Talk About It Tuesday - Preparing to Look for a Job

I'm a little late getting this post out here. I had a super busy day yesterday but that's what I'm going to talk about today.

As part of my "package" from work, I was given the opportunity to meet with a placement counselor. The counselor would assist me in my job search, revamp my resume, and train me on interviewing. Since I had been working for the same company for many years and only interviewed with two people that I had previously worked for, I knew I needed to jump on this opportunity. Plus the job market in this area isn't the best...we've had some big hits lately. The best part - the counselor works with me until I find a job whether that be 2 weeks, 4 months, or 3 years!

To start the process off, I had to fill out a 30 page document about my work history, references, schooling and general questions. I also provided them with a copy of my resume.

The second meeting was all about me! Sounds good, huh? Not for me, I don't like to be the "star". However, it wasn't that hard. I had to list 15 sparkling words, write a summary about myself, list job titles I would like to hold, and then describe my ideal job.

Yesterday we met again. This was an information packed day. I started off writing down everyone I knew. My thought - "Hello, how long are we going to be here today?" I just asked for a few more sheets of paper and got to work. After that I had to tell, who I have let know that I was looking for a job and companies I have contacted.
My thought again - "Hello, how long are we going to be here today?" I tell everyone! I really believe in networking - from the guy at the coffee shop to the nurse at the pediatrician to the soccer moms that were at away games. (There was a good article in Business Week a few weeks back that mentioned not yelling at the referee that's at your child's game - you never know where he might come in during your job search, he could be the one interviewing you.) I found out that hidden jobs make up for 80% of the job market. Networking helps to find these jobs. Then it was time for the mock interview. The first question stumped me - "Tell me about yourself." I almost replied, "Well, tell me what you want to know." But I got through it and finished the interview. I found that the exercise we did the week before were the answers to each question she asked except for those about the company and why I left. We went through do's and don'ts as well as the "better" answers to the questions. It will make my next interview a lot easier (yes, I am determined to get an interview). Before leaving, I did get to glance at my "new" resume. WOW - it looked nice! It sure made my old one look bad.

Now they will send out my resume and cover letter on my behalf. The only ads they will not answer are those that need to be emailed versus mailed. They will send me an email and all I will have to do is send it from my email. Pretty simple...hopefully finding a job will be that simple! =)

Sorry for the long post...I wanted to get an updated out here.

Tackle It Tuesday - Entertaiment Center

A couple weeks ago I updated our family room but didn't really do anything as far as the furniture that went into the room. I put back the "old" stuff. We didn't really have an entertainment center. We just had a "tv holder" was junk (yep, missing the glass doors and all). Check out all the cords - not a pleasant sight. I had purchased an entertainment center a while back. Since we have guests coming to our house for Thanksgiving dinner on Friday (and my fiance was out of town again), I thought it would be a great time to get it together. It sure makes the room look a lot better and more inviting. I hope to get our tree up in our living room by Friday evening so I can move the small couch out into the family room for additional seating.

Menu Plan Monday - 11/24/2008

The past weeks I didn't get around to posting my Menu Plan but I did make them and followed them. This week is pretty boring as far as food choices. Since we will be cooking Thanksgiving Dinner at our house on Friday, we are going to take it easy the rest of the week. I'll post some of the recipes that I will be using on Friday for our dinner - Buttermilk mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, and pumpkin pie cups.

I got a new pressure cooker last year for Christmas. I haven't really used it too much since I've been out of work. I'm going to be putting that to use over the next couple of on cooking time! Do you have a pressure cooker? Any good recipes?

Here’s my plan for this week…

Sunday: Pizza, Pizza dip with wheat crackers (will post dip recipe)

Monday: Coney dogs, pasta salad and chips

Tuesday: Tequila Lime Pork Spareribs (in pressure cooker), mashed potatoes, corn, peaches

Wednesday: Family Size Burrito

Thursday: Thanksgiving Dinner @ my parents

Friday: Thanksgiving Dinner @ our house

Saturday: Southwestern Casserole (from freezer)

Sunday: Thanksgiving leftovers

My Shopping Trips - Week of 11/16/2008

No big grocery trip for me this week. I did make a run to Meijer at the start of the week for some more steamers and salad dressing (or health kick we started). I picked up a few other things while I was there. I made a stop at Walgreens and CVS as well.

I was so proud of my fiance on Sunday. He had bought some Champion Men's Sweatshirts on Saturday at regular price $16.99. They went on sale for $12.99 on Sunday. I told him to stop by the service desk with his receipt and get the difference back. He looked at me funny. He's not one to do that kind of thing. (Yes Houston, we have a problem but I'm working on it.) When he got home, I asked him about it. He said he got $21.xx back and even used coupons to pick up some soup. I was SOOOOO proud! He was shocked at the amount of money he got back - almost enough to buy 2 more sweatshirts! So, be sure to keep your receipts and watch for the item to go on sale the following week or 2 weeks for some stores.

We really didn't need the toilet paper but for $2.14 for a 6 mega roll package (on sale for $3.14 used $1.00 Meijer Mealbox coupon) - it wasn't a bad deal. We already had a pretty big stockpile from a few weeks back. Total OOP: $14.41 - - saved 71% plus I'll get $2.98 back on the Try Me Hillshire Farms Hearty Slices rebate.

I did the battery deal once for myself and twice for my mother. She used to be a coupon clipper but hasn't done it since I was a youngin'. She didn't coupon anywhere near the way I do. She was really impressed that she could get all the batteries in the second pictures for $7.04.

Transaction 1:
I had 2 - $.75 cent coupons for the Skippy and 3 - $.75 cent coupons for the batteries.
Total OOP: $6.72 -- received $15 ECB

Transaction 2 & 3:
These transactions were done back to back. I used the ECBs from transaction 1 into transaction 2 with 3 - $.75 coupons. One of the packages had a $.50 coupon on it and the cashier took that off too. Then I rolled the ECB from transaction 2 into transaction 3 with 3 - $.75 coupons.
Total OOP: $7.04 -- received $15 ECB for each transaction

Transaction 1:
We are hosting a Thanksgiving dinner at our house the day after Thanksgiving so I picked a few 2-liters. I used a $.60 and $.40 coupon on the Skippy. Yes - more peanut butter (my son takes it for lunch everyday). I had a coupon for the 2-liters that I got from CVS - Buy 4 save $1...I used the Walgreens in-ad coupon to get one free when I bought 4. The string cheese was for the kiddo - it was cheaper than what he really wanted! =)
Total OOP: $8.44

Transaction 2:
I read over at Coupon Cravings about a deal on the Hershey's Special Dark but it didn't work for me. I tried! I handed the lady my manufacturer's coupons first and she pulled out her ad to scan the in-ad candy bar coupon. I was still able to get 6 candy bars for $1.17.Total OOP: $5.95 -- I'll get $2.20 Easy Saver rebate back on the Scotch tape (10% bonus for putting in on my Walgreens gift card).

This week's totals:
Total before coupons/sales: $146.48
Total OOP (minus mom's batteries - she paid me for them): $35.52
Rebate amount: $5.15
Total Savings = 79%!!

Fat Ticker Friday - 11/21/2008

It’s that time again…time to step on the scale.This week I am down 3 pounds!!It’s been a busy week so I’m pretty surprised.I was able to get in a couple workouts on Monday – 34 minutes/2.75 miles on the elliptical, week 2 –workout 1 of the Couch to 5K, and strength training.After Monday, the workout vanished…didn’t happen around here. I had training on Tuesday and my fiancĂ© left to go out of town on Wednesday morning.We didn’t have as much warning on this trip so I had to run a few extra errands than usual.

I had a little bit of a challenge going on at the beginning of the week too. My fiancĂ© decided he was going to try to drop a few pounds. I didn’t want to be out done by him so I changed a few of my eating habits (I actually ate breakfast) and made sure to drink lots of water. I guess it paid off.

The biggest challenge I faced this week was the training session I had on Tuesday night. It was at The Cheesecake Factory. As soon as the food came, I asked for a box to box up half of my meal (and I avoided the pre-dinner bread). But, I had a piece of Pumpkin Cheesecake. I thought this was the mock interview session of my training so I went along with the dessert and everything then found out the mock interview is next week. Oh well, the cheesecake was good and I was able to drop 3 pounds this week. I've asked that the mock interview not be over lunch...see your job could make you fat.

My goals for this week:
3 - 30 minute workouts (I'm going to try to make the 2 hour Burn the Bird Workout on Saturday.)
Limit myself to 1 piece of pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving (attending 2 dinners and hosting 1)
Lose 2 pounds

Things I Love Thursday - Fuze Empower Pomegranate Acai Berry

Wow - it's time for Things I Love Thursday already? Oh my! With not working, I really never now what day of the week it. Anyways... The thing I love this week is Fuze Empower Pomegranate Acai Berry. It's one of their new slenderizing drinks - low carbs and low calories which would normally mean "yuck". It's actually really good. Not only does it taste good but pomegranate and Acai berry is good for your body. It's kind of a win-win situation. It also gives me a break from my water (I'm a water drinker).

To see what others love, visit The Diaper Diaries' Things I Love Thursday.
