Check Out This Automobile Website

The gas prices definitely have me looking for more fuel efficient used cars. We are thinking of buying a nice secondhand Toyota Yaris. This could save us a lot of money in gas with his commute to work. I have been doing some research on where I can search for new and used cars, plus read reviews from owners. The site is very informative, and very easy to navigate.

Don’t forget to enter the Drive, Rate, and Fly contest. All you have to do is evaluate a car for a chance to win a great vacation. You can choose either a trip to Mexico or see the Daytona 500 race in Florida. Note: Only residents of Canada are eligible to win. This is a great site so check it out today!

I’ve Been Tagged!

I was tagged yesterday by Carole’s Thoughtful Spot the 6 Unspectacular Quirks Meme. This is my first one.

The rules are:

1. Link back to the person who tagged you
2. Mention the rules on your blog
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

Here are my six quirks (don’t say I didn’t warn you):

1. I can’t wear socks at all during the summer. I have to be barefoot or wear sandals at all times. It’s opposite during the winter. I have to wear socks all winter.

2. I have to have the TV on even if I’m not watching it. I like the background noise or it has to be a radio. I hate complete silence.

3. I’m a night person so waking up early in the morning is killing me. I prefer to up most of the night and sleep during the morning hours.

4. This is a really good one. I am right handed but I write as if I’m left handed. Don’t ask me why, but I’ve done this my whole life. I just can’t hold a pen or pencil the “normal” way.

5. I have a love hate relationship with organization. I prefer to be organized, but I can find things better when it’s messy. My desk is a great example.

6. I love heavy metal and alternative. You would find this strange if you knew me. It shocks a lot of people.

Here are my tags below (sorry if I tag you and someone else already did):

Electic WAHM
Rachel’s Place
A Problogger Mom
Work at Home Mom Revolution
Life of a Nguyener
Coupon Mom Mom

Thanks again Carole for the great tagged meme. I had a lot of fun, and I hope the ones I tagged also have fun with it. It was hard for the first two or three, then it was much easier.

Create a Masterpiece with Glass Tiles

Are you planning to use glass mosaics, stone mosaics or glass and marble tile on your next remodel? Many people are using them for bathrooms, floors, kitchen backsplashes, and even swimming pools. You need to check out the Glass Tile Store for the best selection and prices available. They offer these tiles below wholesale, and they can ship to all states. You can also buy a sample to see how it will look in your home. They ship the sample for free. If you are looking for a bigger discount, then check out their closeout area. You can’t go wrong when shopping here.

Rite-Aid Rebates

I must say that I love doing the Rite-Aid rebates. My only real disappointment is that my store rarely has the advertised items in stock so I can’t always get the free items. I did get my check for July today and I requested it the last week of July. It was shipped on the 4th of this month so that is very fast processing. I wished Walgreens would implement an online rebate redemption system like RA. My check was for $29.32! I spent $32.xx this past week on the great FAR items. I have $27.95 pending already for the month. I saved an extra $12 in coupons. I got a free can of Old Spice shaving cream since the razors had a peelie. That was a nice freebie I wasn’t expecting.

Thanks to 1stopmom for letting me know that I can now enter my receipts online to Walgreens. I knew there were testing this, in select areas, but no clue it was open for everyone. I was able to put in one yesterday and saved it. I will report back when I’m ready to fully submit it. Thanks again my readers. You guys rock!

Back to School Means Supplies

My son went back to school last week. I had to buy the usual school supplies and school uniforms. That also meant I had to had to label them. I really wished I had a DYMO Labelmaker. I had so much trouble writing his name in small letters using a marker. The scissors were the hardest one to label. The writing could smear if not careful. Having a label maker could have saved me so much time and frustration. These labels look so much nicer plus no smearing.

I could even use this handy little label maker around my house. I hate having items in plastic containers, and I don’t always remember what I have stored inside. I don’t want to write on them so this label maker would be the perfect solution. I would also love to use this for organizing my pictures. The boxes are fabric so I can’t write on the outside. I can also use this to keep my files more organized. I would really love to color code it all with medical documents, tax information, and old bills. I can really see this great machine being used for all sorts of organization around the house. This will allow me to have more time to spend with my family.

Join the I Follow Revolution!

I know you are wondering what I’m talking about. Ok so some of you probably already know, but I didn’t until today. I saw a lot of those on people’s blogs so I was always very curious. Basically it’s a way to get spiders (not the eight legged kind) to pick up the links. This is good for me as well as my readers leaving comments on my blog. I wanted to post that I am now a U Comment I Follow blog, and I also changed my 3 other blogs so comment away readers!

If you are interested in doing this and then go to edit HTML in either wordpress or blogger. It’s near the bottom and look for the < href="data:comment.authorUrl" rel="nofollow"> and remove the rel=”nofollow’ and click expand widget at the top box of code. You will also want to put a widget like the one above. To find more click on this great blog Randa Clay. She has some different colored ones. Just right click to save to your computer. While there, click on the site that shows you exactly how to modify it for blogger. It’s very easy. I hope you join the revolution!
