OK..I can start Friday right??

June 20th, 2006 at 04:03 pm

I broke down today..bought my $4 cup of coffee. OUCH! My office is kept FREEZING cold (note to self: bring a jacket!!!), and the free coffee seriously tastes like it has a substance in it that should never pass human lips. I told myself I would stop spending $4 a day on coffee, but today I broke down. I can start that whole no $4 coffee thing Friday right???

Had a great mail day yesterday..got my Bzzzkit for Aquapods which included 2 bottles of the water ( so cool for kids, 11 oz of Ice Mountain water in a bubble shaped bottle), a coupon for a free 8 pack and .50 coupons for me to pass out to others..also got a free full sized tube of Jergens Daily Glow facial moisturizer from a contest and a few other things. Today I got my Netflix movie and the free 5x7 picture I won in a Kodak contest. It's the little things right?

Taking inspiration from a few other blogs I've read, I wrote to Reynolds today about their Slow Cooker liners, I had gotten some ridiculously cheap with coupons, and since I use my slow cooker so much I finally used one last night. Well, the thing leaked!!! Kinda defeats the purpose doesnt it? So we'll see what happens with that one.

Talked to B last night about the $20 challenge, and he said it was a great idea so we're going to start on Friday when we get paid since we dont have $20 to our name at the moment.

Also today I finally remembered to print out the rebate forms for my new computer, so I'll get those sent in tomorrow. That will be $100 for our challenge account when those come in. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and its pretty!!!! LOL!

Thanks for the inspiration everyone..I'm off to read The Tightwad Gazette!

    Bummer about the crockpot liners. I've used mine a few times without problems. I hope you try again with better results. Good for you for contacting Reynolds about it...I'm curious to see their response.

    Thanks for the replies all. I do plan on keeping using the liners, no sense letting them go to waste, and the cleanup wasnt As bad as normal lol. This is probably the 5th time Ive read The Tightwad Gazette and find something new every time!
