Discount Shopping for Inspiration

Okay, I am still finding pennies. I went to this Google search that had brought someone to my blog: "finding pennies after a death." It is just amazing to me how common this phenomenon is! Pennies seem to be a sign of comfort. Some think the "spirits" find copper easier to manipulate than some other metals...that did spook me a little. I think if Dad wanted to move a mountain full of silver, he'd do it but then what do I know?

In the meantime, I am applying the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair in hopes that inspiration will strike. Do I seem inspired to you? Me either!

My new hobby is reading the message boards on www.thegrocerygame.com for undiscovered deals that I simply just "can't" live without. This leads to a lot of eye-rolling from the Unnamed Ones. They actually have the nerve to say things like "Yeah, but did we need another fondue pot?" or "So? Who cares if Staples has Sharpies for free after the rebate- who needs Sharpies?"

Hello? Sharpies? Who needs them?!

I also have a free year's subscription to Shape and Money magazine. Okay, so I don't normally read Shape- but Money? And for a year!

And the week's worth of dinners from Omaha Steaks for $99! Okay, so some Unnamed Ones won't enjoy the stuffed sole but hey...I do have friends!

The book, you say? Well, I've got two pages...again.

I've never heard of the penny phenomenon. I'll have to do some digging on this.
