I have a camera. The hubby bought it for me a few years ago. It’s all fancy and can take a whole bunch of fancy kinds of pictures. I know how to turn on the flash and press the button to take a picture.

The husband has a lot of painting stuff. An easel and brushes and acrylic paints and canvases and tape. He makes all straight line paintings that he has taped off. It looks like stained glass

I would love to be able to prepare a 4 course meal in 20 minutes like Bobby Flay. What I can actually manage is hot dogs and mac and cheese.

I’d love to learn how to play Dungeons and Dragons. Epic adventures. Sweeping battles. Vanquishing evil foes.

Just kidding on that last part. That’s totally the hubby that wants to learn that. I think he played once like 20 years ago but he still goes on about his Dwarf character and his enchanted axe that spoke Elf. Blah blah blah. Ahh. My dork husband.

Well, if you want to do any of these things and you happen to live in one of the cities that Vimbly.com is in, you are in luck. In addition to awesome ideas for tourists, Vimbly.com is also filled with tons of local classes you can take. Photography, painting, cooking, riding a bike, even playing Dungeons and Dragons. These are all things you can sign up for on Vimbly.com. Find it. Sign up. Show up. Soon you too could be a painting, picture taking, cooking, battle-hardened dwarf warrior.

Now I just need Vimbly.com where I live.

Double Your Savings When You Buy Gift Cards At Kroger! #Kr2xdip {Plus Giveaway!}

Yeah, I’m a Black Friday fanatic. Note that I said Black “Friday.” I don’t do Thursday. In fact I blatantly boycott stores that are open on Thursday. But at the same time I am on a budget. That doesn’t mean I go cheap, it just means I go with a very firm limit on what I am going to spend. There are two ways I do that: Cash and gift cards. My credit cards and debit card stay at home on Black Friday, under lock and key.

So my strategy is simple. I pick up the Sunday paper and scour the online Black Friday sites. By the time Thanksgiving rolls around and the paper comes out with the Black Friday ads, I’m already set. You know why? Because I went to the bank on Wednesday for my cash. And on the way home I stopped by Kroger and stocked up on a whole lot of gift cards along with my last minute Thanksgiving dinner items. Then I immediately pull my debit card out of my wallet and put it up in the cabinet.  So I’ll be stocking up on Gift Cards for stores that are closed on Thanksgiving and doing my Black Friday shopping on Black Friday. Look out Home Depot, REI, Barnes and Noble and Marshall’s. I’m coming for you.

This Black Friday, in addition to using my gift cards like cash, I’ll be able to save even more. Want to know how? Right now at Kroger, you can double your savings by earning 4x fuel rewards and extra credit card rewards (if that is your thing) when you buy gift cards.

HOW IT WORKS:

Fuel Offer: Now through December 6, 2014, get 40 cents off per gallon when you spend $100 on gift cards. ALL gift cards are included in this offer with the exception of Visa variable, MasterCard variable, and American Express variable gift cards. Any other “variable” gift cards are included and you can add any amount that you want up to $500!

This is handy dandy and useful even if you don’t use your credit card!

Earn Credit Card Rewards: Use your favorite rewards credit card to purchase gift cards. This will allow you to earn points and miles or a percentage back on your purchase. Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at grocery stores!

Now, if you will humor me, a little math. Feel free to skip this part if the percentage breakdown game isn’t your thing!

Right now you can save 15% when you purchase $100 in participating gift cards:

$6 Off Fuel: Anytime you buy a $100 gift card you will earn $0.40/gallon of gas. That is $6 in savings for a 15 gallon tank.

$3 Back: If you earn 3% on grocery purchases through your credit cards rewards program you will get $3 back!

For additional details, head to Kroger near you!
