Last week while I was reading some other Quick Takes I came across this one all about pinterest. The blogger asked if she was a pinterest addict because she has 15 boards and 500 pins. After reading I was curious as to how many pins and boards I had (thinking it couldn’t be that many). Boy was I WRONG!! I have over 50 boards and close to 1500 pins. Maybe I’m the one with the problem…
Some DEALS are too good to be true. Over the weekend I found an AWESOME deal on officemax.com. 20 triple rolls of angel soft toilet paper for $5 (normal price is $35). The order went through fine but I never got any information about shipping and it kept “pending” in my bank account. I asked my friend that also ordered the deal and she finally just called officemax.com and they gave her a run around and basically told her they were out of stock and all the orders would be cancelled. I hadn’t heard anything about it and was hoping she was wrong but alas last night I received an email saying the deal was a “typographical” error and they weren’t responsible for placing orders based on “typographical errors” blah blah blah and my order was cancelled and money refunded. I was kind of bummed because I was super exciting at scoring such a GREAT deal. The search continues! I really hope amazon puts Charmin on sale again at a great price.
I just ordered these awesome Enjoy the City books! Right now if you use the code FOUR you get 5 books for $20 (or $4 each) and if you buy 12 or more they automatically double your order so you get each book for $2!! If you want to get extra crazy or team up with some friends and order 50 books they double your order and send you a $50 target giftcard! I only ordered 12 as I couldn’t justify spending $200 or needing 100 books. Every city has different coupons but specifically for Florida the book has several $5 off a $30 purchase at Winn Dixie and you can use the coupon at Publix (if your Publix takes Winn Dixie Coupons). I have been known to split my order up to be able to use two of these coupons and always give this coupon before coupons. The books also have a ton of other great coupons for restaurants and entertainment. You can view the book before ordering on the website.
I’ve said it a million times I am SOOO BEHIND on reviews. However I am 10x closer to getting one of my Newman’s Own Organics reviews posted. This past week I created a video of Milo and Pierre reviewing the food. Here is a sneak peak:
After our vacation next week I am determined to buckle down and get my finances in order and not spend anymore extra money until Labor Day (small goals). I have currently gotten back into the habit of using Mint.com to track my spending. I have tried a million different things including iBank, and an old fashioned spreadsheet and mint.com has been the only thing that has really helped me keep track of things. The only thing I wish I could figure out is how to keep track of who you owe money to when you don’t have a specific account to pay that person back. Like if I owe Billy Bob $10. Yes that whole sentence is probably the most confusing thing I have ever written 🙁
I’ve been getting really crafty/foody? and productive with my pinterest boards. Last weekend I made another pinterest meal. I made these awesome Cheesy Potato Fries!! OMG they were soooo good I want some more NOW! The best part about the recipe is I bought everything for the recipe ON SALE!! I got so lucky that the two weeks I shopped for the fries the items I needed were on sale 🙂 a win-win in my book!
I will be out of town next weekend so please excuse any crazy family/disney related tweets and instagram photos and look for many coupons (since it will be the first of the month), a themed 7 Quick Takes about drugstores and a guest post from Jen ::Meditatio::!!
