This journal is friends-only. If you would like to be added, please comment thusly. Provided that you're not a stalker, someone I actively dislike, or someone who should clearly not be reading my thoughts on a regular basis, I'll be happy to let you in.
So this was going to be a preview of sales to come, but instead I'm going to throw a few awesome deals at you - things I've gotten for free or super cheap this week, and you can do the same!
( Coupons ala Jen part 3: things to go buy now!Collapse )
Last entry I shared with you that I don't do well with big giant projects hanging over my head. This time around I'll also share that I don't do well with organization. I'm known to make a system that I think is marvelous, use it for 3 days, throw all the rules out and make a new system that is entirely different. Lather, rinse, repeat.
But to do couponing well, you have to be organized. (I tried doing it on the fly. I ended up with crumpled coupons in the pockets of my pants, coat, and purse, while standing in CVS completely unable to remember what I wanted to buy and how much I was supposed to pay for it. Not cool.)

I don't do well with big giant projects hanging over my head - I will find a million and one things to do, in order to procrastinate and avoid the BGP. For that reason, the posts of coupony goodness are going to come out a bit at a time. Please ask questions and give feedback so I have things to write about next time, lest I avoid writing more.
Also, this ended up being a popular topic (dang, I didn't even know some of you still read this!), so no filter - instead will lj cut liberally. If you're really offended by coupons and coupon talk ... um, you should work on that. ;)
Finally, this coupon series is public so I can link people who don't have LJs/aren't my LJ friends. Feel free to link people in, if you'd like to.

So, Jen needs shoes for a bachelorette party in a few weeks. We're apparently going to spend hours drinking our faces off, getting all made up and dressed up, eating dinner, drinking more, going to a comedy show, drinking more, going to a club, drinking more, and then drinking some. Despite this being a recipe for disaster, I need some cute shoes to wear for this shindig. (I also need some cute clothes, because as I told Caroline earlier today, I'm a housewife who moonlights as a pig farmer's public relations/apprentice, and those roles don't lend themselves to cute, generally speaking). BUT - we're talking shoes here, not clothes.
I ramble and there are pictures (and one is LARGE) so I'm going to put this behind a ( cut!Collapse )

This year's topic is a simple one: tell us, and your readers, why you're pro-choice.
I'm pro-choice because I believe abortion is not immoral, terrible, or wrong. I'm pro-choice because I believe the only person suited to make a decision about her body is an individual woman, and whatever choice she makes for herself is inherently valid. I'm pro-choice because I believe in freedom, compassion, and respect. I'm pro-choice.
