Wacky Web Wednesday At Thrifty Nickel!

Here at Thrifty Nickel we take Wednesday as serious as any other day of the week. Sure it’s the day after deadline day and we still have to piece the paper together and get it to the printer to ensure that it’s on a newsstand near you on Thursday, but that’s just part of the fun in making a newspaper. So while our production department is going hectic finalizing everyone’s ad placements, some of us like to take things easy.

Now I don’t mean that you’ll find me lounging in my recliner smoking a cigar on Wednesdays, the office just seems to take on a laid back atmosphere sometimes. So in between making sales calls and appointments, we’re finding funny cat videos on the Internet. Because who doesn’t enjoy funny cat videos? I’ll share one of my favorites that I found this week, but not before I remind you how easy it is to place your classified ads online. Just click this link here, and you can place your ads 24/7 from across the globe. We make it so easy because we like to see our customers happy! J Speaking of smiles, here’s your hilarious cat video of the week as promised:

Was Your Number 7?

Now I know what you’re thinking. “How did you know I was thinking of the number 7?” Maybe it was just a fortunate guess, or perhaps I just have other worldly psychic abilities. If you didn’t read the header of today’s blog then maybe you were just thinking “How does Thrifty Nickel put out such a high quality blog every day?” Well I’m not shackled in front of a typewriter and forced to write till the sun rises, I just keep plugging away. Some might say that things here at Thrifty Nickel just keep rolling along like a well-oiled machine. Kind of like the nickel continuously rolling along a treadmill in this video -

Remember to stay safe and enjoy lots of funa nd relaxation this weekend. If you’re looking for some good family fun then head on over to Grande Stadium in Midland. Now through March 3rd they have a variety of fun and carnival games for everyone. Buy an unlimited rides ticket for just $25 everyday to get the most bang for your buck. As for me, I’ll be stuck inside this weekend looking up funny cat videos to post for you all on Monday! :)

Time To Hurry Up!

How does one really measure a day? I suppose that you could quantify it as 24 hours or even 1,440 minutes but I’m not really a numbers person. Some of us measure a day by the amount of work that we get done, which is a great way to look at things unless you didn’t accomplish much that day. Well no matter how you choose to measure a single day, the fact remains the same and you still have only one more day till Valentine’s Day!

So the time to start shopping is right now ladies and gentlemen. Hopefully you’ve formulated some gift ideas for all of your loved ones by now, but if not then we can help. Like I’ve been telling you all for a while now, Thrifty Nickel is filled with lots of great Valentine’s Day gifts.

If you’re not one for the traditional flowers and candy route, then we still have some ideas for you. Here’s one that I’m quite a fan of.  Save your husband or wife from the hassle of working all day then coming home and having to pick up a dirty house and hire a professional cleaner! Thrifty Nickel has lots of commercial and residential cleaners listed in our Business and Service Directory, here are just a few from this week:

-       #1 CLEANING for Homes, Businesses, Offices or Apartments. I am very respectful and dependable. 432-208-6355.

-       BETTER CLEANING By Julie. 14 Years experience. Inexpensive. Dependable/Honest. Windows extra. Use own supplies. Home, office, make ready work. 432-528-0671.

-       WE CLEAN Make readies, corporate apartments, offices, real estate. Reasonable Rates. 432-556-6537, 432-208-0066.

Need something delivered to your significant other for Valentine’s Day? Well then use Always-N-Forever located at 2724 N. Grandview. They have roses, gift baskets, and candy and of course they deliver! Call them today (432) 362-9380 and make this Valentine’s Day one to remember!
