bad after all. We decided to compare the different options out there and here's the ones we found that appear to be the best in quality, value, and price.

Quality Mattresses In a Box?

Mattress quality was one of our biggest factors in making our purchase. As you may have seen around our site, we don't really do disposable for much of anything. When you buy disposable products, it costs more in the long run and has much more of a negative impact on the environment. We'll get to that later. But when you think of what a mattress is composed of, it begins to make sense that you could possibly find quality mattresses in a box. After all, have you never seen a poor quality spring mattress before? Try squishing that down into something portable.

But when you've got something like memory foam that contains so much air, it only makes sense that you could perhaps vacuum the air out of the packaging and get it to shrink down to a much smaller size and then let it re-inflate once it reaches the destination - namely your bedroom. So don't think twice about trying out one of these mattresses just because they have the ability to shrink in size due to the lack of any squeaky springs. We're sure you'll love them as much as we love ours!

Why Apartment Investing Makes Money

Why Apartment Investing Makes Money

Why does investing in multi-family apartments make money? Grant Cardone answers your questions right here. Single family homes may sound like a great investment.  But one of the things you have to look at is the amount that you spend per unit.  For instance, if you buy an $80,000 house as a rental property, how much would a comparable apartment cost for the same monthly rental income?  For that $80,000 house, you may be able to charge $600 per month in rent.  But an apartment that rents out for that same $600 per month may only cost $15k to $20k per unit.  So you could get 4 separate apartment units for the same price you paid for that $80,000 house.  How good of a deal does that house sound like now?

BMW i8 Spotted On The Streets

The BMW i8 is a beautiful example of a plug-in hybrid sports car.  While the electric only range may be lacking, this is definitely one car that turns heads on the street! As of today's date, BMW is said to be working on a fully electric version of this gorgeous mid-engined car. We're hoping to hear more about that soon!

Do It Because They Said You Couldn’t

Don't let people tell you you can't. You can. If you want something badly enough, you'll find a way to make it happen.  Whether it's losing weight, traveling the world, getting a promotion at work, starting your own business, or almost anything else. Find a way (an ethical and legal one, mind you), and make it happen!  You've got this!
