Things I Wish I Had...

You get a little spoiled when you've lived in different places. Your rational brain tells you that not every retail or food chain can live in one city, but after living in lots of cities, your emotional brain says "why not?!?!?!?!?" So here's just a random, pathetic whine from me, after reading some other blogs, on stuff I wish we had in Omaha.

-Meijer- Got to experience this in Springfield IL. I loved this store because it was like department store meets Super Walmart, with a great deli, good produce, and great prices.
-Ikea- Yes, I have Nebraska Furniture Mart, so I can't whine too much, but it's not Ikea
-Dierbergs-best grocery store EVER. St. Louis people, you are so lucky!
-Straubs-the other best grocery store ever...more fru fru.....and also St. Louis.
-Steak and Shake- Because only they slice their pickles the long way
-Waffle House- In the South, I've found 2 Waffle Houses at the same exit, one in each direction. Think they'd be willing to spare 1?
-McAllisters Deli- Besides the stuffed baked potatoes that are bigger than my head, awesome sweet tea and honey mustard that is simply drinkable.
-Carl's Jr.- California I miss you for your fast food. But my junk in the trunk does not
-In and Out burger- Ditto
-White Castle- Actually, I don't really miss it, but my hubby does, and anything that makes him happy makes me happy :)

Anything you wish YOU had? Please feel free to whine shamelessly with me ;)

I wish our stores here in Omaha would double and triple coupons. I don't use coupons now but I sure would if our stores at least doubled the value.

I agree whole-heartedly! I always pout when I read about other women scoring big with double couponing. Oh well. I still find great coupon opportunities with the face value.
