Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able.
Good morning! Welcome to October. . . I think it’s officially fall. I’m not sure I’m ready to turn the heat on just yet – but it won’t be long. I plan to make a couple Crockpot recipes today so we can jump into Crock-tober- are you excited? I think you will be after you see some of the great recipes that have been sent in!
The check engine light came on this week on my husband’s car. It’s rounding the corner to 100,000 miles and is 12 years old. Although we’d love a new car, I think it still has lots of life left in it. I called our car repair place and I swung by yesterday to have the code ran to figure out what might be going wrong. If you live in Thurston County I can’t say enough good things about Larsen’s Auto Repair. I pull up to the front door and they greet me by name and say hi to my daughter (haven’t been there in months!), they run the code and because the code wasn’t egregious (and the car is running fine) to keep on driving it and keep them posted. No bill. No pressure to fix anything. They recommended that if the light comes on again, to stop in again – they’ll read it again and we’ll go from there. Our old car likes to pop on the engine light a lot – many times without any big concern – and they know that because we’ve been going there 7+ years. As a frugal person car repair shops have always made me cringe – but since I’ve found Larsen’s Auto Repair, it’s been awesome. They keep our old car running, without charging us a fortune – always explaining our options and never making us feel pressure to do anything. It’s been the same reliable team in the office for as long as we’ve taken our car there and we’ve always been treated well and genuinely. You won’t find coupons for their oil changes like these big-box operations – but they do use high-end oil and have a competitive price, plus you’re supporting a small business with honest people. I’m not being compensated for sharing this – in fact, I’m fairly certain they have no idea about my blog – but I feel so strongly that they are legit that I had to share. Do you have a favorite local Puget Sound or Washington business or company that you think stands out from the rest? Leave a comment and let me know!
