Pay it forward Friday

This Friday I am heading over to my friend Terry's shop Mail Box Express to send out a huge box of expired coupons. I would like to thank my community for providing their expired coupons to me so I may mail them to families serving overseas. I know how important saving money is and I know how much our men and women in the service need the extra money. We were once in the service so I know the expenses associated with the service. It was the hardest job my husband ever did and we appreciate our ...

Inspiration: Jenny Lawson

One of the bloggers that I admire is Jenny Lawson. I admire her candor. I am not a fan of the language she uses but it fits how she expresses herself. She is open and honest and direct. I enjoy her rants about daily life and her ability to create change. I do not have a red dress but I have red lips more often than not. I do not struggle with depression but at times I struggle with everything I have to do. I am sure we all struggle at some point. I like the way she united people and gave them a ...

I encourage you to support companies like Gutzy ...

Pay It Forward

    I quit teaching because I never made any money. I always took my pay check and I bought things for my students. I am kidding but it was because I had children. I will always be a teacher at heart. I am lucky enough to have built this site which supports paying it forward. I chose to answer a request on my son's teacher's wish list. I am sure she never expected to have it answered. The reason is simple she had this great series of lessons but the students wouldn't be able to see ...

Supporting the Community: Cash Mob

Our area was recently hit by a severe storm which resulted in widespread power outages to thousands. Among those affected were local businesses. These businesses lost everything which needed to be refrigerated or frozen. Additionally, they lost revenue by virtue of not being able to open their doors until power was restored.  One business is not even sure if they will be able to reopen. They are waiting to hear what insurance will cover. What can a community do to support these businesses? ...
