Fabulous Friday, Oct. 31st

First of all I hope every has a Happy Halloween. Remember to keep those kids close. Crime seems to run rampant on this day.

Next I need to tell you guys that I went to Kmart but it was a total bust. I decided before I went that if I didn't need it and it was going to be above $1 I wasn't going to buy it, I have so much put back right now I am TOTALLY running out of room. Well anyway, I hit the Oak Ridge Kmart and the stores were practically bare! Everything that I had planned on getting that was on sale and I had an awesome coupon for was already sold out. I was very disappointed. I did get to participate in the Kroger savings that was yesterday from 4 to 12 midnight, so that made me feel a little better, but not much. I hope that you guys have better luck at your stores. I also hope that you made a trip earlier in the week because now may be too late, but if you are in the area I would still give it a try.

Money saving Tip #3:
Okay those holidays are coming up. We all know what happens on Thanksgiving and Christmas, we eat like pigs and feel like stuffed hogs! We always walk away from the table feeling guilty and saying, "Boy I need to join a gym!" Then society tells us that we have to have a New Year's resolution and what is the first we thing we think of it is none other than JOINING A GYM. How many of you have obtained a gym membership, paid hundreds of dollars and then never even went to the facility? Here is a better way. Most gyms have a trial membership, right? If they don't advertise it then ask about it. Tell them you would like to try it out for a month first. That way if you don't like that gym you can move on to another one and try their membership...if you live in a big town with 12 gyms well you just might get a whole year for free! But I digress, I know that it is cheaper to buy the year membership at most gyms than it is to pay that monthly fee, BUT I am here to tell you that you need to at least do a one month free trial to see if you will stick with it. Trust me buying the membership will not make you get you shape. If you buy the membership but have no time to go to the gym all you did was waste your money. So first put a little effort into making the time to go AND then pay for the membership. I still like the free gym for a year thing, don't you?
