1. America First Credit Union. I've been a member of America First since before we were married and have loved every minute of it! But just today I was reminded why I stay with them! We applied for a new loan with them and when the nice loan officer called to verify everything, we were also able to refinance my car for 1 1/2% lower than it was right now and extend our line of credit! 3 deals all over the phone!
2. Reusable shopping bags. Every Earth day, I watch Oprah and she gives awsome tips about how to do our part to save our Mother Earth. She always stresses the importance of using reusable shopping bags instead of the plastic ones. So i've built me up quite the stock pile of them when I go to the store (they're only .99 at most stores). Well I had a horrible experience at Walmart 2 weeks ago. If you're ever at the one on 6200 S and 5600 W, and your checker's name is Patti (or "Unfriendly Patti" as I like to refer to her as), make sure and whip out those reusable bags, because she just loves filling those bad boys with groceries! (sarcasm, very thick!) But they seriously hold so many groceries. Today I went to the Library, Costco, Harmon's and Home Depot and didn't have to use a plastic bag at any of them! TIP: Harmons, Smiths, Sunflower Market, Albertson's and I think IKEA all credit you 5 cents for every reusable bag that you use!
4. KSL.com. I'm a sucker for deals, so I usually browse the classifieds just to see what people are selling and what people are looking for and even what people are giving away for FREE! Sometimes I laugh so hard at the free section and just read it for the fun of it, because some people are so funny. But I'm also quite the seller on there. This weekend we sold a dresser, swamp cooler and a set of golf clubs! Speaking of KSL, does anyone have some red paint that they're getting rid of or done using? I have my cute little bench that I want to paint red, but i'm not sure that I'd use a whole can. I'm hoping to use like a colonial red. Let me know yo!
