    Thanks so much for the advice on the printer. My shopping starts in earnest tomorrow when I will have some time to shop. I knew that I could count on our wonderful bloggers!

    ThomasG and Mothar, thanks so much for your help with the tires. I've spent a few days looking around, and at Thomas' suggestion, called the dealer to see what they could do. Turns out they also had a $100 coupon on their website for parts, so I'm out the door for $570 including tax for 4 quality new truck tires. Woohoo! So much better than the $900 I've been seeing all week.

    Mothar, I'm glad I could make you smile with my crazy posts. :)

    Finally, while it would be nice to say I'm all about being proactive and stuff about my health, you have to remember this is the girl whose favorite food is homemade M&C and doesn't hesitate to indulge when the craving strikes. It was really all about the $90 in giftcards. I figure we can manage a few short minutes of discomfort for $90!

    My insurance company actually sent me a $75.00 gift card for getting my annual physical this year. Hope continue that offer for next year. I had a great shopping trip to Khols and earn points also. On the other hand, still waiting for one of the beer rebates. When I checked on-line, it states it has been mailed but have not received it yet.

    ThomasG - that really is impressive! Just goes to show that it never hurts to ask for a better price.

    Jdouglas - You basically get a 2 for 1 deal - free mammogram and $45 each. Sounds like a great offer to me. Totally worth the surprising amount of discomfort involved in the process. lol

    WOW, ThomasG, I had no idea one could price match at a Honda dealership. Good work!

    jdouglas13 - We needed tires earlier this year on our 2012 Honda . I researched what would be best brand, tread, etc for the amount of driving we do . I asked and got the dealership service department to "price match" the best deal I found and I used coupons from the dealership's website to get a deal on all the extras !( balancing , alignment,etc .) .

    Hi jdouglas, I can't resist your topics, lol...anyway, I buy my tires online from tirerack.com. I always go by reviews a bit, and if memory serves me right, you can have it shipped right to a garage near you where they can install them for about 15 a tire. Better prices and better choices than the local places I think. Anyway, good luck

    Jdouglas- lol! That's pretty awesome on the $90. My first response was... RUN (as you can tell, mammograms are right up their with root canals and DMV appointments). But, love that you're being proactive about your health, and getting paid for it :-)

    Love when Zoya Nail Polish does their yearly nail polish exchange where you send back your old polish (any brand), and get 50% off plus free shipping on their 8-free nail polish (when you buy 6, code HAPPY). If you haven't tried Zoya- they are awesome. And one of my favorite nail polish brands. Shocking to me how many other companies out there still add such horrible ingredients to their polishes (see the link for more details). http://www.zoya.com/content/category/Zoya-Nail-Polish-Exchange-Healthier-is-Happier.html
