My New Ubokia Marketplace!

Comments Off on My New Ubokia Marketplace!

I don’t know about you guys, but my experiences on some of the other popular auction and marketplace websites have been a total FAIL. I won’t name them, but one of them starts with an “e” and another ends with “list.” You just never know what you’re going to get with those places because you […]

Ugh. I have purchased a few […]

Comments Off on A Great Snack for a Good Cause

Yum! We love the Breakfast on the Go! snacks. I like the ones with dried fruit in them, and the kids like the ones with chocolate in them. šŸ™‚ These things are so perfect for traveling. They don’t weigh you down like heavier snacks and fast foods do, either. One of these little packets with […]

They Have a Word For People Like Me: Sucker!!

July 29, 2011


Maybe it’s in my face– that “look” that tells the street hawkers that I’m an easy one. Or maybe it’s in my demeanor, the way I walk that perhaps oozes motherly gullibility. Or maybe it’s my Upstate New York accent- we’re all hicks up here, lol. Whatever it is, I am a MAGNET for street […]

I haven’t done it very often because I haven’t had very large balances on my cards… but I’m still paying for that kitchen renovation, and the lovely introductory APR rate […]
