Karentee joined us about 8 months ago and she quickly became an MVP in the "Online Bargains" forum! But that's not the only place you'll find her. She always has words of encouragement for other members and her quick wit has made me laugh on several ocasions. It's my pleasure to welcome her to the spotlight.
Karent ('t' is silent. Long story. Almost died at birth and the nurse who saved me had my same name so my Dad (being I was his first) felt he needed to name me after this nurse. We think she was German or British as this is the only other place where Karen's are spelled with a 't' at the end. I know many other Karen's so my friends started calling me Karentee years ago in order to distinguish me from the other Karen's.)
State of residence:
New Jersey (born in downtown Manhattan, heart is in Massachusetts)
Senior Project Manager for a Japanese pharmaceutical company
Single but live with my boyfriend of 4.5 years - yep, no ring yet (ugh, another story!).
I wish. Someday. For now I have a spoiled 1.5 year old cat, Rusty.
All Mediterranean cuisine, chinese and fine Belgian chocolates
When Harry Met Sally, Pretty Woman, and The Lives of Others. Enjoy documentaries too.
All books by Jonathan Kozol. Prefer non-fiction. Enjoy books on education and history. (Don't worry, I'm not THAT boring!)
Collecting antique color prints or engravings from the 18th century (thanks to eBay, I can afford them), laughing, shopping, and hanging out with the MBB gang. Enjoy donating to charities for elders, children, those less fortunate, and improving education.
How you found MyBargainBuddy.com:
My bf knows I LOVE bargains and he saw the site listed in the NY Times this time last year. I've been hooked since! (There is a difference btwn being cheap and economical. I'm economical - love quality for a low price!)
Words to live by:
Remember to treat others as you'd want them to not only treat you but your family and friends. If you think an education is expensive, try ignorance. Knowledge is power and mental wealth. Be honest - truth is freedom and keeps the heart, soul, and conscious healthy. Be especially tender with children, elders, and pets. Be grateful for every single thing you have including being able to get up in the morning. Remember that no matter how bad things are, you are rich in the eyes of many others. Don't be afraid to say "I'm sorry" or "I love you" to others. Don't forget to say "thank you" to a teacher, law enforcement officer, firefighter, or veteran - they are key people in how you live your daily life.
