Charity, Financial, general, Uncategorized
Happy New Year!  I'm so excited even though the weather today isn't the prettiest it sure is nice to to be home and rest with the family.   Plus we are going to make my version of the Starbucks Ginger Bread Latte!  Cheers! I just wanted to send a quick reminder to everyone that it is Dec 31st, which means you should complete any 2009 donations today!   There are so many charities that need help and even it is a, $1 or $5 it is so appreciated by those that don't have much.   Plus, most charities are tax-deductible which can help with 2009 taxes.  Giving is worth it!

CVS and Staples are having a lot of free or cheap school or office supplies.  It is that time of year again!  Plus, you donate some of them too.   In our area, so many schools need supplies more than ever.  It is so helpful for parents and volunteers to help their teachers and students out. Click HERE for the Staples ad. A couple things to note about the Staples ad the 1 cent items are only through Wednesday. The best part is if you buy all of the $1 items and the 1 cent items you should reach the $20 min for the coupon. So, after the 2 paper 3.68 rebates and the $5 coupon it should cost about $7.64! Plus, make sure you use or get the staples reward…
