So, I have a pretty good excuse for missing last week (don't I always?). First, there was the stress of making my first Thanksgiving dinner for my family, then being called to be the new Primary secretary (right at the end of the year when everything has to be created and updated) and then there was the almost brain aneurysm.
Around midnight, my husband came downstairs, white as a sheet, telling me he had the worst headache of his entire life. He was in so much pain that he started vomiting and said his neck felt really stiff. I did an internet search, and if you put in those symptoms, you will see that while they could be indicative of a great many things, they could be a brain aneurysm.
I wasn't taking any chances (especially when all those online doctors said if those were your symptoms you should rush to the ER ASAP) so we woke up all the children, bundled them up and went to the hospital. Not knowing how long it would last, I stuck around in the waiting room. I had also suffered under the delusion that my children might be tired enough to fall asleep. Nope. They were all up for two hours until I texted my husband to find out what was going on, and he'd told me that they'd done a CT and a spinal tap and needed to wait for the results - he had no idea how long he'd be. I took the kids back home, where my husband woke me up at 4:00 a.m. to go back and get him.
All the tests were normal, he's fine. And he hasn't had any symptoms like that since.
But on to the real reason you stopped to read this post - since I'm on a two-hour time difference from our MST readers, I wanted to let you know (if you didn't know already) that your local Smith's is (probably) having a fantastic one-day sale today.

In addition to it being 50% off, there's also a ton of coupons out there that you can use to save even more money.

- This has a $1.00 off any Kellogg or Keebler, and the coupon says "at Save-A-Lot," but it is a manufacturer's coupon, which means any store SHOULD take it. You can tell by looking at the UPC code - a manufacturer's coupon will always start with a 5.
REMEMBER - YOU CAN PRINT EACH COUPON *TWICE* FROM YOUR COMPUTER.
And if you normally clip Sunday paper coupons, you may want to check and see if you have anything that could be used for the sale.
And, if you haven't already, sign up your Smith's card at these sites:ShortcutsCellfireP&G eSAVERSoft Coin
I also thought I'd make mention of a couple of other deals Smith's is currently running that have printable or electronic coupons (and these deals will last until Tuesday, 12/8/09):
$2 Healthy Choice or Marie Callendar Entrees$1 Healthy Choice coupon here .75 Marie Callendar coupon here

Smith's also has a lot of things on sale 5 for $5 - Chef Boyardee, Hunt's, Manwich, (and Reddi-Wip for $2). There is a site that has coupons that would allow you to get a lot of those things for .50 each. To get them you have to play this game
, and it will only let you print out one coupon at a time, so it's time consuming. And as a side note - you do NOT have to buy five of an item to get the deal - they're all $1.00 each on sale (marketing ploy).
I made up this list for my mom (and it doesn't include any of the Sunday type coupons that would make lots more deals - I thought this would be a good starting off point for someone who just wanted to print and go).
If anyone makes use of it - please let me know. I'd love to know how it turns out for you!
