In my living room sits my comfy dark brown leather recliner. Beside it is a reading lamp and a 3 drawer nightstand. On top of the nightstand is my large water bottle on a coaster, a tube of chapstick, a container for nail tools, pens, pencils and scissors, a small tube of lotion, a bottle of lens cleaner and a lens cloth. There are anywhere from 3 - 5 books waiting to be read or in the process of being read. And there are 2 notebooks.
One notebook is to keep track of recipes, menu ideas and health related ideas I read or see on TV. The other notebook is interesting websites I read/hear about, things to look up, tips and hints on doing things and interesting quotes.
I finished the notebook with the interesting tidbits in it and before throwing it away I'm going back thru to see if there is any information I want to look at again. Some things I just write down and never get back to. Some I check out right away.
Here's some of the interesting websites I had written down in the notebook.

Most of the other sites are well known or were duds, these were the most interesting to me.
I got a $10 rebate check for Brita water pitcher I got last month. It was a moneymaker. I also got a sample of Burt's Bees daily moisturizer cream.
I went to Walgreens and got 4 tubes of Colgate toothpaste that I made money on and will donate to the food pantry.
$3.00 - sale
.21 - tax
- .75 - q
2.46 but get back a $3 RR so it's a .54c moneymaker x's 4 = $2.16
I got 4 cans of mushrooms with the overage from the toothpaste.
I ordered a $10 Walgreens gift card from MyPoints - cashing in. I made enough swagbucks to order 2 more $5 Amazon gift cards.
I finished reading my book The Blessing by Jude Devereaux. Romance - ok.
