By now everyone has heard of Amazon Prime, such as 2 day free delivery for all prime approved products and also their prime prime TV which offers a variety of shows, some called Amazon Originals that you cannot see anywhere else.

New Year! New time for goals, dreams or whatever your little heart might desire. Or so that is what we seem to think.

For myself, I have had a few good years, but that has more to do with how I take life now than how lucky I am.

What I mean is, I still have trying days. Such as this week when the strains of a cold does not seem to want to let me be, however, I can take time off without stress, because I have set myself up that way. I can rest and take half days to take care of myself, easing the stress of needing to live paycheck to paycheck, because I simply don’t live paycheck to paycheck anymore.


Thing is, accomplished goals of years past has led me to a much more laid back person. And laid back has offered me a peace of mind that I can now afford myself, because even if I missed work and then got fired for it, I am much better financially now then I have ever been and am fairly certain I could recuperate.

Which leads me to the title and question of this blog. Are Vision Boards Effective? YouTube Goals Video? New Years Resolutions?

Teeth Aligners For Less? Smile Direct Club – A Journey


I recently started a journey to straighten my teeth at the age of 49.

Yes, yes I know, I am a bit old for braces, but when this offer came across my android phone, I simply could not resist it.

Last time I had checked for how much braces/invisalign would be; I realized that I still could not afford it. Invisalign through my dentist was about 6k while braces…well let’s just forget about them altogether. The price tag of over 10k was way too rich for my blood.

Of course, since I had done some research about it, the “Smile Direct Club” ads started popping up on my screens.

After doing some sleuthing and reviews searches, including videos such as these ones below, I decided that this might be the right fit (pardon the pun) for me!


Although I have seen other videos mentioning that customer service is a very different experience when you contact them directly as opposed to contacting them by email, and you generally get better results if you go to a smile care office rather than do your own impressions which makes sense (one is done by putty and the other by digital image). I found my nearest smile direct office and booked my first appointment.

The appointment as opposed to the impressions cost nothing and you get lots of free goodies, as seen in this video. The 3D images of what my smile would look like when finished pretty much clinched it for me and I was off to the races. After 3 1/2 weeks, I received my aligners and started the process that night (it’s been said that to deal with pain, it’s better to wear them at night when starting or changing out your aligners) since it’s give a good 7 to 8 hours of unconsciousness as to not feel the discomfort.

Here is my first video on the subject.

Putting on my second set of aligners was quite a shock and very different than the first set which was just slip on and go as you can see from the next video….
