See, here’s the thing. Yesterday was not fun. In fact, at one point, I said to my friend Hollie, “Today is officially crap-tastic”. Nothing particularly bad happened, and I wasn’t even sad about Nashville. It was just a genuinely blah day. I woke up late, on accident, had a billion unimportants to do, and I couldn’t even get THOSE done in a speedy fashion. It was like running errands… through jello.
And did I mention the part about how I stared at my computer screen for 2 hours trying to work on this editing job? And how I wrote approximately five sentences in those 2 hours? Yeah, for you math nerds out there, that’s about a letter a minute. Impressivo.
So I employed an old trick of the trade and I stayed up LATE. As in, I was up writing until 2:30am. [Shall this method of madness continue to work, I am somewhat considering reintroducing caffeine drinks to my diet. I miss coffee, y’all.] And it was SUCCESSFUL. HallelujahpraisetheLord. I got a ton of work done. For the very first time since I started this project, I felt hopeful. At 3am. Central Standard Time, of course.
And then, oh then, [and here is where we actually get to the point of this particular post], this morning I bought $70 shoes for a mere $31 including shipping.
I think I just heard the squeak of your brain tires slamming on the brakes. Oh yes. You read that right. Over 50% off.
How, one might ask, do you save THAT MUCH MONEY?
The internet, people. It’s a giver. Click these links and save you some doll-hairs.
slickdeals.net – Here would be the place where I found the shoes. It’s a weird variety of coupons, but it’s coupons. None the less.
woot.com – Now this one just cracks me up. One deal a day, and a limited amount. It’s kinda like a surprise party every day.
filmmetro.com – Sign up here for free. And then go to the movies. FOR FREE.
hulu.com – Watch NBC and FOX TV shows for free. A time waster, for sure.
pandora.com – AWESOME. Free music. Of all sorts. You make up your “station” and pandora finds music similar to what you like. Currently, I’m listening to a “Solo Piano Station”, “Lori McKenna Station”, and, brace yourselves for the shock, a “Dave Barnes Station”. But not all at the same time. I couldn’t listen to all those at the same time. You know what I mean. Okay… proceed….
noisetrade.com – This website lets you download CDs for free if you email the suggestion to a few of your friends or you can pay what you want. I got Micah Dalton‘s CD on here and I don’t regret it for even a minute.
AND…. my friend Hollie (of “crap-tastic” fame) taught me this yesterday- if you go to Kroger.com and have a Kroger Plus Card, you can DOWNLOAD COUPONS to your card! That is crazy talk. I haven’t done it yet, but I seriously keep meaning to. I’m gonna. Real soon. After I fold the laundry.
**UPDATE! Steve from DeaLoco emailed me and told me about his site. It is, in a word, fantastic. My word there is a purse I can not take my eyes, or mouse, off of. Gorgeous. So check it out.**
Hope this helps you save a few bucks today. [And if it does, and you want to give those away, check out Sarah’s post today- she may have an idea for you.]
Got anymore ways we can save some money? Leave the website address in the comments!! Like I said, I don’t believe in stealing, but I sure don’t mind saving every possibly penny.
Except at Target. I have a weakness. Don’t judge.
