  • Morning Coffee: Remembering 9/11

    Bloggers much more eloquent than I am will talk about the significance of 9/11, so I’ll just say that I will always remember how I felt that morning as I watched CNN. My thoughts and prayers go out to those who are still deeply affected by the events of that day, through the loss of a loved one, illness developed after exposure at the site, military service in the Middle East, and such. Thank you for your sacrifices.

    Things like coupons pale in comparison to the events of 9/11, but the amazing thing about our country is that we are survivors and we do move on. The best thing we can say about 9/11 is that as tragic as it was, and as vigilant as we have had to be ever since, it hasn’t really changed the way we live, the way the terrorists hoped it would. In fact, with 9/11 being a Sunday this year, there are all sorts of new deals and coupons:

    There are a bunch of new coupons at RedPlum, including $0.75/1 Aquafresh premium toothpaste, $0.50/1 Mahatma rice, $0.50/1 Starkist Autentico, and multiple Maybelline and L’Oreal coupons.
