Etc. etc.

31 May

Thanks for being loyal readers! I apologize that I haven’t been posting as much lately. I just haven’t been motivated to blog about cheap stuff lately. I’ve actually been thinking about expanding what I say here beyond financially-related things. It may not exactly go with the cutecheapstuff name, but whatever – it’s my blog! 🙂

But that won’t be happening yet, as I’m about to head off on a vacation to….. (drumroll)…. Hawaii! I’m very excited, as I’ve been dying to visit for a long time, and it’s finally happening.

For the next week, I won’t be posting. But I’m hoping that when I return and get settled in, I’ll feel bloggy again.

(Sorry to be one of those people who talks about how they don’t post on their blog and life is so busy, blah blah blah. My life isn’t really that busy – I’m just lazy!)

Josh Ritter love

5 May

Josh Ritter has a new album out! And you can get it at a discount price! For a limited time, it’s $7.99 at Amazon.

If you’ve never listened to Mr. Ritter, you’re missing out. But there’s hope for you yet – you can download “Rattling Locks” for free. What have you got to lose? He’s a good artist and a nice guy. I met him very briefly one time and he was the nicest person ever. Let’s support the nice people of the world!

Oh yes, you May

1 May

It’s May! This year is going by sooooo fast. I can’t believe it.

I already own this one. Ain't no shame...
