Assistance with counting in the Walmart checkout line…

A friend shared this photo from a Walmart checkout lane with me and I thought it was hilarious…and sad. In case you weren’t clear on how to count to 15, here’s some help.

Although you apparently need to have three hands, which is interesting…

Last day of the month! Print your October 2011 coupons!

Remember that since today is the last day of the month, many of the coupons available on the major coupon sites will disappear. Make sure to print the coupons you need today. Also, don’t forget to go through your coupon binder and use any coupons you have that expire 10/31!

Hope you have a fun day today!

Just FYI, here are the sites I recommend for printing coupons:

Giveaway: 2 early shopping passes to the Jingle Bell Consignment Sale in Knoxville

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I love the Jingle Bell Consignment Sale (and its sister event in the summer, the Southern Bell Consignment Sale)! If you haven’t done your Christmas shopping yet, this is a great opportunity to get some fun toys and clothes at MUCH lower prices than you’d pay at retail stores. The Jingle Bell Sale will be open to the public Friday November 4 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and on Saturday November 5 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. On Saturday all items without a red dot will be half price. The sale takes place in the Felllowship Hall of Ball Road Baptist Church, located at 6323 Ball Road in Knoxville 37931 (off Oak Ridge Hwy.)

I’m so excited to give two early shopping passes away to one reader. These passes will get you in to shop on Thursday November 3 at 7 p.m. If you don’t win, you can purchase passes to the early sale that will allow you to enter on Thursday night at 8 p.m. These passes are $5 each and all proceeds go to the charity Sparkles for Elaina.

Here’s how to enter:

Giveaway: Win one of two sets of tickets to the Junior League of Knoxville’s Tinsel & Treasure November 11 – 13

UPDATE: I’m drawing a winner at 9 p.m. instead or midnight so that you can purchase half price tickets if you don’t win! Half price tickets are available today only through Deal Chicken Knoxville.

As I’ve mentioned before, this is my last year in the Junior League of Knoxville. I joined the Junior League in 2002, and after May I will have completed my 10 years of service and will be what’s called a Sustainer (like an alum). Over the years I have worked on lots of different fundraising events. One of the fun events I’ve always enjoyed is the annual Tinsel & Treasure Holiday Market. It’s a great place to find unique Christmas gifts!

The 10th Annual Tinsel & Treasure will be held at the Knoxville Convention Center November 11 – 13. Tickets are $5 ahead of time or $6 at the door. To pre-order tickets call the League office at 865-584-4124 or go here. There’s also a $1 coupon in the Knoxville Schools coupon book, and on Saturday you can get $1 off admission if you’re wearing orange. Or enter below to win a set!

There will also be two special events associated with Tinsel:

Comedy and Cocktails
Comedian Leanne Morgan will join us for an evening of laughs, cocktails and heavy appetizers on Thursday, November 10th at 6:30 p.m. at the Knoxville Convention Center!  Leanne is a graduate of the University of Tennessee and was a finalist on Nick at Nite’s Funniest Mom! She also toured for three years with the Southern Fried Chicks.  Please note that tickets ordered online can be picked up at Junior League headquarters, located at 6739 Baum Drive or Will Call the eve of the event.  NO tickets will be mailed.  Tickets are $50 each.

Linda Armstrong Kelly Luncheon
Join us for a delightful luncheon with guest speaker, Linda Armstrong Kelly, mother of Lance Armstrong, on Friday, November 11 at 11:30 a.m.  Please note that tickets purchased online may be picked up at Junior League headquarters or at Will Call the day of the event.  NO tickets will be mailed.  If you would like to sponsor a table for the event, please contact the League office at 865-584-4124 for more information.

The Junior League has generously given me two sets of general admission tickets to give away to two readers! Each set contains two tickets to Tinsel & Treasure. I will pick two winners.

Required Entry:

To enter to win, just leave a comment below letting me know if you’ve ever been to Tinsel & Treasure. That’s it!  (If you’re reading this on Facebook/Twitter hop on over to thriftychristy.com to leave your comment.)

Additional Optional Entries:

You can do each of the following things for an additional entry in the giveaway. You can only do each of these once, for a possible total of 5 entries.

Please leave a separate comment for each method of entry. If you only leave one comment then you only have one entry, as each comment is numbered and I randomly choose a number. Make sense?

This giveaway ends at 9 p.m. EST on Thursday November 3. I will choose a winner on Friday November 4  Thursday  right at 9 p.m. and post his or her name. That way you’ll still have time to purchase half-price tickets through Deal Chicken Knoxville, a deal that expires today at midnight!

I will contact the winner via email. Giveaway open to US readers only. Although if you’re living in a foreign country I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t be coming to Tinsel & Treasure, right?
