Episode #1 - Wecome to the show!

It's out!  I just wanted to let you all know you can go to and download the first show.    I should be on iTunes very soon as well.  

First, I have to apologize for the sound of the first show.  I'm completely new to podcasting and have a lot to learn so bear with me.  Thanks!  In this first episode I introduce Bargain Hunting in SL and share the goals for the show.  The focus will be to help SL residents, both new and old, find quality items for free or at a discount.  Lucky chairs, groups and other podcasts and blogs relating to shopping in SL will also be covered.

Every episode I plan on showing you one complete look that you can put together for under 100$L.  For this first show I managed to do it for FREE!  Listed below are the items in order of item type- name of item - shop - where in the shop or how I got it
The outfit of the episode is pictured above.  Here's what I came up with:

Dress - color of the month brown - Audacious - found in a bag in the free section of the shop. 
Shoes - Elise Mary Jane Heels - Tesla - Free next to the  lucky chairs (also worth checking out).
Hair - Sleek (chestnut) - ETD - Free in shop.  This is a men's style but is good for everyone!
Skin - (Le) brow1, freckles, greed - Another Shop - Free fully copy/mod/transfer skins.

Finally, the show ends with a fantastic song by Jonathan Coulton called "Mr Fancy Pants".  JoCo, as he's affectionately called by his fans, can be found on the podsafe music network as well as his website 

Thanks to everyone for your help and support!

Thanks for listening,
Hedgie :-)

Welcome to BHISL!

The very first episode of "Bargain Hunting in SL" is in production!  I hope to release it soon.  The focus of BHISL will be to help new residents of SL as well as seasoned members find quality items at prices everyone can afford.  Great looks don't have to come with a high price tag if you know where to find them.  I'll also give tips on what's worth the extra splurge from time to time.  If you have any comments, suggestions or just want to say hi please feel free to leave a comment, plurk (HedgieTill) me or send an IM in SL.  

Thanks to those who've helped and encouraged me to start my very first podcast!
