I don’t believe in stealing.

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.
