    I looked on Amazon and the lowest priced one was $44.99 and it ships in one to three months. Is that really how much they are? I may have to start saving up and pick one up next year.... Hopefully, it will move to around $40 with tax by then.

    The expense might be higher because I'm looking for a power bar with surge protector. Last year, a horrible storm fried all our electronics, including DH's Blackberry and our Mac computer. $50 is a small price to pay compared to buying a new Mac.

    The power bar for my tv has surge protection, and a spot where stuff gets turned off, and spots that always stay on . things like the dvd player need to be off... but the box for cable needs to stay on....

    we have the surge protector and it was 20.00. I know this because I just cleared out the receipt. It was on sale.
    Friends don't let real friends pay full price.

    I'm tired today but had a wonderful week with our house guests! Nice to have my house back though!! stopped at Independent to grab some milk and I spied a huge turkey (grade a) for .98 a pound so picked it up, It was just a tad over 28 pounds. I like to cook huge turkeys because to me the gravy is always better and there is lots for my family to take home!! It should take about a week to defrost and then I will brine it.
    Husband and I are going to spend one last night at our cabin tomorrow, everything is put away, docks are out of the water and the boat is winterized and in storage so we will just chill and go for a walk if it doesn't rain and watch a movie.In the morning we will clean and empty the fridges and strip the beds and batten down the hatches for another winter. I need to do all the outside windows next week and clean up my flower pots and raised beds, I picked up some tulip and other spring bulbs to plant so must do that soon too. Hope everyone has a frugal and fun weekend!!

    Plus one on the Jan Sport back packs, they are awesome!!

    I totally organized and cleaned up the front hall and closet. Now it looks like you are actually walking into someone's home.

    I prepped for supper as DH went to Chatham to visit his sister and bil and mum. He'll be pooped when he gets back. I thawed some chicken breasts and am marinating them in the remains of sweet pickle juice and lemon juice. I cut up the cauliflower that I bought on the clearance rack yesterday. A few bits went into a bag of veggie bits that I am keeping to make some soup.
    I also got some 50% off lemon chicken rice. So that will round out supper. I may drizzle some honey on the chicken before I roast it.

    I got mango spears for 50% off yesterday too and had them for a snack yesterday and today.

    Talk later. Have a good weekend!

Ground bison (free from my dad), cherry tomatoes (from my garden) sour cream (paid to take home from Air Miles offers), grated cheese (cheap from sale), taco seasoning ($0.30 for 1/2 packet from Air Miles offer), healthy soft taco shells (Air Miles offer), and a glass of milk.

    Glad you are feeling better, coupon girl! You are smart to pace yourself.

    "Doors Open London" is on today and tomorrow. A great chance to see some sites for free. Also fall festivals. It's chilly and damp, though, but hey- that's October for you!
