  • Entityqueue Vs. Flag Vs. Flag Lists | Jay L.ee
    A general Wish List feature at various online stores Here is a list of what makes this module different I Entityqueue is mainly for admins and Flag Lists is mainly for general users Flag lies somewhere in between where both admins and general users can manipulate it in some way II Unlike Flag Lists the users cannot change the title since the admin initially creates the flag But they can add whatever entity they want to it This is exactly the case with Book Depository s Wish List Think of it as like a list that s both global individual where the users each have their own wish list but has to be called Wish List and not My Want List 3 Flag Lists is mainly for general users such as members of a community website Here is a list of the best use case scenarios A Any list that members at IMDb can create As a matter of fact Flag Lists was created specifically for this type of list B My Favorite Digital SLR Cameras The Greatest Underrated Books Ever The Best Classic Rock Albums Ever etc All those cool lists you ve seen people create online you can finally create them in Drupal with Flag Lists C The Wish List feature at Amazon Wait Shouldn t this be under Flag Allow me to explain Amazon Wish List An e commerce store typically has a default Wish List feature which would fall under Flag This is because everybody gets their own wish list but it has to be called Wish List whether we like it or not since the store created it by default for all of its members However Amazon s version actually allows members to create their own Wish List which would fall under Flag Lists This is because members get to create it they can call it whatever they want and they can add whatever product that they can find on Amazon to this list Also as far as I know they can create an infinite amount of this type of list as they want So even though Amazon calls them wish lists these are technically custom lists Therefore this is where you can actually create a list called My Want List that I mentioned above if you prefer it over Wish List Or Own List Or all three and a few dozen others You get the idea Here is a list of what makes this module different I Entityqueue is mainly for admins Flag is for both admins and general users Flag Lists is mainly for general users II Unlike Flag the general users can create whatever list they want however many lists they want and add whatever node they want to whatever list they want Think of it as like a custom list where everything is literally custom The possibilities are endless So what s the status of these modules Entityqueue and Flag have been stable for a while But as of this writing

  • How To Get A Cheap Smog Check | Jay L.ee
    DMV a few days after you pay the renewal fee saying that you won t get the renewal sticker until the smog check is done So the only thing to worry is that you might be pulled over by a cop and possibly get a fix it ticket but at least your car won t get towed I got my sticker a few days after I passed the smog test But it s always a good practice to just get it over with on time So are you ready to save 50 on your next smog test Here s how you do it 1 Pay attention to what the DMV letter days If it says you can get it smogged wherever you want you re in luck I ve always paid around 20 30 If it mentions STAR which used to be called Test Only you will almost always pay a bit more I ve always paid around 25 35 This is because STAR typically means smog check only so the mechanic can t fix your car if it doesn t pass and get a chance to recuperate some of the money and thus they can t discount the price as much 2 The real secret is in coupons and where to find them There are at least three sources of coupons in San Diego where I live A Junk mail Specifically the PennySaver I found the best coupons here easily almost all the time And I m talking about the physical junk mail that you get in your mail not the online version which might or might not be as good which I didn t do enough research yet to validate B San Diego Reader I had to use it once a few years ago when I couldn t find anything in the PennySaver for a Test Only coupon I m also talking here about the physical magazine that you find for free in local stores not the online version which again might or might not be as good which I didn t do enough research yet to validate C General online coupons including online versions of the above Google cheap smog check and you ll find tons of mostly useless links So far I never had to go this route 3 Depending on what kind of car you have call first to confirm First of all it ll always be about 10 extra for cars that are 1995 and older I don t exactly know why but it s been like that since at least five years ago And every year that number has stayed the same So back in 2009 most of the coupons said 10 extra for 1995 or older So today you would think the coupons will say 10 extra for 2000 or older but they still say 1995 or older Why that number I have no idea Second it ll always be extra for large trucks vans If you have a regular SUV like

  • Grocery Store Food Shopping Coupon Saving Tips | Jay L.ee
    the worst in San Diego Food4Less is also not as good as it sounds Walmart has a few items here and there for groceries but they sure don t have the lowest prices for most of these items I go to Ralphs for certain things such as canned fruit yogurt But the best one is hands down Vons period 2 Get a store savings card or two This is what gives you most of those savings that you see printed right under the items like buy one get one free B1G1 etc 3 Get an online store account or two So for Vons just create an account on their website link your savings card to get even more savings This is where I get coupons that let me save like 5 if I spend more than 20 And since I have two accounts I get two of these type of coupons 4 Save those junkmails or get them the next time you go to the grocery store Unless I m in a hurry I always look at the junkmails while I m shopping for groceries Once you realize how much money you re saving pretty soon you ll have a fairly good idea of what items offer those B1G1 deals bacon cereal soup and also how often once every couple months or so I once watched a story on the local TV news about this old woman that ended up paying around 10 for about 100 worth of groceries Her trick was to save as many coupons as humanly possible and stack them all together most grocery coupons are stackable meaning different coupons for the same product can be used together Now I might not be that good the woman admitted that it does take some time saving all those
