Mergers & Acquisitions

So today, the big-wigs at work sprang a big surprise on everyone.  Everything that we’ve heard is that the company I work for has been doing well.  However, today there was a meeting with the 2 people that founded the company and the current CEO.  They’re doing a merger with 2 other companies, our sister […]

Extreme Couponing; Old Goals and New Goals

So, I’ve started a new hobby.  One that I’m finding rather fun even though it has nothing to do with gaming or computers (except in that I read blogs to help me find more deals).  There’s using coupons and there’s this. I’m not an expert at it yet, but between matching coupons and sales, I […]

New Year, New Decade

I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions because I feel like if I’m not going to start today, I’m not going to start Jan 1, but I do have goals for the coming year(s). I’m giving myself a deadline of Jul 2014 to reach my goal weight.  That seems like a long time, but if […]

For Love or (of?) Money

California unloads on eBay (Opens in a new window) To help close the gap in the budget, California is selling their surplus on eBay instead of just auctioning it like most states.  To try to get more money out of these repos and impounds, the governor is autographing many of the items.  All a great idea, […]

It’s All a Matter of Perspective

It’s been rather difficult for me to post lately.  The area that everyone was saying wasn’t going to be affected has been affected pretty badly.  The company my husband works for laid off 25 people.  Another company in town laid off over 200, and oil wells are closing down.  It’s become as bleak here as […]

Doh! (in Homer Simpson’s Voice lol)

I obviously haven’t been keeping up with the national news.  A week after my last postm I see the picture of Michelle Obama digging for a garden and the information that they’re encouraging everyone to plant one.  Oops! *edit, I just found this in my drafts dated 3/26.  I thought I published it, but I […]

Money and the Environment Redux

I have a couple of tips today.  The first one was one that I got in my email this morning that I hadn’t thought about in awhile.  Ideal Bite sent out an email reminding everyone that you use less printer ink if you set your printing to Draft when the print quality doesn’t matter.  Save […]

Words and Spelling

Since I’m an avid reader – otherwise known as a bookworm – and have become a writer of sorts, I’ve noticed I’ve developed a pet peeve.  Maybe it’s being nitpicky, after all it’s just a minor annoyance. However, if you’re writing advertising copy especially for the web, you really should make sure you know how […]

SNAFU (Situation Normal, All Fucked Up)

Ok, those of you who know me know I don’t normally curse or otherwise use bad language.  It’s a product of my upbringing, and I’ve always felt that people resort to that kind of language when they can’t think of the appropriate ‘real’ word.  However, the more I think about it, the less I can […]

Money and the Environment Part II

First, just a small and easy thing to do.  It’s not much but it’ll add up.  When you go to the bank drive through, reuse the envelope they send the money in.  That’s one less envelope that’ll be put in the trash.  I have several envelopes from my Credit Union in my purse that I […]
