Well, it’s Wednesday, the day before Turkey Day in the US. Are all my American counterparts ready to eat some turkey??? Gobble Gobble.
So this week I am claiming saving submissions at work. I negotiated with suppliers on two parts 🙂 with the aid of one of the category managers. The first two submissions total up to $25,000!!! These are baby submissions. The submissions the category managers submit are usually in the hundreds of thousands, if not millions. Hopefully, in two years I will be a category manager, if not sooner!!! By the way, I work in sourcing. In laymen terms, sourcing is the arm of a company that flexes its muscle when the company needs cost reductions, and makes its suppliers reduce their prices. Competition leads to lower prices. And a company always needs cost reductions!!!
So, not only am I thinking about money in my personal life (ahem..personal finance blogger), I also work and think with money every day. Sometimes thinking about so money does drive me a little crazy, so I’m not sure if I suggest it.
Here are my Thanksgiving Plans:
- Thursday – Spend it with in-laws and family. Eat turkey and try not to watch football
- Friday – Go shop for XBOX 360 in the morning, hit the road to go see my parents. Spend afternoon and evening with parents.
- Saturday – Spend morning with parents and little brother. Drive back to Dallas in the evening.
- Sunday- Recover
Anybody else shopping for an XBOX 360? What deals have you found so far? What are you doing for Thanksgiving???
