WHAT'S UP???

What's Up???? In two words....
MOD PODGE!!!!

Just getting these letters was an adventure!!! Each letter was $5.99.... not to expensive but when you can get a coupon for 40% off it is a steal!!!! One catch.... the store only lets you use ONE coupon for ONE purchase in ONE day!!!! I needed FOUR letters!!! So I enlisted the help of a devious teenager friend of mine. I handed her two five dollar bills and two letters and instructed her to go to one cashier for one letter and then to another cashier for the other..... I had planned on doing the same!!! The master plan would have worked out GREAT if... the cashiers would have stayed in their designated spots!!! Each time we went to purchase the second letter, the other cashier would leave the register and the same cashier would offer to help. I was just waiting for the COUPON POLICE to come and stop us from our illegal coupon use!!! Really what is up with these up tight teenagers these days??? Would it have killed them to turn an innocent eye to our need for using coupons in such an illicit act???? Thankfully the Mod Podge was on for 30% off and I did not need to sneak for the discount!!!

Big plans for the Mod Podge on Friday when I will complete this nursery project and be on step closer towards Tate's Kingdom!!!! I did find out yesterday that my sales ability for booking airlines tickets was rewarded with a $100.00 bonus!!! I will be buying a mattress so I can put the crib together...... One step closer!!!!

Lisa, can't wait to see what you have planned for the letters. I've seen other waiting parents do some pretty cool things.

Lisa, I have to admit that I do the same thing with the coupons! I'm guessing that you went to Robert's??? Sometimes I would go there with dh and kids and send them all off to different registers too. Anything to save a buck!!!
