A Little Filler

I know I took another big break from posting. It was mostly due to a lack of internet access over my vacation. It was my first vacation so I suppose it was a good thing over all (For those wondering, yes many coupons were used but not so many that I focused on it).

I have been doing research on upcoming topics for my posts and hope to have a new on up next week. For the time being however a couple of quick updates:

1) This weekend is the tax-free holiday for school supplies in the great state of Alabama. The tax exemption is primarily for K-12 students and is rather limited and very strict. It includes items such as computers not exceeding $750 and clothing not exceeding $30. I find it best to look at the rules and adhere to them rather than to try and loosely interpret them as it will just lead to frustration of you and the sales person who has no control of the tax status of the item. You can find all the info you need (which can be clear as mud) here.

2) A list of topics I am considering:
-Affording a kid (because not all college students are sans family obligations)
-Going green to save green
-Pampering without the price
-Keep the receipt (the value behind the proof of purchase)

3) My favorite! I now have my own business cards! They aren't as pretty as some I designed on my computer but they were totally free and look professional so I can't (and won't) complain. I also have a business card hold I received for free from so I can keep them on me to give to anyone curious about my blog. (sadly I expect to use them primarily for giving out contact info to my friends but that still makes them useful).

Well that's all for now, thanks for reading and hope to see you again soon!
