Monday Quote & In-Store Shopping Tips

Posted By: Terri
Category: Monday Mantra

Today’s quote is one that I hope will make you smile.

We have 10 days… count um..10 days until Xmas Eve and you know what that means…there’s ONLY 10 more days to FINISH all the shopping and prepping and decorating in time for Christmas.

If you’re one of those Super duper organized shoppers that is done with their Xmas shopping in May, well then my hats off to you.

However, if you haven’t started and/or trying to finish (and are dubious of the On line delivery times or just like to support local retailers) here are a  few  of my favorite In Store shopping tips to help you get that list done in nothing flat:

I don’t mean to brag…BUT I’m pretty good at this whole Support your “Local Retailer” Shopping thing…Favorite tips below.

  1. Make a list of EVERYONE you need to shop for. Don’t wing it and go from memory.  Brain fog is often known to happen when you come across a 70% off SALE sign.
  2. Make sure you have something to EAT and drink before you shop.
  3. Keep hydrated (Always carry a small bottle of water in your purse. (More times than not your thirsty and not hungry).
  4. Shop EARLY (right when the stores open) or as late in the day as your schedule and store hours allow.
  5. Stock is substantially diminished in stores this year. If you’re shopping and can’t decide between two items for someone…buy them both and return one after you’ve had time to consider which one is best.
  6. Use only one credit card for purchases during the holidays, and pay it off in full at the end of the month. You will not only have a complete record of what you’re bought during the holidays but it’s  easier and faster  to return an item on a charge card versus a debit card.
  7. ALWAYS get a gift receipt. 
  8.  If you’re mailing items from USPS.. Learn to use the free standing postal machines to weigh and stamp your items. You’ll avoid waiting in long lines and will be in and out of the Post Office Pronto.
  9. Prep your mailing packages:  Each package should be addressed, sealed/taped and ready to go when you get to the Post office. This will save you mountains of aggravation and time if you think ahead and have everything ready -prior to putting your item on the postal scale.
  10. When in doubt use the FLAT RATE boxes provided for FREE from the Post Office. More times than not this will save you money.

Happy Monday. I hope you had a good weekend and are starting another week feeling happy and healthy.

Last night I watched one of my favorite movies AGAIN, because quite frankly I needed a little lift  and I was reminded of this wonderful quote .

We must be the LEADING LADY  in our own life. Don’t take a back seat to anyone or anything. You have a wonderful purpose to pursue and my hope is that each day you will show up and live to be the best version of YOU.xoT

Quote from the movie The Holiday (2006)

Movie by one of my all time favorite talents.

Writer/Producer & Director Nancy Meyers.

As of late, I can’t help but notice a major upswing in people feeling hopeless.  We can all agree that 2020 hasn’t exactly panned out as we had hoped or planned. But I continue to pray that very soon things will start turning around and we can  have something to look forward too, plans to make, people to actually see without a mask and hugs to give. Until then, I hope you stay healthy and safe and perhaps consider making these words part of a morning mantra..  xoxoT

A message of Hope during these  challenging times….

Happy Monday!

I came upon this lovely quote  and thought it was the perfect reminder to get our week started off in the right direction and perhaps provide a modicum of hope, which I believe we are all in need of at this very moment.

We must continue to remain vigilant during this epidemic by wearing  face masks, being  mindful of social distancing and  do our best to avoid crowds.

It is my deepest hope that someday soon, everything will  work out (they will find a vaccine that works with no harmful side effects, jobs are restored and the economy stars flourishing again) when  we can finally embrace a world that is  kinder, healthier, happier and more abundant  than ever before.

Here’s to hope!

Happy Monday. I hope you had a relaxing weekend!

Another week is upon us and as hard as it may be to stay motivated while we continue to live in Pandemic limbo (at least that’s what I call it) – I find that’s  it’s a good  idea to start the work week off  with a renewed sense of focus.  During these times of lock down- it’s good to keep your “eye on the prize” as they say and focus yourself at the start of each week on a plan of success.  Here’s the”short list” of streamlined items to keep you focused on bringing out the best in you.

Hello Monday! A new week and I hope and pray this week will bring more peace and happiness to all .

These have been challenging times to say the least. We are still dealing with this horrible virus and just as we began to reemerge into some sort of “new normal” the tragic and senseless death of George Floyd  brought about  protests, violence and anger in our nation.

I do not consider violence a solution on any level but support Peaceful Protests for positive change. At the end of the day, I hope and pray that the world will become a kinder and more caring place in which we try to understand and settle our differences with understanding and love.

Wishing you a healthy. happy and productive week ahead with many moments filled with love. .
