Welcome to my new blog. What is this about, you may ask? It is about the things I think about. I have been told time and time again that people like my facebook status updates (or statii, as I like to call them) so I should write more. So how do you start a blog? No idea. But since this is a beginning and 6 days before my birthday, I will focus on that. This is about my birthday quest, to get as much free stuff as possible. Preferably stuff I want. So I posted on facebook asking for people to tell me places to go to get stuff. This isn't about the $$$ (although the fact that I haven't gotten a paycheck since August does make getting free stuff a little more exciting-by the way, my first pay day is-my birthday!!!!). It's about just feeling like my birthday is as awesome as possible. Think of how many people will wish me well that day! and think of all the calories I won't have to feel guilty about because everyone knows that calories don't count on your birthday! I didn't necessarily want food by the way, it just seems to be the most available.
So, today I spent at least an hour (no one said this will be easy) signing up for stuff. OK, so I actually bought something from Sephora to qualify for my birthday gift but I needed it anyway. I did realize though that a lot of "free stuff" was going to be given to me after I purchasd something else. I'm like XXXX sorry, that doesn't count. I may do a few of those but will have to be careful. I spend enough the rest of the year so they could give me a break and just give me something free on this one day! I also realized that some of the coupons are for the next two weeks (thank you Cold Stone Creamery!) so I can really spread my birthday celebrations out. This should help me with the time factor, since I do have work that day. It should also cut down on the threat of a stomach ache since I mostly keep finding food coupons.
Here is where I have signed up:
Melting Pot (but that website was a pain)
Buca Di Beppo's
Vera Bradley (who I don't even like)
Sephora (who I love!!!)
Joe's Crab Shack (when you sign up, they say you now have crabs)
to be continued....
