    Yes, it's time to start writing on fresh new pages and typing on new spreadsheets!
    This month, PC Plus and Optimum program participants have to see whether they can use up their points before the February 1 points conversion takes place under the new PC Optimum program. Rather expecting that cashiers will have cards and information by mid-January so the end of the month is not a crunch time for registration.

    Make sure you have recycled those 2017 coupons lingering behind in the New Year or put them to crafting uses.

    Who got to party last night somewhere away from home?

    It’s hard to believe that January is nearly here and my break from Daycare kids is nearly over. School doesn’t start again until January 8, so most of my daycare kids won’t return until then.

    DH and I defrosted our upright freezer yesterday so it is all organized for 2018 and ready to be restocked with good deals although it is pretty full.

    DH and I stayed in last night as it was too cold to go out.

    I need to work on some coupons.. I do not use them nearly enough... and I really need to workon them a bit.

    my plan for the day is menu planing, spendinga hour or 3 on on my daycare craft/ spare toy area. I need to get it much cleaner. it will also help me with over spending on supplies I have enough on.. and using things up that I have multiple of... anyone have a use for over 500 pipecleaners....

    @Giseledta pipecleaner ideas: have the kids bend the pipecleaners to practice their letters and numbers, pipecleaners and beads are a great combination for kids to practice making patterns or make bracelettes.

    Happy New Year to all! DH and I stayed home as it was bitterly cold (-40ish with the windchill) and we both had had enough socializing in the past week and a half. We made surf and turf at home and we are having the kids and grandkids over for ham tonight.

    I wish everyone the kind of 2018 you deserve. };-p

    I only started spreadsheeting last summer, so I know mine can be improved upon. I'm not one for resolutions, but this is a (maybe not so) little task I've set for myself over the next few days.

    I'm hoping the next couple of weeks will bring more specifics on how PC OPT will be implemented and work. For instance, will the increase in base points from 10/$ to 15 mean we'll get fewer 20x WUS offers and more 15x or even 10x?
