Welcome Blog Hoppers -
 
Good Morning, Happy Friday, Payday (once a month for us gov workers)! I'm excited for the Rays to kick Yankee ass in the sold out 3 game series, which means more free pizza if they get 10 strikeouts each game.
 
Leave a comment and I'll come check out your blog too!

Twitter Hop

Welcome to Frugalapolis if you're finding me from the latest Twitter Hop Thursday, hosted by Simply StacieThe King's Court IV, Little Yaya'sReview Retreat and Moms Wear Your Tees.  Join by clicking on any of the hosts and add your twitter handle to the list, you'll get a bunch more followers!
 
Anyway, here are some tidbits for the week of shopping - there will be three coupon inserts (RP, SS, P&G) in the paper this weekend, so you'll probably want to get at least two to go with those BOGO sales.
 
Also there is an ongoing sale this week at Target where you get 10 SOBE water for $1 each, use the Target coupon printable from their website for $0.50 off each, so you pay $5 and get a $5 Target Gift Card, so in the end they are kinda free.

The Versatile Blogger

A big THANK YOU to The Trials of Big J and Little J who awarded me with the "Versatile Blogger" Award! Visit her fun blog HERE.
Part of the responsibility of accepting an award is to share the love - 
The rules for " The Versatile Blogger" award are:
1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.
( Rules are flexible, in case you're not good with rules!)

So here are seven interesting things to know about me:
  1. My name is Marie.
  2. I grew up in the same house my whole life in a suburb of Minneapolis, MN. At the end of our street was a lot of property that had fields, trees, a fossil creek and later on, nice walking paths. We called this "General Mills" because it was owned by GM and was adjacent to one of their manufacturing plants and you could smell Trix and other cereals in the air when it was being manufactured. Many of the workers would walk on the paths during their breaks in their white lab coats. We played in the fields all the time and walked our dog there almost every day.
  3. I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science in Food Science. My first job was a temp job at Pillsbury's Research and Development Laboratories working for $4 an hour. Within a couple months one of the scientists hired me as a food technologist. It was the best job I ever had; making cookies, pizza, popcorn, salsa, meals, brownies, cookies, toaster strudels and biscuits. I had to buy a chest freezer to keep all the giveaway products from the pilot plant tests. Everyone there was a stockpiler and hoarder, trading cookie dough for pizza.
  4. I worked as a Food Technologist, and later as a Food Scientist for Pillsbury and then Sandoz Nutrition for many years. Then I met my DH and we moved to Florida, and I continued work in the food industry, but to work on the flip side of the fence for the ingredient suppliers.
  5. After 911, jobs in the manufacturing industry were getting less stable. Companies were failing and getting bought out and merging. I was laid off from several jobs in the ingredient and pharmaceutical industry and decided to get out and into something more stable. Thus the boring government job I have worked for many years, and will probably retire here. I work for Child Support Enforcement as a Government Analyst. I just analyze cases and make lists for staff to close or work cases, I also do some process improvement work as I am a certified quality analyst too. Dull.
  6. I've been with DH for twenty two years, and he's the life of my life. We both grew up in MN and moved to FL when we were young enough to enjoy all it has to offer. My parents and our families still live in MN and no one will probably ever move. That's just the way Minnesotans are. They love it there.
  7. I started this blog to share frugal stuff with people who may be interested. I have another personal blog but everyone up North doesn't really care how much I save at Publix because they don't have Publix up there.
Now for the drum roll and who I would like to share the love with. I follow many blogs that entertain or teach me things everyday. I'm going to list some great blogs that don't necessarily have to do with being frugal, but are worth the read. I would like to pass the Versatile Blogger Award to these blogs, check them out-
  1. The Thrifty Little Blog
  2. Maximum Chaos
  3. Moneyapolis
  4. Thrifty Florida Mamma
  5. Frugal For Life
  6. Four Hats and Frugal
  7. Frugal Racing Fan Mommy
  8. The Coupon Momma
  9. Frugal Dr. Mom
  10. Becoming Minimalist
  11. The Obnoxious SAHM
  12. Frugal Hacks
  13. Frugal Floridian
  14. Blogger Chix Designs
So Thanks again for visiting, and please take a minute to visit them too.

Hi this is my first time trying to post the MckLinky for the blog hop to the blog via email. I'm blocked from Blogger at work and need to try to figure this out. So if its a bunch of bahooey, just leave a comment and I'm work on it from home tonight on a normal computer that doesn't the evil government restraints.
