What To Do With Gift Cards To Stores You Don’t Like?

Social Soiree introduced me to the site Plastic Jungle. I knew there was such a thing out there but I wasn’t really sure about it. If you’re like me you have gift cards to stores you don’t really shop at. Or maybe not, because you don’t suck at shopping like I do.

Evidently you can sell your unwanted gift cards at a reputable site, not just Craig’s List or online auction sites. And what’s pretty cool too is you can buy someone else’s discards – AT A DISCOUNT! Why didn’t I think of this?

So if you have gift cards in your purse (or a pile on your desk) see if you can get some money for them. Sure you might not get 100% value for it but it’s better than nothing. As I tell BabyGirl all the time – 50% of something is usually better than 100% of nothing. I know, my wisdom is mind boggling.

Of course, I could just tell you to send me the gift cards and I could sell them at the Indoor Swap Market (it’s too hot to be hawkin’ wares outdoors!) but that won’t help you save for your someday. And yes, you could always donate them, but if you were going to do that you’d have done that a long time ago.

Dial up the interwebs to Plastic Jungle and get shopping!

Totsy Review and Gorgeous Amy Kathryn Bag Giveaway [CLOSED]

I love a great deal, as you can probably imagine. And I know you love a great deal too. But now that BabyGirl is now into that tween part of her life I’ve felt that many of the online deal sites were leaving me behind. I don’t have a baby, I’m not pregnant and I don’t wear high-fashion clothing.

So when Totsy approached me to try their site I was a bit skeptical, afterall it has the word ‘tot’ in the name. But I was assured that although the site may be geard toward moms with younger kids that Totsy does have things I’d really want too. OK, I’ll try!

  • Totsy is an online private-sale site dedicated to offering apparel, gear, accessories and more for moms, kids and families. You get invited by a friend and then you set up your account. It’s not some secret society and you won’t get 800 emails a day or anything like that.
  • Up to 90% off merchandise on top-name brands. Yes, indeed! Huge savings! I’ve order BabyGirl some shoes and outfits for the Fall at about 60% off retail. Not the 90% that some of the deals have, but a significant savings nonetheless. I’ve yet to find something for myself, but then again, I have that shopping issue (see above!)
  • Totsy employs sustainable “green” business practices. Totsy plants a tree in honor of your child when you make your first purchase and so far, they have planted over 25,000 trees in Peru! It may not seem like much, but I want to suppor companies that are at least trying to be good environmental citizens while saving me a few bucks.
  • You get Totsy credits for free when you invite your friends to join! When your friend receives their first purchase, you will receive $15 in Totsy credits. That’s pretty great, isn’t it?

Now for the Giveaway!

Win a beautiful Amy Kathryn Geranium Hobo Bag (retail value $100)!

Totsy has offered to give one of my readers this lovely handbag. Being that this is Year of Awesome 2.0 I wanted to share something with you that you’d truly think was, well, Awesome! Perfect for any time of the year, this top-zip bag is both practical and stylish.

Father’s Day Gift Suggestions

Fathers day photo

When it comes to Father’s Day, we’re not a go all out kind of family. It’s really a day for CycleGuy and BabyGirl to do something special together. But I know that it’s important to have something for dad to open.

Car Wash KitPut together a Car Wash Kit and include a few homemade coupons for a free car wash in the driveway. This could be a great bonding time for the kids and dad!

BBQ Tools imageBBQ Tools – A quality set of BBQ tools can make grilling much nicer. We grill all year, so when I was looking for a quality set I knew what I wanted. They may looks nice, but the real measure of BBQ tools is how they perform day in and day out.

Sports equipment – Whether the dad in your life could spend all day out on the green, loves the batting cages, or could ride his bike for hours, some new athletic gear could be just the thing for active fathers.

Sports apparel –  Every dad loves to root for “his” team, and with some new team specific garments, he can really get into the spirit of the game!  Tickets to a game in your area would go great with this gift as well.

New wallet – Treat the dad in your life to an awesome wallet. This one isn’t expensive but it is so cool. Called The Big Skinny because it is amazingly thin, you’ll feel good knowing he’ll be more comfortable carrying his wallet. CycleGuy has had a few of these over the years and he swears by them!

Home Entertainment – Gather some of the best new DVDs together, such as American Dad, Street Kings 2, and of course, Big Momma’s House; Like Father Like Son, and combine them all together along with some popcorn to create a fun package for a family movie night on your couch

Yes, another deal site! This time it’s higher-end things I think you’ll really like. I’ve been shopping at HauteLook for quite awhile, checking it out. And I have to say I’ve been impressed not only with the brand names but also their customer service.

 

 

Today they have one of the cutest lip balms you’ll ever buy! Twist & Pout lip balm is made in the USA and are little fashionable globes that will be more fashion accessory than bottom of your purse necessity.

So don’t wait, check out HauteLook today. I’m sure you’ll find lots of great things. And if there isn’t something there today, they’re adding new things often so you’ll want to get on their email list.
