The definition of heaven...

...for a person obsessed with catalogs and information and possessed of a healthy credit card balance:

Froogle is a new service from Google that makes it easy to find information about products for sale online. [...] As with all other Google search results, Froogle ranks store sites based only on their relevance to the search terms you've entered. Google does not accept payment for placement within our actual search results, and advertising that appears to the right of Froogle search results is always clearly identified with the label "Sponsored Links."

::sigh:: And the definition of hell for a person with the first two qualifications but not the third.

Yeah. Although I've always had a habit of living vicariously through catalogs when I'm not as flush as I'd like to be (like now), so it's still fun for me.

My problem is that I'm no longer used to being strapped for cash, so I tend to order stuff I can't afford. :-/ Good and bad, that. Good that most of the time I'm doing pretty well. Bad that when I'm not, I make matters worse for myself.

Yeah...getting used to a different cash flow is difficult.

I don't buy all that much from Amazon because its information collection practices annoy me (I don't care that "customers who wear clothes also bought..." and I did not make the page they said I made). But Google so far is still wearing a white hat. Makes it a more tempting retail source. :-)

You've tried embarrassment. You've tried peer pressure. Still need to improve your bottom line? Try
