Helping Japan

I am a small group leader for a group of High School and again for an 8th grade group of girls for our youth group. Teens are such great people! They have a desire to serve and help others. Last night my 8th graders discussed that they want to do a service project for Japan and what that looked like! I promised them that I would take their ideas and do some research. One girl wanted to buy a tshirt where the money goes to Japan but we can still support it here. Here is what I found and more!

Delia"s Support Japan Tshirt
The Advantage Company
Pray for Japan Facebook page

It can be scarey to give to companies that you don't know so here is some advice!
Avoid Japan Giving Scams!

Here are some reputable companies that you can donate safely with.
World Vision
Salvation Army
Red Cross
Convoy of Hope

I will continue to search for ideas and let me know if you have any! I do love the idea of a bake sale:)

I haven't really even touched on the whole Groupon sensation that is sweeping the internet but it is amazing! I have to go out of town for work today so I will go into it later but for now here is a great link to a Groupon for Ebay. You pay $7 and get a $15 credit toward an Ebay purchase! I bought this one yesterday, looks like you still can! Check it out and browse through the other cities to see if there is one for yours!

I love the Pink section of Victoria's Secret for their sweats and yoga pants! Today, if you purchase anything at the store or online, you can receive 2 Rewards cards worth at least $10 but could be $50, $100, or $500. I gained a few of these at Christmas time and used them to get lotions and for free or cheap underwear. Online, they let you use up to 3 coupon codes upping the savings. You can find these codes on I got this tip from They are a great source too! Check it out! I am about to:)

Magazine Addiction

Hi, my name is Dawn, and I am completely addicted to magazines! Now that I have found free or cheap subscriptions on the internet it has only accerlerated the "problem"! Oh dear! The other day, my husband got the mail and found that I had sent him a Salt Water Fishing magazine. Uh.....we live in Wisconsin! But it was free was my response with as cute as a smile as I could:) He walked away shaking his head and laughing! He understands me! This story was to let you know how seriously I love magazines! Now you are asking yourself, "How can I get free or cheap magazine subscriptions?" Of course I will tell you!

I pay attention to and everyday. The are great at alerting us to the cheap subscriptions in the deal area and check out the free forum for the free ones. There are company like Mercury Magazine, Rewards Inc., and  Also, Blue Dolphin, and Amazon have cheap subscriptions all the time. Cheap to me is $5.00 and under. Yesterday, I got Elle, and Elle decor for a year free from Rewards, Inc. and 2 months of People for free from Mercury magazines. At the end of Mercury's info area, they often tell you that you qualify for other mags for $2 and they tell you how many you can receive. I purchased 6 subscriptions for $12. Pay attention the fine print. Often that means auto renewal at regular price unless you cancel. They will send you an email to let you know when it is time to renew. A bit of work but worth it!

I just found out that you can get 4 years of Weight Watchers Magazine for $11.96! That is a huge deal! Regualar price would be $47.96. Here is the link Discount Magazines. At checkout put MYBARGAINBUDDY for the code. That will give you the discount. This is just for today so act quick. This came from another great website that you should check out called She has great deals and will send emails of the deals she finds!

Rue La La

I just love the name! This website has higher end taste but sometimes you can find a great deal! There are some travel ideas also. Right now you can get tickets to the NCAA Championship games for about 1/3rd off. Crazy I know but for some people, like my basketball crazed family, it might be worth it! Check it out, sign up, and you could earn some credits to purchase something free or cheaper by creating your own link.

Read it Forward!

Here is another great find! I love to read and I love to tell others about what I read, good or bad! That is what this website wants. You can win a free book, read it, and give a review. On the back of the book is a sticker that tells you to write a quick review and pass it to someone else to do the same. Sign up for the emails and you will be alerted every time there is a new book to win. I have applied for about 10 and won 1. Not bad odds. I hope that I get this one and even if I don't, I will purchase it. I enjoy World War II literature. Maybe I can pass this on to my students someday.


This is the next selection! Check it out!
