Did I mention maternity? Yeah--that, too!

New Columns!

My husband, Arthur, and I each write twice-a-month columns for The Times here in Gainesville. His deal with computing and technology issues. Mine deal with whatever strikes my fancy.

His latest was published on June 12. Click

My June 11th column is about a young woman's life turned upside down by bureaucracy. Click here to see it.

Looking for Love

Starting this week, we're introducing a new feature in the Next to Newsletter. We'll spotlight a couple of the adorable pets available at the Hall County Animal Shelter. Between 5,000 and 6,000 animals have arrived at the shelter so far this year. Kitten season is in full session, so these numbers will skyrocket during June.

This little girl is a good example of the hundreds being born this year. Click here to learn more about this sweet kitty.

There are plenty of dogs available for adoption, too. Click here to find out about this handsome guy.

Please, please, please...before you buy from a breeder or pet shop, consider the alternative of a shelter. As Betty Burden, a shelter pet's best friend, reminds us, "Until there are none, adopt one! "

Bring in your adoption form from any area shelter (within one week of the adoption)and get a $10.00 N2N store credit...just our way thanking you for saving a life!

A Chance to Make a Difference

Have you been thinking that you'd like to get involved and do more to help the kids of Hall County? Well, here's your chance! The Gainesville Evening Optimist Club is looking for folks with lots of heart, who know that the best investment is time spent with and for kids.

Since 1948, the Club has nurtured and encouraged the youth of our area- through sporting events, scholarship competitions, student appreciation banquets and more.

The Club is hosting a picnic at Wilshire Park (in the pavilion by the playground) on Tuesday, June 22nd at 6:30 PM. Come join us for some great food and friendly fellowship. Optimist Lt. Gov. Rudy Corn will be there to tell you about the work of the Optimist Club. No hard sell, I promise. Please RSVP to anyone at N2N (770-534-9070) by June 19th.

Homemade Exfoliating Scrub and Body Wash

From Rachel: Mix together 1 cup of granulated sugar with 1 tsp. of vanilla, 1/4 cup of chamomile tea and 2 tbsp. olive oil.
It works amazingly well and the aroma helps you relax in the shower. You can will also use lemon juice instead of tea if you want a good pick-me-up.
Thanks, Rach!

Wise Words

" In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson" --Tom Bodett

Next to New is now on Facebook! Click here to go to our fan page and join up. We'll be posting great deals when we find them during the week and linking to other great frugal sites. We'll have the Deal of the Day and any other Hot Flashes that come our way.

Remember to bring in your plastic grocery bags to recycle and register to win a $25.00 store credit. May's winner was Cindy Furlow. Congratulations, Cindy!

Get a $5.00 store credit any time you bring us a new shopper. It's easy. Just bring in your friends who've never tried N2N shopping. When they check out at the register, we'll give YOU a $5.00 credit on the spot.

Let's work to get the word out: friends don't let friends shop retail!

...and don't forget Senior Discount Day- each Monday, everyone 55 and over gets 30% off their cash purchases.

N2N has resumed cash buying! Here's how it works: for cash, we're purchasing only name brand, mall brand and better fashions. We're only taking in-season pieces (spring/summer). They must be in perfect condition and have been bought new less than 3 years ago.

Just give me a call at the shop (770-534-9070) or on my cell (770-539-1911) I'll need to set up an appointment since I'm currently the only one who is doing the cash buying. I'm giving preference to areas of the shop that have the quickest turn-over in inventory- plus sizes, maternity, men's casual wear, shoes and toddler sizes.

Of course, we're still continuing the store credit buying and the amount we pay is about 30% more than the cash.

Cash or store credit- either way, we all win!

Computer Problems?

Computer House Calls will rid your system of viruses and malware and tune up your computer so it runs faster than the day you bought it. Arthur can sit down with you and teach you what YOU want to learn about your computer. Service is fast, friendly and personalized. If you run into him at N2N fell free to ask him about your computer. He loves to talk tech.

Arthur says there are LOTS of forms of malware circulating the Internet lately, so be sure your system is protected. Drop him a note or give him a call-

That's it for now. Remember-email goes both ways...

If you run across any exceptional bargains or impressive new products, let us know. We'll put the word out!
Have a remarkable week!
