Good morning!

What's on Sale?

Monday- Thursday and Saturday, it's the Wild Card Sale!

Choose a card and get 30% off a particular department (ladies' pants, menswear, infant's clothes- you get the idea.) There's even one card for 30% off your entire purchase!

And of course next Friday is not the FIRST FRIDAY of the month, but the way the days fall, the first Friday in May isn't until the 7th- and that entirely too long to wait for a half price sale... so plan on stopping in for our regular First Friday sale on the LAST Friday:

Half Price Sale
Friday, April 30
10 AM-6 PM
50% off
original price
unless already priced less.
Cash, credit/debit card or check only, please.
You can use your store credit but the discount won't apply.

Field Trip!

Mark your calendar- N2N's having a FIELD TRIP! Here's the deal: twice a year, the Cleveland-White County Optimist Club holds a $6.00 Jewelry Sale. It's a bargain cavalcade of necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, purses, even reading glasses.

Let's all go together! We'll meet up at the N2N parking lot on Friday, May 14th at 10 AM. We'll caravan up to the sale (it's in the Roy Ash community Building on Jarrard St. behind United Community Bank). Any of ya'll in the northern counties can meet us there at about 10:30.

We'll s
hop ourselves silly, then have lunch at Glenda's at 11:30. Next we'll stop by Deb's Deals and Discounts and Just $2.00 More or Less. You'll be home in plenty of time to meet the school bus.

RSVP to Feel free to bring friends and family- the more the merrier!

Could you wear the same dress for 365 days?

Sheena Matheiken wore the same dress every day for 365 days (to be fair, she had seven copies of the same dress, so at least she could rotate them) as part of The Uniform Project. The Project is both an exercise in sustainable fashion and a fundraiser/publicity tool for
Akanksha, a foundation that funds schools for Indian children growing up in slums. Click here to see the video and check out Racked for an interview with her.

This week's recipe

I love black beans- they're cheap, tasty and oh-so good for you. It's a win-win situation. Real Simple magazine has a great recipe for Cuban black beans and rice. They make great quesadillas the next day, too!

Wise Words

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
