Okay, so I have sent all the questionnaires to the proper partners.  At least I hope it's the proper partner.  If you got one and it's not the questionnaire of your partner (as per the list on the front page), please let me know!

If you did NOT receive a questionnaire from me or your partner, please let me know that too.

Um ... anything else?  Am I forgetting something?

A couple of reminders:  please participate in the thread and PM your partner regularly (at least once a week).  If you have questions, please PM your group leader.  If you don't hear from your partner regularly/at all, PM your group leader ASAP so we can figure out if it's just a communications glitch or something else.  (Can we tell I'm a teacher, by the way?) 


 Grin - I don't think once a week is a problem with this group.

LOL @ donniesgirl! i'm beginning the stalking now, but i'm pretty chuffed that all the things my partner wants i can make (or at least am confident experimenting with!) will have to control the urge to buy new fabric, i have enough, i have enough, i have enough..... XD

also i am still quite lonesome on craftster, and it's nice to *meet* someone new!

My favorite coupon tip.... write a generic email that says something along the lines of "I really enjoy using your products. Could you put me on your snail mail list and send some coupons or samples?" Then gather together email addresses of companies (If I can find my list, I'll post it). Then mass send it. You can customize it as you wish for each company, but you'll be amazed at how many GREAT coupons you can get. You can usually do this once every 4-6 months. I do it for veg/vegan/organic companies and get TONS of free item coupons this way. Free. Totally free. Free miso, free whatever. The companies are usually really great about it. Eden foods will send coupons and samples of grains and pastas. Amy's will send free item coupons and high value coupons. And it's through email, so it's free....just takes time. But once you have the email list you just need to remind yourself to send that email every half year or so. Hain Celestial is great about sending coupons, otehr big companies are too.

My tip for the day....

I have an un-frugal fiancee!! I hate when he goes grocery shopping because he never looks to see what's on sale... and I'm not sure what he spends his money on, but we never have money. we always seem to be streching to make things work the last few days before pay day.  

Ooh if you find your list, I'd be interested!  My issue with coupons is I've been trying to "eat clean" and I'm not going to use coupons for processed foods like Kraft.  Why don't they run coupons on bulk millet?  Smiley
