Bargain Hunting is my JOB

Everybody who knows me knows that I love a good bargain. That's one of the reasons that I love Target so much. What I LOVE more than good bargain is FREE stuff. I have decided to share all the good crap stuff that I come across. I will try to post at least once a week as I usually find a bunch of stuff each week. I love saving Danny some money!!!

So, here is what I have for his week:

This one should be over any day now. 200 Free 4x6 + 200 Free 5x7 prints from ArtsCow*8x8 Photo Book.
Offer will be over when target of 20,000,000 free prints credits has been reached. When I signed up, it said that they had already reahed 6,000,000 credits. So hurry if you are interested.

If you like Woman's Day magazine, go here for a FREE one year subscription.

PF Changs FREE Grill Entree. This is only good for S. California restaurants. I signed up, since we visit occassionally.

Free Jockey Panties from Macy's (valid 5/31-6/6) Just print the coupon out. I wouldn' make a rip out just for the undies but if you're there anyways, it's FREE!

Living The Country Life Magazine. FREE. Although I did not orer this one, someone here may be interested.

Harper Collins First Look. Read & review tomorrows books today. I signed up for this a few months ago and have already received 2 books to review.

Here is a coupon for $5 off the Scotch Brite Tub & Tile Scrubber or the Bathroom Floor Cleaner Starter Kit. I don't know how much this normally costs so I'm not sure if it's worth it yet. I'll find out tomorrow ;)

Finally, Share Senseo is back. I am not a coffee drinker, but Danny is. So instead of making a pot of coffee just for him, he just brews himself a cup on the Senseo. I ot this about a year or so ago. Back hen it was 100% frre. Now they charge $15 to ship. It's still a great deal. If you put that you are part of a club, you are more than likely guaranteed to qualify for the offer.

Also, if you don't already know, my beloved Targt has their own printable coupons which you can combine with manufacturer coupons. You can sometimes get stuff for free or almost free.

I haven't updated this thing in ages! So, what have I been so busy with for the past15 days? Abso-lute-ly NOTHING! Just plain ole nothing to say. Except for our trip of course. We left last Wednesday to Boston and we got back on Sunday. Strike that. We actually got home on Monday morning. After a long delay at the airport in Boston. We had a great time, ate some great food, and walked a heck of a lot! Weather was great the 1st couple of days, then it got downright cold. At least for me. I think the temps were around 48 but it was windy, so it felt waaay colder. I was bout ready to break out the hat & gloves but I didn't want to look like a total Floridian freak. Some local girls were wearing flip flops for chrissake. Their toes were purple, but they were stylin'. Aside from our trip, everything else is same, same, same.

At Home

Happy Sunday! Not so happy actually. D is working and the girls are out. I'm home alone which totally depresses me. I would get in my car and go for a drive and maybe stop at my beloved Target and wander the aisle, but it would probably cost me almost 4 bucks just to get there and back!

Yes, I am totally ranting about gas.Again. We are getting to the point where we think twice before going anywhere. It's bad enough that just grocery shopping gives me the heevy jeevies. I paid almost $2 for a freakin' green bell pepper the other day. And don't get me started on the price of milk. I go in for a few things and it's always at least 50 bucks for one or two bags of groceries. I don't know how much longer we can go on like this.

We were watching our wedding video since D loves to remember the best day of his life and all :) Since we were poor we had his mom's husband videotape for us. The guy decided to video tape our limo as we were going to the reception. The interesting part is when we pass gas stations along the way. Gas was at .89 cents per gallon. Yes, it was 20 years ago. I must sound like my grandfather with the whole walking 20 mile and over hills stuff. But, my point is that last year around this time I paid $1.89 per gallon. That's a $1 increase over 19 years. Ok, acceptable and expected. Right now I am paying about $3.50 which equals over $1.60 increase in just.one.year! So wrong!

A Love Story For Your Life

If you have not heard about Randy Pausch or his Last Lecture, I suggest you tune in to Primetime tonight. Truly inspirational.

As always, there are critics. Those who can't keep their evil thoughts to themselves and try to bring down people when they are most vulnerable. Not only have I seen it with this lecture, but have also witnessed it on personal blogs. People share their lives with the "internets" on their space. Their personal blog. Which to me, it's an extension of my home, since I am inviting you in to visit with me and share in what's going on around here. I have witnessed countless times where people wil post comments bashing the blog owner for their beliefs, pareting skills, even housekeeping. I have visited a blog where the woman has a very strong faith in God although she is battling cancer, yet people have posted comments to her calling her a hypocrite for seeking medical attention. They claim that she should not do that if her God can cure her. These are the folks who feel that they are above anyone else.

But I digress, back to the "Last Lecture". You have those that state that he is exploiting his life and family for money. Well, you know what, he is sending a very inspirational message to millions. If he makes money along the way Fan-freaking-tastic! At least his wife and kids will have something to live on when he is gone. After paying all the medical bills of course. Because I'm sure that all the holier than thou folks won't be helping with that

Anyhoo, here is a reprised version of the lecture as seen on Oprah. You can get the entire actual lecture on YouTube.

I don't want to freeze

Boston Current Conditions
40°F at Logan Airport as of 11:25 PM
27° F RealFeel temp

This thin blooded Miami girl is not very happy! Why did I let Danny choose our destination? There is a reason why I always plan our trips. Actually, I still am the one that is doing all the planning and research. He just shows up and carries our bags. On the way to the airport he will be asking "Did you pack ...?"Same with parties. I do all the planning, inviting & preparing. On the day of the party, he will be asking "Did you invite so & so?" Anyhoo, I am not too into this trip. Yet. Hopefully, that will change. I am not looking foward to the cold. I do not own winter clothes. I hope that it will get into at least the 60's in the next 2 weeks. Don't get me wrong. I do want to visit New England. All six states. During Fall Foliage. Not during cold April showers! So for the next two weeks I will be writing to Mr. Heatmiser to please help me out here!
