Then at DiscountMAGS we go where the weekend sale theme (ends Monday night actually) is $5 per magazines per year. No camera/photo magazine but there are a few [not a lot like usual] “six degrees of separation” plus a little bit of an A/V theme under “Tech” (Stereophile and Sound-n-Vision [no, not the David Bowie box set])…

Good until August 1st, there’s an automatic in-cart sitewide 20% off discount with free US shipping at the RX Bar online shop. You see the regular price, then add the item(s) of interest to the shopping cart, and the 20% off discount appears there in the shopping cart. Note that some items have “natural flavors”. Note also that they recently expanded their product line-up and some of their new “nut butter packs” look like the RXbars on the flattened screen, so be sure you are buying the RXbars and not the nut-butter-packs [if that’s what you want]… I’ve eaten hundreds of Rxbars and look at where I am [this reads more like an anti-endorsement LOL]. My favorites in no particular order Maple Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate, and Coconut Chocolate… If you are new to this, try the Variety Packs… I haven’t tried any of their “breakfasty” stuff, so I can’t tell you anything about them [let’s not forget that cereal was invented as an anti-viagra way back; are you sure you want to be eating that? LOL {and that’s before we consider GMO, empty refined blood-sugar-spiking carbs, not-really-natural natural flavors, food colorings, food glueware, and other yucky things]

Is this turning into a Foodie Blog? Probably not πŸ™‚ Is it getting more random and out of control? Probably yes πŸ™‚

PRO TIP on Samsung Galaxy phones: if you are planning to use many of the extra features Samsung loads on the phone, it may be a good idea to buy a higher-spec phone that you would normally use (eg if you had been buying a stock-like Android phone). While you may not find a lot of their extra features useful, they do have a lot of useful features that need memory and processing power (Secure Folder, Edge Panels, S-Pens, three tier lock-screens (including the always-on-display), etc). Of course the list of what one finds useful varies by person, which is why Samsung loads it up with hundreds of extras πŸ™‚ The last time I got a new Galaxy phone, when I did the initial system update, it had over 400 (!!!) apps pre-installed. LOL. So much for going away from the TouchWiz overstuffing πŸ™‚
