FREE BOOKS? Not quite, but close. Joining PaperbackSwap.com is free & lets you in on books galore. All you pay is 49 cents per swap. How does it work? You list the books you're ready to part with. When a member requests one of your books, you print out a media rate postage wrapper (cheapest way to send) & pop it in the mail. When that member receives your book, you receive a point for sending it. You can use that point, plus 49 cents, to request whatever book you want. (A few books may cost 2 points, but most are 1.) And don't let the name fool you - the site includes paperbacks, hardcovers & even audiobooks. They also have 2 sister sites: SwapaDVD.com & SwapaCD.com.

I'VE BOUGHT OVER A DOZEN OF THESE $290 SEVEN-NIGHT VACATIONS! The website SkyAuction.com sells a lot of certificates for 1-week stays in unused RCI timeshare units all over the world. The certificate typically costs you $270 & then there's a processing fee of $20. Before you buy, click the View Availability Here tab in the listing to see what units are available where & when so you'll know whether or not you want to buy a certificate. Upgrades, many dates & other factors add additional costs to many units - some absolutely outrageous. But if you can find a unit with no added fees, you'll land a great bargain. No, you don't have to be an RCI member to buy one o these. Yes, they will "offer" you a tour & sales pitch, but just say, "NO!" You aren't required to attend anything & you'll be treated as a welcome guest. The Orlando area has tons of available condos if you're thinking of a trip to Disney.

Go to church. Be the church each and every day. Be a blessing to others. "Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean He no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? As the Scriptures say, 'For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.' No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us" (Romans 8:35-37, NLT).
