    Well, I have mostly organized my room- walk in closet, drawers. I went thru my clothes and have lost enough weight that I am down at least a size in pants. I did join the gym(under $10 a month) I am clearing the pantry and getting ready to sell some items. I wanted to get organized because once I start work again I will not have time. I am praying about the job. I have a tentative offer but the pay is much lower here in the Sacramento area. I really do not want to travel but may have to in order ...

  4. After the Rush

    Today, I was able to buy five gift sets of perfume from Hedi Klum and Beyonce for 20.00. Walgreens had a 50% off sale. I brought two sets at 10.00 down from 19.99 and three sets at 7.49 down from 14.99. The origninal price came to 45.00. I had 5, five dollar coupons off for each of the sets. My total was 20.00. I found two more coupons an I plan to go to another Walgreens for other sets. Not bad, not bad at all. I will report back with my other findings. Stay tune.
