Happy Friday My Loves! This has been a really busy week for me – and I’ve got a full lid today as well. So I’ll be really happy when tomorrow comes and I’m off to Tallahassee to see my Seminoles play. College Football saturdays are the best – no matter who you cheer for!
I’ve been meaning to post about the app – Hukkster. Anybody out there using it? Its a coupon/money saving site where you can sign up for alerts when the items you identify go on sale. There’s a computer based application you can register for as well as iPad and iPhone versions you can download for free from the iTunes App store. I’ve used apps like this in the past but they never seem to work correctly; meaning I sign up and then tag/flag/log items I want to be alerted to when they go on sale but then I never hear anything! I guess that might mean the items I covet never go on sale (figures!) or that I’ve done something wrong or the tracking and notification doesn’t work 100% of the time. Hukkster, however, seems to be getting good press and reviews. I’ve seen it mentioned in several places this year so I thought I might give it a try. Lord knows with the all the gifts I’m buying some sale price alerts would make my day!
And to totally switch gears – here’s something I read this week and loved! Its the reverse of Hukkster if you will… From Dave Romanelli who I mentioned on the blog before. Love him! Paying with attention – its a beautiful idea really. Time and attention are precious commodities for sure. If we truly want to give someone on our list a special gift from the heart – maybe all we have to do is “gift” them with our love and attention.

And lastly- check out these neat portion controlled baggies I found at Wal-Mart! There are fantastic for measuring out snacks – especially things like nuts and trail mix which are frankly addictive and (although they can be very healthy) high in calories. It was very exciting to find this little gem at Wal-Mart. Isn’t everyone uber-excited about baggies with serving size measurements on the outside? I’m such an easy girl to please yeah right!
