Computer Repair Help

I have been looking forward to doing this post. I hope it's clear and easy to understand. Let's start by saying I am not a computer whiz! Any of you who have followed my blog for any amount of time can see that I am just learning!!! So, that's why I thought this post would be an encouragement to you. Let's start at the beginning. It all began when our desktop said we had encountered a virus and we needed to click here and pay this to fix it. It was not our anti virus reporting, but it looked a lot like it. We did not click here or pay anything, but we did get infected with the XP Home Security virus. The computer came to a stand still. Slowly getting more and more incapacitated.
As I googled fixes I came across some posts on you tube for Bleeping I followed these to their website and signed up after checking them out online. I posted as a new member and very shortly I got a reply as to what I could do to start to solve this problem. The moderator walked me through step by step.  Bleeping Computer is a computer fix site for the novice. They strive to help you and me fix and learn! The website is supported by advertising. The moderators are volunteers as I understand it. The man who helped me was very patient and clear in his explanations of what I should do. He was several time zones away in the USA. It took a total of 5 days and I had a fixed computer! I learned valuable tools to better protecting my computer and you can too, just go on their website  . This post is my thank you to boopme over at Bleeping Computer and my encouragement to you in your efforts to learn more about computers and save money. If I can do can definitely do it!

Peanut Butter!!!!

I just had to quickly post this deal on Peanut Butter! At Costco you can get a 2Kg of Kraft Peanut butter, regular or light, for $3.89!!!!!
I have never tracked it this low!!! I am curious if all Costcos across Canada do similar sales, would you help me by emailing me or posting a comment as to whether or not your Costco has peanut butter on sale? Ours in Kelowna, expires in August(the peanut butter that is). What would you do with all that peanut butter you ask??? I will do a post on that shortly. If your family eats peanut butter at all, go buy some!

Washing Machine Woes

So, last week I had a bit of  washing machine troubles! One morning I woke up and found my washer was full of super wet clothes! My washer is probably 9 years old(it came with our house). I had gotten quite behind on my laundry and so a broken washer was not convenient! We ended up going to the laundromat and doing 8 loads. Now, I haven't been to the laundromat very often and so I don't have a lot of experience, but the one we visited was very nice. It was roomy, not busy(we went during the day) and the staff were very friendly! 8 loads get done a lot faster than they would at home, but it's also fairly pricey! My 8 loads cost $17.25 and that was without fully drying them(I ran out of time). I wonder if you calculated out the price of a new machine, the number of years they last, the cost of water and power, how it would compare in the long run. Now of course there is the hassle factor, not being able to do your laundry at home, having to make a special trip....Anyways, all things to factor in I guess.
So, back to my washer. Fortunately for me I have a very smart, very capable husband! He took apart my washer and quickly determined that the problem was a broken shock(or maybe both shocks...oh dear, I'm not sure if they  are called shocks or maybe stabilizers?).Anyways, off he went to get a part and a few hours later I was back to being able to use my own washing machine again!
Total cost? $89.
So, the beautiful washing machine in the picture above is not mine.....I am saving for one like this, but in the meantime, my washer is working! Thanks to my wonderful hubby!

Membership Has It's Benefits!!!

Whenever I present my course Costco memberships always come up. Are they worth it? I always say you need to figure out if you save more money than the membership fee. We get ours as a Christmas gift each year from my husband's parents. Anyways, I learned today that membership did have it's benefits! I had to blog about it, in case any of you have lost receipts and need to find them!We bought a Costco truck battery at the end of 2009 and last month it died. Costco batteries have one of the best guarantees out there at 3 years. When our battery died I went to my handy dandy file cabinet where all my receipts are. Under B for batteries I didn't find a Costco receipt! I began a furious search through a year's worth of monthly envelope files, with no luck! I was distressed as the battery would be 100% replaced, which was $95 plus tax. I basically lost $100. We bought a new battery and I continued my search. Finally, the other day we were at Costco and I got an idea. I asked the cashier if they could search my Costco American Express card and find this purchase? She said, "No problem!" Today, I went in with the battery and viola, a $106 cash card! This time membership did have it's privileges!
