  • The 29-Day Giving Challenge: Day 25

    Today was Day 25 of my 29-Day Giving Challenge. I donated some food to the Stamp Out Hunger food drive, including $10 worth of food that I got for free at Walgreens by playing The Drugstore Game.

    I can’t believe there are only four more days left in the challenge!

    The 29-Day Giving Challenge: Day 24

    Today was Day 24 of my 29-Day Giving Challenge. I donated money to World Hope International to support their disaster relief efforts in Myanmar. I chose World Hope because I have donated to their microfinance program in the past.

    Don’t forget that tomorrow is Stamp Out Hunger Day and that your mail carrier will be picking up donations for local food banks when s/he comes to deliver your mail!

    The 29-Day Giving Challenge: Day 23

    Today was Day 23 of my 29-Day Giving Challenge. I sent a small gift to a friend today, hopefully it will brighten her day!

    The 29-Day Giving Challenge: Day 22

    Today was Day 22 of my 29-Day Giving Challenge. I sent ecards to the women in my moms group for Mother’s Day to let them know how much I value their friendship. We all have three-year-olds, and met at a breastfeeding support group in the first six months of our children’s lives. Even though we no longer get together weekly, we gather together a few times a year and it’s always such a wonderful, warm event. We also keep in regular contact via email, sharing anecdotes, photos and parenting advice. I know I’m very lucky to have these women in my life, and I just wanted to make sure they know that!

    The 29-Day Giving Challenge: Day 21

    Today was Day 21 of my 29-Day Giving Challenge. I donated a box of toys to the boys’ daycare today. (Yes! I actually remembered to take them out of the trunk!)

    I also ordered Mother’s Day gifts for both my own mother and my mother-in-law. Does that count? 😉

    The 29-Day Giving Challenge: Day 20 & a great photo coupon for Mother’s Day

    Today was Day 20 of my 29-Day Giving Challenge. I had lunch with one of my law school professors, and for once, she let me treat. So that was one gift.

    I had put some toys to donate to the boys’ daycare in the trunk, but naturally, I completely forgot to take them out. So that intended gift didn’t happen (hopefully, I’ll remember tomorrow!).

    I also came across such a fabulous deal that I’m going to risk giving away one of my mom’s Mother’s Day gifts just to share it with you (although maybe I’ll get lucky and she won’t read CFO this week). Yesterday’s weekly Walgreens circular included a coupon for a free 8×10 photo, a $2.99 value (the coupon should be printable here).

    However, the best part was that Freebies4Mom gave the promotional code, 4MOM, which you can use to order the free photo online. If you pick it up, it’s completely free. Standard shipping is 99 cents.

    The in-store coupon is only good on Wednesday, May 7. But you can order the photo online from now through Wednesday. And you just have to order it by Wednesday; you can always pick it up later. So don’t miss this great freebie!
