An Ode to the Internet
I'm pretty much attached to some sort of web-enabled device 24 hours a day, so it's no surprise that when I need something, my first instinct is stand up and purposefully shout "TO THE INTERNET!"
|It's a lot like this, only replace the batmobile with a MacBook. |
Also, I would never wear head-to-toe lycra.
1) Instead of Photoshop (or its WAY cheaper little bro Photoshop Elements) try Pixlr for all your layering and photo doctoring needs.
2) Speaking of the doctor, if you've got a mild - but annoying - case of the sniffles, try a quick self-diagnoses on WebMD's Symptom Checker (It goes without saying that you should see an *actual* doctor if things seem really out of whack. Trust your gut. Especially when it hurts.)
3) And speaking of health, get healthy with Spark People in lieu of a personal trainer. You can track your food intake, weight, get meal plans, do workout videos, and get group support for FREE!
4) Need to add up all those savings for tax time? Instead of an accountant, use free tax software like Turbotax. Cha-ching!
Which online resources do you guys use to save money?
