Guess what? Lori and I are together for a few hours this rainy MN afternoon! She and Steve are in town this weekend for a wedding and we are squeezing in a blog strategy session here on Grand Avenue in St. Paul! Thanks Caribou FREE Wi-Fi!
We have to give a shout-out to my co-worker, Keri, for giving me a Caribou coupon for buy-one, get-one free (BOGO!) drinks! And a hint for another Keri-Ethne antic: pole dancing classes - stay posted!
|BFF's - Lori's dressed up for the wedding -
check out her birthday pearls!
So I picked Lori up at her $40 priceline.com downtown St. Paul Hilton Garden Inn hotel this morning, and as we cruised Summit Ave. on the way to Caribou on Grand, Lori spotted a "Sale in Alley" sign in front of one of the monster-size Summit homes. We knew this sale would = quality finds. Obviously these WOMs stopped.
|Check out the giant houses!
Surprisingly, there weren't as many upper-crust deals as we expected, but Lori did snag a Robomaid sweeper machine for 3 clams - we'll do anything to get out of cleaning!! She will blog about this once she's tried it out. (PS, Lori just hired a college student to clean her and Steve's house. WOMs need to prioritize - we can't do everything!)
|Looks a little sketchy to me - but worth a try for $3!
|Writing this post!
-Reusable coffee sleeve
-Bulk prices compared to grocery store prices
-Homemade pillow pals
-Lots of Riot Girls tales
|This cutie is $5.99 - ours will be FREE!
Also, Lori is giving me a few tips for better couponing skills. She has her new coupon binder (which we discussed will be getting a make-over soon) to show off. BIG FYI: We plan to put on some FREE couponing classes here in the Cities and some ND towns as well - so watch for our announcements on dates/times/places!!!
|It's like a book of money!
