VOIP, which stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol, has been around for a long, long time. You may well already have it at work, because a lot of businesses use it to save money. Well, if you’re still one of the 50% of folks who still have a land line at home, and don’t like the idea of getting rid of your old home number, maybe Ooma is the solution. Ooma works with your internet service to deliver full telephone functionality, including call blocking, voicemail, and more, without needing to pay for that other land-line coming into your home. Once you hook it up and setup the service, you can end up paying less that $10 a month for service that’s equivalent or greater than what your local provider charges up to $100 a month for. You can even port over your old number (see the help on how to do that – don’t cancel your old service until you’ve activate the new and gotten the number moved). And at higher levels of service, you can get all your home calls and voicemails on your cell phone as well. It even works with Amazon Alexa and IFTTT for all sorts of interesting possibilities! And it’s on sale today for just $63!
We own this bubble machine, and use it as part of our decorations at Halloween. It delivers a strong, steady stream of bubbles and tons of fun for the little kids who come around. Now that we’re (mostly) past the Winter, and outdoor birthday parties and other festivities will be the norm, a bubble machine can be an awesome addition for little kids and big. And this one is on sale today for just $40.
