Batteries! It seems like Christmas always brings out our need for batteries. A couple of years ago, I decided that I was really tired of always having to buy batteries.. especially when I had to go back to the store to buy more a week after Christmas.
I started researching different rechargeable batteries, and every time I ran into the same problem.. they are just expensive. When you are trying to replace batteries for all the toys that kids have.. whoa! So I started buying a few rechargeable batteries at a time.. first for the digital camera some AAs, then for the mp3 player some AAAs. Somewhere along the line I came across this fabulous website for rechargeable batteries.. the batteries are a decent price, and not only do they hold a good charge, but we have had ours for over a year of repetitive abuse, and they are still strong!
