Post 200!!!

I sat down to write my daily post this morning and realized this was the big 200th post. Wow. That's a lot of posts in less than a year. Of course NaBloPoMo helped quite a bit.

I figure with all the talk about the economy and having fewer dollars to spends, we all need ideas on how to spend just a little.

These are some of the things you can buy for $2 these days.

A cup of coffee and great conversation with my girls down at the coffee shop (My favourite way to spend coin)



40 5 cent candies at the corner store (This would be Lizzie's fave)



The weekend newspaper (And Javier's)


A slurpee (Heaven on one of our scorching summer days)



2 litres of gas with a few cents to spare 
(finally under a dollar per litre!)

Fries & a cheeseburger at McDonald's 
(not that I'd ever go there of course...)

How would you spend $2? 

Please comment. In honour of my 200 posts, I want to get my comments over 20! Help

$2, I'd probably buy a 2 liter of Diet Coke. :-)

I'll come out of lurkdom for a good cause. I would buy a diet Mt. Dew. Or take my youngest and let him pick 2 toys at the dollar store. He would be in Heaven.

depends on the day, but today I'd get a lottery ticket & a single chocolate covered cherry. :)

Craft supplies. Hands down. Can easily purchase 2 bunches of brads at Dollarama. Alternatively, I could get some stickers from Michaels.

I can buy 3 packages of Thrills. Hmmm. Thrills. I forgot about Thrills.

Two dollars really doesn't buy much, does it? Hmmmm... if I had two dollars... I would go to the Wal-Mart photo department and get ten prints made at 19 cents each.

I would turn it into quarters and put it into my change jar. My kids always hit me up for money to but candy at the local store. The greedily take a handful of quarters, hop on their bike and buy swedish fish!

Congratulations! $2? Almost a $2.50 beer at happy hour : )

I tagged you for a meme on my blog. Chose one of your posts that demonstrates life as a "real mom" and add it to the list. Hit my blog for details.

Ugh. The "Tess" comment is me. Long story short: one of my teens set up a mock profile using my gmail account for an experiment and when I picked up my laptop this morning, I didn't realize it was logged into the gmail thing. Blech. So all that stuff, above, from me.
