what's in your inbox?

I was lacking inspiration for a blog post this morning when an email arrived from Tervis Tumblers announcing a special: buy four "french twist" tumblers and receive a matching tote for a mere $15. I can't resist totes, especially good looking ones, and though I would carry this one proudly I really can't justify the purchase of another one while we're scraping pennies together for the wedding (still need a dress, probably shoes, spanks...).

It suddenly struck me that a variety of email "lists" come into my box during the course of a week, so I decided that I would share my riches with you. Aren't you lucky!

Tervis, of course, was the latest arrival, and I am only recently on their list. Love Tervis. I ordered a tumbler each for Junior and Trisha for the rehearsal dinner to mark their place: John Deere for him, Georgia Bulldogs for her.

The Great American Quilt Factory. Even if I didn't quilt (well, I'm not currently quilting, but the sewing machine is set up and I am working on my tissue cozies) I would want to receive their emails. They are SO colorful! If only I lived closer to Denver! Then again...

LL Bean. Love Beans. Love the dogs that appear in the catalog. Love the quality. Wish I loved the prices better.

Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. Coupons, constantly. Good for in-store and online. When a shopping "area" was developed westward in the county Jo-Ann's was finally close enough to get there with some regularity. Since I have coupons on a regular basis I almost always get good deals. Jo-Ann's has things on sale all the time, so often the coupons end up applying to the $2.99 item, but hey, a price break is a price break.

The Container Store. Oh. My. Goodness. I am a container freak, so I practically drool over everything in that store or catalog whether I need it or not. When our row-boat comes in I have a significant purchase in mind to fine-tune the closet in my office.

Missing from the collage above is Ancestry.com. You've probably heard more about my ancestors that you'd like, but I'm glad to have the opportunity to access records and verify data that I already have on file. The email from them reminds me that I have that luxury, whether I use it or not!

There are other sites to which I "subscribe," but they haven't been in my box in the last week. And what about you? What temptations come your way by way of your email in-box?

Bare Escentuals, LL Bean, Endless.com (shoes!), Lane Bryant. I MOSTLY just delete, but sometimes I drool.
