my petty vents

1) Our coffee pot crapped out yesterday.  When I poured the water in the back, it gushed out from underneath.  It was a cheap one anyway, but we just got it last June (2010).  I'd love suggestions if you love your coffee pot.  We are looking to get a better quality one this time, so we're willing to spend what it takes.  We do not want a single cup one, though.

2) We have been spending WAY too much money lately.  We go through these phases where we just bleed money for no reason:  eating out, silly stops at the grocery store, etc.

3) I got the old navy email this morning about their sweaters.  I looked at the website and there are like 7 sweaters that I like.  Because of #2 above, I need to go without. :(

TTC #2 for a million years: SA normal, CD 23 bloodwork shows nothing amiss, ovulation detected. Next step: ? maybe CD3 bloodwork to check eggs? All out of pocket, so limited IF tests/treatments.

Re: my petty vents

  • sucky!  Although as far as shopping goes, I'm convinced it can fix anything - online shopping is particularly good at curing colds ;)
  • 1. I highly recommend a french press. You can get multi cup ones and they're ahmazing. I have 2 from the Bodum Chambord line and they're so great. We've had one for about 3 years and the other for about 2 years and they've held up really well. You can even make loose leaf teas in them.

    2. I feel your pain. This is us right now too. 

    3. I feel your pain some more. I still want to get some black booties, but need to out the kibosh on shopping because of #2.

    ebates is awesome....i discovered it...maybe 3 months ago? i've gotten about 40 bucks back in "rebates" through just regular online shopping....and this is even when i forget to use ebates half the time... you just go to ebates....search your store..click, then shop normally. it's straight up cash too. not credit or anything.... sign up through my referral..and usually there's bonuses on both ends..i think right now you get free $10 for signing up? i'm not sure..... referral link here.

    cool!

  • Okay, you've convinced me.  I'm going to start some Christmas shopping.  Hopefully that will alleviate my shopping desire, and not cost us anything (well, we have $ saved, so not any of our regular $).

  • BabyAustin - We have the same Cuisinart coffee maker as KB, and I'd highly, highly recommend it! It's a bit more of an investment, but they hold up really well. I also get compliments on how good of coffee it makes when we have people over!

    Jenn - thanks for the ebates referral! I had no idea about that, but I'm jumping on board. You made my day!

    woo! let me know if you have any questions---i love-love-love ebates! there are SO many major stores that they work with, that i forget lots of time when i do my "regular" online shopping. the biggest ticket ones are expedia, orbitz, and lots of major airlines. your cash-back builds up FAST with those ones... enjoy!
