Hey all! I had a productive day yesterday :) I returned all the household stuff we "borrowed" from the Army (did you girls know that they do that - how cool is that?? A lending closet for household stuff when you move - card table w/ chairs, cots, plates, silverware, cooking stuff). I also took back the Coffee table and end table to Big Lots. We found different end tables and a coffee table at WalMart. Only $25 and $19. Not too bad, eh?
Big Lots gave me cash back, since I used my Debit card to pay for the items the first time, so I was walking around with a wallet full of cash. Sigh. I hate using cash. It goes WAY too fast. I also went to the Commissary (army grocery store) to pick up a few things. The prices there are lower than even WalMart on food, I've decided. I usually pay $6.50 to $7.00 for a bag of Splenda, but the Commissary had it for $5.00. Apples at WalMart were $1.39 a pound (and they looked real nasty), but the Commissary had them ALL flavors for $0.89 - $0.99 a lb. And they looked really good.
I picked up a few things, and went to the "self checkout". I didn't know this when I first went there, but you're supposed to tip the baggers. I'm not crazy about that. There's even signs on the wall (I noticed them this time) that says that the baggers work for tips only. So, I figured that if I did the self checkout, I'd by-pass the tipping. I know, I'm cheap. But, I figured that if I'm driving across town to save a few bucks on groceries, I shoudln't waste the savings on paying someone to do what I can certainly do for myself. But that's just my take on it. No offense to those who work as baggers at the Commissary. I'm sure lots of other patrons will let you bag their groceries.
I think I finally have all of my tax info. I'm SO not looking forward to doing them this year. I usually do them myself, and enjoy every minute of it. I know, I'm a freak. LOL! But, I think tonight is tax night. I'm gonna look at mine, and work on my mom's for a while. So MOM, call me tonight, and we'll play!!!
I missed Lost last night, so I'm gonna watch it today. I SO love that the big networks post their programing on the internet. It's so handy with my crazy schedule. I also need to go back and watch Medium, Chuck, Fringe, Life, and Lie to Me. Hmmm, maybe I watch a little bit too much TV...... nah!!!!
Woohoo!!! I have 6 new WordArt packs in the store this Friday. BUT, I'm giving you all the links to the store a day early. Aren't you lucky??? You betcha! Ha! Kami from Scraporchard and a few of my CT recommend and that I try a new style of WordArt. More grungy and typewriter-ish. Not quite sure if I captured the look they were gunning for, but I liked how they turned out :) I'm liking the grungy style :) Hope you guys do too!
Remember, the first week, all my new products are 20% off. So, each of these WordArt packs are $2.00. Click on the image below to go to my "secret" store - LOL!
