So Giant Tiger came out with a reusable bag that has a QR code on it for specials and exclusive deals, I sent an email asking what do the people that don't own a smart phone do? Their answer+> Sorry nothing. I find this sad that our very small town GT store would cut off the people that most need a break, like seniors on fixed incomes, farmers and low income families, you know the people who CAN'T AFFORD A FUCKING CELL PHONE OF ANY KIND. Pisses me off just a little bit
Head over to my wee view for the chance to win this light weight stick vacuum with docking station. The Ergorapido also has a very special feature to eliminate hair tangle in the bristles, this alone may make me purchase it!
This was written on the Parent Club. ca blog "Think about the ways – big or small – you can help a family out…(I’ll give you some more keywords: donate, babysit, cook, volunteer, help, visit) and then comment, blog, tweet and so on to spread the buzz about making life easier for families this holiday season."
In our community we have the CAS that asks for donations of new toys to give to children at Christmas. We have a local food bank that we can donate non-perishable food, baby items like disposable diapers etc to, and each big grocery store has a box by the exit doors to put the items into. The local churches are always helping and a phone call to one of them will let you know what they need, and if you can't give financially, you can always donate your time. For the rest of the year there is something called Clothesline and they do regular pickups, you just need to have the gently used clothing, electronics and small household items packed up and at the end of your driveway for them. I keep a few boxes around so that I can put in items I can donate as I come across them.
And there is a payoff for doing this, it makes you feel really good.
