Comp List 8/21-8/27

Hello, everyone!  I want to say a few things before we get started on the deals this week... 

I have been getting a lot of messages lately asking when the list will be out or why you haven't received it yet, etc.  I figured rather than reply to each message I will write it on here so it is MUCH easier for me!  Anyway, I would L-O-V-E to get the list out as quickly as possible, probably more so than you want to have it as quickly as possible.  But sometimes it is just not possible.  Here is why:  Reason 1) I work a full time job. I USED to have Wednesdays off but I don't anymore so I spend most of my evenings after work getting the list ready as much as possible for Wednesday.  But this is difficult due to Reason 2) I have 2 small children.  My son is 5 and my daughter is 2 1/2.  My son is starting school on Thursday (the 22nd) and my maniacs need me.  So sometimes I have to have a tickle fight or scoop out ice cream instead of working on the list.  And my husband occasionally likes me to look at him rather than at my computer screen.  Next is Reason 3) I try to do as much volunteer work as possible.  I don't have a whole lot of time to dedicate to it but I like volunteering so I usually have to spend a few nights a month working on stuff.  And that reminds me of Reason 4) My Master's degree- I am enrolling for this fall semester to start working on my Master's from Baker University.  I am going to be even MORE busy!

Anyway, I am not trying to make any excuses but I wanted to let you know I am not just sitting around purposely NOT sending the list out as quickly as possible.  I often stay up late to do it (and wake up early for work).  But I do offer many other ways to get the list in addition to the email:

          Awesome Way To Get the List #1) Facebook.  Find me at  
                     Add me as a friend and you will see it as soon as I post it!

          Awesome Way To Get the List #2) My blog.
                     I post it here as soon as I get it done on Wednesday nights.

          Awesome Way To Get the List #3) Twitter.  I am @CompListLady

          Awesome Way To Get the List #4) My Yahoo! Group:
                    You don't have to have a Yahoo! address to join and it will send you the list the MINUTE I post it there.

And you can always still get the list through email from me but just please remember it may be Thursday, Friday or even possibly Saturday before it will get to your inbox.  I will try to hurry like I always do but sometimes life happens.  And quite honestly, one week I just forgot to finish sending it out.  :)  Thank you for being patient!

And the last thing I want to say is it is pretty much impossible for me to catch EVERY SINGLE deal out there.  I try to catch the best ones but I am human and I will inevitably miss things or perhaps it is just an item I don't use so I may not know it is a good deal.  But I try my best! And if you don't think I am catching the best deals or you need different items, by all means look them up- I even provide the links below! (But please don't message me with each deal I have missed!)

I think I am about to step off of my "soap box" now! Thank you and Happy Shopping!

Wow! It sounds like you are very busy! Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to make my shopping life easier and frugal. Seriously. Those who complain about not getting the list right away should think about what their lives would be like without the COMP LIST. My wallet, my hubby and I thank you.

I don't think you need to give anybody any excuses.
Your doing this out of your free time, who has the right to complain?
I find it a blessing that you do this for all of us and I thank you for all your time and energy that you put in to this.
I know I couldn't do it.
Once again,thank you so much from my family.

WHAT! Why in the world would anyone complain! You do this out of your spare time for many, many people who could just as well do it themselves but they don't they rather complain to you that you missed something or didn't get the comp list out fast enough UNBELIEVABLE PEOPLE. so sorry you've had to deal with people like that, they must be very ungrateful! This is a lot of work there is no reason to apologize or explain. you do a awesome job and my family thanks you so very, very much, you are MUCH APPRECIATED!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this each week. As a paycheck to paycheck family we appreciate it so very much. I am sorry that anyone would complain about something that you are doing out of the goodness of your heart. You are a blessing to so many of us.

I just want to point out that your list is a kind of charity which helps a lot of people. It should earn you blessings in this world as well as in the next world...
