Nice, thats a good start limit for them. Smiley Happy

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Re: One to add to the Shopping Cart Trick

Nice one either way. I would prefer HSN if i had it to do over again in place of shophq. HSN shows IMO more variety of products worth some card useage enough to keep it alive.
