BVS Solitaire – Fun and a Discount!

The Tena Hootchie had waaaaaay too much fun playing the BVS Solitaire Collection of 535 games. This means addictive isn’t even the word for it lol. This bounty of just about any and all Solitaire games imaginable (Including more then 100 original games not found anywhere else) is a computer game collection download for Windows/Mac/iOS.

You can choose between different types of solitaire card games with various difficulty levels. All popular classic games are included: FreeCell, Spider Solitaire, Klondike, Accordion, Canfield, Diplomat, Golf, Pyramid, Forty Thieves, Seahaven Towers, Tri Peaks, Tri Towers, and other less known games, but all of them are fun and engaging. (Especially Tri-Peaks – that game is my jam!! – See Video Above)

We all know that it’s rough being stuck inside but thanks to some generous service providers it doesn’t have to be boring! I’ve put together a short list of services (including links) that are sure to take the edge of your social distancing blues!

Online Shopping – The New Frontier

I’ve loved online shopping since day one. From the first time I put a few items in a digital cart, plugged in my information and had it show up hassle free on my doorstep, I was hooked. It was the perfect thing for a busy 20-something with way too many irons in the fire who was trying her level best to milk 36 hours out of the 24 allotted for each day. You can shop at your leisure, minus the crowd and at any time it suits your whims and wiles. Are you awake at 2:36 AM on a Tuesday? No problem. You can sit in your computer chair and browse as many and any online shops as you want without getting weird looks from people for having on your Batman Jammies and your hair in a sloppy ponytail.

As constant as it has been the last few decades the landscape has changed recently… and I love the shift. Online shopping (or selling for that matter, but that’s another post) is no longer just something for giant merchandisers, big box stores or frilly boutiques. Now, if you want to shop on the world wide web (been a while since you’ve seen that typed out hasn’t it?) you can do it almost anywhere. But out of all of these, Facebook Marketplace is the one I want to focus on today.

You can find everything from house shoes to half million dollar homes listed for sale on Facebook Marketplace. My current Marketplace obsession is buying household cleaning products. I’m a bargain shopper to my core and it sorely pains me to have to pay anywhere close to full price for anything, so online shopping with its many deals, coupons, and rebates is most definitely the place for me. My friends call me the Deal Lady or the Coupon Queen. If they want to save on something they contact me because they know I’ll be able to find a deal of some sort in short-order.

In my area of the world, extreme couponers are on every corner. For example, I can get three bottles of Gain laundry detergent, a nine- pack of Angel Soft toilet paper, Febreeze, lotion, deodorant, dryer sheets, Puff Plus tissues, and a wide assortment of other things in a convenient bundle for about thirty bucks (some examples pictured below). Some of these extreme couponers even deliver! So if you are not up to meeting the seller in the parking lot of your local grocery store or well-lit gas station you could have them bring it right to your doorstep. Not sold on it yet? Give it a shot first-hand, pull up your Facebook, click on Home and on the left sidebar click on Marketplace and have a look around. If you have no interest in anything else listed for sale there type the word “bundle” in the  search bar at the top and see what pops up in your area. The sheer amount will likely surprise you. Household bundles, skincare bundles, and grilling bundles oh my!

Between, Kroger ClickList and the Walmart equivalent, Amazon and Amazon Pantry, Grub Hub and UPS a person could get everything they need at the click of a button if they wanted to. If nothing else these options certainly do go a long way toward freeing up a person’s time for more of the joys in life.

And if the human race needed more time for anything these last few years it is definitely joy.
