Let Your Heart Grow Three Sizes This Holiday: I Paid It Forward from Kohl’s

One of my favorite Christmas stories is How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I  don’t think it was a favorite story when I was younger, with a green “what” (exactly) stealing the Who’s gifts. But as an adult the message became so clear, that I couldn’t fault the Grinch and his dislike of the Who’s celebrations. […]

Office Depot Foundation Donated 300,000 Backpacks This Summer

While we are going crazy with back-to-school shopping, we have to remember to be thankful that we can afford to send our children to school with supplies. Not everyone is that lucky. Kids go to school without backpacks or folders, pencils or erasers. How can they get the education they need if they don’t have […]

Second Chance Toys: Land of Misfit Toys?

Right about now is when I am already 3/4’s done with my Christmas planning. From where we will be spending Christmas Day to dishes we’ll be serving. From volunteering at the school to donating toys at the church. And I even know (mostly) what Santa will be bringing my children. The thing is, Santa is […]

Winn Dixie: Box Tops for Education & Fuel Perks #win #myblogspark

My friend Samantha once said you can tell who has kids in school when they are determined to buy an item with Box Tops. That’s because most schools collect Box Tops from parents, friends and relatives, because they can be redeemed as cash for the school. So you might buy Betty Crocker over another brand, […]

And I am thrilled that […]

Rent College Books for Less

When I was in college, I remember forking out a lot to purchase our college text books. I tried to save some money by buying them used or off-campus, but it still wasn’t affordable from a college student’s point-of-view. In fact, my brother-in-laws, both their final years of college, have mentioned to me and my […]
