feedback and cool stuff from others [day 48]
No shopping yesterday AND I managed to avoid the grocery store. My kids and I went to see the Sno-cone Lady, then went to the library, and they actually wanted to sit there and read for a long time. Wow, that was nice. Much better than being in a store hearing, “Mom, can we get this?” I guess I should mention that during prayer time last night, after my kids prayed for all of the needy people to have what they need, Joe did also pray for the new iPad he wants. Oh well, at least he prayed for the important stuff before wedging in the electronics.
I received some good info from some friends yesterday, so that’s what I would like to highlight today.
Thrift store gift cards
Maria facebooked me that The Colony’s reSale shop has gift cards. I shop (treasure hunt) there regularly and I had no idea they had those. Here’s the link on their website, and they have a 20% off coupon! If you are not in the north Texas area, check your local thrift stores. What a great gift idea! These could also be a good thing to carry around with your fast food gift cards to give out to homeless people.
Recycle your bras
Yes, that’s what I said. Here’s the message Brenda sent…
Just heard about a company that recycles used bras! very cool. maybe you can include in your trash society blog. they area for profit company that also donates to women’s shelters, etc but theyare for profit….but still it’s cool, I normally throw mine away but they take the fabric and wire and remake them. the name of the company is bossom buddies or something like that …i believe they said they were from arizona.
Here’s the website… http://brarecycling.org/ I usually send mine to the thrift store, but I plan to send some here. I suppose, that is, when I can actually part with the 7- year old tattered things.
Thanks you guys for sending this info!
