Finals are Coming Up, Are you Ready?

Finals are coming up!!!  So you probably don't have time to shop.... You should be studying.  I hope you used the long weekend to organize your outlines.  Start working on condensing those outlines and once you are done begin doing practice exams.  Go over them with your professor.  Pay attention in class because anything your professor tends to focus on or spend a lot of time emphasizing will most likely appear on the exam!

Good luck!

It would also make a lovely wedding gift.  What's more, Kitchenaid is currently offering a $30 cash back rebate plus a free magazine subscription to Food & Wine Magazine or Travel & Leisure Magazine.  I looked on the fine print and you can forgo the subscription and get a $12 refund instead! You just have to make a copy of the rebate form and send it to a different address.  So that means you can save a ton of dinero on this mixer.   If you don't have a Costco membership, you get the KitchenAid Mixer from Target or Amazon.

Do you like to blog? Do you like to travel?  If you are like me and answer yes to both questions, then you might be interested in an plan in the works.  Japan is proposing a plan to offer 10,000 free round-trip tickets to those willing to promote their travels on their blog. Travels to Japan has drastically dropped over the last year and this campaign is an attempt to boost tourism.

Only 25 days until Black Friday!

I love Black Friday so I am excited that it is only 25 days away!  Get ready for some great deals online and in stores! I just found out that some stores like Macy's and Target will be starting their sales at midnight on the 26th rather than at 4am. Some online retailer's like Amazon will have deals all month long, so make sure to shop Amazon's Holiday Countdown Store!
