i watch 4 sales, ads, coupons, etcetera, that may apply to me, & have my family keep their eyes open. holiday shopping is my beloved, as w/ coupons, deals, etcetera, u can buy so many items that would normally be so $$$$~
& i shop black Fridays @ Christmas~

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

dollar stores for me.......we have a close well-managed Family Dollar Store that is clean, well-lit and merchandis is stocked where you'd expect it to be..............where you really save are on items for entertaining: party goods, ribbons, wrapping paper, bags, paper plates, cups, knapkins...........these are what you pay premium in the grocery stores........and furthermore seasonal items for Christmas, Easter, etc.........it's the best place to save money..........

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
