Back 2 School is Here

Well, school started for the kids today. We have spent the last several weeks getting ready. I had purchased a lot of school supplies early even though the school said not to purchase anything until after today. (I think they should have had a list for the older grades so parents could get things ahead of time.) I ended up with a few extra 3 ring notebooks but figure they will need them at the semester change. If not I will just stash them in my school supply drawer for next year. It would have been a disaster if we waited until tonight as we needed a few extra things and I went and fought the crowds at Walmart and Walgreen's and they didn't have what we needed. I will be checking Fred's and Dollar General on my lunch tomorrow for those things. While I was at Walgreen's I went ahead and got the free body wash and some 7-up. They didn't have any of the other things I wanted to get.
Things will be getting back to normal soon so watch for more posts.

A poll I received in my email

A one question poll.


This is your chance to vote on Obama's performance on this Economy-AT&T/Yahoo Poll... NOTE: this is a totally unbiased poll. The question is stated very simply... and, to the point. No tricks. No hidden messages. No nothing. JUST A SINGLE, SIMPLE QUESTION. There is no way that anyone can say that it was not a fair poll... or, that it was "phrased" in a way that it can be interpreted later... to fit someone else's desired answer. In other words... it is a spin-doctor's "nightmare."

NOTE: After you vote, you will see a second page that shows the running total and what the opinions are.

Then pass it on... so others can cast their vote.

Country Mart $.40

I made a small run to Country Mart today. I got 10 Tony's Pizza for One for $10. Then I used 10 $.50 coupons from a recent insert that was doubled. This made me only pay taxes. I ended up with 4 pepperoni and 6 cheese pizzas. These are great to have on hand as we have teenagers that stay home during the summer days while we are at work. I convince myself that these are better than chips or snacks full of sugar they could be eating. The Tony's Pouches were also 10/$10 but they were out. I have more coupons so I got a rain check. (Back to school soon. Don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing with school lunches being so high!)
