Yesterday I had to rush Mr. Tesla to the Vet as he had what looked like a tumor on his bottom and he was in extreme pain. They fixed him up and I had them also give him all his shots while I had him there as he doesn't handle the trip over there well and he HATES the entire staff. I don't know why as they're the gentlest practice I know of in this area. He just acts so ugly to all of them; they have to give him "kitty chillers" just to work on him. Back to his problem - an infected anal gland. They cleaned it out and gave him a shot of antibiotic and a pain reliever. He is a MUCH happier cat today.
Sunday morning we discovered our heat was out.. always happens on a Sunday too when the Repair call will cost double. Well Scott decided that he would see if he could get it working himself and save us that money. It turned out to be a switch and he got it all cleaned up and reset the switch and we had heat once more. YEAH! Then yesterday when I got home from work it was again off and it was COLD in here. I let Scott know and then I just sat next to our electric space heater until I took Tesla to the Vet. When Scott got home from work he was able to reset that switch again and got it going. He has ordered a replacement switch that he will install as soon as it arrives. I'm very thankful for my "Handy hubby".... who needs all that other stuff!
I also went to Kmart and CVS yesterday and got some GREAT deals on some other items.
I think coupons are definitely worthwhile if used in combination with a GREAT sale. I also went to Bi-Lo while Tesla was at the Vets and saved another $30 using my Bi-Lo Bonus card and coupons AND I earned 40 cents off every gallon of gas up to 20 gallons at the Shell Station. NOT BAD!
Saving Well Spending Less's You Tube Channel. (She has a LOT of really GREAT tips on how to utilize coupons to your best advantage.) And I LOVE it! It comes with everything you see... a clear bag that it fits nicely in, a sorting mat, a pair of scissors and "The Couponizer". I've all ready saved enough using coupons this week to pay for this as well as getting 13 weeks of the Newspaper so that I can get the ads and the weekly coupons. I bought my Couponizer from Amazon for $23.94 shipping included in this price. I wish I could take advantage of all the printable coupons but we use Linux and none of the coupon sites support it so I'm poo out of luck on that one. OH well!
