Funny Dave Ramsey post

For all you Dave Ramsey fans, this post is too funny! Check it out at Finance Gets Personal.

Publix deals 10-29 thru 11-04

Remember at Publix they take any competitor's coupons (ex: Target, Food Lion, etc.).

For BOGO items, they charge 1/2 price for each item, so you only have to buy one if you want, and you can use a coupon on each item.

They double all coupons up to $.50.

FYI: I have found that sometimes I can't print some coupons in Internet Explorer and I have to open them in Mozilla FireFox.

These are the deals that I thought were the best, see the ad for all the deals.

Great Chicken Deal!!

I went to Ingles tonight to take advantage of their sale on Sanderson Farms boneless, skinless chicken tenders for $1.98/lb, b/c the sale ends tonight.

I got 10 lbs for $20. The total was $45 before they scanned my Ingles card to get the sales price.

What will I do with all this chicken, you may ask. Check out a post on one of my favorite blogs, Mommy Making Money, for some great ideas.

Read this e-mail from Dave Ramsey

We are at a crucial time in our country's financial history. Congress defeated the $700 billion bailout plan on Monday. However, they are revising it and trying to push it through again. I'm supporting an alternative plan that will keep our nation from going even deeper in debt, and I've been on TV and radio all week telling people about it.

We need everyone's help!

Follow the instructions below. Together we can change history.


Pray for them to resist a spirit of FEAR and to embrace WISDOM. Even if you don't like them or agree with them, pray for them and tell them you are praying for them. There is a spirit over this problem that must be broken. Also, most of the media personalities are afraid as well and that is affecting their reporting. Pray for fear to be removed from them; they are making this worse.


Send The Common Sense Fix to your Representatives and Senators and tell them how you expect them to vote, and that if they put this nation in $700 billion of debt, that you will vote them out. It's their job to listen to us! (Whichever presidential candidate or political party that champions this plan from their leadership down will likely become the next president. That is because this plan fixes the crisis while going along with the wishes of the vast majority of Americans.)

1.First, read this page (PDF)
2.Next, copy the info on this page (text file)
3.Send it to your Senators and representatives by copying and pasting the text in the web form you're sent to.

*Note: If their websites are down, that means we're making a difference! Keep refreshing the page until you get through. You can also go through, though we don't endorse this site.


Forward this email to everyone in your address book and tell them to urgently follow these 3 steps TODAY. The more people we have supporting this and contacting their elected leaders, the more likely we can turn our economy around!

Get a list of Dave's media appearances this week.

What is your opinion on this?

Free Ziploc Fall Gift Pack

The first 20,000 to respond will receive a free Ziploc Brand Vacuum Freezer System Starter Kit, plus $14.10 in coupons. So hurry to this site.
