Day #5

Posted on: September 5, 2011

Since I had the time today, I figured I would go ahead and print off the coupons that I wanted from the internet today.  I try to do this when I have the time to actually sit down and think about what I might be using.  So while, I was printing them off today, I came across a few baby ones.  We don’t have a baby in my house, but I have a friend who is getting ready to have a baby and my cousin’s girlfriend is also pregnant.  So I figured I would take the time and print each of them off the coupons.  I figure if I can’t save on that product why not help others save on it.  Especially since it is things I am sure they will need, such as bottle, pacifiers, and clothes.   My friend was so excited when I dropped the coupons off, she said they had just realized that of all the things they got at their baby showers they only received 3 bottles, thus, they were going to have to run out this week and get them.

It’s amazing that using something I do every week or once a month can help a friend.

So I finished the book “29 Gifts, How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life” today. I have decided that I am going to start my 29 days on September the 1st. Mostly because in my life that is the New Year, everyone goes back to school, church goes back to being with Sunday School. It all just falls into place. The other reason is that way the holidays don’t get in the way of my new spirit and ideas, I will all ready be into the work when the holidays do come around.

29 Gifts is just the way I am starting a whole new idea about life and my happiness. I figure that by starting with the momentum of 29 gifts will lead nicely into “April’s Happiness Project”. That is what I am calling it, for right now. It is based on the book “The Happiness Project.” By keeping up a running list of the gifts that I give and they way it makes me and others feel, I will be able to go back to that when I am having a bad day and see all the good that I have done. Plus, I feel like this will help me to have a better understanding of myself.
