Two Updates

1. I found my W-2s. And wouldn't you know it, they were in the last place I looked. (I love that, when people say, "They're always in the last place you look." Aren't things always in the last place you look? Why the heck would I keep looking once I found it?)

2. If tax day is approaching, that must mean Opening Day is also approaching. Right now we have just 7 teams signed up. That's less than previous years. So, umm, if you're just procrastinating, email me for the info and sign-up. Because, unlike death and taxes, you can't get an extension on fantasy baseball.

And, if you've already created a team, go set your player rankings for the draft. Because the draft is going to be soon. So, get ready.

Olly Olly Oxen Free

Um... so... just hypothetically, if you received your W-2s in January, along with a few other tax documents, and you decided to put them really safe place for a few weeks (ok, months) until you were ready to do your taxes...

Where exactly do you think that place might be?

I've got about 3 weeks to figure this out. Guess I'll start cleaning my apartment this weekend.

Just Call Me Blondie Bracket

So... if I picked VCU, and no one else did, that means I won, right? I totally kick butt at this bracket stuff.

Save a Buck or Two

I've blogged before about my attempts to save a few cents.

Over the years, I've read almost any article I could find on how to save money. And, the truth is, most of the "tips" are so elementary I think, "Well, geeze, if you didn't know that, you don't deserve to save money."

You know, things like, "Turn off the heat or air conditioning when you aren't home to save on your energy bill." Gee, thanks. Or, "Withdraw enough spending money at your bank so that you won't have to pay ATM service fees." I guess maybe there are people who don't know that. But I've been known to walk a few extra blocks to save the $2 service fee. Not that I think $2 is a ton of money, but because I think, otherwise, withdrawing money at the nearest ATM could become a bad habit, which would add up.

So, anyway, here's a Blonde Justice money-saving tip: RetailMeNot.com has just about every coupon code or promotion code you could ever want. If you're shopping on the internet, and you notice that the checkout page has a space for you to enter a promotion code, check Retail Me Not to see if you can save some money.

I was just sending flowers to a family member that had surgery and I saved $6! On something I was going to buy anyway. You can't beat that, can you?

I will warn you, though, that you should be careful on Retail Me Not. Because if you're like me, you'll find coupon codes for places where you've already shopped and you'll be so frustrated thinking about all of the money you already could have saved if some other nice blogger had given you the same courtesy that I'm giving you now.

Use it for good, never for evil.

(Oh, and hey, you know what else saves money? Participating in the Blawgers Women's Basketball Tournament Pick 'Em. How so, you ask? Well, first, it's free. Second, you can win prizes. Free prizes are a great way to save money. And third, it's so entertaining that you won't need to spend money on other entertainment expenses like... going out to the movies or something.)

It's Back! Women's Tournament Challenge

Ah, finally, March. When the country goes mad for Women's Basketball.

I'm sure your office and the 10 other blogs you read have March Madness brackets. But Blonde Justice is the only place where you can find the Second Annual Blawgers Women's Bracket.

Matter of fact, it's so elusive, I couldn't even find this year's women's bracket page on ESPN. I had to go the men's bracket website, and try changing the word "men" to "women" in the website address bar. I'm serious.

But, I did that for you. And for us. So that we can all play along.

So here is the front page of the Women's Tournament Challenge. We are group #659. This should be a link to our Group Page: Blawgers Women's Bracket. (But I think that link might only work once you've joined the group??? I'm not sure.) The password, once again, is password.

(If that doesn't work for you, you can always email me, and I can invite you to the group.)

It's free to play and ESPN offers actual prizes. (Although there is no prize for being the Blawger's League Champion other than eternal glory for at least a year.) And all you have to do is pick teams in a bracket. So what do you have to lose?

Unlike Blawger's Baseball, there isn't a lot of nitty gritty to iron out. Here's our only group settings: You may enter or leave the group only before the season begins. (Once the season begins, on Saturday, March 17th, you're either in or you're out.)

Brackets can't be filled out yet (since I guess they don't know who will be on them yet), but you can sign up now and fill in your bracket after Monday, March 12th.

And if you need my advice on how to choose teams in your bracket, may I suggest the Aggie over the Horned Frog?
