Morning, everybody!

This is SO exciting! Starting today, the Next to Newsletter is available in BLOG format! It'll make for an easy archive. Ever wanted to go back to the Free Rice game or locate a link from an old newsletter that's no longer in your saved email? No longer a problem! The newsletters will be easily archived- just scroll back to find the one you want.

The most exciting aspect to me is the ability for readers to comment on the newsletter- add suggestions, thrifty links, anything! It'll feel much like the community we are.

I'll continue sending out the email newsletter while I get a better handle on this blogging stuff. After that, if all goes well, I'll be sending a link each week to the blog...IF all goes well.
Anybody have experience using Blogspot? If you do, I'd love to meet up with you somewhere like Panera where there's an Internet hotspot and pick your brain. There's lunch in it for you so please give me a call.'s the blog. Look it over, click on the comment envelope at the end of the post and let me know what you think.

What's on Sale?

Monday-Tuesday: Ladies' Dresses and Sets

There's CA$H in your closet!

Since the economy began it's precipitous nosedive, N2N has been doing all of it's buying in exchange for credit in the shop. That move has kept us solvent and in business while so many other shops have folded.

Now, we've decided to stick our toes back into the cash buying waters...each week, we'll be doing cash buying for one area in the shop that really needs inventory. Now, for the second week, it's SHOES.

Here's how it works... bring your shoes (men's, women's, children's) that are in perfect condition. We'll buy them for cash. You can bring in other clothing and accessories as well- we'll buy them for credit as usual. Please pack your shoes separately and let us know that you have cash items when you come in. Buying hours are the same: Monday thru Thursday 10AM to 4PM and other times by prior arrangement.

We'll be buying shoes for cash for the next week- through Sunday the 24th. Check next week's newsletter to see what the next buy-for-cash department will be.

Stop the presses! New columns!

My husband, Arthur, and I each write twice-a-month columns for The Gainesville Times. His deal with computing and technology issues. Mine deal with whatever strikes my fancy. His latest was published on May 9. Click

Word Bubbles

Woman's Day Magazine has a great online presence. My latest find there is a game called Word Bubbles.

It is designed to train and improve your processing speed. It targets verbal fluency by training you to think flexibly and creatively to come up with words. It's also here to give it a try.

This Week's Recipe Blog

Whenever we've visited Sarasota, one of my favorites stops has always been Yoder's, a restaurant run by members of Sarasota's large Mennonite community. Their Pennsylvania Dutch style cuisine is as delicious as it is hearty. Now you can try these recipes at home. There are cabbage rolls, hot cross buns, even a special gluten-free section. Click
here to go to the Mennonite Girls Can Cook blog.
