It’s Black Friday and I have to admit I don’t like large crowds, actually they scare the hell out of me. Shopping online is what I do and believe me over the years I’ve snagged some great bargins by using these three simple tips. 🙂
- Make a list of what you actually need or want and stick to it. This will save from over spending. A deal isn’t a deal unless it’s something you can use.
- Bundle deals aren’t always a bargin. A free item is only a great addition if you can use it.
- Also check out the used market (ebay, Craigslist, Kijiji, etc.) because many people sell their slightly used items to make money for the holidays. A great place to find electronics, video games, cameras and so much more.
So today I’m going to be hunting for online bargins and reading, If I Fail, A Jake Carrington Mystery by Marian Lanouette.
In the donut shop, Andrew West sat on a hard stool at the end of a worn Formica counter and ordered another coffee, this one to go.
Cinnamon collided with the sharp tang of bleach as the waitress wiped the counter beside him.
Outside, traffic built up. While a half-moon poked through the clouds, he eyed the woman heading into the store next door. Anticipation nipped his skin.
She’d be dead by sunset. Sweet retribution.
Thanks to Nathan’s unlimited resources, including the use of his helicopter, Andrew could keep a step ahead of the reporter. Of course, knowing where she’d be every minute came in handy. He couldn’t bring himself to say her name. The thought of her was like vomit on his tongue.
How could a jury have believed her lies? Her bullshit helped put his father behind bars. Her lies had forced his father to kill himself.
She’d said his old man was a dirty cop, implicated him in the theft of millions of dollars’ worth of cocaine from the Miami-Dade evidence-storage facility, and accused him of selling the drugs on the street.
His father had been set up. He wasn’t a thief or a drug dealer. He was hardworking man who’d dedicated his life to protect others.
Andrew heard she had gotten a friggin’ award.
And his father? A wooden box.
From the get-go, Andrew’s plan was simple. Take out everyone the woman cared about. Make her suffer, experience loss like he had.
She was next.
