Good Morning! Well today is my birthday and I am hoping to receive enough money to add to my Christmas money and buy a new computer!! So it looks like I should be back on the site in the next few days!!! Stay Tuned! The timing couldn't be better. My computer is now making pinball noises when I open it up and then makes a clicking sound while using it. Videos are now messed up....it is a hot mess! I don't expect that it will last past this week. So I am so looking forward to a new computer!!!!
One Week Until New Computer
Posted March 17, 2015
Only one more week until I can get another computer!!! Woo-Hoo! Once I make the purchase, I will have to get it set up and everything transferred over and then I will be back here on the site. My lap top is so bad right now that many of the keys are now stuck and I almost have to bang on the keys to get them to print. The computer is making an awful grinding sound. I would be surprised if my computer lasts one more week to tell you the truth. Anyway....I will be back on here soon!!!
2 Weeks Until New Computer
Posted March 10, 2015
Good Morning everyone! Well......I have been off the site for awhile now. And I know that some of you have wondered where in the world I have been or if I have given up the site.
I started having computer issues around December which were made worse when my husband dropped my lap top. The screen is cracked, multi-colored fluid is leaking behind the screen, the speakers don't work and the computer freezes every 10 minutes which makes it almost impossible to get deals to you here on the site. I have been shopping around for a new computer but decided to go with an expensive one that will hold up beter than this HP. I need a business computer. Sooooo.....I saved the money I received at Christmas and am now waiting on my birthday, March 23rd, for additional money to buy a really nice lap top. I have about two weeks before I will have the new computer and can get back on here. Thank you for being so patient and I hope you will return to the site once I am back!!!!
I am redesigning he look of the site. I have been for quite awhile now. I hope to get that finished up once I receive the new lap top So don't be surprised if you come here one day and see a completely different looking page! I am quite proud of it!!

There's a hot new coupon today for $1.50 of (2) packs of Band-Aids. You should be able to find some good deals over at Walmart with this coupon Some people are finding Band-Aid coupons on the clearance aisle at Walmart. I haven't been over to the store near me so I can't verify for sure that you will find any here in Kernersville. But if you print this coupon, be sure to look on the clearance aisle just in case.
Finally made it through an entire deal without my computer shutting off...Woo-hoo!
HOW TO FIGURE PERCENTAGE SAVED
Posted March 13, 2014
There are several ways to determine your percentage of savings on deals but I am going to show you my way which is pretty easy. All you do is to divide the amount saved by the total amount (before coupons). Here is an example.
Dove Deodorant - $4.89
-$2.00 manufacturer coupon
-$1.00 store coupon
Final Cost; $1.89
To see how much you saved on this deal;
$3.00 (amount saved after coupons....$2 + $1) divided by $4.89 (total amount before coupons) = 61%
**And voila.......you have determined your savings in one easy step. I will simplify this today and keep it on the site so you can refer to it anytime you need to determine your savings.
