Eric, the incredibly handsome producer from Evening Magazine sent me a video of my segment which aired on King 5 Evening Magazine last night. I thought I would share it so those of you who are out of state could watch it.

What a wild and crazy few weeks this has been!

    I’m catching up (I was behind on some of these) – This was fabulous! You did a great job :)

  30. Hi Mavis,
    I’ve been a fan of your website for close to a year now. I have the tendency to “stack” my email updates so I sometimes read up to 10 or more at a time. But the fact that I read 99% of them shows how inspiring,how humorous,and how interesting they are! I have been a vigorous couponer for the past few years, but only recently am I really and truly trying to live more frugally. I have started at least a small stockade of canned goods,rice & pasta. I’m hoping to expand that to include household goods&toiletries. Even our cat now gets 16pd bags of his food w/coupons and on sale I easily save 40% or more. He’s a 30 pound large breed feline so saving money on feeding him is crucial. But hubby&I love him beyond belief so even if he wanted to eat gold flakes we’d probably oblige!

  31. PSS………
    Mavis(and everyone else)
    Please ignore the fact that I posted a comment that probably would be more appropriate in another part of the site here. I had just finished watching the channel 5 clip prior. I can completely relate to the bored suburbia housewife persona,obviously! Only minus the garden,the friendly neighbors,and the chickens!
    BTW I already have seen that you already have a #1 East Coast fan..
    So I am your #2 East Coast fan ( born&raised in DC, and now live in a nearby suburb)

    thanks again
