Internet Dependence

Internet Dependence

The Author of this post is Solomon Dejesus

Since I don’t have internet at home, I have to go to my mother’s house whenever I need to use it. Since I’m looking for a job right now, I’ve been going there about every other day to check the postings and fill out online job applications.
She lives almost an hour away from me, and this routine is getting old. I’m spending a ton on gas, and the two hours in the car is wearing on me. I am becoming increasingly dependent on the internet, and this is becoming very inconvenient. Last time I went over there I decided that I was going to check out getting my own internet connection so I didn’t have to drive so far all the time. I figured that with all the money I was spending on gas, it would probably be worth it for me to spring for the service in my own home. I went to wildbluedeals.com and I think I am going to have them vome out and get me connected. I know my mom likes it that I come over so often, but I just can’t take it anymore. All that time I sped driving would be better spent looking for a job and networking.

Organic Peanut Butter - next greal deal?

Costco Kirkland Signature Organic Peanut Butter has always been a great deal - two 28oz organic peanut butter for slightly less than $9. Sadly, I could not find them anymore in Costco in the last two months, and I heard this product time might be discontinued.

What is my next alternative since peanut butter is considered a staple in my family? Santa Cruz and MaraNatha organic 16-oz versions passed my taste test but since they do not come reasonably priced, I recently turned to Trader Joes with organic peanut butter (unsalted, a plus for me!) at $3.99 for 16-oz.

If the taste is acceptable, that will be my source for peanut butter in the coming months.
