I’M BA-ACK!

August 9, 2008 at 12:25 pm (CALENDAR, IDEAS) (, , )

Well {sigh} I had to come home and as much as I have tried to remember every detail, they are fading memories already. I actually need a week in Bali to get over my holiday, but Hamish just wasn’t amenable to that idea!

Just a quick note to let you know we are back on deck for Enrichment Night and Activities. Preparations are well in hand for ‘SUPER SATURDAY’….an extravaganza of Christmas gift ideas that you can make on the day. Stay tuned for further details and costs.

And don’t forget that next Saturday morning the 16th August at 8.30 AM is the Relief Society Breakfast. Come along and enjoy some breakfast you didn’t cook yourself! Also some guest speakers will be in attendance and plenty of good company. And remember; latecomers will miss out on the maple syrup!

SHOPPING SPECIALS ON LINE

Grocery Bag
Well sisters, in my zeal after so much good publicity, I thought I should add a few more entries to this blog! (I now have to live up to expectations…so hard! But thanks for all the good feedback!) Anyway, I thought I would try and write a few articles about what affects us all, and first cab off the rank is grocery prices. Did you know you can go on-line to an interactive catalogue for the Woolworth’s store closest to you?

http://www.woolworths.com.au/weeklyspecials/
IGA have one too.

http://www.iga.net.au

Please rest assured I have no shares in either of these companies, (unfortunately!) but for those of you who like to shop the specials for storage purposes, these links are a great way to check out what’s on sale, where, without the use of any fuel! (Except coal fired power generators, but we won’t go there!!)

Of course we have all heard the same old adages, usually from our mothers, about not shopping when hungry, and don’t forget that to have kids with you at the checkout is wallet suicide…(leave them home with grandma), buy the specials, have an actual list and don’t deviate from it and last but not least, check out

www.choice.com.au

before you make any big purchases! (Often they have grocery articles as well as all the big ticket electronic heads up!)
And remember, before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.
