BOGO FREE burgers at Scotty P’s TODAY! July 30, 2010

Scotty P's Yes, there is such a thing as a FREE lunch — especially when you dine out with a friend! Normally I stick with national deals, but this one was too good not to share for my friends in North Texas…

Scotty P’s is one of my favorite burger joints in North Texas. Just try their onion rings and you’ll be hooked! TODAY you can get a FREE burger when you buy one.  They just posted this on Facebook: “Tell our cashier Facebook & Twitter said today is FREE BURGER FRIDAY! Buy any burger & get a 2nd burger of equal or lesser value FREE 7/30/10 ONLY. $6 Max.” (Not valid with other offers.)

So, grab a friend and head out for lunch or dinner. Be sure to say it is your treat! And, if you’re not a burger fan I highly recommend their Greek salad. (I always get the dressing on the side.)

Find a Scotty P’s near you.

Good only TODAY, 7/30/2010.

$3 SuperStar Barbie! March 11, 2010

Everyone wants to be a SuperStar. Now you can pretend you’re one when you own SuperStar Barbie for just $3! Yes, you read that right. Just three smackeroos! That’s less than the cost of a grande non-fat no-foam latte at Starbucks…

Through March 13, 2010, SuperStar Barbie is on sale for the original Barbie price ($3) from 1959. I’ll hop on that band wagon! Who knows, my 2 year old may become a Barbie fanatic. And, if not, I know several adults who’d like this as a gift anyhow!

This SuperStar Barbie is a re-release of the original SuperStar Barbie that came out in 1977. Now she’s out on the town with a shorter hemline and lots of sparkle. She even has her own bling — a “diamond” ring!

You can find SuperStar Barbie in stores and online. Here she is for just $3 at a couple of online spots:


Target (UPDATE: Target online is sold out!)

FYI, when I priced SuperStar Barbie online at Target, the shipping was close to $6 to my house. Here’s my suggestion — buy a bunch! Get together with your office crew or neighborhood friends and buy several in one order while they last! Who wants to go from store to store? And, ordering as a group saves gas money, time, etc. Now, that’s Being Resourceful!
