Taking out the Trash: the groundhog was wrong!

Time for another edition of Taking out the Trash, the semi-regular posts that may or may not have something to do with saving money but are not specific deals.  I have a lot on my mind so I’m cleaning out the “garbage” in my head by Taking out the Trash.

March is here!  Good riddance to February, which seemed like one of the loooongest months I’ve ever been through.  I apologize to winter sports enthusiasts out there, but I have had enough of the snow!  It’s one thing when you have a huge storm dumping snow, it’s another to have it snow a few inches every couple of days.   UGH.  Stick a fork in me, I’m done!

Speaking of winter, don’t forget that you still have time to enter our Winter Giveaway.  A $25 gift card to Chili’s could be yours!   Our contests are straight-forward: one entry per person.  You don’t need to enter every day.  Duplicates will be discarded.

We’re already thinking ahead to our 2nd anniversary giveaway this spring, so here’s a question for you: what local businesses would you like to see featured for prizes?  Think restaurants, salons, spas, etc.  Feel free to comment here or on Facebook.

This week’s coupon class at Ashwaubenon Library was great!  I love getting out and talking to people, in some cases meeting long-time readers!  Be sure to check our home page for any upcoming classes.

I’ve been working on our family’s taxes this week–oh, joy!  No, really, we have it so easy compared to the pre-computer days.  I remember my dad would pull out these huge files and sit at the kitchen table for what seemed like days!  Now you can download Tax Cut or Turbo Tax and do it in a few hours.  That is, unless you have four kids interrupting you.  😉

I’m hoping to get to the Community Supported Agriculture Expo this weekend, as well as trips to Copps for Double Double Days, Piggly Wiggly for Double Coupons, Aldi and Festival Foods, too.  In other words, a busy weekend involving groceries is in store!

I’m off for my 24-hour Digital Detox.  Some weekends I’m more successful than others at staying away from the computer and other electronics.  Looks like I won’t have too much time to sit down with all the plans I’ve got!

“See” you back here on Sunday.
