Things I will never purchase

1. pre-moistened toilet paper
2. pre-cooked bacon ... that you warm up in the microwave
3. do-it-yourself microdermabrasion a.k.a facial sandblaster
4. cellulite cream (i hav enuf thnx!)
5. prepaid cremation

Where did I come up with that last one? I got some junk mail urging me to buy now or enter my name in their monthly drawing. They were even thoughtful enough to suggest that if I had already taken care of my burial expenses I could pass along the savings to a friend. Only one lucky winner per month but they didn't limit the amount of times you could win. I wonder if I could get my whole family taken care of?

This is almost as bad as Costco selling coffins (not in SLO or Smra). If you ever have to buy a sixpack of coffins my heart goes out to you.

Don't get me wrong, I am a coupon shopper, I do my best to save every penny I can but I don't think I would ever go with the cheapest:

1.) lasic eye surgery
2.) safety harness
3.) professional daycare
4.) bike helmet
5.) survival guide

jacquelyn, i got your message yesterday and tried calling you back several times. the phone just rang and there wasn't an answering machine. sorry we missed you last night. it was a fun time. have fun this weekend. and thanks for the heads up regarding prepaid cremation. thanks for not passing along the savings!

Actually, prepaid cremation is a really good idea (not that I'm necesarily going to jump on it right now)...but families are often left with the huge financial burden of paying for a loved one's funeral...even if you go as simple as being cremated, it's still at least $1100! And let's not even get started on death taxes!

well, jeannett, I think I still have the coupon ... you can't imagine how exciting they made the whole thing sound like it was something to look forward to! Maybe I need to update my life insurance policy ...

i've found that the cottonelle fresh wipes are great for toddlers, a lot cheaper than the "kandoo" brand.

jeannett isn't it crazy how expensive death is?! i think maybe kevin's in the wrong business!
