car buying

I bought my used car off Carvana. It's an online dealership. If you live near a vending machine you can pick it up, but they will also deliver the car to you.

It felt really weird to buy a car...

Wow! That takes a lot of nerve. I hope Scholastic cancels the order for you and gives you the points back.

I would definitely call her out on it. Then, I would change my password so she no longer...

Brag tag storage

I didn't want to buy a box for mine because I simply don't have enough room. I ended up using 2 accordion coupon holders from the dollar store. They worked great and were much cheaper.

Deb Hanson

We have PD tomorrow. It's going to be a waste of time. Plus, it's going to be miserably cold in the building (old and outdated). I'm seriously pouting about it! <!--grumpy-->
