My chin has had a busy day. This morning I noticed a giant pimple there. Thankfully, I got some solid advice regarding zits from a friend awhile back. She said to put a dab of hand sanitizer on the pimple when you first notice it. It actually works and works fast. As I was putting some Purell on the mammoth zit another chin issue came to my attention. I found two witch hairs …TWO. And to add insult to injury they were gray. Naturally, I put the Purell down and tweezed the witch hairs immediately. Just for good measure and to appease my OCD, I picked the Purrell back up and dabbed some where the hairs where, too.
I also took some time today after a trip to the grocery to do a little simple math. Besides counting witch hairs, I was curious about some money saving moves we've made since I lost my job. After trading in my car and getting something a little nicer on our budget (Honda Fit) we’ll save about $200 a month. This was the first time I walked out of a dealership and actually played the negotiating game to get the price I wanted. Tiffany and I played good cop bad cop. We were like Cagney and Lacey up in those dealerships. It was not only money saving, but also fun. I also have gotten serious about coupons. You’d be surprised at the savings, which for us is starting to add up to just over $200 a month. Sure it takes some work, but it is worth it. Below are a couple of my favorite links. Good luck and May the Shopping Force Be With You.
