      Some great ideas for Christmas. Now is the time to start thinking about it and buying so you do not have all that expense at once.

      If you are signed up with Amazon you should definitely add a capsule and you will make money with it. Good luck

      Bayoulady do you mean adding a capsule with the links to Amazon? Would I make money if I did? It's easy enough to add it...
