The Rainy Day Designer Needs Your Vote

0 pennies earned

We recently got a request from one of our readers to help bring awareness to his design at Uneetee. Although Shirts on Sale is not a platform for that kind of dialogue, this sideblog provides an excellent venue for such a conversation. Read Troy's explanation of what he hopes to accomplish with this shirt design and vote if you support his work and/or motives.

Three years ago in high school my teacher told me something I wish I had listened more closely to. He told us, “you might be an artist person and enjoy it very much but you have to realize that not all talented people get paid.” Three years later I am living through that exact scenario.

This is not the life and times of a famous person. This is not the work of a lifetime. This is my realization.  I am just one person trying to have some imprint on life.

Firstly I don't consider myself to be less fortunate. I have lived life to its fullest as we all try. I am a college graduate who can no longer live by the concept of just covering my expenses. Living this way will stress those you love and you will always have something looming over you like bills, but worse then anything is the thought of failing.

From one designer who is struggling to live or rather living to struggle. I want to pass on the advice that no diploma can guarantee your happiness and fulfilling your passion won't always cover your expenses. You have to learn early on that you will have to give and take to survive.

I would like to ask for your help but want people to understand why I need the help. I have entered into the T-shirt design contest. The grand prize for winning is $1500. I don't want to win just for the money. Yes, it would be a huge relief and help get me off my feet but more than that I want proof that I can succeed as an artist. To know that my work doesn't just get passed over.

I understand as an artist that I haven't reached my full potential yet but I am still young and learning as I go. That is why I need your help most of all. The choices I make now may decide whether I can continue to be an artist or if I have to give in and admit defeat. I am not afraid of losing the contest, but I am afraid of losing faith in myself as an artist.

Please help support me and show the world that even a rainy day designer can see the light of day again.

Thank you, 
The Rainy Day Designer
Troy Hyndman

Please Help Find This Fake Chest T-shirt

3 pennies earned

We just got a note from a reader looking for this fake abs shirt worn by Jack Black at Sundance last year and criticized by Andy at Hide Your Arms.

I've searched high and low for this t-shirt (on the Google) and only came up with the most disgusting fake chest tshirt in the world (make sure you're sitting down before you click that link) and a paltry Zazzle alternative.

Lots of people at TMZ are also looking for this shirt. I know that you're a more resourceful lot than those celebrity-loving underachievers. Please let us know if you've seen this shirt available in a store or online.

20 Worthless Pieces of Junk You Buy

0 pennies earned

The kids at Walletpop have put together an interesting list of worthless junk they think people should avoid and the Consumerist people have conveniently taken their annoying slideshow and condensed it to a single list.

Although we agree with almost everything on the list, don't take away our rice cookers! We thought about arguing for the shoe inserts too, but maybe they are just a waste.

And thankfully they pull back on their recommendation to avoid Polaroid Cameras. They appreciate the artistic appeal of this unique medium and probably regret that they added it in the first place, but couldn't think of something better to take its place.

20: Rice Cookers
19: Shoe Inserts
18: Polaroid Camera
17: The Iron
16: Hobby Kits
15: The Tie Rack
14: Giveaway Thumb Drives
13: Trade Show Swag
12: Bargain DVDs
11: Ear Candles
10: Books in a Kindle World
9: Home Theater Sound Systems
8: Ice Cream Makers & Bread Machines
7: VCRPlus Gizmos
6: Ionic Breeze
5: Single-Slot Piggy Banks
4: Ab Rollers
3: Radar Detectors
2: Wipe Warmers
1: Happy Meal Toys
Did we mention you can vote up (or down) the items you have a special feeling by checking them out on the website?

On one of your return trips, don't forget to leave a comment letting us know if there anything you don't think deserves to be here or think of a missing item that does?

13 Awesome Money Saving Sites

3 pennies earned

Wise Bread, a website that hasn't yet made it to our feed reader, put out a recent article that highlights thirteen of their favorite money-saving websites. Of course we're sad that Shirts on Sale didn't make the list, but we understand that people --silly, silly people-- still see inexpensive boutique t-shirts as a limited-audience sort of pursuit.

We use most of these in our regular deal hunting, but there were a few new sites as well:

There are 3 reasons we really like Retail Me Not: Huge database of online coupon codes and printable in-store coupons; It's like a virtual coupon organizer that's always there when you're shopping; Users vote on the reliability of coupons, so the coupon usually works the first time we try it.

Sure, Fat Wallet's got a huge forum community helping us weed out the bad deals and find the really hidden gems. Yeah, there's a big coupons database too. Those are both awesome parts of Fat Wallet, but what gets us really excited is... cashback shopping!

Forget about manually comparing dozens of confusing plans. Let BillShrink do the work for you and save money within 5 minutes.

eCoupons has a no nonsense website that looks very similar to hundreds of other online coupon resources. But if you look closer, you'll find three hidden gems of the bargain hunting world.

Weird name but incredibly cool concept. Zilok is basically "Craigslist for rentals". You can rent your stuff out or rent someone else's stuff for a day.

Brad's Deals is unique because there's one passionate bargain hunter behind it all -- Brad Wilson.

Sweepstakes Advantage is really the only choice for sweepers looking for a site that is both comprehensive and trustworthy.

One of the easiest way to save money is to setup an automatic transfer from your checking to your savings account at regular intervals (for example, when paychecks are deposited). That way, you're paying yourself before you have a chance to spend all that money in your checking account. You can do that and more with SmartyPig.

Deal Catcher is one of the largest deals websites around. The deals are published by a full-time staff, which ensures that they're of the highest quality.

Current Codes is a no nonsense coupons and discount code database. There's no complex navigation, image-heavy decoration, or any of the other non-essential things that clutter up websites.

Online since 1999, TechBargains has been saving me money on computer components and other electronics since the last decade.

Do you love entering giveaways on blogs? Then Prizey was built just for you.

Prices and Coupons bridges the gap between price comparison and coupon codes.
