take your bargains where you find them

June 30th, 2008 at 04:18 pm

i was going thru the ads in the Sunday paper yesterday and I happened to notice Checker Auto Parts store had a coupon for paper towels at .39 cents (limit 4). That's a very good price for paper towels. It never occurred to me to look at auto parts stores for household bargains before Smile but you take a good deal wherever you find it.

Went to WalMart and got more of the Muir Glen organic tomatoes. Price went up from 1.24 to 1.34 but with the $1 off coupon they are still a great deal at .34 each. Got 4 cans.

I buy lemon juice to put in my water and it went from 1.68 to 1.84 another increase.

Found a penny at WalMart and picked it up Smile

Finished reading my book Elijah by Jacquelyn Frank. Supernatural/Romance. Very good.

Garage Sailing Saturday

June 29th, 2008 at 04:11 am

Only 5 weeks now till I retire Smile

My town had a community garage sail day today so spent the morning going to garage sales. Found some very good deals.

Brand new electric throw $7 ($35 new)
2 brand new pillows $3 ($20 new)
Phone Albumn for mom $2
4 jigsaw puzzles $7
2 hardback books $1.5
A box of Petite Princess dollhouse furniture $8

We also had a produce stand open in town so I went over there and got 2 organic tomatoes for $2

I've gotten several carrots from my container garden now and my tomato plant has 3 little tomatoes starting. I'm continuing to get radishes and I've started some more green onions. Next year I plan to expand my container garden. It's been a lot of fun watcing things grow.

My oldest niece got a summer job working at King Soopers $7.5/hr plus 15% off anything she buys there. That's a pretty good bonus considering how much some groceries are inflating.

I have two more weeks of very busy days at work after which it should slow down a bit. I expect to spend most of my time training others my last 3 weeks.

Finished reading the library book Living rich by spending smart : how to get more of what you really want by Gregory Karp. Finance. Very good, some very good advice in this book.

I also finished reading the library book From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris. Supernatural. Very good.

I probably won't be blogging much until i retire. Work life is nuts right now and after spending so much time on a computer I don't care to spend more blogging. Smile Look for me again in August Smile
