My big thrifty score this week was buying a car through an auto auction. My sister has a good LDS friend who charges $500 to help you buy at an auction
where the dealers buy their vehicles in Las Vegas. I bought a 2003 (used)
vehicle for $8000 LESS than I would have paid at a dealership and probably $3500 LESS than what I would have paid to a private seller (based on Kelly Blue Book value). Woohoo! If anyone is interested I'll give you the guy's name...Stepahnie Figgatt also bought her car at an auction with a guy up in the LA area. He charges $1000 because he specializes in higher end cars.
I'm still stuck in the minivan price range...

One of Sister Thrifty's readers wants you to pass this along to your friends to support the fight against breast cancer:
The makers of M&M candies has teamed up with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to raise funds through the sale of their new " pink &white" M&M candies.
For each 8-ounce bag of the special candies sold, the makers of M&M
(Masterfoods) will donate 50 cents to the foundation. The next time you want a treat, please pick up a bag. (now sold in stores nationwide) - You will be donating to a great cause and satisfying your sweet tooth. Like I need another excuse to eat MnM's!!!
By the way, I'm going to BYU to attend Education Week and wanted to tell you all about it. It's WONDERFUL and you really need to find a way to go one year. Talk about filling up your spiritual cup, if ya know what I mean.
There are classes on parenting, marriage, gospel topics, health, ballroom dance, education, relationships, and so much more. It rejuvinates me and gets me ready for another school year. If you can't get to Provo during August 16-20, get to your satellite dish instead and watch some of the lectures they'll be recording and showing in the evenings during that week.
DISH Network and DirecTV both have BYUTV and will have the programing for Education Week. Once you go you'll wonder what took you so long to do it!
I'll be traveling so if I don't find a computer to send you an e-mail for a couple of weeks, then think thrifty thoughts!!
