This week's sale highlights:
50% off coupon at Michaels!
The regular 40% off at da HobLobs.
40% one regular item at JOANN, plus some random sewing coupons- however, if you are in the OKC area, the new location has 50% coupons for each day of the Grand Opening, this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as well as a 10.00 gift card to the first 100 people each day. Arrive early, first come, best dressed, all that...
As much as I want to complain about Mondays, they can have their light and bright moments. One of my favorite 'Monday Moments?' (And can I ever stop thinking up little catchy names for things? No. Probably not. Sorry.)
My favorite 'Monday Moment' happens before 8am. Every Monday. I settle into my cubicle with a cup of coffee and moments later, my boss walks through the door. Most people might not like to see their boss walk through the door. But I love her. She looks a bit like Joan Collins in her Dynasty days, with the withering glare to back the look up. She's also hysterically funny and both gets and enjoys my sense of humor. I can't ever think about quitting because I can't leave my boss. So, what happens when she walks in the door? She throws the HOBBY LOBBY and MICHAELS newspaper ads/circulars onto my desk.
And then I clip out my coupons.
Yes, I do have all the apps on my phone. The Michaels app. The Joann's app. And I have the Hobby Lobby coupon webpage saved as a bookmark on my phone's screen. But they tend to be a bit slow- especially the Michaels app. I have to start loading it about the time I reach fourth in line to the cashier. There's never a short line at Michael's.
But I love my paper coupons. They're convenient. I like having a wallet full of them. I also like having extras. If the app is working, I use it and give the paper coupon to whoever looks the nicest in line behind me. And by 'looks the nicest,' I don't mean 'the most attractive.' I mean the one that looks to be, or is, the most polite. That means someone who isn't yapping into their cell phone or complaining about one thing or another or or or....
Because if I make life better by sharing my coupons, maybe that will assuage my guilt over not recycling my wine bottles. I do try to remember the recycling bin, I really do.
