Making a slow comeback!

Hello Blogger Friends

** My computer suffered a little mishap (well- actually a really big mishap as in we killed it) and I’m currently using a tablet, so the blog revamp will have to wait until I can get a new laptop.  I love tablets, but am too old school to use it for anything other than web browsing ** soooo stay tuned and I’ll get my sweepstakes and a few grocery deals going for ya again **

I’m working on a new blog comeback, but be patient as it will take a bit to fix things up.  Thanks for all the Facebook follows – I’ll be posting the contests again soon.  Right now my effort is in fixing the web site so things can get flowing normally again.

Now I am ignoring you – sorry

I think it is time to put this Blog on hold for a while.  In addition to a few small health issues, it has become an issue of ethics for me. I love couponing, deals and dashing for free things, but things at the stores are just not what they used to be.  I’ve never liked blogging a coupon deal that I didn’t understand or had the chance to test out myself.  Lately that testing phase has become problematic due to both time and my lack of patience with misinformed cashiers..  There is so much abuse out there and sometimes I feel I’m contributing to it.  Most deals aren’t worth the argument anymore and I find myself at Walmart more and more just to avoid it.   I need to re-think my blogging method and the items I post.  Now isn’t a good time for that, so a longer break is in order.

I started this blog to show a few friends how to stack store coupons with a manufacturer coupon in order to maximize savings at the stores and most of you have taken off on that and moved on to blogs with higher readership, but I’d appreciate it a great deal if you could stop by from time to time and click my coupon and affiliate links since the revenue from that helps me keep the hosting fees paid.  With a little luck my routine can resume to a point where I can start doing reviews and giveaways again.  I’m also back into product and beta testing and recently resumed my old sweepstakes hobby.  I’ve found it an enjoyable break and most likely will be back here in the near future to blog about some of those things.

Internet troubles make for unhappy bloggers


*Yipeee!!  The cable guys finally fixed it 🙂  I actually skipped the stores this week since I couldn’t get on to print my coupons.  For that reason I’m a bit out of the loop.  Give me a day to jump back in 😉

In case you’ve been wondering WHY things are so quiet here – my internet has been giving me trouble for three days.  They are apparently experiencing some issues near my area and it is causing many outages.  I’m lucky to get one post out before it bleeps off again 🙁

Long Day

Hey everyone.. I didn’t get time for a lunch break today and so don’t know much more about Safeway and Bashas yet.   My day was so bad that I really don’t care right now.   I did go to Fry’s this morning and there are a number of markdowns in the Laundry Aisle in addition the the freebies I’ve mentioned earlier.

I’ll check back tomorrow and if things are better then will catch it all up here.  I have a few rebates to tell you about as well.

Things are on hold a bit

You guys…  I have to put a little hold on blog time.  My arm is just too painful to do computer work at night right now.  If it doesn’t go away then I’ll make a drs appt. and either way be back – hopefully before next week.

Good Morning and an Update

Good Morning everyone!  I am so sorry to abandon you again, but it was soooo busy that I have not been shopping, internet surfing or coupon clipping to blog about!   My early morning job has now ended and I am hoping to keep this slot open for the blog.  I want to apologize to all my PR friends out there who I owe product reviews to and promise to catch those up in the next couple of weeks.  I’m still pretty overloaded with my VA tasks, but will try and get things up and moving on a part time basis again 🙂
