Deal: Walk-in and ask for a puppy and get one---edible that is. While you are there it will be hard to resist the wide assortment of cupcakes 6 for $10--especially the red velvet. You will also get a glimpse of their custom cake work. Maybe order some custom cake for all the spring events coming up while your eating a yummy sandwich?

Deal: Have you ever shopped at a Pawn Shop? There are some good deals. I have pick up Ipods for usually half-off list price and they are loaded with songs. I have purchased binoculars for $20 because they were for my kid and I didn't want to make a big investment. I also picked up a Leatherman with the case for $15. DVD's are 4 for 10. Power tools to jewelery. You never know what kind of treasure you will find.
Deal: Evolution of smooth (EOS) is having a hand lotion give away. Head over to Facebook and like them and you will be entered in the giveaway. They are giving away 5,000 full-size hand lotions in mint or cucumber every Monday. If you don't win you are automatically entered into next week's contest.
