You Say Tomato, I Say BOGO!
February 24, 2009

Real quick:

Add some southwest dressing, or balsamic vinegar....mmm. This makes me hungry.

Bev Chapman sits near me at work, and she and her photographer were talking about going to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch.

Not that I was eavesdropping…

BUT, I told them about a coupon for a buy-one-get-one-free at the restaurant! Print the coupon here:

Hopefully it works.  I’ll find out tomorrow from them!

PS: I don’t know why my colors are off today…and I can’t color in the first letter of each word…hmm.

Pancakes and Subs and More, Oh My!
February 24, 2009

Hi Everyone,

First off, thanks for the huge response to my Daily Deal on the free Quizno’s Subs.  (I personally printed out three, one on my laptop, desktop and work printer!)

I've also had the Quizno's Sammies, and they're pretty cute.  I wonder if Quizno's took the name from Rachel Ray.  She always calls sandwiches "sammies".

If you guys missed the link, it’s www.MillionSubs.com As of right now (10:30am) there’s just about 200-thousand coupons printed.  That means more than 800-thousand left to download and enjoy!  *hint* the coupons are good within 5 days of printing, so plan accordingly, sub-eaters!

After some confusion, looks like my blog’s been moved to the “Project Economy” section of KMBC.com

By the way, my web editor, Isaac asked me to take a look at some other people’s blogs and take note of what I like and what I don’t like.  One I came across a few days ago: http://thisiswhyyourefat.com it’s fascinating!

Yes, it's a junk food pizza.  Mini tacos, onion rings, and other assorted fried treats on a pizza.  (I feel strangely sick but fascinated by this!)

What I like about this blog is there’s compelling pictures.  (Sometimes too compelling, like this junk food pizza, or the macaroni and cheese topped hotdog.) I wish there was more description on where each of these gross, artery-clogging foods can be found.  (Not that I’m trying track down the McNugget Martini.  Yes, you heard me right!)

Until tomorrow,

Dion 🙂

PS:  Almost forgot to mention the free pancakes at IHOP!  (A suggested donation to Children’s Miracle Network is appreciated.)

Fruit Obesity
February 23, 2009

Not to discriminate or anything…but…

Depending on how you see it, these fruits are either grossly bloated, or extra juicy.

Aren’t the clementines on the bottom shelf just a *wee* bit bigger than the “normal” sized ones on the top shelf?  Haha, not that I have problems eating large clementines, bordering on the size of oranges, or, almost grapefruits…just think it’s kind of funny.

By the way, I’ve mentioned this site before, but it’s SUCH A TREASURE TROVE of good deals, I have to mention it again. www.bradsdeals.com features a very comprehensive list of sales, discounts, bargains and freebies on the net and in real life. Thanks to the site, I got a free pass to shop at one of those exclusive warehouse clubs. (Yessss…no membership fees, no 10% surcharge either!)

An hour later, I ended up with a dozen sausage egg muffins and 10 pounds of green beans…but that’s besides the point. It’s a good deal.

Until tomorrow,

LIM!

Fake Handbags…Fake Coupon?
February 20, 2009

Dios Mio!  What’s next?

This time, it really is too good to be true.

This time, it really is too good to be true.

Coupon buddy Denice passed this on to me awhile back, and after she successfully redeemed it…she was approached by a store employee that showed her an entire binder FULL of these kind of coupons…and explained it was FAKE! 

Keep an eye out for these too good to be true coupons…and if you have doubt, ask the store first.  It’s like printing 100 coupons for free hair elastics…you COULD use them, and very well can get away with it, but it’s not the right thing to do.

D 🙂

PS:  Filling in on the 5pm and 6pm shows tonight.  I’m back with JFlink for the evening!

Apres-Valentine’s Day Goodies
February 16, 2009

Hehehe.  That's my mini dachshund, Frankie.  It's kind of blurry, but his eyes are closed!  What kind of dog closes his eyes during photos?!

Remind me to use caution next time I go to Target the day after Valentine’s Day. I must have battled a dozen ladies, men and red shopping carts to snag these photo frames on 50% off.

See, these after holiday sales are the BEST for holidays where the colors can be used all year round.  This way, I can use the item all year round.  Halloween’s the worst– who wants an orange and black scarf to wear through March?  Even if it’s on sale?!

Long story short, I got a bunch of these frames for 3-bucks so I can FINALLY empty my digital camera.  I swear, it’s like that Walgreens commercial with the firefighter, bride and groom, and cowboy, all scared to be deleted from their camera.  There’s photos from vacations three years ago on my camera!

Gotta run,

Dion

 

What I really want is the green one.  These solid perfume sticks won't spill in my bag...like the Old Spice spilled in my backpack in elementary school.  That's another story though.

PS: My producer, Crystal just asked me where she should get perfume for the best deal.  I told her Sephora’s a favorite, b/c there’s always a bunch of testers around, and if you’re nice, you can snag a lot of free swag.  A nice salesperson this past Saturday gave me about 15 sample packets of men’s face lotion and face scrub to give to my significant other.  Sweet!  Either that or eBay.  eBay is NUTS when it comes to perfume. If you already know what the fragrance smells like you can score PHENOMENAL deals on eBay.  In college, I used to wear this one scent that cost $60 in stores.  (There’s only so many free samples you can ask the woman at Macy’s for, before she gets suspicious.)  I went on eBay, and got a BRAND NEW BOTTLE, not a store tester that’s been used or anything…for just $25.

PPS:  Thanks to the nice woman who stopped me in the Sephora to say she liked my work.  It always means a lot! 😉
