I won a holiday about 10 months ago to the USA, but on a disability pension, it is hard to save up as we have to pay for flights (even though they are discounted) and spending money. It is a 19 nights, 21 days in different areas of the states and 5 nights in Mexico. Yes, it is exciting, but how on earth could I raise at least $10,000 in the time we can take it. So, searching on the net for my grandson’s birthday present I thought, I wonder if I can do this. I spent months looking into it, signed up for a free website, found a site where they can build the site for me, but then I had to build it. Weeks later I have almost finished the site, it will be an ongoing website, changing all the time, but some of the shops I have online are amazing. One is where they do printing on wood. For example, they can do wedding invitations and Thank you cards with whatever you want printed on wood, then you can send them in wooden envelopes. Amazing. I have Jewellery, good quality and cheap, up to 90% off. Kids toys, Furniture, Baby goods, Flowers, Outdoor goods, Tools, Hardware etc. There are the most beautiful and the cheapest Wedding Dresses I have ever seen. In Tassie, they have year 10 graduation dinners. It cost me an absolute fortune for both my kids to go to the special dinner. A suit for my son, and my daughters gown cost hundred’s. I have some for around $20. Amazing…

This just shows those mum’s at home, if you want to earn some extra money, all you need to do is think of an idea, look into it, really study it. There are e-books everywhere really cheap. Make sure you spend the time reading. Now, I just need people to go to my site and buy things. If you want to do something, you can go to the website and click on ‘Contact Us’ and I would be willing to help you with a blog or something like that.

Wish me luck, I really hope this business will be successful. xxx Dee

  • i hope everything is running smooth for you now! have you had that holiday?


  • Good luck i really hope this new adventure does well for you and you get to go on that holiday :)

    • Thank you Kelly.
      I am so excited about the website. After many months seeking help from mentors, business associates, websites etc etc. I wanted to make sure I was doing the right thing. Especially just to make that little bit of extra income.

      I am really hoping we get on that trip. It was funny when I found out I had won a trip for 4, I knew my son and his partner couldn’t go as they have 3 littlies ( my granddaughters – 10 mths, 2 and ‘almost’ 5). So I had to think about my other kids, but I really wanted this trip to be special, maybe renew our vows after 28 yrs of marriage. We need about $10,000 to cover us for flights and spending money, some meals too. It is a 21 day holiday from Orlando, Florida, Fort Lauderdale, cruise the bahamas, then back to Fort Lauderdale, then onto Puerto Vallerto in Mexico for 5 nights, then to Las Vegas and fly home. We decided to do Las Vegas last, then we can’t spend all our money at the start of the holidays. lol

      I am really happy with the look of the website, I hope you have had a chance to look at it. I still have a little bit of work, some categories go to other stuff, but I have some new banners to go on the site.
      It is always worth going back, coming up to Father’s Day in September (in Australia), some of the shops have specials for Father’s Day so I will have to advertise it.

      Take care and thank you for your kind words. xxxx Dee

There are products from all over the world. Give it a try and let me know.

    Take care and If you wish to make some money online, let me know, I am willing to help anyone who wishes to do similar online business. Anyone can do it. I did. xxx Dee


  • Good luck I hope it goes well and you get the money for your holiday


  • Good on you, Dee! It’s inspiring to hear your story, and I wish you nothing but the most amazing success with this new venture of yours. It goes to show that it is possible to do anything you want to, with some research, hard work and determination.

    • Thank you everyone for your inspiring comments.

      PLEASE NOTE: There is a problem with my website http://www.allbargainsanddiscounts.com but should be fixed by tomorrow, sorry for the inconvenience.

      I look forward to your comments on your purchasing experience.

  • It is inspiring to read your journey Dee, I’m going to the site as soon as I submit this!


  • Good luck on ur new site I hope u do well with it


  • Thank you everyone for your lovely comments and best wishes,

    I would love it if you would re-visit the website on a regular basis, like once a month, to see if you are happy with the site. I am in the process of finishing of areas that hadn’t been completed, such as if you click on Travel & Accommodation now you will see some different ads, I am waiting for one to come in today. I have holidays up to 70% off, Safari’s etc.
    If you purchase something along the way, please let me know if you enjoyed the experience. If you had any problems etc. I will be adding one site where you join for a fee, then everything on the site is free. The more you pay, the more you get for free. I want to make sure the site has a couple of exquisite items, but the bulk will be up to 90% off normal prices on a variety of goods, clothes etc. I just bought my granddaughters some clothes on one site – mrp – and the clothes were beautiful and really cheap. The girls are 9 months, 2 yrs, and nearly 5 years old. Socks, leggins, top and bottom sets, shoes etc. For the 3 girls I got whole outfits and extra’s, and it was only $58, if I bought them anywhere else, it would have been almost $200. The quality is fantastic. It didn’t take long either. Real pretty, and the boys wear was good too.

    I wish you all the best, please remember if you want to start earning a bit of money, and you don’t know what to do, give me a holler, and I will see if I can help. There are so many opportunities out there, but alot are scams. I joined one company and on my first day I found they were money laundering. It was terrifying when I reported them to the police.

    Thank you again and I wish you all the best. xxx Dee


  • I checked out your site. Certainly has a lot of things to offer. Well done.


  • I’m going to check out your site. Congratulations on your holiday win as well. I found your story really inspiring. I’ve always dreamt of some way I could make some extra money in a similar sort of fashion but it’s hard to know where to start or what to market. It’s wonderful of you to offer help to others. I’m wishing you all the best of success. I’m originally from Tassie as well and know how expensive the leavers dinners can be. Would be great to have your dresses as options.

    • Hi Heidi,
      Thank you for your lovely comments and your visit to the site. At the moment there are still some corrections to be made and a few more shops to put on. I still have e-courses and places like Deals Direct, hopefully and a couple of others.

      I meant what I said, if you would like some help at any time to get some type of business off and running, please leave me a message or you can go to the site and send a message through ‘contact us’ page. just remind me you are from here. There are so many options and it is the way to go now with shopping. I send presents to my grandkids on the mainland by ordering online and having things sent directly to them. it makes it much easier and cheaper.

      Nice to see an ex-tassie person on here.

      Take care and I look forward to hearing from you at some time.

      kind regards

      Dee xx


  • Good Luck, Looks like the trip to the US is going to pay off.


  • good on you and I hope it takes off for you and you can always find things cheap when you put in some effort and look around.


  • Good luck with your new endeavor. I hope it goes well.
