Its the year end rush

Did you guy go to the post office today!? I was there for twenty minutes without making it halfway to the window! Granted they closed at 4 and I showed up at 3:40 but I'd printed my postage at home and am used to a quick drop off.

Well the drop off window was closed so the only recourse to wait. It wasn't until a postal employee went to lock the door at 4pm that I was able to hand it off and head to Staples where the manager greeted me with "Hello ma'am! Back at Staples?"

Free batteries, must be December
Staples has a 10% off any item in their circulars and also on-line this week. Twenty pack of Duracell AA and AAA batteries are $13. Customers can buy 2 a week to be reimbursed as Staples cash in January. I did this last year and ended up with about $100 in Staples cash. Luckily you have six months to spend it


In decluttering news I craigslisted eight of those mirrors from last year. I never made the wall collage and they're heavy! They went to a personal trainer who is going to make a wall for his torturees.

Adios glasses
Then I sold the above glasses (still had their tags post-garage sale) and a glass pot (also garage saled). My roomy pointed I went overboard with all the kitchen sailing last year. I don't feel bad about it though. Everything was purchased cheaply and I was able to see what tools and equipment I enjoy/use. Plus now I'm selling it off on Craigslist for more than I paid so I'm pretty happy :)
