About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

A Great Way to Never Forget to Send a Birthday Card Again.....

If you're like me, there are always at least three birthdays to remember each month.  Some months can get even crazier!  So this year at the beginning of each month, I'm going to buy all the cards that I need and get them all ready to mail out.  Go ahead and sign them, add a gift card or whatever you normally send, address and stamp the envelope.  I used a Post It label and marked the date it needs to be mailed by. 

Don't forget to check the next month to make sure no one has a birthday the very first week of that month.  You wouldn't want that card to be late! 

I stopped by CVS today and scanned my CVS card at the coupon kiosk machine and it printed a $3 off $12 coupon for American Greetings cards.  I had several ECB's leftover so I used them along with the coupon and bought five birthday cards and a toothbrush for $4.  I also got another $1 ECB back!
