SAVE ON TRAVEL
Cheapair.com did a study where they looked at millions of rates/flights and determined that to save 10% or more on domestic airline tickets, they would need to be purchased at least 70 days in advance. Farecompare.com states that buying your tickets on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturdays are the most economical. Don't forget to sign up with apps like Hipmunk or Hopper to get email alerts on cheaper rates too.
J. Wellington Wimpy, aka Wimpy from the Popeye comic strip/cartoon was something of a con artist, and he loved hamburgers. (If you've been visiting this blog, you know I have to have my cheeseburgers!)
In 1931 he would visit a diner, ask the chef to cook him up a hamburger, and he would pay for it on Thursday. In 1932, the phrase was changed up a little to say that "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today." Of course, Wimpy never bothered to show up on Tuesday to pay his debt, thoroughly stressing out the owner of the diner. That phrase became so popular, that it showed up in other comedy programs like Seinfeld, The Drew Carey Show and the Office. I wonder if I can go into Red Robin and try that?!(lol)

SAVE YOUR CASH
This time of year, we're starting to order more stuff online, but there a lot of clever scam artists waiting to get our hard earned moola. If you've been making purchases from eBay or Amazon, and a buyer asks you to pay differently than you've been doing - stop! Fake sellers may tell you to pay with a money order, gift cards, or to click on a special link. Paying this way can't be tracked by Amazon and eBay, and in the event of a scam, there's no way to to get your money back.

Back on February 14, I posted about Gaslighting. If you're someone who's ever been treated in this manner, you won't ever forget those feeling of ineptness, insecurity, loneliness, fear or frustration.Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but when I recently looked at the reactions to the post, it surprised me to see that someone considered it funny. Then I tried to think of any scenario or an instance of domestic violence that would be laughable,and I couldn't. This is not funny or cute, and it makes me nervous that whoever this person is may be abusing or mistreating another human being, or someone who knows my stand on domestic violence is lurking around a corner waiting to curse me out or worse. If you are an abuser or mean-spirited person and don't understand what domestic violence means, I feel sorry for you, and wish you well.
JUST NOT RIGHT
Most of you know that I reside in North Carolina, and a hurricane is coming our way. It's great to prepare if you can, but there's no reason for a business to start charging exorbitant prices for gas, food or water in order to line their pockets. There's also no need for consumers to start fighting over products in the local Walmart, Kroger or Dollar General. Reaching into someone else's cart, or pushing someone out of the way is exceptionally rude and uncalled for. Also, why in the world would someone purchase the last cases of water in the store at regular prices, then go out into the parking lot to sell each case for $18???!!!!! Acts like this make me wonder how these same people would feel if someone hurt their wives, brothers, husbands, grandparents or children for a case of water, a bottle of soda or a bag of chips. I also can't help but think about what would happen during an actual apocalypse. Kindness is FREE all the time, every time.
