Click here for a coupon to get a $25 gift card at CVS when you transfer a prescription to their store:

They are closing the Mentor, OH store. They are exiting 8 markets including Cincinnati while closing 26 stores across the U.S. Sale prices are 20% to 30% off. They used to do more coupons in the past and stopped that some time ago. Wonder if that had an effect on whether people shopped there. I know I didn’t go in there as much when they didn’t entice me with coupons. I would’ve probably gone there more if they allowed me to pop all the bubble packaging wrap too.

New September coupons available. Some good coupons for doubling. Seems like more stores are taking internet coupons. Hope it stays.

They are giving a 5 cent discount on Saturday and Sundays in September when you use your Speedy Rewards card. Also remember that you can get a gas card for Speedway at Marc’s that will get you 10 cents off per gallon. While you’re filling up, if your kids need to find a science project for school, have them test the bacteria in the gas station bathroom and the handles of the gas pumps. Might be a good chance that the bacteria culture will bloom into a spore wonderland ruled by a colony of sea monkeys. When I was in Croatia recently they had a container of disposable plastic gloves at gas stations for customers to use, so they were onto it.

Bananas – 33 cents
Gala Apples – 77 cents/lb
Pears – 69 cents/lb

I just coughed. Not a very productive one. Just a minor clear-my-throat kind of cough. You’re saying to yourself now, Joe we appreciate hearing about your latest cough, but it doesn’t rate very high on my things-I-need-to-know-right-this-very-minute scale. Well, the reason I’m posting this is because it would rate very high on Facebook and Twitter. On Facebook or Twitter people want to know when you did your laundry, what’s for dinner, or your latest dilemmas. …and when you coughed.

I just took a sip of my coffee. It was slightly tepid. I know you would have liked to know that too. So when people read things about you it’s like reading your diary. Or sort of like your mind diary. What has got your brain preoccupied. It’s like your 411 to the world and you have something important to tell the world whether it be trivial, meaningful, or all surfacy.

Pictures are good too because it tells me what you want people to think about you. Once I get a chance to put a picture up of myself on my Facebook page, it will be of me smoking a corncob pipe looking very smart with a fedora on my noggin tilted to the right and I will be letting out a hearty laugh. Next to me will be a Cape Buffalo and my cats playing Go Fish while wearing ZZ Top beards. The mystery behind it is what am I laughing so hard about. I think I’m gonna make pasta for dinner. Oh, and I just coughed again.

Always remember to keep coupons and coupons books in your car – how many of you walk to the store? Yes, most of us take our ride to the store. And how many leave your coupons on the kitchen counter? If you keep them in the car, you can always step out of the store and into your car to get your coupons. Make it a habit to keep them in your car. You have to do it 26 times in order for it to be a habit though.
