Black Friday Shopping Tips

I'm in between my 2nd and 3rd store of the evening and someone asked if I had any black friday shopping tips.

These are the ones that came to mind right away...


  • Don't take a purse.
  •  If you're buying a few items don't get a shopping cart,
  •  If you are buying several small small items that are hard to hold get the hand basket not the cart.
  • Make a list ahead of time. 
    • I use note cards. One for each store. I write the price and the item I'm going to buy.
Using the list and knowing the price helps you prioritize if you need to change course.
Example... When I was just at walmart an item I wanted was on sale for $5 off and it was at the back of the store and there were TONS of people... not work $5 to me.

I was in and out of Walmart in less than 10 minutes.

CrockPot Potato Soup



This recipe was a hit! I was able to put it in the Crockpot and clean the house. Dinner was ready and it didn't take away from everything else I needed to do. And it didn't make the house hot.

Apple Pie in a Mason Jar

Yesterday was election day and the votes are in and everything was counted and only one person could win. My question wouldnt be who you voted for but if you voted. If you did regardless of what color you associate with congratulations.

Even more American than voting and elections... Apple Pie. You know it is true!

Go VOTE!


 

 Whether you like or dislike the current administration you have the right to go and make your voice heard.
This post isnt about who I cast my ballot for or for who you choose but instead the act of choosing.

I went and early voted last week and to be honest it was the first time I have voted out of the 3 elections I have been eligible for. Maybe it is a matter of being older or maybe I am just more in tuned to what goes on in the world. But this is the first vote I felt mattered.

So leave me a comment. Tell me that you voted. I am not worried about who. We will find out who wins at the end of the day.

Remember this is your chance to make your voice heard. If you dont vote for what you want you have little room to voice later what you wish would have happened.
