Here is what I have been up too lately!
Organics To You . Anything she doesn't eat she will give to me. I will plan my meals around the produce she gives me and the sale produce I find each week. This way I save money and we try new things all the time. Our meals never get boring and don't break the bank.
Portland Running Store and turned myself over to them. I highly recommend them to anybody looking to find good shoes. Apparently I run on the outsides of my feet and was running with the wrong shoes. Oops. They recommended these pretty shoe's which should help correct my goofy running. Best part is they were half price!!! They are not interested in making the buck first. They catered to what I wanted and made a lifetime shopper for sure. Instead of me spending $130 on shoe's I spent only $65. They rocked! I now live in these and train 3 times a week. My race is in June and if I wanna survive this half marathon I need to train lots.
Earth Mark's Studio which is located in Boulder Colorado. To my surprise when I turned them over they used recycled tire rubber instead of cork. How cool is that? Its like they were made specifically for me. Ahh I am in love. Best part was that they were $2.99 on a green tag which was 50% off. I paid $1.49 for these!
Peaceful Mountain joint rescue for half price at Whole Foods. I expected a lot because at $6.49 half price its a hefty price tag. It is made from certified organic ingredients and promised to help sore and well used joints. I used it for a few weeks and felt no change what so ever. It did make my hands softer though. So again I was on the hunt. I was at my local New Seasons wandering down the aisles when I found the pain relief section. New Season's is great about having a test product for each item they sell. I found this J.R.Watkins Pain Relieving Liniment Spray which is 96.5% Natural. I sprayed it on my wrist (that I have pain in often) and immediately could feel the relief. It cooled and soothed my wrist like nothing I have ever tried. It was $8.49 on sale so I didn't buy it right away and headed on over to Whole Foods to see if I could get it at a better price. Well they didnt sell it and I went home with nothing. For a few hours I would randomly feel cool relief and I knew I better go back and get that stuff. I also use this in my back with great results. If you have pain then you need this stuff. LOVE IT!
I also have been enjoying my new bamboo laptop but will save that review for another day. So what have you been up to? Any new money saving tips to share with us? Feel free to leave a comment and share!
