Freebies & Good Fortune
In the same mailing was a check from Staples 'frequent buyer rewards program' for $56. good toward anything at their site or in stores. I didn't think I purchased that much, but the network router, document shredder, stick-drives, and other smaller items added up, I suppose. Now I have to figure out what to purchase with this windfall as the check is only good through 8/31/2012. I am sure I will think of something.
Checking email this evening, I found a 'special purchase' certificate (read - coupon) for buy-one-get-one-free at Van Heusen. This is where I purchase most of my clothes for work and I can certainly use a new pair of slacks, or two!!!
Also in email was a gift certificate from Sony for $25. off any purchase. I cannot think of anything I need from Sony these days. Absolutely nothing. Blu-ray, Blu-ray, everyone says I ought to buy a Blu-ray player. Why? I am happy with the DVD player I have now. Unfortunately, these certificates are non-transferable, so it will go unused.
Hey, if only I would receive notification that a check from the Social Security Administration has been deposited to my bank account, I would be thrilled beyond measure. Alas, 2 more weeks before I am "scheduled" to receive my first check. Not holding my breath.
I. Make. Too. Much. Money. Or, so they tell me over and over and over...
And so it goes.
