I am Thankful for...

I have not been keeping up with this. Today I am thankful for my family. They are amazing and I miss them each and every day. I can't wait for Christmas to see them.

I am Thankful for...

I am borrowing this idea from my friend Tiina at One Crazy Penguin. Each day from now until Thanksgiving I will write about 1 thing that I am thankful for.
Today I am thankful for my fiancé Jacob. I love him so much and he brings joy and laughter to my life.

$10 Target Gift Card Giveaway

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

My Publix is implementing new coupon policies that is making it more difficult to use coupons. =( They are now accepting only 1 $/$$ coupon (ex. $5/$25 Rite Aid) no matter how much your total is. I guess this means I will have to take two smaller grocery trips each week, rather than one large one (it's a good thing I can walk there). The manager who was bagging for my cashier the other day was very strict on the coupons. I was kinda annoyed because we should have gotten another $5 off but the manager wouldn't let us use both of our Family Dollar coupons even though we spent over $50.

$10 Amazon gift card giveaway

A Few Short Cuts is having yet ANOTHER Giveaway. This time it is for $10 Amazon gift card. I have yet to win one on this site, but I am crossing my fingers. Good luck to all of you.
