Holiday Update


Just wanted to let everyone know that posting will be sporadic until after the first of the year.  I am busy preparing for Christmas this week.  Then immediately after Christmas, we will be enjoying a visit with my in-laws.  I will not be posting during that week at all.  So if you submit any listings by email for our daily roundup during that time (especially after the 25th), please be advised that they may not be posted until after the first of the year.  Winners for the 2 GBG giveaways will be drawn and posted as I can get on to the computer.

I wish everyone a joyous holiday season and a happy new year!

Mouse Envy Review and Giveaway



Most people don't get excited by their computer mice, but Mousenvy is out to change that.  With over 40 cool styles to choose from, chances are they have a mouse that will fit your style. 

When I was contacted by Mousenvy to review their product, I jumped at the chance.  Prior to this review, I was using an old trackball mouse.  You know those old mice...  you have to clean them and even then, they still don't track cleanly.  I have been battling my old mouse since almost the beginning.


Mousenvy sent me an adorable Hawaiian print mouse to try out.  Cute looking, but not so girly my husband won't use it.  What I love best about this mouse is that it is optical, which means no more trackball to clean!  It works just great!  I should also mention that it was a snap to install.  I just plugged it into the USB port and the computer installed it for me.  No additional software needed.  It was done in 15 seconds tops.  

Mousenvy has a great selection of novelty mice.  With such a nice variety, I am sure there would be a mouse there to suit anyone's tastes.  Here are some of of my favorites:

 



They even have travel mice for laptops with retractable USB cords, such as this Butterfly mouse. 




About their products

  •  Functions like a normal mouse with right, center, and left-click buttons
  •  Patented rubberized non-slip ScrollBall to speed through long documents or Web pages
  •  The unique shapes fit any hand size and most are ideal for both left and right-handers
  •  The latest in 800dpi optical technology allows you to navigate with better speed, accuracy and reliability
  • No additional software needed- just plug into your USB or PS2 port.
  • Guaranteed to work right out of the box on both PCs and Macs, and on older computers
  • Never needs cleaning
  • System Requirements: Apple MacOS X or later, Microsoft Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista
  • 3 year warranty

Featuring a blend of design and function, a computer mouse from Mousenvy is guaranteed to liven up your workspace.  A Mousenvy novelty mouse would make a great gift for that hard to buy for person on your list!



With most priced at just $19.99, their mice are not only ultra cool, but they are affordable too!
Don't want to wait to win one?  Click here to purchase direct from Mousenvy.
