My tip today is to remind you all about groupon, there is even a UK version.  You can find all kinds of gifts at discount prices on there. There are gift certificates for local restaurants and entertainment from movies, bowling, golfing, etc. You could also get someone a day at the spa or one of those salt caves. If you have an idea for a gift, please check here- I bet you will get it at a discount

There are also a lot of reduced price photo gift ideas. Everyone loves personalized gifts with photos of their loved ones on them. See you next week.

Thank you all for the purrs and prayers for my brother, Millie.

Penny’s Tips Volume 55

Hi everyone! I am back with more money saving holiday tips for you.

Once again I am forced to dress the part.

I need to give a shout out to Rene at It’s All About the Cats for reminding me of Retail Me Not. It is a great website to get coupon codes for pretty much anything.Mom downloaded two other sites into her computer that automatically search for codes every time she buys something online ( which is a lot). She uses Wikibuy and Honey. Before you pay for your order, they quickly test coupon codes to get you the best deal. Mom never buys anything without a coupon.

I happily provided a fail.

And Emmy did too.

 

Penny’s Tips Volume 54

Hi everyone! I am continuing my series of tips to help you save money this holiday season.

 Mom said I should dress the part.

My tip for you today is to take advantage of free shipping. Amazon prime offers a free trial  so why not try it now and do ll your shopping while you have it.

Many stores also offer free shipping with no minimum at this time of year. If you have to send gifts to friends or family that live far away you should use this to your advantage. Have gifts sent directly from the store. No one will care that they are not wrapped, they still have the box to open.

Penny’s Tips Volume 51

Hi everyone! No, I am not getting married. My mom and dad had their wedding anniversary last week. My mom told me that she put a penny in her shoe for good luck on her wedding day- I guess it worked being that they have been married for 27 years.

There is a saying about having something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a lucky sixpence for your shoe. Back in the olden days when they got married, you couldn’t just go online and order up a sixpence so she used a penny. So my tip is to add a penny or a sixpence to your shoe on your wedding day.

I Give My Cats Aspirin

Hi everyone! Poor Penny is being bumped today. I want to pass some important information along to all of you.

I have always read that aspirin is a no-no for cats so I was shocked when Emmy’s cardiologist prescribed one half of a baby aspirin twice a week. She is also on two heart medicines.

Sammy has a murmur so he went to the same cardiologist for an echocardiogram and was also prescribed the same aspirin regimen. Then I went to the regular vet with Polar Bear. I recently changed all the cats over to this new place because I was unhappy with the care at VCA. Well, this new vet ( new to us, she has been in business over 20 years) recommended the aspirin for him too. Polar Bear has a thyroid problem like Sammy and also has a murmur ( all my hyperthyroid cats have murmurs). This vet gives all her hyperthyroid cats a whole baby aspirin twice a week. I am staying cautious and only doing the half twice a week.

The reason this was prescribed was because hyperthyroid cats with murmurs are more prone to blood clots. I had never heard this before. Has anyone else been told this? I am curious to know. Plus, if you haven’t been told this, I hope you will ask about it if your cat has these conditions. I also plan to ask if all my older cats should be given this like how aspirin is prescribed for older humans.

This is one of the gifts I gave my mom for her birthday. It is a travel mug from Summer’s Zazzle store. My mom is a big fan of Summer.

Penny’s Tips Volume 50

Hi everyone! It is that time of year when Mom tortures us, I mean lovingly dresses us in costumes for Halloween. Last year we were all characters from movies. This year, we are going to be from television shows. There will be a contest to see who can guess all the shows.

Do you have your costume yet? I have some ideas if you don’t. They all have a penny in them.

1. Penny from Big Bang Theory- just toss on a blonde wig.

2. Pennywise the Clown from It- Chewy has a costume available for that

3. Penny Dreadful- Go as a character from that show- I can’t believe anyone would put the word dreadful after my name though.

4. Coin- go as a real penny. Just be careful because everyone will try to pick you up for good luck.

5. Henny Penny- Dress as a chicken and run around telling everyone the sky is falling.

OK, that is all I’ve got- can you think of any pennies I missed?

Penny’s Tips Volume 49

Hi everyone! The Jewish day of atonement, Yom Kippur begins at sundown so I thought I would tell you a Jewish story. Don’t worry , there is a penny in it.

It is titled, The Rusty Penny by Tuvia Bolton .Many years ago ( the 17 or 1800’s), a rabbi was collecting money to help some Jewish prisoners. He went around with a group and asked everyone to donate. He went to a so-called miser’s home and asked him for a donation. The man gave him a rusty old penny which was considered an insult, but he accepted it and said thank you. A few minutes later, the miser offered him a lot more money which he also graciously accepted. Then the miser offered the entire amount needed. The rabbi later explained the man was not a miser, he had just never had the joy of giving because everyone else threw the rusty penny back in his face.

I may not have explained it that well, you can read the story by clicking here.

The point is, it is good to give and once you do, you will always want to. I am sure that is true, but I am s till not giving away the Kick Stick.
