WFMW - online shopping edition

Yep, I'm still sick, so this is a really short post. But I couldn't resist posting a little something when I saw that today's (ok, yesterday's) WFMW is on the theme of online shopping. Because I have the best trick when it comes to online shopping:

www.retailmenot.com

Whenever I want to make a purchase online, I go there first and type in the name of the online store. Up pops a list of every available coupon code known to man, along with a percentage letting you know how often it has worked for people and comments about why it is or isn't working. More often than not I end up getting 15% off, or free shipping, or something like that. For about 30 seconds worth of work. Works for me!

For more good ideas, go visit Shannon's site. Just don't tell anyone that I sent you a day late. ;)

Also? I'm really, really sick. I think it is most likely the flu (the real one, with lots of respiratory ickiness) or pneumonia. If it isn't significantly better by tomorrow, I'm heading to the doctor. Prayer would be appreciated, not only for me but for my long-suffering husband who is trying to work, and take care of me, and take care of the (also sick) kids, and keep the house running. He's a good man, that one.

What a handy site, thanks! I've looked for something like that, but I've never found anything that comprehensive.

I'm sorry to hear that you're still so sick though! I hope you are feeling a little better today, that sounds awful. I'll keep you in my prayers.

Thanks for the link. I've never heard of a site like that.

Hope you are feeling better!

I was searching for "The Music Machine" music and your blog popped up. I just love your posts on being a mom. I am 27 and have 3 boys. They are the love of my life. It's refreshing to hear someone that is Godloving and loves being a mother. Thanks!
