Want to earn extra cash?

It's no secret that the economy is causing headaches for everyone! I have gone through 2 jobs in a year and a half and am always in favor of a back-up plan. I sell Avon as a second job, but the best part is most of my business is online so I can do it easily while working my "day" job! There are a number of similar jobs you can do like this...Avon, Tupperware, Mary Kay (yeah, I'm biased...prefer Avon products!), Gold Canyon Candles, Pampered Chef...etc. Don't be too quick to laugh these off...many reps make a substantial living with these and I can't begin to say enough about the opportunities! Check them out! (and if you are interested in Avon...check my site at - happy to sign you up!

Save More, Waste Less...

Visit for ways to save and help the environment at the same time!
A few of their suggestions:

* Cut down on paper towel purchases/use by keeping washcloths on hand in the kitchen to mop up spills!

* Make water your drink of choice and carry a refillable bottle!

* Transfer shampoo, conditioner (and...I added the lotion) into pump bottles and use just one pump per application!

Be aware...

I recently mentioned the great deals on - be aware that in many (all?) cases...the restaurants you use these certificates at will add the gratuity (based on total bill without certificate) to your check! Oops...I failed to read the fine-print on Friday night and ended up doubling the tip...ouch! And, yes, I did call the restaurant as I felt it was their responsibility to also mention that the gratuity had already been added on! They are taking care of it, but from now on you can bet I will read every bit of fine print on the certificate AND the bill!

Air-headed? I think not!

Whenever you take a flight anywhere on any airline, be sure to sign-up for the airline's frequent flyer program! You may not fly it often, but terms vary as to how long the miles are good toward a free ticket. And, at the very least, you may earn other rewards such as free magazine subscriptions, etc...The same is true of hotel and car rental rewards. Always become a member if it is free...what do you have to lose?? :)

Quadruple your grocery savings!

My favorite savings deal is back at Fry's/Fry's Marketplace here in Phoenix. For those of you located elsewhere, Fry's is affiliated with Kroger so check to see if this offer applies there!

Currently they will quadruple your coupons AND they will accept coupons from their major grocery competitors (here that is Basha's, Safeway, Fresh & Easy, Albertson's and Walmart). The cool thing is they will also accept the store coupons in addition to manufacturers' coupons for the same items...lots of savings that way. And I love the Fresh & Easy coupons that offer you $3 off a shopping trip...They will take as many of those at Fry's as you show up my case $12 alone was saved with 4 of those coupons.
