Broke Again!


Looks like I will be broke again next month! Smiley

Remember the G8 that B got me as a gift? Well, my mom really loved mine when she saw it so I got her a white one for Mother's Day. Last week was my Dad's birthday and after much pondering and worrying, I came up with the perfect gift for him - a new wallet stuffed with cash, which was a big hit! And now, it's my brother's birthday next week so I have to fork out another big amount for his gift, which by the way I have absolutely no idea what to get as of yet! adus

So once again, I need some suggestions on what to get for my brother for his 28th birthday this 4th of June! Someone suggested I check out this awesome site called
PickleBid, which offers brand new products at incredible discounts. Apparently I can save up to 90% on popular electronics and gadgets. tepuktangan

How it works is by bidding on discount Gift Cards. By the way, PickleBid.com is a penny auction site and should not be confused with eBay in any way. Once you're registered as a member, you can start to buy your bids. With each bid placed on any given item, the price of the auction item increases by a penny or ten cents, depending on the auction. The bids will cost you $0.60 a piece and you receive 3 free bids for registering.

I'm always a little confused with all these auction sites but
Pickle Bid is the first easy one to understand. I just explained how it works to B and the more I think about it, the more enticed I am to give it a shot! But first things first and so far, these are what I have in mind to get my bro for his birthday - a watch, a cologne or something for his Mazda RX8. Any other ideas while I break open my piggy bank?garupale

Gadgets are always a hit with guys.. but I say a nice watch makes a wonderful gift as well. The men in my family all have a love for watches, so that's one gift that won't go wrong. But whatever it is that you choose to give your bro, I'm sure he'll love it no matter what!

Hi Marzie,

Yeah I also think gadget is the best present for men. Maybe you can buy some designer watch for him. Or new sunglasses! BTW, my grandma also received a wallet stashed with money for her last birthday :)
