Happy Weekend

I won't be posting anything this weekend because we are once again going out of town. (Just when my monthly spending was looking pretty good)
I got some pretty good news this week that is sure to help out.

1) I got a raise. Yep, you read that right. When other people's income is dwindling...I got a raise!

2) I got a (hefty) bonus!!! Wooohoooo!!!!

3) DH got the same raise I did AND the same bonus!! That makes it doubly good.

4) I am buying me a Red Mustang GT Convertible this weekend. (Bet you were wondering what that picture of a car had to do with anything)

5) Best of all, I am going to visit my daddy for the weekend. They finally got my mother's headstone in this week and it is worth driving the 500 miles to get there to see it :)

My favorite cashiers

I have my 2 favorite cashiers in the world!

Anybody who uses coupons knows exactly what I mean. These two know how to scan coupons, know how to price adjust coupons, never roll thier eyes when you hand them 100 coupons, and are just as excited as I am at how much I saved at the end of the transaction.

All tht said, I understand one of my favorite cashiers (you now know who he is) sent some people to visit my blog. If that is you, I will do the best I can to match up the sales with coupons from his store for you this week.

Valentine Clearance

I decided to see what WalMart had on clearance from Valentine's Day and here is what I found:
My daughter is a teacher so, I am always on the lookout for craft projects she can use. These foam hearts are just the thing for a classroom full of 5yr olds to make something really special for Mother's Day. ($1.24)

These do not look 'Valentine's' to me and are going to be used on Easter Baskets. ($.24 each)These are the cutest stuffed animals and with a few snips of some longer "Valentine's". They were intended for my granddaughter to play with when she is here....
As you can see, one disappeared. My (youngest) daughter must have thought the monkey was too cute because she took it for herself. ($1.75 each)

BecomeBeauty Free Weekender Sample Kit

If you read nothing else...

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the rich out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend is about the end of any nation."

"You cannot multiply the wealth by dividing it."

Dr. Adrian Rogers (1931 to 2005)

Just being me...

Exactly how many corners do I have to bite before I find the kind I like?

It is Friday and I should be in a good mood since my work week is over. Oh no! Instead, I decide to do our taxes today.

Why exactly are some people able to get a Child Tax Credit but, NOT ME?! Is it really fair to base it on income? I think not. A child is a child, give the credit to all, or give it to none.

Why can we not have a flat tax rate? Is it fair for somebody to work hard, and make more money just to have to pay higher taxes than somebody who makes less? Wouldn't paying an equal portion of our income for taxes be fairer?!

My list goes on and on ....

Kashi Recall

Here at Kashi, we consider our consumers family. That’s why we’re taking a proactive position on the peanut product recall and recommending the following steps to protect your health and that of your families.

Since you received a Kashi™ TLC® Oatmeal Dark Chocolate cookie sample in the mail last year, we want to be sure you have the most updated information.

No doubt you have heard of all of the recalls involving peanut products from Peanut Corporation of America. Initially, our products were not involved, as only peanut butter and peanut paste were recalled—ingredients that we do not use in our products.

As Peanut Corporation expanded their recall to include additional peanut ingredients, we learned that the facility that bakes our TLC cookies used the recalled peanuts in products produced on the same line as our Oatmeal Dark Chocolate cookie. Therefore, we have voluntarily recalled all of our Kashi TLC cookies, including the cookie sent to you. If you still have the cookie, please throw it out just to be safe; we would never want to put our consumers’ health at risk.

Also included in this recall are:

• Kashi® TLC® Chewy Granola Bars in Trail Mix and Honey Almond Flax varieties, 7.4-ounce box with a "Best If Used Before" date prior to September 19, 2009 and followed by the letters CD (SEP 19 2009 CD)

• Kashi® TLC® Chewy Granola Bars Peanut Peanut Butter, 7.4-ounce box with a "Best If Used Before" date prior to August 8, 2009 and followed by the letters CD (AUG 08 2009 CD)

• Kashi™ TLC® Chewy Cookies in Oatmeal Dark Chocolate, Happy Trail Mix and Oatmeal Raisin Flax varieties only, 8.5-ounce box with a "Best If Used Before" date prior to July 30, 2009

If you have purchased boxes of any of these products, you should throw them out and call us at 877-701-5868 for a refund. For more information, visit us at

Medical Trial Update

I posted about a medical trial that I am involved in HERE. So far it has been a good experience for me. The reason I decided to participate was because I felt like the medication could help me. The money I get at each visit is just icing on the cake.

I am not sure how I would feel about participating if the testing were in the earlier stage but, being that it is in the final stages of testing, I feel confident of its safety. It is just a matter of time (as soon as my trial is over) before it is approved by the FDA.

If you have thought about doing a medical trial make sure it is through a very reputable doctor that you trust, your health is what is most important. You can find a listing of some trials HERE listed by area.
