The first mix since moving to NC! I find that with a combination of moving, being without internet for a month, being without a home for three weeks, and getting settled, my blog reading has seriously declined. Who would have thunk it?? So my links may be a bit sparse for the next few weeks until I’ve gotten myself back up to speed.
Modern Day Etiquette Podcast
This is what I’m listening to right this very moment. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to get into podcasts, but I’m seriously loving them recently. Instead of just listening to music or the tv in the background while I’m working (be it cleaning, folding laundry, or actually working, ha) I find a good podcast to be the perfect companion.
I have been following the Homefries website for the Simple Mom podcasts, but today this episode by Joy the Baker caught my attention and I thought the subject was great. All about etiquette in the modern world-do you friend people that you just met on Facebook? What do you do when people unfollow you on Twitter? Interesting topic.
I’m blaming this one on my sister in law. After I saw her “Like” ModCloth on Facebook, I just had to check out the website. Becka has great taste, what can I say? The clothes, accessories, and home extras are beautiful, reasonably priced, and timeless. I love the clean modest look that doesn’t veer into dowdy. And who could resist this set of elephant salt and pepper shakers? I feel like I could spend all day on the site, adding things to my wish list. Sigh.
The Krazy Coupon Lady
With my recent move, we are now in a larger area with more stores, deals, sales, and coupons. I’m taking full advantage of this money saving opportunity! But matching the coupons…to the sales…to the rebates…it can all get very tiring. And more importantly, time consuming. I’ve started using this website to check out the weekly deals for my local stores, which really eliminates most of the work I have to actually do. You merely check the site for the post about the store you want to visit, clip/print/grab the coupons you need, and hop in the car. Easy peasy. (Psst…they also have a book.)
