This is my first time posting on here and I am trying to get some insite as to maybe what I did wrong and what I did right. Please give me some tips if you have any.
Hi - this is the one bit of the forum where you can post links, so I'm posting it for other readers:
I think the hub is a good idea, and well-written.
Check your first sentence - an obvious spelling mistake right at the start sticks out (library's)
I'd also think about splitting your text up into separate capsules with a heading for each, such as "reading" or whatever. And maybe put the photo to the right of some of the text, rather than as a block at the bottom.
Smartmoms - hey First - the content is fine. Informative, concise and does what it says on the box.
Improving your article: break up the text. Make good use of the different capsules. Add pictures and a video or two. Add (perhaps) a news feed. I would also suggest that you remove most of the external links you have throughout the text and, instead, split them into a couple of link-capsules. Too many links within your text can cause friction twixt you and hubpages
For more insight - check out some of the more seasoned hubbers. Have a look at their layouts ... spend some time absorbing the FAQ's provided by the hubteam. Basically - invest a little time in learning some of the basics and you'll pick up your own pace in no time.
Hope that helps. And welcome to hubpages
I don't know what that code thingy is about. Also, try to keep your amazon, polls, etc. capsules above the comments. You can move these easily in *Edit* mode and click *Reorder now* which saves it and the little green arrows will help you move your capsules also. Welcome to HubPages.
I agree with DameScribe - amazon and poll capsules above comments.
I like the tone and information on your hub and I think there are fun as well as frugal tips here. Fun things for kids, frugal ways to have fun and save cash. I hope many people will heed your suggestions.

I like to add in-text links when I'm talking about certain products as I not only think they are some of the most effective, but also some of the most helpful. What I don't understand is why there is a limit of 2...

A very kind soul noticed a month ago that I need to learn how to break up my text with photos or something between the paragraphs when my text is long. She explained how to do it. I tried and couldn't grasp...

I may be the only person that feels this way but I really don't like the look of our hubs. I think they would look more professional if they were wider. They remind me of blog posts.

I recently filled in a survey on how to improve HubPages but forgot to mention a very important design issue which has been bothering me for a long time.When a text capsule is very long, I like to turn it into 2...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time...

Lately I've been experiencing issues with how capsules are displayed within the editor. When I'm moving capsules to a desired location, there seems to be odd gaps, blank spaces, and dead spots that can't be filled with...
