Coupons and Freebies

My first day with a blog and I already have some cool things to post. Well they are cool for me.

Today during our lunch break my friend/coworker and I walked down to the local Shoppers Drug Mart to browse. While down there we manged to find a couple decent deals to try out our newb couponing skills.

I have only tried my hand in couponing two or three other times – so this really is new to me. I am not really interested in building a stock pile and taking up half my house with stuff I will never use all of. If there is a good deal and it is something we use I might buy a few (guess it depends how long said item lasts) – but I don’t want to store and move this stuff around for the rest of my life. Stuff will always go on sale and there will always be coupons – I really don’t need to fill my house with enough supplies to open a store.

On to today’s find:

1 x U by Kotex Tampons (18’s) @ $2.99 – $1.50 coupon = $1.49
1 x U by Kotex Liners (18’s – trial size) @ 1.99 – $1.50 coupon = $0.49
1 x L’Oréal Studio Hair Paste @ 2.99 – $2.00 coupon from tear pads = $0.99

Subtotal: $2.97
Tax: $0.61
Total: $3.57
Saved: $7.00
66% Savings

I never in all my life would of though I would one day upload a photo of feminine hygiene products on the internet. Kinda weird.

When I came home from work today I had TWO freebies waiting for me. Two incredibly AWESOME freebies might I add. This doesn’t happy often or ever, especially like this. Perfect timing for the new blog. Super excited to try these out.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra 40ml
Tassimo Gevalia Dark House Blend T DISCs (12)

Both of these products came from Facebook offers. The La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra came from their Facebook page – you had to tell them about your sensitive skin and they picked 1000 people to receive the product.

As for the Tassimo Gevalia Dark House Blend T DISCs – you simply had to be the first of so many people to like their Facebook page (and fill out the form) to receive the T DISCs. Pretty sweet – I was expecting one to try not a full package of 12! Super awesome and packaged so nicely.

Looking forward to trying both of these products out!

Lets Do THIS!

I bought this domain name – imonglue.com (incase there was any confusion) – back in 2007. I finally started it as a blog a year after that in 2007. I posted a dozen or so times ending sometime in 2009. I do this every time, I start a blog and give up shortly after. For over two years this website has sat here and collected internet dust. Until now that is…

I am bring imonglue.com back! At least I am going to attempt to anyway.

I did turn off all my old posts except for one. That one post is a hit in google and has over 300 comments. I figured I would leave for those that need to find it. Basically I put contact lens solution in eye, it burned like… well it burned really bad and I blogged about it. Other people make the same mistake, google and find my post. But really, is putting contact lens solution in your eye really a mistake? Seems like the a logical idea to me… anyway enough about that. Read the post for yourself and the comments if you are interested.

So what is this blog going to be… It is going to be more geared towards a personal blog. Though at this point I hope not too personal. I don’t really think the whole world needs to know about the intimate details of my life and if they do I feel this is neither the time nor the place. Although I am sure you will hear plenty of my antics and the stupid things I mange to do on an almost daily basis (at least weekly).

Maybe a random blog is a better description? Random not-too personal blog? A friend and I have recently started trying to learn to coupon (or attempting to) – IN CANADA – there are lots of sites out there to help people so I don’t plan to do that (it is nothing like in the US). But I do plan to share any cool deals I find (I LOVE deals), purchase I make, cool finds – random stuff and whatever I feel like. Cool websites, good food, neat products, nerdy stuff.. Who knows really. I can be pretty random half of the time and can’t seem to keep a blog updated for the life of me so we will see how this goes.

A bit about me… well I am 26 (as of right now) – I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada – I love my 5 year old Boston Terrier with all my heart. I have a wonderful fiancé [recently and it was a TOTAL surprise]. I like to cook, eat, shop and everything in between. I am a “web designer” – I use that term loosely but it best describes what I do, even though it isn’t really what I do. More of a “web coder” who kind of knows how to make graphics – but that just sounds complicated and confusing. I am a geek – nerd – whatever you want to call me. I love most technology. I twitter too often and take too many photos. I love computers – comes with the job. I obviously love to ramble on [get used to it]. If you can’t tell from all the pink – I am a girl, if that matters to anyone.
