Company Emails: Getting on those lists...

A few months ago, I went through my email and purged.  Really purged all the extra emails that I'd forgotten to delete at the time.  One of the problems is getting off of all those advertising lists.  Ugh!  They clog up my email right and left!  I love Gmail's new system that separates the "promotion" emails from the real ones.  So, why join new lists?  Well, every once in a while I find a new one that's helpful to get...

Waffle Cones Wednesdays

On Wednesday night, my husband came home and wanted to take us all out for a treat after dinner.  We settled on TCBY.  I'm so glad we did!  The TCBY near us has Waffle Cone Wednesdays so small waffle cones are only $1.58.  It was such a blessing because it cost $7 for all of us to get ice cream instead of $16 that I expected!  What a fun blessing! (and our stomachs weren't heavy the way they usually are after having ice cream cones...)

I found out that you can subscribe to specials from your local store (since it's a franchise) on the TCBY website.  Yay!

#2 Life is Good

For my husband's birthday, I was at a complete loss about what to get him.  He also isn't big on birthdays, so it makes it challenging to figure out what to do.  This year I found something.  My husband and I love Life is Good hats and t-shirts.  There is something implied in the statement "Like what you do. Do what you like." that doesn't quite sit with me.  But, I overlook that and just enjoy the simple designs on the shirts and hats.  They fit us.

Anyways, I discovered that you can get free shipping on the Life is Good Website for any size order, which is great.  When I googled "promotion code" and "life is good", I discovered that if you subscribe to the newsletter, you get an online coupon code for 15% off your first order.  I also found a code for 20% off hats on the same site (retail me not).  Yay!  I saved $10 between the two codes--which did work together.

The lesson I learned?
Every once in a while, it's worth subscribing to another list.
As long as I unsubscribe to another one...
