Go ME!

Next week is Snow White's spring break. My family is heading off to New York City for a whirlwind week of touring colleges, eating dinner with good friends (more on that later.....Mental P Mama and Daryl will be there. Jealous??), enjoying an opera at The Met, and soaking up all of the sights and sounds of the city. Quite a change for these country bumpkins who typically head for the beach!!

I made the arrangements for our trip about six weeks ago. Today, I was able to cash in credit card miles and get a $655.00 travel reimbursement!!! The beauty of it is that I pay my credit card off every month, so this was FREE MONEY!! Icing on the cake...

Although not quite as impressive, I have saved enough receipts to get a $20.00 rebate at my local grocery store. They have a promotion once or twice a year, and all you have to do is save your receipts ($50.00 or more) for six of the eight promotion weeks. You take the receipts to Customer Service, and they give you a $20.00 voucher. Again, FREE MONEY!!!

Now it's your turn. Tell me what you do to save, or to get FREE MONEY!

You're just scarfing up those perks! Have a wonderful time in NY! Don't go bananas with that money...college tuition isn't anything to sneeze at.

I love free money! Can you say TWO rooms at the Marriot Grand Dunes in Myrtle Beach for FREE! Yea baby...

I'm jealous you are going to the city, but I'll be thinking about you at the beach. Be sure to take your laptop and blog while you're gone. There will be way too much to talk about when you get home.

I want an oompah loompah.

And I also want dinner with Mental Mamma and Daryl, but I guess I'll have to wait until July.

Very, very jealous, but enjoy yourself, be safe and have fun. Please have one glass of wine for me.

Typo - I meant one bottle.

I am so jealous!! Well, maybe not so jealous about the opera but really jealous about the rest of that trip.

I get my free money every Friday just one small catch. I have to work like a damn dog EVERY DAY!
