  1. Laurie I’m so excited, thank you so much!! I just made myself an inexpensive jewelry organizer (see blog post last week) and now I’ve got a spot perfect for my new necklace 🙂

    What do I have to do?
    Thanks again girl, you are awesome!!

  2. Ahh. Now that I look back, I see that Anonymous is also referring to the 2008 Top Tips for Junkie’s.

    That is called a “sneeze file” and it is for marketing purposes. It’s unfortunate that the Tip Junkie Awards and the 2008 Top Tips for Junkie’s fell on the same week.

    I had meant to feature the 2008 Top Tips for Junkies in January, but I had my survery instead.

    Now that I’m feeling a bit more myself, it’s catch up time.

    I’m sure loyal Tip Junkie’s will overlook this faux pas and just enjoy the fun ideas. 😉

  3. I’ve completed over 700 posts and linked to over 1000 people’s blogs directly.

    However, The Tip Junkie Awards featured the best tips featured on TIP JUNKIE. I thought I’ve made that pretty clear over the past month.

    You must be a new reader.

  4. That was rude. Netiquette, would be to not post anonymously if you have something to add.
    I think your site is wonderful! Tip Junkie is my favorite blog to visit keep up the good work!

  5. You know what would be neat? If you actually linked to these people’s blogs instead of linking back to yourself 45978964156 times. Learn some netiquette.
