Such is life

Just about life as we know it

My Pet Peeves

What is a pet peeve? is a minor annoyance that a person identifies as particularly annoying to him or her, to a greater degree than others may find it. Defined by Wikipedia..

Here is my top 10 list of pet peeves:

  1. The little tag sticking out of one’s shirt
  2. Wearing a hat at the dinner table (home or restaurant)
  3. Ending a sentence with “Just Saying
  4. Parents who can’t take their screaming child out to the car but instead let them have a screaming fit inside a store.
  5. Parents let children stand up in shopping carts
  6. Press “2” for English
  7. People who wear pajamas to a store, same goes for slippers
  8. Asking for ketchup to go with my fries
  9. Drivers who don’t use turn signals
  10. Cell phone users having a loud conversation in a store~like everyone needs to hear their life story. Who cares!

I didn’t realize I had so many pet peeves and my list could keep going…

Why do the little things annoy so many of us? Because we have no control over controlling what other people do. If we did then we would have a perfect world and since we do not I guess we should live with it or look the other way.

Reap instead of Weep

Summer is on its way and we all could use some insight to summer savings. You probably do not know I am all about saving and being frugal. Here are some summer saving tips to help you.

*Start a vegetable garden and reap the fresh rewards. I think its important to have a garden that you can enjoy during the summer but also enjoy during the winter. I always plant green beans, peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes. I especially enjoy picking vegetables to freeze to have during the winter.

*Hot and Humid days are no one’s favorite type of day especially not mine. Here are some tips to help you save some money. On hot days, close your windows and close your blinds or curtains. It’s best to block the sunshine instead of letting the heat in. I prefer using insulated curtains because not only do they work but they block the heat from the sun and keep rooms comfortable. Don’t run your appliances on hot days because your appliances will work harder and they will increase your homes temperature. Keep this in mind, caves are dark and cool. Your home could be too.

*Run the air conditioner during the day but its best to use a unit that is an energy star product and you can set the temperature. Don’t forget to clean the air filters for the air conditioner; this way your appliance runs smarter not harder. The evenings are best for opening the windows unless its humid outside.

*Savings for vacations and day trips; consider checking with your local library and chamber of commerce to see if they offer any coupons or passes to places such as the aquarium, sporting events, walking tours, etc…Also check online to see if there any savings you can reap for your day trip or vacation. If you are a member of AAA you get a percentage of  savings there too just by showing your card.

*Consider packing a lunch if you are going on a day trip or to an amusement park because concession food can be very pricey.

If you have any suggestions for summer savings, please leave a comment so others can benefit too.
