Penny’s Tips Volume 58

Hi everyone! I have my best tip yet for you today. I actually didn’t come up with this one, but I am happy to spread the word.

PennyFix is a petition started in the USA.  The idea is that every can of cat food would cost one little cent extra and all that money would go to spay/neuter programs. I think everyone can afford that extra penny and it will do so much good. To read more about it and/or to sign the petition, click here.

And here is my special New Year’s Eve gown. Mom got it on clearance at Petsmart for $3.75. One can still look gorgeous on a budget.

The top is black velvet and the skirt is white with sequins and a gold bow.This is a small and it fits perfectly.

Christmas Eve

Hi everyone! Sorry this post is so late. We had our Christmas Eve party a day early so I am way behind on visiting blogs- I will get to them all today.

Wishing you all a nice Christmas Eve. We will be back tomorrow with photos of us with Santa.

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse ( well, maybe a mouse)

Penny’s Tips Volume 57

Hi everyone! I bet a lot of you bake at the holidays. These tips are for you.

Look at all this butter mom bought for only $1.99 a pound. She actually had more, but used a lot for baking.She got it at a grocery store called Aldi. If there is one near you, you should check it out. It is very plain inside and you have to bring your own bags and do the bagging yourself, but it is worth it for the savings. Mom got a dozen eggs for 69 cents, a half gallon of milk for 75 cents and 5 pounds of flour for $1.99. I checked on google and Aldi is in 35 states so I am sorry if there is not one in your state because you are missing out.

They also have an aisle of gift items including sweaters for pets. Mom scored this one for me for $4.99.

It is pretty cute. That is not a hole, it is for a leash to go through.

Now I have to go back to taking care of Rosie. Not sure why I got stuck with her, but she is pretty nice. She is a little nosey though, last night she opened all the kitchen cabinets and knocked a mug out of one- good thing it didn’t break.

Penny’s Tips Volume 56

Hi everyone! I am back with more money saving tips for the holiday season. Do you like my dress?

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.

Cats’ Letters to Santa -Part 1

Hi everyone! Thank you for all the purrs and prayers for Millie, they are greatly appreciated.

Here is part 1 ( of 3) of the cats’ letters to Santa. They re not clear to read in the photos so you can read them under each photo.

Emmy: Dear Santa, I think you should give my book to every child ages 3-7. I can give you a wholesale deal. Thank you, Emmy

Prancie: Dear Santa, Just like Emmy, I think all kids ages 3-7 need my book. I can give you wholesale pricing and free shipping to The North Pole. Thank you, Prancie

Penny: Dear Santa, Please make my brother Millie better. He is my best friend and the only cat I like here. Thank you, Penny

Trouble: Dear Santa,  I need a new froggy. Mine doesn’t croak anymore. Thank you, Trouble

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.

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

First off, I am thankful to have my blog back. I updated a plug-in on wordpress and lost everything. Has that happened to any of you? Being that I don’t know how to do technical things, I had to pay GoDaddy $80 to fix it. It was worth it though to have everything back.Plus I can have 2 more problems within a month included in the price.

Penny is thankful that her friend Amarula ( a fellow tortie) and family at Hairballs and Hissy Fits sent her a Canadian penny. They are no longer in circulation and are hard to come by. They also sent some treats and nip which Penny (reluctantly) shared with her siblings.

And Prancie and I are thankful that her book is being reviewed today on Christmas Tree  Lane ( being that it is Christmas themed). It is a wonderful blog of all things Christmas.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into _____________________ on Thanksgiving.
 

2. I will pass on ___________________ on Thanksgiving.

3. I wish _________ was served at holiday gatherings

4. I will always be thankful for _________.

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 53

Hi everyone! Last week I started my series of how to save pennies ( and dollars) this Christmas/Hanukkah season.

My tip this week is to shop at online auctions. There are a lot of them this time of year and many also help a good cause. For example,  our friend, Andrea of Celestial Kitties there is one going right now to support Winnie’s Wish. Mom donated her two children’s books and there are lots of cat themed items like jewelry and home decor.To visit click here.
