We received a letter from the Census Bureau yesterday, just to tell us that the Census form will arrive in about a week. And all I could think was, Was this really necessary?! When you add up the cost of sending out millions of these letters, it’s got to be a huge amount. And is the letter really going to change the minds of people who weren’t going to fill out the form anyway? The letter does make a compelling argument for filling out the form by saying that your community’s share of government funds depends on the responses to the Census. But couldn’t they just have put that information in a cover letter next week?
Amazon’s Video Game Deal of the Dayis Disney Fairies: Tinkerbell for the Nintendo DS at $14.99. Given the princess-obsessed girls I know, I’m thinking this would make a nice gift for some of them. Disclosure: I’m an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!
Amazon also has the Rubbermaid 8-Piece Produce Saver Seton sale for $12.98 (if it’s not the main price, you can find it for now in the other buying options to the right; if it’s not on the right, it’s probably out of stock). I have a few of these and they really do extend the life of produce, especially things that tend to be wet. The liquid collects at the bottom without touching the produce, which makes it great for cut produce, like strawberries, and even washed and dried blueberries (which last up to a week!).
