You already know how I like to try and get Gymboree clothes for free, because I'm a cheapskate like that, right? And that I gets cray cray bargains from Goodwill in a seemingly magical way (just put "goodwill" in the searchbar on the right. I can't even link to all the smokin' deals we've scored there), yes? Well this year, for Christmas, besides the free gymbo clothes and the smokin' Goodwill deals, I'm going to try and buy my gifty gifts from small, independent businesses- like mamas with Etsy shops and that lady with the knick-knack store who also sells cloth diapering stuff. And yes, try and do it on the cheap at the same time. It may mean fewer (but better!) gifts, but I'm cool with that.
(2)See, I was inspired yesterday by this post enticingly entitled You can be president today!, written in the spirit of "no politician should ever be considered our savior and WE are the ones who must bring light and love to the world". That's a real spirit, trust me. A challenging, beautiful, get-off-your-butts spirit. And supporting your friends personally during this season is one way to live this spirit in your life.
Speaking of which, not a single link to shops in my sidebar is a paid sponsorship. Those all belong to actual people I know and love. And if you are someone I know and love who has your own small business and would like to put a button in my "shop with my friends" section for the next two months let me know. It costs Free Ninety-Free.
(3)So if you know of a shop or have a shop that would provide me with hours of perusing enjoyment as I track down fab treats for my 5 children and husband and anyone else who's (un)lucky enough to have me as their secret Santa giver person, pop it in the comments, okey dokey?
If you haven't guessed that I love stupid comedies...welcome! You must be new here!
(5)Oh yes, Office Space is easily in my top 10, perhaps top 5, movies of all time. And guess what? Glory of glories, it's on Cari's list too! Which means there's only one thing to do:
Live Tweet Viewing Next Friday night. Hashtag (duh) #OfficeSpace
Put it on your calendars, peeps. Time TBD.
What? You don't wanna stare at your screen watching us type out lines from a movie that either you a) already know by heart or b) have never even heard of? Well why don't you join in then???? That's right- Netflix, baby!
Awesome graphic Donaldson style coming soon, but you go ahead and collect your costumes and props and memorize your favorite lines and craft meme-style photos to share, okay? Okay.
Unrelated but hilarious video for your viewing pleasure...
Mucho thanksos to Housewifespice for this little gem :)
