Los Angeles Times

The family and I were in Los Angeles for the weekend; just a quick weekend to see some of my husband’s family. It was nice, because I got to sleep in and it rained! I so miss the rain here in Arizona.

My brother-in-law so sweetly got me a copy of the Sunday Los Angeles Times, which I had mentioned Friday night. I couldn’t believe he remembered, so kind of him! I miss reading a Sunday paper. We don’t subscribe to the Arizona Republic because it is so conservative. I just can’t support right wing agendas if I don’t have too (which is also why I no longer buy Angel Soft toilet paper, because Angel Soft is owed by the Koch brothers). One of the best parts of a major Sunday newspaper is the opinions and if the newspaper is decidedly more Republican, I know which why those opinions are going to blow.

The reason I wanted the L.A. Times was for the coupons! I am a coupon junkie. No, I haven’t become like those crazy coupon ladies one see’s on television (that is just insane, those people have to build a separate room for all the crap they accumulate and really how many of the exact same type of cereal can one eat before one goes mad??). In the office someone taught me how to coupon properly, there is a whole methodology to this thing….you clip the coupon and than you wait to see when a store is doing a sale on the item or if they provide an in-store coupon, you can couple the two together.

Through my couponing I’ve gotten name brand laundry detergent for $3.00, boxes of specialty tea for $1.00, free Pepperidge farm cookies and much more (in one instance I got rebate money through my couponing)! Yes I will readily admit there is an element of a game here, you look for discounts, you watch for sales, and you combine coupons, like one big treasure hunt! It does take a bit of time, but for me no more than 10 – 15 minutes. Its not for everyone, but if you are like me and enjoy a good deal, you will enjoy this method of saving.

I don't like our local paper because it is fairly conservative.

Re the spambot - you'd think if they wanted you to click on the link for a free iPad, they wouldn't include the word "nude" in it - kind of a giveaway. Or maybe they literally mean "Free the iPad" from porn.
