|The best part of Thanksgiving- my turkey, cranberry sauce, havarti cheese, and homemade rolls leftovers sandwich!|
Did y'all have a good Thanksgiving Weekend? Mine was busy (because I have a JOB now), but good. I spent a lot of time working on my other websites. I posted over 30 deals and sales to Cutting Back and Going Green. Have you checked them out yet? Personally, I have to say the Harry Potter movies complete set for $40 is an incredible deal (in comparison, most major retailers are selling it for $99.99), and a 3D Blu-ray player with Wifi for $99 can't be beat. If you check out my site you'll also find I've installed a widget where you can compare prices for any product with what it is going for on Amazon. I really recommend checking it before you buy anything online!
I also posted a few new things to my politically minded blog, Swing State Voter. I'm hoping to help people understand the significance of the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primaries. Personally, I find the primary nomination system fascinating, mostly because it is so undemocratic and unfair in the long run. If anyone wants to get into that discussion (argument) with me, I'm game!
Having a job again has really improved my spirits. Even if the job is just part-time holiday work, it feels really good to know that for the next four weeks I won't have to ask for help, and I can support myself, even if only just barely. It really feels good to be able to take care of myself again. Just having a reason to get out of the bed and get dressed every day really makes a huge difference in my spirits.
I've never taken the time to bother decorating for Christmas. First and foremost, I'm just not one who cares much about holiday decorations. (I find most to be tacky.) Second, I've never seen the point in decorating just for me. But I'm not only considering decorating this year, I may even buy a real tree and put it up. But then again, that means spending money on myself during a tight budget month. So maybe not. We'll see. But I'm liking the idea of decorations and a tree this year, even if I will be spending it alone.
