Website: Chunky Bling

What girl doesn't love pretty jewelry?

There is a site I found recently called Chunky Bling that has beautiful jewelry without breaking the bank! You can get any type of jewelry with Swarovski crystals, birthstones, pearls, etc, you can even design your own watch for $32! How awesome is it to have a unique piece of jewelry for such an inexpensive amount of money?

Bracelets and other items start at about $10. They also offer a 30 return policy as well as a 60-day repair policy. After the 60 days they will still repair any piece but at a cost of only $8. All pieces also come with a 6 month manufacturer warranty against manufacturer defects.

Take some time and browse the site, you'll probably find something you like!

$2/1 Tribe Hummus

"Like" Tribe Hummus on Facebook and click on the "Sweeps" Tab. There you will be able to enter a sweepstakes for an oppurtunity to win one of four trips around the country! Plus, once you have entered, you will be able to print a coupon for $2/1 Tribe Hummus Item. I've seen this in Safeway for around $3 so this would make for some great inexpensive snacking!

Extreme Couponing on TLC

Tonight on TLC they are doing a show about Extreme Couponing (airing at 8pm ET) where they are interviewing four people who have been considered "extreme" couponers. These people have thousands of items in their stockpiles that they have gotten almost or completely free.

The airing of this show is causing a stir amongst some of my other bloggers for good reason. The show doesn't seem to be showing "regular" couponers in a decent light. Not everyone who uses coupons devotes rooms of their home to their sales/findings or has 70 hours a week to research deals like the participants of this show do.

I know, I know, they want ratings. That's all fine and dandy but I see a lot more negative repercussions of this show than positive ones, I guess. Sure it shows that using coupons can work to save you a lot of money, but they're also showing that you should buy tons of things.

I'm not extreme by any means. I never have more than 5-10 of any one thing, depending on its usage. Even having 10 of something can seem extreme to me at times. I love getting great deals on stuff but I don't want to devote a whole room of my house to my "finds". My grandpa (where I get a lot of my frugal ideals from) was a couponer and had a closet in the house for stuff that he could get inexpensively. I think thats about the most I would be able to do. It's nice to have a closet of back-ups but when it comes to taking over a whole room, it's a little much.

Here's more info on the show airing tonight. I don't know; I'm going to watch out of curiosity, but I don't know if I'm gonna like how couponers are portrayed in it.

If anyone has any thoughts feel free to email me or leave them in comments. I've seen the viewpoints of others on other blogs I read, but I'm never against hearing more.

Alright guys...

We are at the point in my school semester where I say this:

"Expect posting to be a little more sporadic these next couple weeks!"

I have finals/projects/presentations this week and next, plus I have a bachelorette party (woohoo!!!!) for one of my good friends from college this weekend, so I'm really not gonna be around as much as I have been lately.

I'm still going to try and keep up as much as I can, but if you see me disappear for a day or two, just know I'm probably in my bedroom lost in a sea of papers, research, and textbooks, and eventually I'll find my way out of it.

Hope everyone is having a great holiday season so far!!!
